Top five cheapest printers to run [updated]

Most expensive printers to run

A set of printer cartridges could easily set you back £40, so it’s important to consider ink running costs when buying a printer.

Keeping ink costs down is a high priority when it comes to home printing. That’s why we test printers for running costs as well as quality, speed and ease of use.

By comparing the number of pages printed in our labs, with the amount of ink used and cost of the cartridges, we can work out how many pennies worth of ink is used on each printed text, graphics and photo page.

The below printers are those that achieved the lowest ink costs per page. However, given that a home printer is only likely to be used occasionally, they may not be the best for infrequent use. Be sure to read each printer’s full review, or see our comprehensive advice guide, to find out which printers perform best when only used on occasion.

1. Samsung Xpress M2825DW

Samsung Xpress M2825DW printer

If you’re looking for a mono laser printer this Samsung Xpress M2825DW may appeal. This Samsung mono laser printer is great for printing quick text pages. It can’t print in colour and it doesn’t scan and copy, but printing costs are very low if you’re printing a lot in one go.

It is wi-fi connected too, but if you don’t need wi-fi you could go for the similar Samsung Xpress M2825ND for around £20 less.

2. HP Officejet Pro 276dw

HP Officejet Pro 276dw printer

This slightly bulky-looking officey HP inkjet printer is packed with features. It can print, copy, scan and fax. The automatic document feeder (ADF) on top of the printer can handle double-sided pages too, so you can save on paper as well as keeping costs down if you print lots in one go.

It’s a wi-fi printer with memory card slots and a preview screen, so you can print photos direct from a memory card without having to use your computer.

3. Brother MFC-J4510DW

Brother MFC-J4510DW printer

This printer may be more than a year old, but it’s still a goodie. It can print on pages up to A3 size, although the scan/copy glass is only big enough for up to A4 size pages. It also has wi-fi and ethernet connections, so you’ll easily be able to print from a number of wireless devices on your home network.

Like the HP, it has an automatic document feeder (ADF) on top for scanning, copying and faxing multiple page documents, but this Brother one can’t automatically scan and copy double-sided. Photo prints are relatively low cost, but use an additional 11p-worth of ink compared with the HP model.

Brother MFC-J4510DW – see the full review for our definitive verdict.

4. Epson Workforce WF-3520DWF

Epson Workforce 3520DWF printer

This Epson’s running costs are pretty good when printing lots in one – indeed, it’s the best Epson inkjet in our tests for printing costs under these printing conditions. That said, its photo print quality falls far from the best we’ve ever tested.

The WF-3520DWF includes a fax function, has wi-fi connectivity and like the other inkjet printers here it has auto-duplexing – so you can set it up to automatically print on both sides of a page.

Epson Workforce WF-3520DWF – read the full review for exact details on its print quality.

5. Canon Pixma MG5550

Canon Pixma MG5550 printer

The Canon Pixma MG5550 is the cheapest printer to buy of the five here, priced at less than £100. It doesn’t scrimp on features either. It has automatic double-sided printing, wi-fi connectivity and the ability to print wirelessly from smartphones using operating systems that are compatible with Canon’s print apps.

Text prints look good from this inkjet printer, even if it is a bit noisy to use. If you’re printing lots in quick succession, this is one of Canon’s cheaper printers to use.

Costs depend on what you print

The printer that’s cheapest for you will depend on how much of each type of document you print and how frequently you print.

The printers above are cheap to run based on test data from our continuous-print, ink-cost-per-page test. The printer with the highest ink costs per page used £81-worth of ink on printing our 310 text, graphics and photo test pages, compared with just £11 for cheapest model.

Printing occasionally can increase ink running costs five-fold for the most wasteful printers – something we also test for with our occasional printing test. For more information about ink running costs see all our advice on printers, ink and cheap prints.

  1. i have a Epson P50 inkjet printer,that will will not accept compatable cartridges, i have taken it to many computer shops that were saying they could fix it, and it came back still not working, so be careful when buying oem cartridges,i will not buy Epson cartridges that will cost me more than my printer costs me to buy,at the moment i run a cheap HP that cost me about 40£, and the cartridges are not to expensive to buy i will stay clear of Epson printers. Nutty Norm

    1. I have an Epson Stylus Sx235W. It’s makers ink is ridiculously expensive and does not print half the number of pages it claims. I have now purchased three different generic cartridges but only one single cartridge was accepted once by the printer, but only for a couple of weeks before it was rejected. None of the others were accepted. Waste of another £25 pounds. Had identical problem with the last two HP printers (HP F380 and F2280).

