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 Samsung SL-M2020W is the best laser printer you can buy in the ultrabudget price range.
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-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.
Canon's entry-level Pixma iP2702 is as no-frills as inkjet printers come. It's no speed demon, but it's capable of producing some decent results. While it's not very expensive, however, the cost of replacing the cartridges could soon mount up
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 HP Photosmart Premium Fax All-in-One printer makes it easy to increase productivity thanks to its streamlined user interface. 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.
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.
The Samsung ML-2955DW is small, easy to use and produces good quality output. However, its running costs are quite high, so if you make heavy use of your printer you'd be better off stepping up to Samsung's ML-3710ND, which is slightly more expensive to buy but cheaper to run.
