Pick up this basic monochrome laser printer when it's on sale and your printing frustrations will disappear.
The HP Envy 4520 is a capable all-in-one that combines a printer, copier and scanner with two ink delivery choices designed to ease back on expensive ink refills.
With its ultra-low-cost refillable ink bottles, this clever little Epson EcoTank printer does away with pricey ink cartridges once and for all -- but it will cost you a lot more up front.
This no-nonsense color printer from Brother cuts extra features to keep the price down.
The HP Officejet 4630 isn't the fastest printer on the market, but it delivers professional-quality prints and future-proof features like cloud connectivity and HP Instant Ink that can potentially save shoppers a lot of money on refill cartridges.
The Officejet Pro 8600 anchors HP's flagship printing line with capable performance, ample connectivity options, and enough cloud-printing tools to ensure its long-term usefulness.
Simple and fun to use, the Polaroid Zip is a great little accessory for freeing your photos from your smartphone.
HP's Officejet 6500A Plus is easy to recommend. Despite its low price tag, it offers loads of great features, delivers excellent printed results and is cheap to run. The only minor downside is that duplex printing is a little sluggish.
Don't be fooled by its small stature: the Epson Expression Home XP-420 all-in-one inkjet printer forges ahead of the competition with its compact footprint, cloud connectivity options and its ability to print high-quality snapshots directly from an Android phone or iPhone.
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.
The Oki C3400n laser printer is networkable and fast with color prints, but its paper-handling options are limited, and like all lasers, its color prints are pricey and prone to errors.
The Oki C5200n joins the ranks of low-cost, network-enabled business color printers.
Fast print speeds, low running costs and excellent print quality make this a great alternative to a colour laser printer for those who need to print lots of colour documents.
The Xerox ColourQube 8570 can produce great-looking documents at a rapid pace and is fairly cheap to run. However, this bulky model is rather noisy and the long warm-up time will annoy some people. As a result, it's difficult to see the benefits of solid ink technology over laser printing for most home office users.
It's fairly expensive to buy and its running costs aren’t cheap, but the Canon MG8250 prints superb quality text, graphics and photos at a rapid pace.
The Canon MG6250 is a great option for people who are big into photography. It has an excellent scanner and produces very high quality photo prints. There's plenty more on offer, including Wi-Fi and Ethernet support, direct CD/DVD printing and dual paper trays.
The Canon Pixma MG5350 delivers excellent quality prints at a really rapid pace. It's not the cheapest model to run and it lacks a touchscreen, but we think its impressive performance helps to make up for these two slight failings.
The Lexmark Pro 715 is not a bad multi-function inkjet, but the problem is that it's outclassed by Epson's WP-4535DWF, which has a similar asking price, yet is much faster and a good deal cheaper to run.
