If you are in the market for a new printer, here are three of the best printer deals for 2017.
BEST OVERALL ALL-IN-ONE PRINTER: Epson WorkForce Pro WF-4630 All-In-One ($175)
The Epson WorkForce Pro WF-4630 offers the most features at the best possible price. With excellent print quality—featuring black text at near laser-print quality—this printer has the base options covered. However, the addition of NFC touch-to-print and WiFi Direct support (network-free printing) really help this model to soar past its competitors. More importantly, perhaps, you can print directly from your iOS or Android device, too.
In addition, the Epson WorkForce Pro WF-4630 has a 330-sheet paper capacity. This is split between its 250-sheet main drawer as well as an 80-sheet multipurpose tray. This combination allows the printer to perform two-sided printing as well as copying, scanning, and faxing thanks to a 35-page automatic document feeder; with 2-sided multipage faxing options, too.
Finally, the Epson WorkForce Pro WF-4630 has quite the intuitive touchscreen control panel with a 20-page per minute black-and-white print speed (again, near laser printer speeds) and a 7.3-page per minute color page print speed. Indeed, though, this is, in fact, a four-color inkjet printer with a maximum resolution of 4800 x 2400 dpi, which means you can have the highest resolution documents. And if you elect to spend a little more up front on high-yield cartridges, this printer will definitely give you a low cost per page value.
BEST BUDGET PRINTER: HP Envy 5660 Wireless e-All-In-One ($80)
At just shy of $200, the Epson WorkForce Pro WF-4630 is still an excellent value but if you are looking for something even more affordable look no further than the HP Envy 5660 Wireless All-in-One. Although it is a low-volume, entry-level printer, it still prints with the utmost quality, even when printing complex photos. As a budget printer, the paper capacity is about half that of its competitor, above, but you can still copy, scan, and print wirelessly.
BEST PHOTO PRINTER: Canon Pixma MG7720 Photo All-In-One ($90)
Finally, if printing images is really your focus, the Canon Pixma MG7720 Photo All-in-One could be the right model for you. Honestly, the Canon Pixma line is well-known for photo printing quality. This printer has fair print speed (about 15 pages per minute for black-and-white and 10 pages per minute for color) with an intuitive 3.5-inch color touch screen and automatic double-sided printing. You can also print on pre-surfaced CD, DVD, and Blu-Ray discs.