      Time for the regulators to wake up and put a firm end to this unfair pricing and gross exploitation. I would rather pay more for the printer and less for the ink but do we have a choice?

    2. Mr Norman, the P50 uses specific photographic dye based ink, which is researched and designed for use on photographic purposes. if you are printing photos then use the oem inks, non oem inks are not designed with the printer in mind so be prepared for your printer to break sooner rather than expected. rocket fuel is cheaper per ml than HP ink bear that in mind.

    3. At this moment in time I am having a nightmare with my Epson P50, It just rejects compatible ink yet when I first got the printer it did work with compatible inks then after a while it started to reject the black, every now and then I would have to try and insert the black up to ten times before it worked, then all of a sudden it just rejected all color’s so I just gave up with the printer.

      After leaving it off for a couple of weeks I thought I would go and buy some inks and decided on Tesco’s own, now these still are not cheap £43 for a set or £54 for genuine Epson so I thought for that price they should be spot on with working in the printer even though they are Tesco’s own.

      I got home and placed all inks inside the printer and it worked!
      Then after one print would you believe it the printer stopped and rejected all the inks inside the printer, took them all out, shoved them in all at the same time and it worked! Then rejected the yellow after one print, took it out then put it back in a few times and then it worked, so lets see how long it takes for it to go nuts again.

      ALL I can say is what a nightmare Epson printers are. Not only have I bulk bought compatible inks which are now useless I have another Epson printer that does the same (Epson BX305F) which will not accept compatible inks either. At £36+ for BX305F inks and individual inks at £11+ I swear Epson inks are shockingly high priced and for running a business they are a high costly overhead.

      I have used internet sites to buy genuine inks but still had the same problem with ink cartridges not working and was loosing quite a bit of money having to just chuck them out, I would have sent them back but it costs me to do so. :(

      Moral of me writing this: EPSON lower your prices you money grabbing BLEEEEEPPPPP

    4. Use your printers original cartridges and fill them yourself. This solves any compatibility issue and practice makes perfect, it is easy to do.

      I have done this with laser printers and inkjets that give me trouble with compatible, AND i provided extra service for my clients for this service too.

      There are many options.
      Cappy

    5. It’s because their ink cartridges are chipped so your printer knows if you have inserted a genuine overpriced Epsom or a cheaper non-branded ink cartridge.. Lexus are the same..I think they are all doing it :( Should be legislated against to prevent them holding us to ransom!

    6. Totally agree. Have had to Epson printers in the past and they have both been terrible. I print occasionally, and Epsons are particularly bad at this as for cartridges dry out if no printing occurs for 3 or 4 weeks. the guy in the print shop explained that this problem, are unique to Epsons, arises from the fact that the printheads are built into the printer rather than the cartridge. My friends had Canons and HPs and they never experienced this. Suffice to say, my Epson is now in the bin and I have converted to HP.

  2. Webout bought an Epson photo stylus 720 WD last year. Initially it was great but as soon as the supplied ink ran out and we had to change cartridges it was never the same again. Photo prints were always striped and missing colours. We might occasionally get a reasonable print one immediately after cleaning and aligning the heads but the next usage would give a bad one again. We always bought the (exorbitantly priced) Epson cartridges, followed the instructions for cleaning and alignment and changed the setup to match the various papers we tried, but it was a losing battle. Further, it recently rejected a brand new Epson cartridge. I contacted support and they decided it was a bad cartridge and I had to go out and buy another because the printer old not even print plain text without it. I complained to Epson who said I needed to contact the supplier as it is under guarantee. The supplier was very good about it and has agreed to a refund. We won’t be replacing it with another Epson. It just shouldn’t be this hard or expensive, given how long inkjet technology has been around.

