A few hours from now we would be saying goodbye to 2012 and welcome a new year that promises more advances in technology. While we already know that 3D printing is one of the biggest stories that graced this year’s headlines, we cannot ignore other printers that made document management easier and more efficient for many of us.
So, before we start changing our calendar, let us take a quick look at three of the best printers that received the highest rating on CNET, a premier tech media website.
HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus e-All-in-One
This multifunction printer is perfect for offices, home users, and photo enthusiasts hunting for an upgrade at a price that’s just a little over $200. Among its strongest points include the ability to print professional-quality photos and documents quickly, versatile connectivity options, auto-duplexer, cloud printing (ePrint and AirPrint compatibility), and a legal-size scanning bay. It comes with a classy design, as well as a fast and reliable performance.
Epson WorkForce 845 All-in-One Printer
If you’re looking for the best multifunction printer under $200, then this might just be what you need. It excels in print speed and output quality, plus it comes with a hardware working overtime in auto-duplexing, wireless networking, and mobile printing support by way of Epson’s suite of Connect mobile printing services. Its refined design and Epson’s Connect cloud-printing portfolio make this printer a stand out in the group of competing inkjet workhorses.
Epson Stylus NX430 Small-in-One All-in-One Printer
This space-saver is a practical investment for students and office jockeys who print high-quality photos and documents. Its small size earned it the moniker “small-in-one.” Still, it lives up to its promise of providing users fast and quality performance and hassle-free Wi-Fi connectivity. The most recent addition of iPrint apps for smartphones makes this device a real steal.
