Comparative Test: 9 ink All-in-Ones up to 200 Euros: Sound test: Sound test
To give you an impression what the AIOs in this test sound like, listen to our videos while they print a single page of text.
Both Brother-AIOs work really quiet - but slow as well. Our videos show how the Canons open their paper tray automatically. They work pretty quiet as well. The Epson-AIOs work with terrific speed - and loud. HP-AIOs develop a reasonable noise level and confirm every job done with a melody. Every keystroke with a Lexmark is a sound event - too much noise. The paperfeed is noisy, too. But when printing the get sound is unobtrusive.
