Canon ImageClass MF3010
Though it's lacking Wi-Fi and an autodocument feeder, the Canon ImageClass MF3010 laser printer's strong performance and versatile features have appeal for students and home offices on a budget.
Although it performed adequately in our print speed tests, this basic monochrome laser printer is outgunned by competitive devices with wireless networking for the same price.
HP LaserJet Pro P1606dn ( Refurbished)
Fast, cheap, and compact, the HP LaserJet Pro P1606dn offers a winning combination of value and performance for home offices or small businesses in need of a monochrome laser printer.
Dell 1350cnw Color Laser Printer
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.
HP Color LaserJet CP2025dn ( Refurbished)
Although the HP CP2025n is rather slow to print black documents and is missing supplementary features such as USB-direct printing and wireless, the color laser shines in output quality, and the software holds your hand through a somewhat daunting learning curve. The CP2025n also has a high monthly duty-cycle, so we recommend it to anyone hunting for a workhorse printer to complement an equally diligent work environment.
Brother MFC 7440N
The Brother MFC-7440N prints quickly and is fairly inexpensive to sustain, but we simply can't get behind a printer with poor quality graphics, significant hardware defects, and a boring design.
HP LaserJet M2727nfs
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 Oki B2520 MFP is a low-cost multifunction that ultimately fails for a variety of reasons, from its poorly implemented control panel to slow, low-quality output. There are better laser multifunctions that won't leave you scratching your head in confusion and frustration.
Lexmark X502n color laser multifunction
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.
Dell 1720dn mono laser printer
The Dell 1720dn offers fast prints and good print quality, making it an excellent mono laser printer for small offices or work groups.
