If you're shopping for a sub-$100 multifunction printer for intermittent use in your home, the Canon Pixma MP495 will meet your needs. It prints, scans, and copies documents, and the integrated wireless print server means you won't have a bundle of cables tangling up the office. We have a few flaws to nitpick, but otherwise Canon scores with the Pixma MP495.
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.
The Brother MFC-440CN is a very flexible multifunction printer well suited to light use in a home office.
The Hero 9.1 is a suitable choice for shoppers who need a capable multifunction imaging device with acceptable performance, apps that bring workflow into the cloud, and dual paper feed trays.
The Canon i950 is a sure winner for amateur digital photographers on a budget.
Beyond its wow factor, the wallet-size Brother MW-140BT is a perfect fit for anyone needing minute prints from a PDA.
The Dell 1355cnw's wireless connectivity and simple controls lend themselves well to a busy micro-office environment, as long as you don't mind waiting a bit for multipage documents.
Our quibbles with the Brother MFC-9440CN pale in comparison to the many things we like about it, chiefly its sublime combination of fast speeds with high-quality output. It's currently our favorite recommendation for a small office environment.
The Dell V305w is cosmetically appealing and inexpensive, but the output quality needs significant improvement, and the cost to maintain the printer is much higher than the industry standard. We recommend checking out the competition for a printer that will give you longer-lasting inks, cheaper replacement cartridges, and more acceptable photo-quality prints.
No 3D printer is perfect yet, but the Afinia H-Series H479 3D printer is the most approachable model we've reviewed, and we'd recommend it to anyone serious about getting started with 3D printing.
Mattel's collaboration with Autodesk means a 3D printer for toys is on its way later this year...and it could make the whole process seem a lot more family-friendly.
The Canon Pixma MP510 is a middle-of-the-road photo all-in-one, but we like what you get for the price.
With its wealth of office-oriented features, fast prints, and great print quality, the HP Officejet Pro L7680 is a very compelling all-in-one for small businesses or work groups. We wholeheartedly recommend it.
The HP Officejet J6480 has a lot of built-in features that are rarely found included in a $200 printer. Shoppers looking for an all-inclusive multifunctional unit will be impressed with the robust hardware and rich print quality.
The Samsung ML-2571N mono laser printer has the right combination of price and features for a home office user with basic printing needs.
The Samsung ML-1630 is very average by printer standards. It's not particularly quick, it's not wireless and it doesn't hold much paper. But forget all that. Its print quality is fine for most users, it's quiet and most importantly -- it's absolutely gorgeous
The Canon Pixma MX330 doesn't produce the best quality prints, but you won't find a more versatile printer in the sub-$150 category. An auto-document feeder, 1.8-inch LCD screen, and easy-to-use features make it an excellent choice for creative homes on a budget.
Fast print speeds and decent output make this inexpensive printer a great option for multitasking families.
