In a vacuum, the HP LaserJet 2727nf is a fine mono laser multifunction for small offices. But its price and feature set are out of whack with the competition: you can get more for the same money, or you can pay less for the same features.
The Dell 1720dn offers fast prints and good print quality, making it an excellent mono laser printer for small offices or work groups.
Fine-but-slow text and fast-but-crummy color make the LaserJet 3550 hard to recommend.

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.
A great little monochrome laser printer, it offers fine output, duplexing, and a tight footprint that lets it fit right into any business, school, or home office.

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.
