BUYER'S GUIDE / The Best Inkjet Printers
From basic print solutions to multifunction models
The 7 best printers of the moment: the best all-rounder, the best-value printer, the best budget option, the best choice if money is no object.
The Envy 5640 is a great all-rounder of a multifunction inkjet that's replete with wireless capability, an SD memory card reader, a touchscreen and plenty of handy apps, all in a stylish design. It produces quality text and photo prints and has everything our previous Editor's Choice, the Photosmart 6520, didn't have.
The Canon Pixma MG7150 hasn't changed that much since the MG6350: same print quality, speed, design... But it has added features for remote printing, cloud printing, social networks, etc. (options HP's Photosmart range has offered for years now). But, as always, Canon delivers when it comes to print quality and versatility.
The Pixma MG5650 is versatile and offers good photo and text print quality. Canon is making efforts to bring more connectivity to its printers with the Pixma Printing Solutions app that lets you print and scan from the comfort of your smartphone. The MG5650 could use more hints of modernity as well, such as a touchscreen.
The HP Envy 120 is by far the most stylish printer currently on the market. We like the look, the remote printing functions and the connected services. However, in terms of performance, it's on par with all sorts of far less expensive entry-level products that also have remote functions and connected apps.
The Epson WorkForce WF-7620DTWF delivers on its word of versatility, print quality and low cost. Print quality has made strides since previous WorkForces, and print speeds haven't dropped. This printer is user-friendly and chock-full of features.
The Epson Expression Photo XP-950 combines high-quality photo printing, fast speeds, wireless connectivity and A4/A3 compatibility in a compact, stylish design. It's a great choice for anyone looking to print A3 photos without breaking the bank.
The HP Officejet Pro X576dw is an affordable, economical and well-designed printer offering record-breaking print speeds. It merges comfort, speed and print quality with low cost per page. We highly recommend it!