  3. i will never have another epson printer even as a gift they are nothing but trouble, i have had nothing but bother from the time the supplied ink ran out. i have tried various compatible inks with no success.so gave it up as lost cause and purchased kodak printer instead.what a difference

  4. I’m afraid I agree with the three previous comments. I have an Epson Stylus Photo R200. Epson printers are great until something goes wrong which will inevitably happen as they are designed to fail after so many prints. It then costs you more to get it serviced and repaired at one of their repair centres that it doesn’t make it economical to do so. These are for parts etc that should be user servicable and also for known built in design flaws like the ink counter fault. Contacting Epson for Support only results in them soliciting to you and giving sales pitches for their latest printers or to try and sell you ink when that was never even mentioned or an issue. I’m quite happy with the Jet Tec ink which isn’t a ripp off like the Epson. In the end this poor treatment of customers by Epson such sends them away and to buy HP or Canon products instead.

    My trouble now is how do I find a good photo inkjet printer that also can print well onto cds, dvds, blu ray discs? There aren’t many that can do this. I may have to settle on a Canon model now.

    1. I too have used JetTec cartridges for years on a succession of Epson printers. Usually OK, but occasionally have had problems. I refuse to pay Epson’s exorbitant prices for 5ml (one teaspoon) of ink! And why should I not be able to print a black and white copy without having a full set of colour cartridges in place? I have not, however, had mechanical problems despite heavy usage, as reported by some users.
      Problem encountered with Jessops matt double sided photo paper (which gives amazingly bright colour prints); it fails to feed after a few prints as the coating seems to cover the feed wheels. Any alternatives?

  5. I own an Epson SX515W which I purchased 2 to 3 years ago, I have never been able to use compatible cartridges, I have just purchased and installed an Epson T0711 black cartridge and it will not print, I have done all the maintenance procedures and nothing, this is the 5th time it has happened and each time I have had to take it to a Epson repair centre. I am now just about to throw it away it is just not worth the hassle.

    1. HI Brian, the sx range is very consumer orientated for users who print very irregularly. like all manufacurers, a cheap printer will cost you more in ink (or toner) as the printers themselves are sold at a loss. if they are making a loss, dont expect the built quality to be mightily impressive.
      i believe Epson have very strict patents and legislations against the manufacture of compatible inks.

  6. I find it quite worrying that an organisation such as Which can recommend a brand of printer which has serious customer satisfaction and reputation issues such as those outlined in the earlier comments. Oh, and the use of an English (UK) spell checker would be helpful for your contributors.

  7. I have used Epsons for a couple of years and find them excellent. Buy a CISS system and printing becomes so cheap its amazing. I only buy the cheap printers SX235 x1 and SX25x2 and have had them 2 years with no problems, excellent prints and cheap if you use CISS. I agree they can be fiddly at times but follow the head cleaning and alignment services and they work well and last well, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.

    1. I don’t work for epson nor have any connection with them, doubt anyone connected with epson would recommend a ciss system……….

  8. I have an HP Officejet Pro 8500 the printer will not print black copies if one of the color cartrages is out of ink…. I replaced the very expensive color and having NEVER printed anything in color it is now telling me the color cartrages AGAIN need to be replaced……these are pressurized and very hard to refill…..

  9. Im looking for a new printer as The Epson I got for last christmas only printed a handful of pages before it ran out of black ink – now I have wasted money on cartrges that are not compatible – cannot afford epson as they have chips in the ink cartriges ( allegedy or apparently) they have some circuitry on the side that that i can see which maybe tells the computer that the ink has finished.

    I was amazed to see Epson in this line up- I need to print only a few documents – i had a cannon years ago and that seemed to print a few hundred per cartidge , I thought that was bad ! Im stuck with a pile of junk – i need a good printer !

  10. I agree with all the comments re Epson ink jets. Bought two SX435Ws and both have malfunctioned. Yellow just will not print despite following cleaning routines umpteen times. Worked ok initially with generic cartridges but cannot do that now and pathetic EPson rip off has kicked in. Ridiculous that a pack of inks which last no time at all costs nearly as much as the printer. Never again Epson.

    1. I was recommended many years ago to buy the Epson Stylus Photo RX 420 3 in 1. I have never regretted it. He also said to buy compatibles from a particular firm. I always use them they are marvellous and always replace if any don’t work ( only happened twice) and will send a complete set. The cost of them varies but my last set I bought in October 2012 were only 98p each. The printer is used all the time as I make cards, do letterheads for people and the photocopier is often on the go. So cannot understand the adverse comments.

