Find out how we selected and ranked the products.

1. Features: Most important purchase criteria for an inkjet printer

1.1 Types

Ink and laser are the two categories in which a printer is usually differentiated. However, under ‘ink’ type, we further have two categories, i.e. inkjet and ink tank printers.

Inkjet printers have a place for direct cartridges through which the ink is supplied, whereas an ink tank printer comes with a large ink tank-like reservoir which continuously supplies ink to the printer.

On the one hand, ink tanks are traditional, and on the other hand, inkjet is a more modern type. Undoubtedly, the ink tank is preferred due to the continuous supply of ink, but inkjet printers are more convenient when it comes to handling the ink. 

Both types of printers have their own minus plus, especially from a cost point of view. The cartridge printers are cheaper due to the old machinery style, but they can prove heavy on your pockets. While ink tank printers may cost a tad bit higher on the machine, but they are comfortable for ink refills.

While ink tank printers may cost a tad bit higher on the machine, but they are comfortable for ink refills.

1.2 Type of Ink Cartridges

There are three types of ink cartridges, namely two, four and inkwell. A printer comes with any one of them.

  • Two ink cartridges: A printer with this type has room for one black cartridge and an all-in-one colour cartridge.

  • Four ink cartridges: This includes a black cartridge and three separate cartridges for cyan, magenta, and yellow. It is famous by the name - CMYK colour model.

  • Inkwells: Printers with inkwell does use cartridges but draws the ink from large, refillable wells.

Of course, out of the three, inkwells proves to be the most economical in the long run.

1.3 Network Connectivity

The network connectivity of the printer matters. Earlier printers had USB ports or ethernet for connectivity purposes. However, the Wi-Fi networking option is the new demand in the market as it offers convenience. Such a printer can be configured to operate securely in a network area with wireless capabilities. Most of the routers come with a WPS setup function, and an all-in-one function printer with a WPS setup only configures the printing machine easily. Another solution, which is not as good as wireless but certainly better than the wired printer, is picking a printer that has a built-in network card. This can be connected to a network’s available port, and then there is no need to share the printer from a network PC.

As per our research, we believe that a printer must speed up printing at least five colour pages per minute and ten black-and-white pages per minute. Waiting for too long for a page to get printed is not only frustrating but also reduces productivity.

Printing speed depends on certain factors, including what you are printing (text or images), what cartridges you are using (black or colour), the type of paper you are using, and the print quality. Whatever the case is, the sure thing is that the text documents on a “grayscale” printer setting prints is much faster than a full-colour photo demanding high resolution. 

Print speed is either measured in ppm or ipm. Ppm refers to “pages per minute”, and ipm stands for “images per minute”.  They sound similar, but their calculation is slightly different.  Ppm means the print speed of a standard page of text – graphics. Its total doesn’t include the time taken to print complex images.  On the other hand, images per minute is more accurate as it uses the same standard set of MS Word, Excel and Adobe test pages in its calculation.

Print quality is measured in dpi, i.e. dots per inch. It refers to the density of dots that can be printed in one inch. More dots printed per inch means high-resolution text or image.

According to us, the minimum resolution for a black-and-white is 600 x 600 dpi. Whereas a black-and-white printer with resolutions of 2400 x 1200 will produce a high-quality print. Speaking of the colour, 1200 x 1200 dpi is the minimum requirement. And to get the best-coloured printout, look for a printer with a resolution of 4800 x 2400.

1.6 Duty Cycle

A duty cycle means the maximum number of pages that a printer can print in a month. A home printer is good enough if it has a duty cycle of 5000 pages. However, for office use, you need a high duty cycle printer with an increased range of about 20,000 to 25,000-pages.

1.7 Duplexing and ADF

A printer with a duplexing feature can print paper on both sides simultaneously. Although duplexing is a common feature, its availability in budget-friendly products is not much. The duplexing feature ensures hassle-free printing and saves your time as you don’t have to flip the page and re-insert it manually. The feature is helpful, especially when you are printing in batches.

Besides the auto-duplexing feature, get a printer that also has an Automatic Document Feeder (ADF). The name says it all; this feature proves beneficial when you are running batch photocopies or prints as it will automatically detect the paper and use it.

