Epson WorkForce 545 printer

Best All-in-One Printers 2015

With dozens of models with similar specs — Amazon lists nearly 1, 150 results for inkjets and laser printers when you search for "multifunction printer" — it can be difficult to find the all-in-one printer that offers the best combination of performance, output, quality, features and value. But based on more than 100 hours of in-depth testing, we've identified the top inkjet and laser printers you can buy.

Our favorite overall printer is the HP Envy 5540 ($80), which produces high-quality prints and scans and prints graphics with impressive speed. If you do a lot of photo printing, you should also consider the Epson Expression Premium XP-820 ($151) which has produced some of the most impressive images we've seen.

In other categories, we think the best budget printer is Canon's ImageClass MF217W ($110), which recorded some of the fastest print, copy and scan times among the laser printers we've reviewed. Business users will be happy with the Canon ImageClass MF229dw laser printer ($196) for its low printing costs over time, while Canon's Pixma MG7520 inkjet ($99) also keeps costs low for high-volume printing. As for large-format printing, our nod goes to the Brother MFC-J5620DW inkjet ($170) for its ability to handle 11 x 17-inch prints with style. Read on to get all the details on our best picks.

Inkjet Versus Laser

What kind of printer you should buy — inkjet or laser — depends on how you plan to use your printer. If your primary focus is printing photos, you'll want an inkjet. The photo print quality of an inkjet is typically superior to what you'd get with a laser printer and you'll be able to print on various photo media, including matte papers, in addition to the typical glossy. If your printing needs are more business-oriented, a laser model will likely suit you better, though there are business-oriented inkjets, as well. Laser printers' razor-sharp text printing can't be beat, nor can their speed.

Laser all-in-ones are also built for high volume, with many capable of printing up to 10, 000 pages a month. If your needs are much more modest, an inkjet specified for up to 1, 000 pages a month could be a good candidate. Compare ink and toner costs to ensure your initial investment doesn't turn into a long-term budget-buster.