    2. Got the same printer and agree with your comments,trouble is i upgraded to windows8 and my printer will not do most thongs now.will only print from docs stored in my files.been onto epson and they said will not be doing any drivers for said model for windows8.stuck now with just a basic printer,reluctant to change because of ink costs for new ones.
      Disappointed

    3. Hi Guys

      you should be able to sort this out using compatibility mode.

      Open Windows Explorer and right-click on the driver .exe file: select Troubleshoot Compatibility and let the utility run.
      When completed, select Troubleshoot the Program and choose ‘The program worked in earlier versions of Windows…’.
      Choose Windows 7 or which version you had previously.
      Click Next and follow the on screen dialogs. I certainly got both my Canon printer Win7 driver and Edim,ax wireless dongle to work perfectly in Win 7 Compatibility mode.

  11. I have a epson DX8400 all in one,it also does not like cheap compatable inks i throught that i would have to get a new printer, as the page print was rubbish, then after changing back to orginal cartridges and playing with the set up i have now got it to print like new again.
    I am thinking of buying anouther printer with cheaper ink cartrige replacments £36 for full set of inks the printer only cost £50
    i think that these inks are a rip off at this cost

  12. When will everyone wake up?? The printer manufacturer’s are only interested in selling replacement ink. They are prepared to make losses on printer costs in order to get customers hooked up to regular inks, this is where they make their money.

  13. I bought a Kodak Hero 5.1 on the strength of the then Which? review and because it did auto-duplex printing. I’ve been disappointed as it frequently has paper jams and now seems to be failing to print black clearly despite running all the maintenance options possible. Kodak suggest a new printhead could cure the problem (no guarantee though) and now I’m really annoyed as they offer that for $32 in the U.S. and Canada and want £32 here in the U.K. I’ve never seen the $-£ exchange rate at 1-1 so what are they playing at? I don’t think I’ll ever buy a Kodak printer again.

    1. Everything UK/US is £/$ We are totally being ripped off. iPhones and iPads even worse!

      Bought a TomTom car kit in US some years ago for my iPhone in iStore for $59.99 in UK was £99.99. And take in an iPhone with a cracked screen!

  14. I’m running a old HP Deskjet 895c from 1997, when I was at collage!

    I did buy a new printer about 2 years ago but the ink cartrages kept clogging, and I had to do several cleaning cycles and he ink was gone, recon only printed about 30 pages of text.

    Went to buy some new cartrages for it reluctantly and it would of been £15 for black ink alone. Noticed the drivers for my old printer had been released so perched a ink cartage for that for £5 and it still going now! I get color photos done online as I think it’s cheaper.

  15. i have epson style c45 printer.,printer’s carteges are very chip but unfortunately only 20 to 30 print out can be made with 1 set of cartage., this is getting too expensive for me., any suggestion for printer that , with 1 set of cartage 100 of print out can be made., cos i m seek of buying cartage that only can print upto 20 print out ( epson c -45)

  16. Where did Lexmark go on this list. I have my Lexmark for years and it is sooo economical! Buy black ink every 6 months… Print about 20 pages a day, do the maths…

  17. hi. all of your comments are discouraging when it comes to using epson printers. i promise you, once you get attached to continous inking system, you will all feel different at how much money you will save with epson printers. am using epson stylus p50 for heavy duty printing with ciss and i earn very good money. contact me on advise and you would not regret. i dont sell any printer or ciss so not to worry about me earning anything from anyone. google ciss on epson p50 and learn more. thanks

    1. Huh! I have been using CIS system and although the ink is relatively cheap by the 5l, the cost of replacement heads is hundreds. Try buying a HP11 based printer and watch it eat heads. Every 12 reams of paper you are onto another head and at over £30 each (and there are 4), it gets very expensive! Aren’t there any really cheap to run secondhand inkjet printers out there?
      The cheapest printing ever must be the old HP4500 lasers where bits on ebay are give away. They are massive heavy beasts but go on and on. I have done flyers on one and left it running for a whole week 24/7.I would prefer something a bit faster now – say 30ppm rather than 4.
      As for mono lasers…aren’t the toners on those HP’s now all chipped? I keep a HP4+ running and the carts on that are refillable and no chips. One cart can use up to 0.5kg of toner before it is u/s. You can also buy new rebuild kits and put new doctors and drum into them.

