Read more about these five important printer metrics to understand why we included them to review the top multifunction printers on the market.

Best Low-Tier All in One Printers

Cheap all in one printers perform all the core functionalities that are expected from a good all-in-one printer. 

Low-tier printers, though, are focused on quality over quantity, and may therefore not keep up with highly-demanding printing jobs. Therefore, this category is most suited to small businesses or home offices.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8022

This compact machine is elegant and simple to use. Despite the inexpensive price, it is a WiFi printer and can be connected to mobile phones for faster printing.

The dedicated app enables to scan and save documents on the cloud, to print them directly from the device when needed. The practical LCD screen makes it easy to navigate through the different functions.

Compact yet mighty, this device includes many of the high-end models’ features, such as double side printing, wireless connectivity, an LCD screen, and XL-ink cartridges that ensure up to 2,600 mono and 1,900 colour prints. 

In addition, it is possible to replace just the single colour ink cartridges once they run out, rather than the whole module.

5 Important Printer Metrics

The printer that is best for you depends purely on the printing needs of your business in terms of printing quality requirements, volume, speed, as well as other minor factors.

To pinpoint your printing needs, we have narrowed down five printer characteristics and features: printer type - whether it is a inkjet printer or a laser printer - the duty cycle, speed, quality, and connectivity.

To read about each individual metric, click on the respective heading:

Printer Type

Inkjet or laser refers to the type of technology the printer utilises to print on paper. Inkjet printers are generally cheaper to buy and produce great, clear images, but yield higher costs per page in the long run.

Laser printers can be more expensive upfront and are not be the best for image printing, but are faster and bear minimal running costs.

Inkjet vs. Laser

  • Inkjet printers spray liquid ink through microscopic nozzles onto paper
  • Lasers printers are equipped with a drum that fuses or melts toner powder onto paper.
Monthly Duty Cycle

Duty cycle is an indicator of the maximum prints the device can perform in a month without being exposed to risk of permanent damage. 

This value should not be intended as a precise number, but it is very useful when comparing different models to obtain an idea of the robustness of the device. 

We recommend that you opt for a model whose duty cycle is well beyond your estimated workload, to ensure that your operations can run smoothly and free of troubles.

Page Volume All in One Printers

Printing Speed

Printing speed is expressed in Prints per Minute (PPM) and refers to the number of pages of plain black and white text a printer can deliver in one minute.

Some printers might have better lifespan but not print so fast, and vice versa. To understand what is best for you, try to think about the type of tasks you perform most commonly, and the printing volumes you require. 

Generally, most office printers average 20-40 PPM, but for larger offices or businesses where printing bigger volumes is rather frequent, the number should be higher.

Printing Quality

Printing quality is commonly defined in Dots per Inch (DPI), which corresponds to the number of dots that can be placed on a line of one inch. 

The higher the value, the higher the sharpness and level of detail of your prints. The most common resolution is 600 DPI. However, you may need a higher DPI if you frequently print images.

DPI is usually expressed in two numbers: the first refers to the quality on the horizontal line, and the second refers to the quality on the vertical line.

Wireless Connectivity

All models selected in our list have by default a USB and LAN connection, which easily integrate the printer into the office internet network. 

Most, however, are wireless printers that connect over the office WiFi or directly to the source (laptop, mobile phone, etc.) without passing through the network. 

Other technologies have been designed specifically for mobile phones and include Near Field Communication (NFC), Android, Apple AirPrint, Google Cloud, and others.

Find Your Next All in One Printer

All in one printers can vary widely in terms of features and performances and it can be difficult to figure out which model is best for your business. The parameters analysed in this guide, such as the printing technology, duty cycle, speed, quality and connectivity features, can help you find the model that best tackles your needs.
