Monochrome Photo Quality
Same test as before, but with a black and white photo.
|Actual size original photo||Original photo enlarged 3X|
|Canon F20||Epson CX 3200|
|hp psc 1210||Lexmark X5150|
Only the HP all-in-one gave us a truly black and white photo. Canon's tend to be bit blue, Epson's a bit red and Lexmark's definitely green (even though digitization brings out the blue). However, with Canon and Epson, these dominants are really only visible when the prints are viewed side by side with HP ones.
With regard to detail, the advantage again goes to the Epson CX3200, which has much greater precision than the others. The rest of them come out equal.
Joint winners: Epson and HP, with an advantage to the former.
