Best All-in-One Printers 2014

Best All-in-One Printers 2014
By

The latest desktop printers — called all-in-ones, or AIOs— do a lot more than simply churn out documents and photos. They've combined and consolidated complementary technologies, like a scanner and fax machine, and added intuitive touch-screen controls. These new multifunction devices also provide a host of new services, including Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, email capability, the ability to print directly from the Web, memory card and USB key slots and the ability to automatically order new ink or toner cartridges.

Because they vary so considerably in size, capabilities, speed and cost, there isn't a one-size-fits-all all-in-one. However, we've selected the best of the best for your specific needs, use and budget. Here are our top picks.

    The HP8600 is a good printer but has a serious hardware defect. The touchscreen will wash out to the point where it cannot be used. This makes copying and faxing challenging. Check out the HP support forums before you buy this one. I am at the point of throwing mine out as missing the touchscreen makes it too frustrating to enjoy. HP does not offer a replacement part for this.

    Poor performance by the Epson WorkForce WF-3540 is a big disappointment.This printer fails to make the grade when it comes to printing graphics or photos. No matter what I do to remedy the problem, 99% of my graphics and photographs have mis-colored bars running through the image field. It is not fulfilling my primary purpose for buying this printer. Cleaning the nozzles fails to cure the problem - nothing works! I will just have to let my husband use this for straight printing of documents and find a replacement for my graphics and photo print work.

    HP has always been a reliable printer and computer brand in my family, but we also like the Brother brand in terms of all in one printers. It's rated high here http://www.squidoo.com/Top-all-in-one-printer . I just feel like the HP8600 isn't worth it with the reviews I've heard on it.

    very helpful review but you don't include envelope handling (a complaint about the brother) - how does sammy do with envelopes; nor do you mention dpi, postscript capability, nor physical size. a short tech spec summary would help at the conclusion of the review. still, great review.Here are another Best And Cheap Printer​ from http://thetop16.com/2014/03/printer/
