Top 10 Color Laser Printers
by Melissa Riofrio
Our AssessmentMelissa Riofrio ranks 10 color laser printers in this chart, with summaries of each review and links to the full reviews and test reports. Individual reviews are not comparative and are largely descriptive. Text and image quality are described but not shown. However, testing is very good, and the test reports provide a basis for comparison. Reliability information is also charted, but it applies to brands, not models, and some of the information is dated.
Colour Laser Printer Reviews
by Editors of PC Advisor
Our AssessmentU.K. website PC Advisor borrows some content from sister publication PC World, but also produces a number of color laser printer reviews of its own. The write-ups are short and offer little direct comparison, but each color laser printer is assigned an overall rating and subcategory ratings. Build quality is a subcategory -- an important buying consideration that's rarely addressed in reviews from other sources. Not all reviewed color laser printers are available in the U.S.
by Editors of PC Pro
Our AssessmentBritish magazine PC Pro reviews color laser printers with about the same frequency as other computer magazines. The reviews are comparative, but are not comprehensive and are minimally documented. Not all models are available in the U.S.
by Editors of TrustedReviews.com
Our AssessmentU.K. website TrustedReviews.com is another prolific reviewer of printers, though not all of the color laser printers covered here are available in the U.S. Printers are reviewed individually and rated on a 10-point scale. Testing is limited, however, and no proof of text or graphics quality is provided. Metrics like speed and cost of use are reported, but it's uncertain if reviewers calculate the figures themselves or use the manufacturers' claims.

by Editors of ConsumerReports.org

Color Laser Printer Reviews
by Editors of PrinterShowcase.com
Our AssessmentAn online retailer, PrinterShowcase.com reviews printers it sells. Consumers should keep that in mind when considering the site's recommendations. Still, the editors seem to make an effort to be objective, rating the printers on setup, print quality, speed, paper handling, supplies and service/reliability. Some reviews are more complete than others.

Our AssessmentComputerShopper.com hasn't reviewed a single-function color laser printer in quite some time.

Top-Rated Color Laser Printers
by Jackie Dove
Our AssessmentThis review lists Macworld's choice for the top nine color laser printers. All are rated highly and, except for occasional speed comparisons, reviewers provide no distinctions for readers. The reviews are not Mac-centric and are of equal use to anyone shopping for a color laser printer, as testing is done with an Intel-based Macintosh. The roundup and most of the reviews are a couple years old, though several of the printers covered remain available.
