The Samsung SL-M2020W is the best laser printer you can buy in the ultrabudget price range.
The HP Officejet 100 Mobile Printer is a useful accessory for working on the road. The convenience comes at a premium, but its quick prints, wireless access, and rechargeable battery make it worth the cost.
HP's basic Deskjet D2660 inkjet has a fold-up paper tray and a unique paper corral that make it easy to store away. We noticed several flaws in the output quality, but if you don't expect too much in terms of photo output, this $50 inkjet will make an excellent at-home printer for intermittent use.
With so many other inexpensive photo inkjets on the market today, we can't recommend the Lexmark z2420--it's prone to paper jams, prints at a snail's pace, and produces unacceptable quality prints.
HP markets the Officejet H470wbt to the mobile business professional, but it chose aesthetics over performance. The sleek design and cost-effective cartridges give its rating a slight boost, but the degradation of print quality from the previous model is definitely a deal breaker.
The Samsung ML-1630 can't claim to be the best value among $200 mono laser printers--the competition offers faster print speeds and more features--but the ML-1630's aesthetic appeal is undeniable.
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 HP Deskjet D4260 is a good choice for home users looking for a basic printer that's good enough for projects like school reports, but that won't break the bank.
The Dell 1320c is a decent choice for a small office or work group, but a little more cash will net you a faster printer with better print quality.
The HP LaserJet 1020 is a good deal for home users who have light print needs, but just a little bit more money can get you more features and better print quality.
The Lexmark Z1300 isn't for everyone, but, for users who want to spend the bare minimum for occasional prints, it's quite a bargain.
The tiny Samsung CLP-300 color laser printer is a good bargain for those with very basic print needs. If you need more from your printer, you'll have to spend a little more money.
An average budget inkjet printer, the Epson Stylus C88 won't thrill you, but it probably won't disappoint either.
The Samsung ML-2010 markedly improves on its predecessor but remains a personal laser rather than a serious business printer.
This is a decent first laser printer for a student or a writer, and it would make a good companion to a photo inkjet or an all-in-one.
This HP is affordable if you want a simple color laser printer with wired networking, but it's sluggish.
Need a reliable, bare-bones laser printer with a sense of style? The HP LaserJet 1022 deserves a look.
A moderate price and run-of-the-mill performance make the Deskjet 9800d a utilitarian workhorse.
