Canon imageCLASS MF229 dw multifunction printer

Epson WorkForce WF-3620 wireless all-in-one printer
Epson's WorkForce WF-3620 prints in color at roughly 10 pages per minute, or in black and white at 19 pages per minute. This inkjet printer connects wirelessly to computers or mobile devices or with a USB connection to a single computer.
The automatic document feeder has a capacity of 30 sheets of paper and the total tray capacity is 250 sheets. It's a smaller overall machine at a lower price point that still produces quality documents and images suitable for business purposes.
If your office environment is small or you're looking for a good in-home printer and fax machine, a solid purchase is this Epson.
Brother MFC-J680DW wireless color photo printer
Brother is a brand with loyal followers, and the MFC-J680DW is a solid example of why. It has a 100-sheet paper capacity and a 20-sheet automatic document feeder; black and white pages print at 12 per minute and color pages print 10 per minute. The smaller paper capacity means that this inkjet is better suited to a small home office that frequently prints smaller quantities and regularly faxes documents.
The touchscreen display lets you customize shortcuts to your most commonly used features. Brother printers are now equipped with Brother Creative Center on the display screen, which lets you use templates right on the printer for easy set up of calendars, forms, or seasonal and special occasion documents and the Brother iPrint & Scan is the free app that enables mobile device printing.
Dell Color Cloud H625cdw smart multifunction printer
Ideal for a micro-office environment that requires heavier usage, the Dell Color Cloud H625cdw can do everything larger office models can. The 4.3-inch touch screen is customizable with presets that are clear and user friendly already. It can print up to 25 pages per minute and the laser printer handles image and text equally well. The 300-sheet paper capacity can be upgraded to 850 with an additional paper tray.
The Dell Document Hub stores documents, even when the printer isn't connected to a computer or mobile device and it keeps frequently used templates available, so you don't have to constantly search for them.
The Dell Printer Hub software makes updating easy and provides toner alerts when it's running low and a 50-sheet automatic duplex document feeder makes faxing simple. You can also program up to 200 fax speed-dial entries. If your office faxes as much as it prints, the Dell Color Cloud H625cdw is ideal.
Canon PIXMA MX922 wireless office all-in-one printer
Canon's PIXMA MX922 inkjet all-in-one is perfect for small home or office spaces. The emphasis with this printer is on photo quality, so if your office documents generally include images or if you find yourself doing much of your own picture printing after a family vacation, it's a good overall investment.
With a 250-sheet paper capacity and a 30-page automatic document feeder, you can print and fax for the whole work day. A separate photo paper tray holds 20 sheets for 4x6 photos, which means you don't have to pause to swap out paper between jobs and you can program up to 100 coded speed dials for faxing and receive 250 incoming pages. The auto duplex feature easily double-sides all of your documents, including faxes, to save you paper without eating into your valuable time.
HP Officejet Pro 8620e all-in-one printer
The HP Officejet Pro is a jack-of-all-trades in your office or at home and it can handle heavy duty usage, which is great since the Instant Ink subscription is available with an HP purchase and it's more affordable than buying individual cartridges.
A 250-sheet paper capacity means you won't be constantly refilling the paper drawer to get your jobs done. It prints 21 pages per minute in black and white, 16 in color, and the auto-duplex function creates two-sided pages in batches of 50, while the automatic document feeder can also handle 50 pages at a time for printing and 100 pages for faxes. The 4.3-inch color touchscreen makes it easy to go back and forth between functions without hunting around for just the right button. For a home or micro office that has large printing requirements and budgets to be mindful of the HP Officejet Pro is a good choice.
HP ENVY 7640 wireless all-in-one printer
A smaller cousin to the larger HP models, the HP ENVY 7640 is better for a home office that's light on printing from one day to the next. The 125-sheet input tray will still take you through a couple of busy days without needing to be refilled, and it lets you get in on HP's Instant Ink subscription service so that cartridges are ready and waiting for you. The ENVY 7640 prints 14 black and white pages per minute and 9 in color.
A separate 15-sheet photo tray allows you to print pictures without needing to switch paper and the 25-sheet automatic document feeder lets you fax longer documents without waiting around to insert the next page. This particular HP all-in-one has the ability to send and receive via fax color pages to and from compatible machines. The 3.5-inch color display is clear and user friendly, too.
A combo deal
There are many all-in-one printers out there, but these are the best-reviewed and best-selling across several platforms. The heavier your regular use of the printer and the fax feature, the more you'll need to spend in terms of quality and capacity. For that reason the Dell Color Cloud H625cdw is a standout combination.
