Connecting a printer to your PC or network doesn't mean you have to worry about finding the right cables and hooking everything up. Instead, why not use Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct, or NFC for simple, clutter-free connections to all your devices? To help you decide which wireless printer is right for you, we've rounded up a bunch of the best for a variety of uses and environments.

Color laser printing

HP LaserJet Pro M254dw

HP's laser printer spits out about 22 color pages per minute, can duplex print both sides, and it can handle connections over Wi-Fi, through the HP Smart app, or directly from a USB drive. A 2.7-inch pop-up display allows for easy control and keeps you informed about the print job, and the high-volume toner cartridges allow for longer printing before requiring replacement.
