Whether you want a high-quality printer, an all-in-one workhorse, a compact photo printer, or a simp
CTIA shows off what's new in smartphones, accessories, and all things mobile.
The HP Photosmart C6180 all-in-one tries to be everything to everyone, and ultimately it fails to meet this lofty goal. It's a good printer at a decent price, however, for the home user who wants to consolidate all tasks into one machine.
The $399 HP LaserJet Pro 400 M401dw bundles all of HP's latest technologies into a tight package, but the 3.5-inch touch-screen display doesn't offer enough unique features to warrant the price jump to $400, especially compared with competing devices. Small businesses and home offices shopping for a reliable monochrome laser printer for quick prints should ignore the HP LaserJet M401dw's inflated price tag and look for a better deal.
Despite its remote-printing capabilities, the Kodak ESP 3.2's design blunders and inconsistent performance are unacceptable in the face of competing multifunctions in the sub-$100 category.
The Officejet Pro 8600 anchors HP's flagship printing line with capable performance, ample connectivity options, and enough cloud-printing tools to ensure its long-term usefulness.
The Hero 9.1 is a suitable choice for shoppers who need a capable multifunction imaging device with acceptable performance, apps that bring workflow into the cloud, and dual paper feed trays.
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 HP Photosmart 5510 all-in-one printer demonstrates reliable performance with excellent scores in both speed and quality tests, but falters in its feature offering. For people who need more than just speeds and feeds, I prefer the Epson Stylus NX430 instead.
As long as you don't mind not being able to print from a USB flash key, the Dell B1165nfw's healthy array of extra features and quick outbound print cycle make it worthwhile for small offices with wireless access.
The Officejet Pro X576dw delivers a generous serving of features exclusive to HP, including a new Pagewide printhead that grants it the speed benefits of a laser printer while maintaining the color print quality of an inkjet, making it worthwhile for offices shopping for a professional imaging solution.
The HP Officejet Mobile 150 is a useful travel companion for professionals, but you can spend half the cash on the touch-screen-free previous model that performs just as well.
