When we are living in an almost "paper free" environment, thinking about buying a printer is probably not one of our top priorities, but there's always that label, card or even that photograph for computer-less grandma what makes us keep an ink printer nearby. Now, add the fact that they can behave like a copier machine and a scanner... and now we are talking. Did we mentioned they are wireless too?
Compact and white: Epson Artisan 725
This all in one wonder will print a 4" x 6" photo in less than 10 seconds. The Artisan will also perform really good for everyday tasks as almost 10 pages per minute in BW and 9 PPM in full color. The smart touch panel is 2.5" LCD and you can do small tasks computer-less
. Quality, like on all Epson printers is excellent and the only issue we always have with this printer, is that replenishing all the 6 ink packs, will cost you almost, as much as the printer. Setting up WiFi is really easy and you can place the printer wherever you want and it doesn't need to be mandated by the length of the USB cable.
Big and powerful: HP Officejet 4500
The HP Officejet is a true performer. At 28 PPM in BW and 22 PPM in color, you can see that this printer is leaving the Epson at the start line! You can print borderless photos up to 8.5 x 11. Switching to high capacity ink packs, will triple the number of pages that you can print. One of the features we find truly convenient is that you can finish a critical job when the ink is low by automatically switching to BW or any color. Ethernet and wireless 802.11 g/b connectivity.
Cheap ink but bad scanning: Kodak ESP 7250
The Kodak ESP 7250 will seamlessly connect to your mobile device for over the air printing. With simplified WiFI set up, you can connect to your wireless network in seconds and be printing in no time. You can print from iPads, iPhones, Blackberries with the free Kodak Pic Flick App. The Kodak has the lowest ink replacement cost in the industry at $9.99 black ink pack. It can also print 2 sides with a built-in functionality for that feature
