Here we give you an insight in to the top selling printers and multifunctions of the prevous month, we will also give you some pointers to what might be the best sellers this month.
July was a very busy month in terms of printer sales and these were the best sellers for the month:
Mono Laser Printers
A constant best seller for us, the HL-5240L is a great desktop printer for somebody looking for a good workhorse machine. It features USB & parallel interfaces, a 250 sheet paper tray, a resolution of 1200x1200dpi and a print speed of up to 24ppm. It also takes the same supplies as the Brother HL-52xx series, making it a good buy for people with existing Brother printers in that range.
Another reason for its popularity is that it is compatible with DOS printing.
A close 2nd to the Brother is the OKI B410d which is probably down to the half price offer we currently have on it, was £121.00 now only £60.50 but only whilst stocks last.
Which is a great price for an A4 mono laser with automatic duplex printing, the rest of the specs are similar to the Brother but with a slightly faster print speed of 28ppm.
We don’t expect much to change this month and would imagine the best sellers in August will be the above two printers.
Colour Laser Printers
Xerox Phaser 6110n
A very compact entry level A4 colour laser printer at an incredible price, the Phaser 6110n features USB & network interfaces and has a print speed of 4ppm in colour and 12ppm in mono.
Xerox Phaser 6125
The next model up from the Phaser 6110, giving you faster print speed, lower running costs and excellent quality output. In fact the quality of the output from the Phaser 6125 actually put some of the higher priced colour lasers to shame.
However, in August we don’t expect the above two printers to feature at the top because there has been a price increase on the Phaser 6110 adding over £40 to the price and the Phaser 6125 had a special offer running on it with a free set of CMY toners which has now ended.
This month look out for the Xerox Phaser 6130 which is a very similar spec to the Phaser 6125 but has an offer of FREE CMY toners worth over £150 and also the Brother HL-4040CN which if you call us we will knock £100 off the web price whilst stocks last.
The run away best seller has been the Samsung SCX-4828FN A4 mono laser printer, again probably mostly due to its half price offer making it only £149.99ex VAT whilst stocks last.
Which is a fantastic price as it Prints, Scans, Copies and Faxes, 1200x1200dpi, USB & network interfaces, it will scan to PC, network, email or USB and it also boasts duplex printing and duplex scanning/copying.
Strangely the 2nd best selling mono MFP was the SCX-4824FN which is spec wise the model below the SCX-4828FN, very similar spec but it is slightly slower, doesn’t have the scan to to USB capability or duplex printing, scanning or copying.
The best seller by a long way, the Brother MFC-6490CW is a wireless A3 inkjet multifunction which prints, scans and faxes. Its popularity is probably down to its low price, the fact it can scan and copy up to A3 size and the FREE 3 year warranty you can claim from Brother on it.
The 2nd best seller is another Brother A3 inkjet very similar to the MFC-6490CW but the main difference being no Fax function but it still has the FREE 3 year warranty that can be claimed from Brother.
In terms of best sellers the top 2 colour laser MFP’s were again two Brother machines:
The top of the range Brother colour laser multifunction printer, features include Print, Scan, Copy & Fax, it has wireless, wired and USB interfaces, print speed is 20ppm in colour or mono and also has the capability to duplex print, scan and copy.
Both the Brother colour laser MFP’s are part of our get £100 off the web price by calling us to buy offer but only whilst stocks last.
This month in terms of the multifunctions we might see a challenge coming from the Lexmark X342n A4 mono laser, which we are expecting to get in at a very good price. However, we expect that Brother will continue to dominate colour multifunction sales for both laser and inkjet.
