The Best All in One Printers


We often keep asking ourselves “What is the best printer I could buy?” but that is really a random question with no right answer. The answer to that question varies from person to person. All printers are great but what is best for you depends on what the purpose of use is. Are you looking for quality and speed with bright and sharp colors? Then you will probably like a LaserJet. If you are looking for affordability and size, you will be much happier with an office jet. And if you are looking for one with all these purposes, then you want an All-in-One printer. All printers serve different purposes. Photo studios and digital media office look for printers with high quality, while home owners look for an all purpose system and also affordability. Here, we are going to recommend some of the best and top rated printers for your use.


The first and highly recommended all-in-one printer is the HP Office jet Pro 8500A. This machine is fast, efficient and provides real high quality results. The printer has earned the highest rating by users, mostly because of its high speed and supreme printing quality. It can print up to 15 pages per minute, for Black and white, with a high resolution of up to 1200x1200 dots per inch. For color, it goes to printing 11 pages per minute, with printing resolution of 4800x1200 dots per inch. The printer also has the option of scanning, copying and faxing. The best feature of the printer is the touch screen front panel. This feature makes it easy to command and control the printer’s settings and actions. You will not find an easier way to fax than this. The printer size is medium, so you need to make sure you have space on your desk. The printer is highly recommended for office use, but it will serve you just as good in a home study as well. All printers are good, but this one here stands out, because of its all-in-one features, in a budget of $300.


Another great printer falling near the same budget is the Canon Pixma MG8120. It is one of the fastest in printing, when it comes to printing photos. Like all printers it has a good control panel. Its 3.5 inch LCD screen is equipped to preview printing of photos, and thus makes it easier to copy and scan documents. Its printing speed goes up to an average of 12 pages per minute, with a resolution of 600x600 dots per inch. The printer is compatible with multiple types of memory cards or direct printing from your camera. You can easily connect your printer to the computer through USB, Ethernet and even Wi-Fi. Its only backdrop is that it has no built-in fax option.

Tips and comments

All printers these days are superior printing machines, but these are the best you can spend your money on and serve an all purpose use. Other all in one printer types you should check out are Epson Artisan 835 and HP LaserJet Pro M1217. These are a bit larger in size, but with a supreme and fast printing quality, they shall serve you well.
