11x17 Photo Printer

Top 10: The Best All-in-One Printers

Something big happened to home and small-office printers in the last few years: They reached a point where it no longer made sense, most of the time, to buy one that wasn't an all-in-one (AIO) model.

Also known as multifunction printers, AIO printers can scan documents and make copies; in the case of business-oriented models, some also support old-school phone-line faxing. AIOs have been phenomenally popular sellers, and price wars among the four or five major makers have been so intense that inexpensive printers that "only" print have been pushed to the side—especially among inkjets.

We don't mean to talk down laser-based AIOs, but inkjets are where you'll find today's best AIO printer values for budget-strapped offices. Even under-0 color inkjet models nowadays can scan and fax, and so long as you have the living or work space to dedicate to one, an AIO is where to start looking with any budget-printer purchase. Plus, a new wave of business-oriented inkjet AIOs—notably, from Canon, Epson, HP, and Brother—has brought about a major shift in the fortunes of the inkjet. Now, it can compete for the affections of IT folks and small-business owners alike as a viable alternative for workgroups.

The right technology for you to choose, though—inkjet or laser—is really a function of the kind of printing you intend to do, and your budget. The very cheapest AIO printers are inkjets, and the least-expensive laser AIOs will print in black-and-white only. A good rule of thumb to follow: If quality photo printing matters to you at all, an inkjet-based AIO is the only way to go; if photo printing doesn't matter much, and most of your output is reams of monochrome business documents or drafts, a laser model is worth considering, as it may save you plenty of bucks on operating costs over the long run. Color laser AIOs also exist, and some models are capable of good-quality non-photo-centric color output (for things like business presentations and brochures), but they start around $300.

HP Officejet Pro X576dw "PageWide" Multifunction Printer

The biggest X-factor that we've seen emerge in recent years in the inkjet-vs.-laser debate was brought on in 2013 by HP, which debuted printers employing its PageWide technology. PageWide printers are inkjets, but they employ a stationary array of printing nozzles, which lets them print at high speeds reminiscent of a top-notch laser. They're meant for businesses—not consumers—but they are a compelling alternative to color lasers for heavy-printing workgroups, an area once completely owned by high-volume laser printers. One of our favorite AIOs for some time now has indeed been a PageWide machine, the HP Officejet Pro X576dw. Epson, meanwhile, rolled out its PrecisionCore technology, a new design for its inkjet heads, that enables similar efficiencies.
