The HP LaserJet Pro M1212nf is the company's cheapest monochrome multifunction laser printer. For the money, it earns our recommendation for its Smart Install feature and excellent value.

The Canon Pixma MX372 is a sensible printing solution for personal use, but photographers and offices looking for a network-ready printer could spend a little more up front for better output quality.

The Brother MFC-490CW is an improvement over the more expensive MFC-5890CN, but that still doesn't excuse its drudging print speeds and mechanical issues under the hood. Instead of dealing with these headaches, we recommend you look toward the Canon Pixma MX330, which will give you consistent performance and a variety of extra features for the same price.
This color multifunction is ultraspeedy for a workgroup, but its bulk and its color-printing problems make it less than ideal for a small office.
This truly business-friendly color laser multifunction can seamlessly replace the army of devices in your office.

The fax, copy, print, and scanning features boast helpful extras like double-sided printing, wireless connectivity, separate photo trays, and quick-access control panel buttons, all while maintaining lab-quality photos and a low cost to print. We highly recommend this printer to anyone who can benefit from its multifunctionality.

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.
