Compact with a high dpi resolution of more than 600 dpi to enable high quality output, the best monochrome printers offer wireless as an additional option. Connecting to either the home office or small business network, you are able to print large volume of documents quickly.

  • Aimed at personal use or shared use in a micro office, the Samsung Multifunction Xpress M2885FW delivers better overall output quality than most monochrome laser multifunction printers.


  • This inexpensive mono-laser all-in-one has unusually fast print speeds, plus a host of convenience features. Our only quibble is with the toner cost.


  • The Samsung Xpress M2885FW is a good printer that's fast, compact and low in toner cost, plus, it uses NFC to print documents wirelessly from smartphones and tablets. That said, we would have preferred a larger display to make the numerous functions easier to navigate through.


  • 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 Dell Multifunction Printer - E515dw's text quality is slightly below par, but good enough for most business use, and the printer delivers most of the multifunction printer features you probably need.


  • This under-$200 monochrome LED MFP model prints well enough (and fast enough)—just recognize that its cost per page is a bit too high for more than light duty.


  • Overall, this isn’t a bad printer. It’s great for printing receipts, quotes, you name it—as long as your print load isn’t too heavy. If so, Dell makes high-volume printers with low CPPs, as do other printer makers.


  • The Brother MFC-L2740DW monochrome laser multifunction printer (MFP) is packed with advanced features and is suitable for use as a shared printer or for heavy-duty personal use.


  • The biggest strength of this inexpensive mono laser all-in-one is its handling of double-sided documents. (Its print costs are high, and the graphics printing isn’t up to snuff.)


  • The MFC-L2740DW is a good all-rounder, sensibly priced and not too expensive to run.


  • The Canon imageClass MF229dw is a strong candidate for micro offices that need a monochrome laser multifunction printer that can scan two-sided documents, as well as print them.


  • The Canon iSENSYS MF229dw is a well-designed, fast, capable all-in-one. Its duplex print, scan and copy sets it above most of the budget all-in-ones, but then it carries a higher price tag, so you have to need this function to make the overall offering completely attractive.
