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.
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.
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 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.
HP's A3 printer is best suited to those who need to print big official documents rather than big photos.
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.
We really like the office-oriented Xerox 6180/N for its quick, high-quality prints, but the Lexmark C530dn provides more bang for your buck and slightly better quality.
The HP Deskjet 460c printer is a boon if you're constantly on the go and absolutely need to be able to print from wherever you are. The option of Wi-Fi printing gives it a slight edge over the competition.
The Lexmark P350 snapshot photo printer is less expensive than the competition, but its slower print speeds and somewhat half-baked features make it less attractive.

The Brother MFC-J825DW packs in plenty of features and produces printed documents speedily, but it's marred by below-par print quality across text, graphics and photos.
Like Canon's other printers in its Pixma MX-series, the stylish MX870 has versatile features, including a handy scroll wheel and an ample 2.5-inch LCD, to help you get the job done. We recommend the Canon Pixma MX870 as a do-it-all device with an affordable price tag; just be ready to stomach its intermittent print lag.
With a bargain-basement price, the HP OfficeJet 4215 is a multitalented, multifunction printer for the home or the office.
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.
The HP Photosmart 5510 all-in-one printer demonstrates reliable performance with excellent scores in both speed and quality tests, but falters in its feature offering. For people who need more than just speeds and feeds, I prefer the Epson Stylus NX430 instead.
