Print at the Home Office With the Best HP Printers

Popular Mechanics Logo By Douglas Helm of Popular Mechanics | Slide 1 of 11: If you work at home or in the office—or are in school—you know how useful having your own printer can be. As far as printers go, HP makes some of the best out there. That being said, they have a ton of options to choose from, and narrowing them down can be a bit of a daunting task. There are laser printers, inkjets, all-in-one printers, and much more. Instead of spending hours upon hours researching the right printer for you, you can check out our list below to quickly find one that fits your needs.What to ConsiderWhen you’re looking into printer options, there are several important factors to consider. They are:Laser Versus Inkjet: HP makes both laser printers and inkjet printers. Inkjet printers project ink droplets onto the paper while laser printers transfer powdered ink using an electric charge. The biggest difference between these models is price and quality. Inkjets tend to be cheaper in price but the quality isn’t quite as high as lasers. Laser printers, however, can save you money in the long run if you print in large volume each month. Connectivity: Some printers allow Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections, which can be easy and convenient to use. Many printers also allow wired connections, which tends to be more reliable. Functionality: If you need your printer to do more than just print, you’ll want to check out its functionality features. Many printers also have the capability to scan, copy, and more.How We SelectedWe carefully selected the HP printers below based on a variety of factors. First, we made sure to categorize them by use case. That way you can simply select the printer that best suits you. We also made sure all of our choices have also been reviewed by top-notch publications like TechRadar, PCMag, and Lifewire. In addition to these caveats, we only include printers that have at least four stars or more in Amazon reviews. You’ll also find printers that meet a variety of budgets. In short, if you’re in the market for an HP printer, you’ll be able to find what you’re looking for here.