1.8 Memory Card Compatibility

You can make the most of the memory card slot by ensuring that the card slot is compatible with your memory card(s). We say so because memory slot specifications vary greatly, and older-style memory cards hardly work with the latest multifunction printer models.

1.9 Paper Handling

All printers can accommodate legal-sized regular paper, but for specific papers like cardstock, index cards, or envelopes, you need a printer to print on these particular papers. Also, you need to consider the paper size. If you want to print on a larger paper, don’t buy a small printer.

When you are buying a multi-functional printer, then the size of the scanner and copying machine also matters. The printer might be enough to print on large paper, but it could scan or copy small sized documents. Therefore, get a high-end all-in-one printing machine that has a separate scanner feeding tray on the top. You can scan large size papers and scan them all into a single PDF file.

1.10 Yield

Yield means total number of pages a printer can print when the cartridge is fully loaded or the ink tank reservoir is completely filled. An ideal yield number is at least 1000 pages, be it black & white or coloured print. However, compact and budget-friendly printer models can give you even a 500-page yield, and that works well for minor requirements.

1.11 Ink Replacement Cost

Printer inks are expensive, and before you know it, it is time to purchase. In fact, for most people, ink (inkjet or ink tank printer) or toner (laser printer) replacement is a pain point for the printer. Therefore, ink replacement cost is vital to take into consideration while buying a printer.

As discussed above, the ink-based printer is either an inkjet or ink tank printer. If the cartridges run low in an inkjet printer, take it out and replace it with another. Whereas in the ink tank printer, you have to refill the tank. Ink tank printers is a bit high priced, but it has low ink replacement cost.

1.12 Printing Cost

With evolving technology, the cost of printing is coming down. You can get a print at a price as low as a few cents. Calculating the cost-per-page is easy. You have to compare the ink cost with the yield expected from the ink cartridge. Simply divide the cost of the cartridge by the expected yield to calculate the cost-per-page.

1.13 Other Running Cost

There are other factors as well that can help you in saving some bucks. For example, not just the type of cartridge but its brand also matters. Similarly, choose a refillable cartridge as that will facilitate saving. You should ask yourself how much it will cost if the printer breaks down or how much energy will the printer use.

1.14 Ease of Use

While buying any electronics or tech-related product, ‘ease of use’ should be considered. After all, you are buying it to make things easier for you and save time and not spend time learning its functioning every time you use it.

When it comes to printers, you want a smooth ride from installation to troubleshooting. Therefore, check for a few things, like if it can easily load media and have an automatic document feeder. Furthermore, is the ink tank refilling procedure hassle-free, and things don’t mess up when ink filling in the ink tanks. It is an ideal printer if it has simple buttons and if it can print in just a single command.

1.15 Mobile Accessibility

Today printers are smart enough to have mobile accessibility. The mobile accessibility feature gives you more control over your printer, and you can have a printout just at a tap of your mobile. Moreover, modern-day wireless ink printers have mobile phone compatibility, which makes things easier. Brands come with their own applications, and you can operate your printer using them, or you can also use a third-party app.

1.16 Display Screen

The display screen is a good-to-have feature as having a screen helps you use the printer more efficiently and with more access.

1.17 Portability

Not just the shape and size, but the weight of the printer also determine the portability of a printer. If you have a small space reserved for the printer, get a compact version printer. In that case, you may have to let go of the scanner and copier functionality. Similarly, if the area for the printer is not designated, pick a lightweight printing machine.

1.18 Multi-function

Printers don’t come at a low price. Therefore, when you are putting such huge money, then why not buy a machine that does more than printing?

The multi-functional printer, also known as an all-in-one function printer, takes a few more jobs than printing, including scan, copy, and fax. A printer with standard printer functions can limit your purpose and usage. However, if you already have a machine explicitly serving your fax, copy or scan purpose, only then it is worth buying a printer that performs only printing tasks.

1.19 Warranty and After-sale Service

Most printers come with a minimum of a 1-year warranty. One year is acceptable as long as the company provides you with the required and instant support. Your print can get stuck, or it might need a sudden troubleshoot, or the ink cartridge can cause a problem. 

Regarding the customer service, you can know best about it from the customer reviews available on Amazon or other best e-commerce sites.

