How we test

For non-multifunction printers, our overall score comprises print quality (90%), energy use (5%), and networking (5%).

For multifunction printers, our overall score comprises print quality (63%), scanning (13.5%), copying (13.5%), energy use (5%), and networking (5%).

We don’t retest older printers. To account for their age, each year we alter their overall and individual scores. This can affect whether a printer maintains recommended or worth considering status.
