You are asking for qualities that are diametrically opposed to each other in terms of photo printing.


If you get fast you will not get detailed, if you want maximally detailed you will not get fast.


Only you can determine where the crossover point lies for yourself.


As far as photo print quality, and speed for photos as well as documents, take a look at the spec sheet.  It will tell you a lot.  Then go to a place like Best Buy, Staples, or Costco where the specific store allows you to test scan and print from the devices on display.  That way you can see for yourself how the specs translate in real life to printing on plain paper.

you have stores that let you do test scans and prints ???

that's pretty neat.


no such thing here.

Instead of reading this, why not do a backup of your PC.

You won't regret it.

Yes it's a compromise. If you want the best photo printing possible, that would be through a dedicated photo printer, which often have more colours than the basic 4 colour printers.  You can get lab like quality with the best ones, but the high end ones are expensive.  If you want fast printing and scanning, low PPM costs, large paper capacities and so on, that would be with one of the office orientated MFP's. Although most of them can print photo's on photo paper as well, it's not their strength.


A few I like the look of:


Epson Expression XP-760 - quite highly rated as a photo printer. It's affordable and has a manual feed scanner. However it's mediocre on printing documents, and not cheap on ink. Review - http://www.expertreviews.co.uk/printers/all-in-one-printers/1402604/epson-expression-photo-xp-760-review


Canon Pixma MG 5750 - looks like a good budget all in one. It's not marketed as a photo printer, but it should do a reasonable job of printing photo's. Review - http://www.expertreviews.co.uk/printers/all-in-one-printers/1404314/canon-pixma-mg5750-review-our-new-best-buy


Canon Pixma TS 8050 - Bit more expensive but said to have excellent photo print quality, overall it looks like it has similar features to the XP-760, but lower ink costs. Review - http://www.techadvisor.co.uk/review/printer-scanner-copiers/canon-pixma-ts8050-review-3653732/


There are others if speed (scanning and printing) is the more important factor than photo printing. If that is what you're after then things like the Epson Workforce Pro WF-5620DWF or Canon Maxify MB2720 might be worth a look, which are more like office printers, and also have auto document feeders. They can't do borderless photo printing however.
