Canon Pixma MP560 1. Canon Pixma MP560 – The Pixma MP560, successor to the Pixma MP620, is the most compact Canon inkjet to feature both wireless capabilities as well as automatic duplexing. The MP560 was also the first Pixma to print directly from a USB Flash drive. The MP560 offers borderless 4×6 prints in 39 seconds, a 2.0 inch LCD and the ChromaLife100+ five-color ink tank system. Canon Pixma MP560 review
Canon Pixma MX860 2.  Canon Pixma MX860 – One of two new arrivals from Canon in early February, the MX860 is an all-in-one for the office with scanning, copying, printing and faxing capabilities.  The Pixma MX860 also features five ink tanks, color print resolutions up to 9600 x 2400 dpi, and a 2.5 inch TFT color display. Canon Pixma MX860 review
HP Photosmart C4780

3. HP Photosmart C4780 The C4780 could be a great companion for any student.  It’s wireless, compact and good-looking; it is also functional and relatively cheap.  Yes, the print speeds were slower than advertised and the text could have been sharper but the fact that C4780 will keep printing even after a cartridge expires is a huge plus for any student on a deadline. HP Photosmart C4780 review

4. Canon Pixma Pro9500 Mark II The Canon PIXMA Pro9500 Mark II is a second generation printer featuring 10 individual ink tanks, two paper feeding options, the new Ambient Light Correction feature, a print resolution up to 4800 x 2400 dpi, and a PictBridge port. Canon Pixma Pro9500 Mark II review 

Canon Pixma MP990

5. Canon Pixma MP990The Canon PIXMA MP990 Wireless Photo All-in-One is a recent Editor’s Choice Award winner thanks to fabulous photo quality, cool features, and a great design. Canon Pixma MP990 review 

6.  Canon Pixma Pro9000 Mark II – Like the Pixma Pro9500 Mark II, the Pixma Pro9000 Mark II is a second generation photo printer.  It features eight individual ink tanks, two paper feeding options, and the new Ambient Light Correction feature for half the price of the Pixma Pro9500 Mark II. Also, did we mention that “the Pro9000 Mark II might just be the ideal entry point for amateur artists?” Canon Pixma Pro9000 Mark II review

7. Canon Pixma MX330   The Pixma MX330 is a solid choice for those consumers looking for a home office printer around $100.  It’s a 4-in-1 device that does everything decently well – if not great – and it is visually appealing. Canon Pixma MX330 review 
HP Officejet Pro 8000

8.  HP Officejet Pro 8000 Wireless The single function HP Officejet Pro 8000 Wireless inkjet printer would be good fit for a home office looking strictly for a printer.  When printing on decent paper, the Pro 8000 gives consumers laser quality prints while avoiding the high initial cost of a laser printer. HP Officejet Pro 8000 Wireless review

HP Officejet Pro 8500 Wireless 9.  HP Officejet Pro 8500 Wireless The HP Officejet Pro 8500 Wireless All-in-One is definitely a useful machine; it offers users the ability to print, scan, copy and fax with multiple computers, one computer, or zero computers. More importantly, it does all of these things well. HP Officejet Pro 8500 Wireless review

10. Epson Stylus NX515 – The stylish Stylus NX515 All-in-One features fast print speeds, 4×6 photos in 20 seconds, a 2.5” tilt-screen LCD, Ethernet and wireless connectivity, and DURABrite Ultra pigment-based ink. Epson Stylus NX515 review
