top 3 color laser printer

In this article we are going to focus on multi-function (print-scan-copy-fax) colour laser printers, following up from our previous edition of the Top 3 Best Laser Printer for Home & Office (Monochrome Series) found Here

Colour laser printers are generally pricier in nature, are usually targeted at micro to small businesses with a myriad of printing needs and of mid printing usage capacity. These are not heavy-duty laser printers but they serve the needs of small businesses very well. Here are our Top 3 Multi-Function Colour Laser Printers, not in chronological order. Most importantly, this is NOT A SPONSORED POST from any original brand owners.

What we like and not like?

We like this laser printer as it packs all the essential functions a small business owner required at a very reasonable pricing. Duplex, wireless connection, generous internal paper tray, document feeder, mobile printing and fax capabilities. Its 3.7-inch touch screen LCD screen adds a further dimension of user friendliness to the machine.

Adding on, the continuing cost for a set of compatible premium toner cartridge is only ~SGD $140 per set of 4 with free delivery. (The original retails at ~SGD $469/ set).

What we do not like about this machine is its bulkiness. It weighs a hefty 23.6kg, definitely something ladies would consider again. However, as this printer is wi-fi enabled, there is less need to shift it around constantly since everyone can connect seamlessly from their comfort zone within the stipulated connection distance

On a side note, you can do a quick comparison to model DCP-L3551CD. This Brother model is practically same as MFC-L3750CDW in terms of functionality. The only subtle difference is the LCD screen which enhances the user experience and better specs like faster print speed plus the additional fax function which not all users require it. It is priced slightly cheaper at SGD $450

HP LaserJet Pro MFP178nw Laser Printer

HP LaserJet Pro MFP178nw ~SGD$329

  • Print-Scan-Copy
  • Wireless Network
  • Print Speed up to 19ppm
  • Mobile Printing
  • Internal Paper Tray (Up to 150pcs)
  • 2 liner LCD Screen
  • Weighs 12.9kg
  • Print Resolution up to 600*600 dpi
  • Affordable Toner Cartridge

What we like and not like?

We like this HP laser printer for its portability and it weighs a mere 12.9kg (almost 50% lighter than the MFC-L3750CDW). It is highly manageable to any user. We also like HP MFP178nw for its price point for a colour laser printer which does basic print-scan-copy. This is a very attractive price point for young budding entrepreneurs or light to mid home office users who do not want to spend a bomb but yet able to enjoy the various basic colour laser printer features

One area to highlight which was sorely missing is the ability to do duplex printing and ADF (auto document feeder). This is especially important for the small business owner or home office user as it helps increase efficiency by avoiding time wasting manual work and wasteful printing. The print speed is also slightly slower at up to 19ppm as compared to the previous recommendation. Ongoing cost for a set of premium toner cartridge is only $150/set (Original retails at $383/set).

Canon ImageClass MF641CW Laser Printer

Canon ImageClass MF641CW ~SGD$479

  • Print-Scan-Copy
  • Wireless Connection
  • Print Speed up to 18ppm
  • 5 inch LCD touch screen panel
  • Print Resolution Up to 1,200*1,200 dpi
  • Mobile Printing
  • Internal Paper Tray (Up to 250pcs)
  • Weighs 16.8kg

What we like and not like?

We like this model for its 5-inch colour touch screen display. To the user, it will be a breeze to navigate through the settings and many functions can be perform on the printer instead of relying on the software in the computer to perform the task. Another area is the relative light weight of the printer which makes the printer highly manageable to the user

What we do not like about this printer is the lack of ability to do duplex printing plus the absence of a document feeder. What this means for the user is great inconvenience when it comes to printing, scanning or photo copying. Another area of concern is the on-going toner cost. For a set of premium compatible toner cartridge, that will set you back by ~SGD $280 per set for a high yield version (Originals retails at SGD $515 per set). It is still a significant savings from originals but pale in comparison to the previous 2 models recommended.

In summary, in terms of cost to value perspective, we would choose the Brother MFC-L3750CDW for its power pack functions and good pricing as well as the sustainable ongoing toner cost. However, if your requirements are more scaled towards portability and affordability, then HP MFP178nw printer will fit the bill perfectly.
