Things to consider
The first thing to decide is whether you need an inkjet or laser printer. Inkjet printers are great for home printing thanks to photo quality prints, lower ink costs and their connectivity options. Laser printers are suitable for regular use and printing in high volume, thanks to their large capacity toners and much quicker print speeds.
On each wireless printer, we list all the ways it can connect. Common options are AirPrint for iOS, Google Cloud Print for Android, Wi-Fi for PCs and Macs, and NFC for the latest smartphones and tablets. Lots of printers have more than one connectivity option, so you’ll always be able to find one that’s suitable for your devices.
Laser printers are usually faster than inkjet printers, but be aware that speed varies between brands and type. We list printer speeds in either ppm (pages per minute) or ipm (images per minute), so you can quickly find a printer that meets your needs.
A wireless home printer makes it easy to print from your smartphone and tablet. If most of your documents and photographs are online, it’s the perfect choice. For more professional tasks, you might want to consider a home business printer with built-in scanner, copier and fax machine.
Instant Ink is a feature on selected HP printers. It lets you pay a fixed monthly fee to print a certain number of pages per month, with ink being posted to your address when needed. Instant Ink keeps you in ink and can help save you money, so it’s perfect for businesses.
Long gone are the days when you’d have to wait until you got into the office to print and send off your important stuff. Nowadays, it’s pretty standard to see a printer and scanner in most of our homes.