  18. I am more confused than ever which is best to buy. Surely there must be a best buy out there for moderate use and economical cartridges. Can anyone please point me in the right direction.

  19. I bought 2 Kodak AiO printers as they were supposed to be the best for ink costs. This might well be true but within 18 months of purchase both malfunctioned. The problem was with the print heads and the only place I could purchase these was direct from Kodak at around £35 each which totally negated any savings. Decided to cut my losses and bought 2 Canon Pixmas which have proved to be totally acceptable

  20. We had the same problem with my daughter’s Kodak printer. We were convinced by the sales assistant that a kodak printer would be more economical but after a comparatively short time the print head went wrong and we decided not to replace it considering how cheap it is to buy a new printer. personally I think it’s appalling how quickly printers have to be replaced, both from a financial and an ecological point of view.

  21. I love my Brother MFC-5895CW printer. It is so cheap to run because each of the inks can be replaced separately (instead of having to replace all the inks at once and having to chuck a perfectly good cartridge with loads of coloured ink left in it.) I use compatible inks with mine that only cost £5 to replace each and print 450 A4 pages, so for someone like me that mainly uses black ink it’s perfect! The printer was quite pricey at over £100 pounds but it has paid for itself due to the amount of money I have saved on ink!

  22. We bought Kyocera printers at work some years ago, they were marketing on themselves on the basis of cheap per page, and we have been really pleased with them. The printer was quite expensive at the time, but the lost cost of toner meant that within 2 years or so, the savings on the toner covered the cost of the printer, so, in effect, the printer did not cost us anything.

  23. Bought a HP Photosmart premium 310 3-in-one, because it seemed good value at £50, been regretting it ever since. Spent an absolute fortune on ink, have not used it for about 5 weeks and the new batch of ink that I put in, just prior, has gone, now showing low on all but one. Have tried using cheaper inks but got terrible results and the machine complained about it.
    Enough is enough, now searching the web for glowing reports on others printers.

  24. Thought about refilling the manufacturers cartridge. Many specialist cartridge shops will refill for about £5/cartridge and will re-set the chip. No compatibility problems, cheaper than generic replacements and more environmentally friendly.
    The ink quality can be a little less good than the manufacturers, but if there are any issues take it back to the shop and they will shove some nozzle rocket fuel through the cartridge, and maybe give you some to take back and clean the printer plate with.
    No brainer.

  25. I have a Kodak ESP C 110 I have purchased genuine replacement cartridges but after 2 prints everything comes out very dark with some colours missing I have used the maintenance on it and clean printer features on it but it still comes out the same any tips to resolve this problem please

  26. I need advice on my Kodak ESP C 110 only prints a couple of decent photos despite using genuine ink cartridges tried the maintenance and clean print head features but no improvement help

  27. I used Epson and HP Inkjets for about 5-6 months, eventually I had enough hassle over cartridges I bought from ebay and decided to dump them at cash generator for 0.50p for both, some dummy will buy from them!! I settled for HP and Brother lasers and no problems – they print at 0.03p per page which is not brilliant but is ok bearing in mind the quality is crisp, best laser I discovered later where quality reliability and cost are paramount considerations was the Samsung ML-2165w it’s compact fast and cheap, I love it – it reminds me of an Oki laser I used in 1994 that could print shed loads for next to nothing but today we live in a corporatocracy!!!

  28. Looking at cartridges on sale, I noticed HP46 boxes are HEAVY.
    Looking on the back, page yields are astronomical… normally around 480, these HP46 show 1500 pages. The weight is obviously a sign that there’s more than just a paper box and plastic cartridge, there is some ink inside…

    Only one printer though – it’s not WiFi enabled, it’s the HP 2520hc
    At this price I would prefer a disposable print head for (1500 mono/750 tricolour sheets) printing – the price being the same as HP standard cartridges.

  29. My Canon Pixma ip4600. It prints beautiful photos and is very reasonable to run as the ink tanks are not excessive. But these days I don’t do so much photo printing as I tend to share photos with family and friends on Facebook.

    My main annoyance is that because I use it infrequently (a couple of times a week), it is slow slow to start insisting on going through a monotonous takeoff procedure before it is ready to print. It’s excruciating.

