HP LaserJet Pro 400 M401dn ( Government)
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.
HP Officejet 150 Mobile All-in-One
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.
Epson WorkForce 645
Although the Epson WorkForce takes its time printing snapshot photos and graphics-heavy documents, this office-capable device earns my approval with affordable inks and cloud-printing features.
HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus e-All-in-One
If you can find a desk to accommodate its large size, the HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus all-in-one printer serves up top-shelf output quality at rapid print speeds, suitable for offices, home users, and photo enthusiasts hunting for an upgrade.
Canon Pixma MG6220
Unique features like HD Movie Print, CD/DVD printing, and Apple AirPrint compatibility make the Canon Pixma MG6220 a no-brainer for amateur photographers, families, and home offices.
Epson Stylus NX430 Small-in-One All-in-One Printer
The Epson NX430 "Small-in-One" printer is a solid investment for students and office jockeys who print high-quality photos and documents but don't have the space for a large format device.
Epson WorkForce 845 All-in-One Printer
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.
Dell 1250c Color LED Laser-Class Printer
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.
HP LaserJet Pro M1217nfw MFP
The LaserJet Pro M1217nfw is HP's workhorse printer designed for small businesses that output a high volume of monochrome prints. It's not the most environmentally friendly machine, but its Smart Install feature and excellent performance earn our recommendation.
HP Photosmart e-All-in-One ( D110a)
We wouldn't recommend it for high-output households or large offices, but the HP Photosmart D110a provides inexpensive access to HP's clever new ePrint and Web-connected apps.
