HP LaserJet Pro 400 M401dw
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 LaserJet Pro 100 Color MFP
The HP LaserJet Pro 100 is a solid color laser printer for personal use, but the high cost of consumables, slow print speeds, and missing features limit its productivity for 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.
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.
Lexmark Prevail Pro 705
The Prevail Pro705 is Lexmark's all-purpose office machine and we recommend it for home offices or small workgroups; just don't expect it to print out high-quality graphics or high-resolution photos.
Dell V515w All-in-One Wireless Printer
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.
HP Photosmart eStation C510
For all the cool points the HP Photosmart eStation C510 earns for Web-connectivity features like ePrint and the detachable Android-powered Zeen, we're holding off on our recommendation until HP drops the price and fixes the user interface bugs and network errors that marred our testing.
HP Envy 100 e-All-in-One
Boasting a touch-screen display, an app store, and ePrint (a remote printing service), the HP Envy 100 features loads of innovation in a slickly designed chassis. We wouldn't buy this printer for its image quality, but the convenience of ePrint and the potential of the ePrintCenter app store earn the HP Envy 100 our recommendation.
Oki B431DN ( print server)
The Oki B431DN is truly a workhorse black-and-white laser printer, with rapid output speed and high print quality. Combined with extra features like an autoduplexer and a large paper input capacity, the Oki B431DN is worth your dollar.