    So I’m thinking of getting a cheap mono laser because they are faster at starting from cold and have very low operating costs.

    What’s annoying is that for some years Epson have made a really cheap to run, ultra fast (40+ ppm) mono inkjet printer but only sell it in third world countries. I’m sure that there would be a huge market for a fast mono inkjet in Europe.

    1. This would be worthy of investigation. Fair trading should demand more transparency in this respect.
      Obviously basic costs would vary with shipping costs and taxes, but identical models should be available globally.

      This is especially true of HP computers. I bought a Desktop in 2006 and quickly found out that the exact model number searched in Google ONLY comes up with Thai language results; a special model made with cheaper components for the Asian market maybe…

      It proved reliable – but I know there’s an issue with this coiuntry hiding hidden costs and taxes by accepting non-comparable models only.

      I’m curious to know if the INK ADVANTAGE 46 ink cartridges are priced the same as others across Europe (same price but with 5 times the ink of other INK ADVANTAGE cartridges).

    1. Agreed.
      I went to an ink stand and tapped all the boxes to find the heaviest before choosing my HP printer.

      INK ADVANTAGE
      46

      A very clear winner – extremely heavy compared to the other boxes (basically it’s all packaging and just a few drops of ink…)

      It seems to be an odd model offering enough ink for 1500 b/w pages at the same price as probably the same heads (different model number for different printer) to fit the ‘sexy’ models.

      Difference in ink content – 1500 against 320 for the same price. Only the one model does this, a bit naff – but prints beautifully and scans well enough.

      I miss the superb scan/copy of my MP140 binned last month – but the HP is cheaper on ink than paper, prints beautifully too, scans well enough.

  30. My family have bought 4 printers over the last 10 years, and I always check the price of compatible inks prior to purchasing a printer. I buy the cheapest Epsom available that meets my needs, and since there are less functions on the cheaper printers, there is less to go wrong. Each has been a workhorse, and they go in the bin when they malfunction. The total cost of each (inc complatibles) is very low indeed. The cheapest was £19 and the inks were about £9 a set. When a printer malfunctions, it’s no big deal at these prices. You don’t get fantastic printing, but I suppose it depends what you are doing. Text and a few pictures are fine, but I wouldn’t recommend my set up for perfect photo printing. So ‘cheap and cheerful’ is my answer to curtail hefty ink costs.

  31. I bought a Samsung CLX-3305W from PC World for a relative bargain, it was only when I needed to change the toner cartridges I realised it wasn’t the bargain I had thought. However, if you shop online there are bargains to be had, e.g. according to Google Shopping, I can currently get the black toner for £22 cheaper through clicktonerandink.co.uk than buying from the store.

    I agree with one comment above, in that ink/toner is stupidly overpriced for what it is – in some circumstances it is almost cheaper to buy a new printer (selling the old on eBay etc) than buying replacement ink or toner cartridges!

  32. I use a Canon Pixma MG5250 at home. I am incensed by printer companies which actively promote the wastage of ink. My printer continually informs me that an ink cartridge needs changing when the cartridge is nowhere near empty. The last time this happened the printer warned me that 4 out of the 5 cartridges were empty but I ignored the warning and the printer then completed 120 double sided pages of colour print before the inks finally ran out. If I changed the cartridges when the printer suggested I reckon I would throw away 10 – 20% of the ink. I am sure the printer manufacturers do this deliberately to make us spend more on ink.

    1. That’s a surprise . My ip4600 tanks are consistently empty when the notification pops up. Although there may still be a small quantity of ink still available in the head for another page or three, the tank is always empty.

    1. I disagree. There is a lot of non-quantative data here, including lots of complaints about the costs of OEM inks, with Epson seeming to be a contender for a Which? “Worst Buy” award.

      I have an oldish Canon MP750 (a former Which? best buy?) that I use occaisionally for printing holiday snaps and the odd piece of text. It does like to be unused for long periods of time, e.g. 1 year between holidays, but, so far, has always successfully completed its head cleaning routines and (eventually) returned to full print quality. It runs happily on cheap 3rd party ink cartiridges or on home refilled ones.

      Reading all the above it seems I should keep my Canon going for as long as possible.

  33. Epson printer is the most rubbish product I have ever come across. The cartridge problem same as many other people expressed their experience. I wonder how they cheat their customers
