The best printer for PC's are usually color inkjets because of their economical and generic printing features useful for moderate home use and office use, available from most of the brands.

For PC usage, laser printers are more expensive to buy than inkjet printers since they offer features like duplex printing to print on both the sides. Buying an inkjet makes you spend on consumables, i.e the ink but again, this costs lesser than the laser consumables.

Apart from printing documents and photos on your computer, the best printers for PC can also help you directly connect your digital cameras and print the photos.

  • The HP Color LaserJet Enterprise M553dn is fast, low-priced, and has output quality good enough to let you print your own marketing materials.


  • This is a big printer for companies with big ideas. It's fast, flexible and delivers stunning prints.


  • Once past its slow startup, the Color LaserJet Enterprise M553x offers top-tier print quality at particularly high speeds. Just don't place your desk in the immediate vicinity, as the fan is just as effective at making noise as it is at cooling the machine.


  • The Epson WorkForce ET-4550 EcoTank All-in-One Printer costs a lot for a personal multifunction printer (MFP), but it comes with all the ink most users will ever need.


  • Based on Epson's new EcoTank ink system, this otherwise low-volume inkjet delivers the lowest CPPs we've seen from any consumer-grade or small-business printer.


  • . To be honest, as these EcoTank printers go, I’m much more impressed with larger one, the WorkForce Pro model, even though I don’t print nearly enough to justify it. If you print 300 or 400 pages each month regularly, and you have the funds, this is a much cheaper way to go over cartridges. For a more detailed review of the ET-4550, click here.


  • A good fit as a personal multifunction printer or for light-duty, shared use in a small office, the HP Color LaserJet Pro MFP M277dw delivers high-quality text and graphics, fast speed, and mobile printing support.


  • If you're looking for a high-quality photo printer then inkjet printers still have the edge there. However, the M277dw provides excellent text quality and business graphics, and will make a good workhorse printer for smaller offices that need to produce high quality business documents.


  • This small and efficient laser all-in-one prints well and quickly, but the cost per page and limited paper handling render this an occasional-use model.


  • The Brother MFC-J5720DW inkjet multifunction printer delivers decent speed and output quality. More importantly, it offers a low running cost and has the ability to print at up to 11 by 17 inches.


  • The Brother MFC-J5270DW has very flexible paper handling facilities and both business and photo features making it a versatile device. We found some problems with the print quality in
    duplex copies and had some paper misfeeds. The default photo print mode is also surprisingly slow. These drop-offs can be worked around, though, and otherwise, this is a good business inkjet.


  • Let’s face it, there are a bunch of strong-performing business printers out there; choosing one isn’t easy. The good news is that as long as you keep your eye on the ink cost, most of them, including this MFC-J5720DW, should serve you well.


  • The HP Color LaserJet Pro M252dw color laser printer is a great fit for personal or light-duty shared use, with fast speed, high-quality output, network connectivity, and support for mobile printing.


  • There’s a lot to like about the HP Color LaserJet Pro M252dw, from its smart looks to its versatile wireless connection and duplex print. We’d like to see a higher capacity paper tray – or an option for a second tray – but other than that, it’s a very good choice for anybody who needs quality black and colour laser print, without a high purchase cost.
