We compare the strengths and weaknesses of Epson, Canon, and HP printers, so help you pick the best one for you.
The best portable printers let you print anywhere with compact designs, handy batteries and even scanning and copying capability you can carry in your bag.
The Epson EcoTank Pro ET-5850 is impressively fast, makes very high-quality prints, and keeps ink costs very low.
The HP Smart Tank Plus 651 has refillable ink tanks and comes with thousands of pages' worth of ink, but the low-cost printing and excellent print quality are counterbalanced by slow performance.
The Pixma TS8320 offers plenty of features for photo enthusiasts, but above-average ink costs limit its appeal for general office tasks.
The Brother INKvestment MFC-J995DW all-in-one inkjet printer is a solid choice for most tasks, and delivers very low ink costs, though photo printing is inconvenient.
The Brother MFC-L2750DW is a quick small-office all-in-one that delivers a low cost per page, plenty of features and lots of speed.
The HP Color Laser MFP179fnw is well-suited for modest duty in a small office. Find out if its the best for your setup by reading our HP Color Laser MFP179fnw review.
The Canon ImageClass MF743Cdw is very fast, full-featured and keeps printing costs low, but two-sided printing is a bit sluggish.
The Epson EcoTank ET-4750 offers a full set of features, fast printing, and high image quality, making it a great printer for most uses — but the real selling point is its extremely low ink costs.
The OfficeJet Pro 9025 offers loads of speed and features for high volume work, and very competitive ink costs, but image quality via the document feeder could be improved.
The HP M148fdw offers high image quality and lots of features and speed for the money. But the control-panel operation is a little clumsy, and the wireless setup is a chore.
The small wireless HP Tango X prints quickly and delivers high print quality, but the smartphone copy and scan functions leave much to be desired.
The Brother MFC-J895DW all-in-one inkjet printer delivers solid performance in many categories, and average ink costs, but the photo-scan quality and speed are lacking.
Outfitted with a basic set of features, this small-office all-in-one delivers a low cost per page, speedy performance and high image quality.
The TS9120 delivers excellent performance, high image quality and CD/DVD disc printing capabilities, with average ink costs.
The TS5120 offers basic features, decent performance and high-quality graphics printing for a fair price, although duplex prints come out lighter.
Large-format printing, high image quality and lots of features are this OfficeJet's specialties, but less-than-stellar print and copy speeds and middle-of-road ink costs make this printer less than optimal.
The MFC-J775DW delivers very low ink costs for an entry-level printer, and though it performs adequately in black -and -white, color speeds are too slow for us to give it a high recommendation.
High image quality, fast printing and quick copying — both one-sided and two-sided — make the MB5420 a great fit for a small office in need of a bargain all-in-one.
Fast text and photo printing, high print quality and a fast document feeder make the HP Envy 7855 well equipped for both home duties and office tasks.
