The Epson Expression Home XP-430 combines reliable do-it-all multifunction printing and a space-saving design at an ultra-affordable price.
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.
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.
Samsung's first digital photo printer is a sight to see as it runs the paper in and out of its innards. The spectacle is matched by the product, as the finished pictures look amazing. This is a printer that can be operated by anyone, and as long as you're not printing out masses of photos, it's an economical way to keep updating that photo album
If you can afford its initial and ongoing costs and aren't looking to hang your work in a museum, the HP Sprocket Photo Printer is a simple and enjoyable way to get photos off your phone.
It's not the easiest model to use, nor does it have the fastest print speed, but its high-quality output and range of features for the price make the Canon MG3150 a good budget buy.
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.
The Canon Pixma MG5350 delivers excellent quality prints at a really rapid pace. It's not the cheapest model to run and it lacks a touchscreen, but we think its impressive performance helps to make up for these two slight failings.
HP's Officejet 6500A Plus is easy to recommend. Despite its low price tag, it offers loads of great features, delivers excellent printed results and is cheap to run. The only minor downside is that duplex printing is a little sluggish.
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 Brother DCP-7055 multi-function, monochrome laser printer is inexpensive, easy to use and produces good-quality text output. But its relatively high running costs and less-than-impressive graphics results are disappointing.
The Canon Pixma MG4150 looks good, produces impressive results with text and is economical to run, but its slow print speeds and so-so performance with graphics blot its copy book.
The Canon MG6250 is a great option for people who are big into photography. It has an excellent scanner and produces very high quality photo prints. There's plenty more on offer, including Wi-Fi and Ethernet support, direct CD/DVD printing and dual paper trays.
If you want to be able to produce high-impact A3 posters, we think you'll find the highly affordable HP Officejet 7500A inkjet printer hard to beat. It can scan, copy and fax too.
It's fairly expensive to buy and its running costs aren’t cheap, but the Canon MG8250 prints superb quality text, graphics and photos at a rapid pace.
The Samsung ML-3310ND mono laser printer is a speedy performer, producing good prints at a low cost. The control panel is fiddly, though, and network configuration may bamboozle those of a less technical bent.
The Brother MFC-J430W delivers printed pages at a speedy pace and is easy to set up and use. However, its print quality just isn't as good as what you'll get from rival models at a similar price.