2. Use Cases: The best inkjet printer for you

2.1 I am a photography student and need a printer for creative printing. Which inkjet printer is best for me?

Nothing beats a coloured image produced by an inkjet printer. However, invest in a good-quality inkjet printer- the one with no less than six ink pots. You can find such printers from brands like Epson and Canon. Cheap inkjet printers use many inks as their cartridges have room for a small amount of ink. You end up using such a quantity of ink that very soon, you out-price your printer.

You end up using such a quantity of ink that very soon, you out-price your printer.

Inkjet printers are ideal for students, home use and small office needs. If you need a printer for printing the documents, a laser printer is better.

4. How-To: Usage hints and care instructions for an inkjet printer

4.1 What are the care tips for a printer?

  • Be safe

If you are going to open the printer due to any reason, make sure it is switched off. This will prevent both you and the printer from any damage.

  • Printer place

Don’t put your printer in any open space. For the best performance, put it in a place that gets plenty of ventilation. A dusty location will shorten the life of your printer by damaging its head and rollers.

  • Keep it clean

Any machine needs regular cleaning to perform well. Build up dust, ink, and other debris inside a printer can cause jams and ink streaks.

Use a damp cloth to clean your printer from the outside. Internals can be cleaned with a lint-free cloth. Avoid using any liquid to clean the inside of the printer, as moisture can lead to poor performance. In fact, you can use a small vacuum cleaner to clean the printer from the inside.

  • Avoid clogged ink nozzles

Clogged nozzles is a common problem faced by inkjet printer users. It happens due to dry ink as that blocks the nozzles. The best way to avoid clogged ink nozzles is to print something regularly. Therefore, even if not required, get into the habit of printing a page every week.

  • Choose the correct ink cartridge

There are two options for buying the correct ink cartridge for your printer- original ink cartridges made by the printer manufacturers or using compatible inks made by third parties.

Compatible inks have reached a point where they can give the same results as that produced by original inks at a lower price. Moreover, they are made from recycled cartridges, so not only you will save money but the environment as well.

Additionally, you need to decide what type of cartridge you need to get. For example, if you print lots of photos, buy photo ink cartridges for better results.

  • Choose the right paper

A paper can bring a significant difference in printing. You can actually differentiate between a good print and a substantial print due to paper.

We recommend using the paper of the same brand to which your printer belongs for the best outcome. For example, the HP Photo Paper will give the best result when used with an HP printer. The manufacturers created the ink, and therefore, they know exactly how the ink bond to surfaces on specific paper coatings.

  • Give printer heads a clean

The white lines running across freshly printed documents or photos indicate that it is time to clean the print head. You can refer to the manual to find out how to clean the print heads correctly. Most printers come with a self-clean function which you can activate with a few clicks; however, you can always wash them manually.

  • Fix mechanical errors

Paper jam is the most commonly occurred mechanical error. Besides, smudges and occasional errors do get in between your printing task. However, proper maintenance can reduce the chance of happening of such mistakes and prolong the life of your printer.

4.2 What are the care tips for the cartridges?

  • Install the cartridges right

Different printers have different mechanisms for installing ink cartridges. Therefore, check your printer’s instruction manual before installing the ink cartridge. If that is not available, download a PDF version of that manual or seek help from YouTube videos.

  • Cleaning schedule

Timely cleaning of the printer cartridge prevents dust accumulation and smooth printer working conditions. Therefore, do not ignore your printer and fix the schedule to clean it properly. You can do the cleaning once or twice a month.

6.3 HP Officejet Pro 7740 Wide Format All-in-One Inkjet Printer

The HP OfficeJet Pro 7740 is an excellent all-in-one inkjet printer. It uses four cartridges (one black and three colours) that yield a high amount of pages at a reasonable price and print good quality photos with nice details. The longer flatbed scanner can even scan tabloid-sized documents, and its automatic document feeder makes it easy to process multiple pages in a row.

The HP OfficeJet Pro 7740 is a bulky and large printer, so you need some particular room for deploying this one. However, the built is excellent, and the body feels solid and sturdy. Removing the paper jams from the rear compartment or the automatic document feeder is very easy. The light in the cartridge panel offers better visibility if you're working in a dark room. Unfortunately, the scanner lid cannot extend the support to larger media like books or magazines.

