    Price: $248 (Save $51)

    Apart from some criticisms about connectivity, we like Canon's PIXMA MP640; it's versatile, easy to use and produces great photos. The ability to print from USB flash drives and integrated Wi-Fi make the printer that much more appealing than its predecessors, so it's hard to ignore [[xref:http://www.dse.com.au/cgi-bin/dse.storefront/4aea6448000c1132273fc0a87e010638/Product/View/XP3640|Dicksmith Electronic's offer]] of $248 for the printer; $51 off the RRP.

    Price: $694 (Save $184.90)

    There aren't many colour laser printers under the $1000 mark, so that makes the DocuPrint C2120 a rare beauty. If colour printing is all you're after, then this is an inexpensive choice that will produce good quality documents; just don't expect to get automatic duplexing or an internal hard drive without spending a bit extra. Thankfully, the cost has come down significantly since we reviewed the printer, so you can grab it [[xref:http://www.officeworks.com.au/retail/products/Technology/Printers-Faxes-and-Multifunctions/Laser-Printers/Colour-Laser-Printers/INFXC2120|from Officeworks]] for a reasonable $694.

    As a basic multifunction for text and the occasional colour document, Epson's Stylus Office TX510FN is a great value choice.
