  • 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 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 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.


  • The Dell Printer - E310dw combines small size, fast speed, and both Ethernet and Wi-Fi connectivity, making it a good fit as either a personal monochrome laser printer or a shared printer in a micro office.


  • This budget mono laser packs some unexpected features, including double-sided printing, Wi-Fi, and a manual feed slot. However, its toner costs are high, and the print quality for graphics and photos is subpar.


  • The Dell E310dw makes a decent personal printer, as long as you don’t print too much. If your application calls for laser-class output on a moderate scale, this little Dell can do that.


  • The Epson Expression Premium XP-830 Small-in-One's abundance of features and versatility make this inkjet MFP a top choice for home or home office use.


  • There’s always been a tradeoff with photo printers—impeccable photos for high per-page cost—and that doesn’t seem ready to change any time soon. As midrange photo printers go, this is a good one. And did I mention that it prints on pre-labeled CD, DVD, and Blu-ray discs?.
