If you only have $100 to spend on a multifunction inkjet printer for the office, you'll have a hard time finding a faster performer with ink refills as cheap as the Brother MFC-J470DW.
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.
This no-nonsense color printer from Brother cuts extra features to keep the price down.
Pick up this basic monochrome laser printer when it's on sale and your printing frustrations will disappear.
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.
The HL-2360DW is a strong choice if you're shopping for a text-only printer that can print from the cloud and won't empty your wallet on toner refills.
While the Canon Pixma MG5620 is a capable machine with an easy set-up process and an attractive set of features, its high cost of consumables cuts into the overall value.
The Samsung ML-2525W monochrome laser printer doesn't pack in extra features, but delivers worthwhile improvements over previous generations in output speed and quality. We highly recommend this wireless workhorse if you refuse to sacrifice quality for affordability.
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.
The Epson Artisan 800 produces impressive color prints, photos, and text documents, and it outpaces the competition in almost all of our speed tests. We're impressed by its performance, but hesitate to recommend this printer based on the poor build quality and error-prone software.
Epson Stylus CX5400
The Brother MFC-5890CN all-in-one is hands down the worst printer to take up space in our lab. From the irritating initial set up to the horrendous output quality and slow print speed, this device is the easiest way to flush $200 down the drain.
The Epson WorkForce 310 is a cost-efficient all-in-one printer that gives you five separate ink cartridges with an automatic document feeder and a detailed control panel. Combine those features with its lightning-fast print speeds, and the WorkForce 310 is a worthwhile addition to your office arsenal.

The $399 HP LaserJet Pro 400 M401dw bundles all of HP's latest technologies into a tight package, but the 3.5-inch touch-screen display doesn't offer enough unique features to warrant the price jump to $400, especially compared with competing devices. Small businesses and home offices shopping for a reliable monochrome laser printer for quick prints should ignore the HP LaserJet M401dw's inflated price tag and look for a better deal.
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.
The LaserJet Pro 400 MFP M425dn is the first multifunction monochrome laser printer to get the ePrint and AirPrint networking treatment.
