Though it's slightly more expensive than competing inkjet workhorses, we recommend the Epson WorkForce 845 for its refined design and Epson's Connect cloud-printing portfolio.
If you're not in a rush to receive your prints, the Office Pro 6.1 makes a worthwhile sidekick with several cloud printing options, a generous 200-sheet paper input capacity, and a 35-sheet autodocument feeder for hands-free scans on the upgraded 2,400dpi scanner.
The Dell 1355cnw's wireless connectivity and simple controls lend themselves well to a busy micro-office environment, as long as you don't mind waiting a bit for multipage documents.

The Epson WorkForce 840 costs a bit more than the average all-in-one inkjet, but its strong performance and long list of features more than justify its price and CNET's Editors' Choice Award.
Despite taking its time to print snapshot photos and graphics-heavy documents, the Epson WorkForce 635's affordable inks and double-sided printing confirm its office suitability and earn our approval.
The Dell 1250c color laser printer's compact frame makes sense for users in a confined space, but its lack of Ethernet and wireless connectivity limits its appeal for networked offices.
Stay away from the Kodak ESP C310 if you're shopping for a new all-in-one printer. Competing $100 models like the Canon MX410 or the Lexmark Impact S305 offer similar features in a tighter package.
The Dell V515w is a capable printer with all-in-one print, fax, scan, and copy functionality, but the cheap build, quick-depleting cartridges, and spotty wireless service aren't worth the hassle. We recommend skipping over this ink guzzler and picking up a more reputable multifunction inkjet.
If you print a high volume of monochrome and color documents, the Dell 1350cnw color laser printer delivers strong results with a variety of wired and wireless networking options. As long as you're patient with its sluggish output speed and small LED screen, we recommend the Dell 1350cnw for use in a small business or home office.
