HP Officejet 4355 All-in-One

Specifications
1200 x 1200 dpi optical resolution; sheet-fed scanner; 100-sheet input tray; dialpad; handset



Our Verdict
The Officejet 4355 is a true MFD, with printer, scanner, copier, and handset rolled into one. The interface is easy and intuitive. A small monochrome LCD display on the front keeps you updated about the assigned task and its status. Though not the fastest printer in its category, it more than makes up with very good print quality-in fact, the best print quality in its category. With its photo-printing ability, it gives more expensive printers a run for their money. Colour reproduction is far more accurate than that seen in the competition. Copying quality is more of the same story. You can reduce the size of copies to 25 per cent or enlarge it up to 400 per cent. Combining its good performance with its price and the support provided by HP, this do-it-all easily qualifies for the Zero1 Award.

HP Officejet 5610 All-in-One

Specifications
1200 x 2400 dpi optical resolution; flatbed and sheet-fed scanner; 100-sheet input tray; automatic document feeder; dialpad; USB 2.0 interface



Our Verdict
The HP Officejet 5610 All-in-One can scan A4-size media at a resolution of 1200 x 2400 dpi. It has the best print quality in its category. Along with regular documents, it is at home printing photographs as well. It gave us the best-quality photo prints at a relatively faster speed. Copy quality is average, and it allows you to reduce or enlarge copies from 25 per cent to 400 per cent. This MFD is bit expensive for its category, but it's worth the money.

Professional Inkjet MFDs

Brother MFC-5840CN

Specifications
1200 x 2400 dpi optical resolution; flatbed and sheet-fed scanner; 350-sheet input tray; automatic document feeder; dialpad, multi-card reader; Ethernet port; USB 2.0 interface



Our Verdict
This is one cool performer for a professional environment. With its decent printing speed and print quality, it can take on fairly heavy workloads. Unique among its peers is the 350-sheet input tray. With a monthly duty cycle of 3,000 pages, it is an ideal choice for professionals. Thanks to the standard Ethernet port, you can deploy it over a network. The card reader allows you to print directly from memory cards without having to use your computer. The dialpad and dedicated fax button are very convenient. The MFC-5840CN is also priced competitively in its category-an ideal Zero1 Award winner!
