For a long time A3 printers were not something the average consumer could afford to buy, much less an A3 all-in-one. By now there are four different manufacturers that have affordable A3 printers, so it's about time Hardware.Info found out which one is best.
Printing in A3 size is not something every needs or wants. Still, it can be handy to be able to create your own prints of a flyer for example. A4 is too small to get much attention, but A3 usually draws the eyes. During a Brother event earlier this year the company even claimed to examined this together with a professor in psychology. At the end of last year Epson became the fourth player in the A3 consumer market, so we're now looking at a new niche: the consumer A3 all-in-one.
The A3 printers in this round-up are from Brother, Canon, Epson and HP, with respectively the J6510DW (£221), the iX6550 (£158), the WorkForce WF-7515 (£174) and the HP Officejet 7500A (£138). We submitted each printer to our normal testing process, and will review them in alphabetical order.
