Best Budget-Friendly Printer
This workhorse from HP connects to a (required) smartphone app that allows users to print, scan, copy and share documents from pretty much anywhere with ease. The Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity features are reliable and relatively simple to set up. Compared to other inkjet printers, this puppy can get the job done quickly—be it double-sided or single-sided, color or black and white—and even boasts a ‘quiet mode’ so your roomie won’t be forced to pull an all-nighter with you. Best of all, the HP Envy 6055 is capable of printing more than just your snoozy schoolwork—it can turn out high-quality borderless photos to boot.
Pros: Wireless, mobile connectivity; quiet mode; double-sided and photo printing
Cons: Doesn’t have LCD interface; customers complain of poor tech support
