The electronics titans square off in a tangled tale of mobile technology, centered on Apple's iPhone
Long on design and short on features, the Samsung SCX-4500 multifunction laser printer is best suited for light home or office use. Unless you're willing to pay for a showcase printer (two words we've never seen next to one another), your money will buy you more features and faster task speeds elsewhere.
The Samsung SL-M2020W is the best laser printer you can buy in the ultrabudget price range.
Although it's missing some fax features that many small offices and work groups find useful, the Lexmark X502n produces fast, high-quality prints. This is one laser multifunction that has a lot going for it.
This multifunction suffices for a low-volume small or home office, but look elsewhere for fax or heavy-duty copying features.
The reliable, easy-to-use Samsung SCX-4720F has great performance but a few glitches, notably limitations on its USB flash drive reader.
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.

Its features set is oddly unbalanced, and better all-in-one inkjet options cost just a bit more, but the HP Photosmart C5280 is a good bet for casual home users on a tight budget.
This honking-big, networkable color laser printer produces fantastic color output and speedy clear text.
The Dell B1160w's limited paper input capacity and lack of Ethernet networking constrain its use for small businesses with high-volume workloads, but its compact form makes it an affordable solution for personal use at home.
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.
