Some people take enough worthwhile photos that they it’s worth the money to invest in a decent photo printer. I’m not one of them. That said, I still need to print in colour from time to time: letterhead, business cards and the very occasional presentation for a client. For that sort of job, you don’t need the same sort of graphic fidelity as you get from a photo quality printer. You just need something that’ll print fast, accurate pages in colour or black and white, and you want it to do so as cost effectively as possible.
After over 11 hours of research, I can tell you that the printer you want in this case is a HP OfficeJet Pro 8100 ePrinter. It’s per page printing cost is lower than many laser printers that cost hundreds of dollars more, and it’s fast and cheap to boot.
For my full take on why this printer is such a great deal, head on over to The Wirecutter.
