If you’re running a small home office or just go through a lot of printer ink, take a look at these multi-functional (all-in-one) printers. They have the ability to print, copy, scan, and fax. Plus they do all of this for a relatively inexpensive price.

HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus e
Pros: prints high quality photos and documents, includes useful connectivity features and cloud printing

Cons: touch screen requires hard finger pressing to trigger the functions, large size
This all in one from HP prints professional looking photos and documents with a variety of options. This versatile device is Wi-Fi capable and comes with an ePrint function that lets you print from the cloud. An iOS application allows you to print from any iOS device. It is designed to scan or copy legal size documents using its 4800-dpi resolution, producing crisp and sharp reproductions.

This printer allows the user to send scans to a PC, e-mail folder, memory card, or network folder. The Officejet’s duplexing auto-document feeder flips the pages around for hands free scanning of single or double sided pages.  It prints 12 pages per minute in black text.

Epson WorkForce 845
Pros: great print speeds and document quality, offers a variety of mobile printing options
Cons: relatively slower photo print speeds compared to other inkjet printers. This workhorse will keep up with all the printing needs of a medium to large office. Intuitive control display makes navigating through the menus easy.  

Two media card slots and one PictBridge compatible USB port on the front allow for convenient printing of digital photos.  Wi-Fi connectivity with a host of free mobile printing apps from Epson allows you to print Web pages, photos, and nearly anything else on a smartphone right to the printer.

The Connect Email Print app lets you send your work directly to an email address assigned to the printer, so while you’re out and about you can send your print job to the printer and have it waiting for you when you get back to the office.

Overall, this is a great printer for the money. It prints 12 pages per minute in black text but slows down considerably in its photo printing speed.

Lexmark Platinum Pro 905
Pros: fast prints, two separate paper trays
Cons: expensive, for the price, produces less than inspiring photo prints
The Platinum Pro includes a variety of Smart Solution customizable printing widgets that you can add to the printer’s touch screen menu. It also has the Eco Copy choice that allows you to print on both sides of a paper while using minimal ink. This will help save on costs.

The print speeds are some of the fastest for the industry but they should be when factoring in the total cost of the machine. The print quality is quite good and comes close to matching that of a laser printer.

Lexmark Interact S605
Pros: fast prints, user friendly touch screen, wireless
Cons: could improve on photo quality
This comes highly recommended for a small business or for home use.  This printer comes with an easy to use touch screen and a 100 page paper input tray that uses an adjustable arm to hold everything from envelopes to legal size paper. It prints 8 pages per minute of black text.
As long as you don’t expect the quality of photo prints you’d get from a kiosk, this printer is a reliable workhorse for the small business.
