While more and more things are done online through smartphone apps and other means, printing remains a reliable way of obtaining a physical copy of photos, documents, tickets, and other content. Inkjet printers are fast, they're relatively cheap, and they're ideal for ink-heavy prints. No matter your reason for going with an inkjet, we take a look at some of the best you can buy.

If we're making some suggestions
When you're buying a printer, it's best to keep in mind that there's no single option that fixes common issues that come with these devices. The best you can do is find a printer that fits your needs, gives minimal hassle during setup and management, and that doesn't cost too much to keep topped up with ink.
Canon's Pixma TS9120 (opens in new tab) brings an excellent price to performance ratio, making it ideal for most homes with average printing needs. It will quickly print documents and quality photos, plus it can scan and copy when you need to get a bit of office work done. The five-inch touch display makes it easier to keep tabs on print jobs. And you can connect wirelessly, with USB or Ethernet, or you can use a built-in SD card reader.
If you print a lot, especially in a home office situation, Brother's MFC-J6935DW (opens in new tab) is likely a better choice. It adds a fax function to the usual all-in-one print, copy, and scan features, and it can spit out 22 black and white pages per minute to keep up with an elevated load. It handles paper sizes up to 11 inches x 17 inches, and the tray holds up to 100 sheets for less management. Connect wirelessly over Wi-Fi and use popular services like Mopria, AirPrint, Google Cloud Print, and even NFC to adds jobs.