The display screen is good with responsive touch providing audible touch feedback. Four touch buttons are around the screen, and vertical tilt features offer better visibility.

The HP OfficeJet Pro 7740 has a unique cartridge system. It can yield many pages in a single cartridge, and if you still print a lot of pages, you can choose a higher yield cartridge. The printer also accepts third-party cartridges, but that can void its warranty.

The scanning features are also pretty impressive. You can save any photos with the flatbed scanner, and also scanning several documents at a time using the automatic document feeder (ADF) is possible.

The print speed is no less than 22 ppm (black & white) and 18 ppm (colours). Though colour document printing speed is slow, its accuracy is alright. However, it is not ideal for those who need precise colours. 

All in all, the printer can do everything exceptionally well and can be a great addition to any home or office space.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8210 inkjet printer has most features same as HP Officejet Pro 7740 AIO inkjet printer. It’s just that the former has one function - print, and the latter is a multifunction printer.

Like most HP printers, this one also has a stylish two-tone chassis (black and dark grey). Measuring 49.6 x 58 x 20.3 cm (HWD) with the output tray extended and weighing just 8.62 kg, it's not that big for most desktops.

There are plenty of connectivity options, including Ethernet, Wi-Fi, and USB, and Wi-Fi Direct. Apps like HP's ePrint, Google Cloud Print, AirPrint, and Mopria makes remote printing possible.

As for paper handling, it has a 250-sheet input tray, with no second tray for envelopes and other off-size media. To print on different media, you must first empty and reconfigure the tray.

HP rates this OfficeJet at 22 ppm for black-and-white pages and 18ppm for colour prints. If you are printing a light format text file, the printer churns out the pages slightly faster, at 23.2ppm for black-and-white.

Print quality, which is usually an issue with HP printers, luckily it's not there with this one. Though nothing outstanding is also here, therefore, it is ideal for most home and small-business-oriented environments. The text looks very near to a laser-quality printer. Photo printing is also crisp and sharp.

In conclusion, the HP OfficeJet Pro 8210 is a capable inkjet printer with a reasonable running cost and a relatively low price.

6.5 Canon PIXMA TS3350 multifunction colour inkjet printer

6.6 Epson Workforce WF-2830DWF 4-in-1 Inkjet Printer

The Epson WorkForce WF-2830DWF is an AIO inkjet printer with lots of features and a few minus points.

The printer body is made of durable plastic making the machine solid and sturdy. However, the output tray is thin, and the external rear input tray does not protect against dust to paper. The scanner lid stays open without any help, and the hinges are extendable so that you can scan slightly thicker documents. Moreover, it is a compact size one-in-all printer.

Though the LCD screen is small but yet it is good enough. The menu is easy to navigate, and the screen is easy to see whether you're sitting or standing. You can also tilt the entire display panel for better visibility.

The only downside is page yield. It is bad for the black cartridges, so it asks for replacement quite often. The colour cartridges don't last very long, either. Fortunately, the cartridges are not that expensive, so the overall cost-per-print isn't too high. The printer accepts third-party cartridges, but that can void its warranty.

The Epson Workforce WF-2830 has some great scanning features. The sheetfed scanner comes with an Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) for scanning multiple pages at a time. Since there is no duplex printing, so you need to scan each side separately. Moreover, the flatbed scanner has a good maximum scan resolution and colour depth for enlarging photos.

With a max printing speed of up to 10 ppm (mono) / up to 5 ppm (colour), the printer has a decent printing speed. Printing a few black and white pages doesn't take too long. However, a longer document can take a while, especially if there are colour pages. Photo printing also takes some time. Borderless printing is also possible.

The colour accuracy is not really up to the mark. If you just want to print documents off the web from time to time for personal use, it is okay. For professional documents, you can choose our best value printer - HP OfficeJet Pro 8210 Inkjet Printer.

The connectivity options this printer comes with is quite good. You can set it up using your WiFi router, or Wi-Fi Direct is also possible. Ethernet port and Bluetooth support are missing, but you can still print from your mobile devices with AirPrint or the Mopria Print Service.

This budgeted inkjet printer purchase is right only for the small offices, home offices and students.
