  • Designed as an inkjet multifunction printer primarily for home use, the HP Envy 5540 All-in-One Printer can print, scan, copy, print through the cloud, and print directly from mobile devices.


  • The Envy 5540 is good value for people who need to produce a lot of colour documents or photo prints, and provides good quality for such a low-cost printer. However, simple mono text documents remain relatively expensive and there are cheaper options available if you need to print a lot of mono documents on a regular basis.


  • This inexpensive, light-duty color inkjet churns out excellent-looking prints, scans, and copies—and, if you commit to Instant Ink, does so at a reasonable cost per page.


  • The HP OfficeJet 4650 All-in-One Printer offers office-centric features, including faxing and an automatic document feeder, in an inkjet multifunction printer suitable for a home office.


  • This entry-level Officejet prints, scans, and copies well, and with Instant Ink, inexpensively. It’s a good value if you can tolerate its exceptionally slow print speeds.


  • I didn’t care much for these little printers because they cost too much use, but HP’s Instant Ink addresses that one huge shortcoming, well.


  • The Brother HL-L2300D's small size and excellent paper handling—with a 250-sheet tray, manual feed, and duplexer—should be at the top of your list for a personal monochrome laser printer.


  • The HL-2300D is a fast and affordable entry-level laser with low running costs.


  • The Canon Pixma MG5720 Wireless Inkjet All-in-One delivers better output quality than most inkjet multifunction printers, making it ideal for home use or as a light-duty personal printer.


  • This is a tough one. Canon’s three new photo printers provide additional productivity and convenience features with each product step up, but if all you want is basic photo printing, the MG5720 is a good place to start.


  • The Canon Pixma MG6820 Wireless Inkjet All-in-One offers above-par photo quality and speedy photo-printing, making it a good fit for home use.


  • The mobile connectivity is good, but this inkjet AIO's ho-hum print speeds and high cost per page relegate it to light duty for casual home use. (Look for it as a dark-horse bargain on sale, though.)


  • Do you need a good photo printer? This is a good one, but Canon’s 6-ink photo printers produce better-looking photos, but not by so much that everybody would notice.
