What is the best kind of printer to buy for a home office?

I’m planning on doing some thorough research myself, but I’m looking for an all-in-one, including fax, printer. Wi-fi would be good as I’m mainly using a laptop, but it’s not required. I’m not a big fan of HP or Compaq, but if they have the best price I will bite. Not looking to spend an arm and a leg on ink, so one that is compatible with the ink being refilled, that’s even better. Thanks for your help.



H.P all in one.

Ive had an HP PSC 1410 for about 4 years, and I’ve only refilled the ink a couple times. Its an all in one that was about $100 when I purchased it. Well worth the investment.


Brother SeriesI have the Brother Laser Printer and it was only $45. It doesn’t print in color though but very useful and cheap.


I bought an all-in-one Epson Stylus – SX-600FW. It has Wi-Fi and card-reader. A bit noisy when printing but no problems to use and has nice LCD control panel. Easy to set-up, including Wi-Fi. I use it as my main printer now, as both laptop and desktop connect wirelessly via router.Ink is 4 cartridges I think, but haven’t had to change it yet. Photocopying is very good and simple (both b&w and colour).Mine cost about £80 from Amazon (UK obviously).

The cheapest all-in-one printer that is not from HP or Compaq is the Canon PIXMA MP490 Inkjet Photo All-In-One Printer, which costs $49.91 as of right now. This printer can print, copy, scan, and fax. The reviews also seem to be very positive, with an average of 4.5 out of 5 stars on Amazon.

The Canon PIXMA MP560 Wireless Inkjet All-In-One Photo Printer is your best wireless option, and costs $79.97. The reviews are slightly lower than those of the MP490 printer, but are still positive with an average of 4 out of 5 stars on Amazon. The 76 customer reviews are here:http://www.amazon.com/Canon-Wireless-Inkjet-Printer-3747B002/product-reviews/B002GP7Z6YAmazon offers free shipping to all orders over $25, so both printers would qualify.Good luck with your purchase!
