Printers have come a long way from the time when they used to be heavy, clumsy, and ugly. In the modern day and age, people are graced with wireless printers that look pretty, are efficient, and they certainly don’t take up entire rooms. For those who don’t know, we even have a thing such as wireless printers, these printers are way more convenient than the usual ones and there are quite a many reasons behind this. One of the biggest reason being the fact that these printers can be controlled remotely from your PC, as well as your smartphones. You can print anything you want on the fly, and it’s done in a couple of minutes.
Despite being at least half a decade old, wireless printers still find themselves in a struggle to make a mark, it’s not that they are not efficient enough. Perhaps people don’t want experimenting with something they don’t know about properly. With that said, for those daring ones who are roaming the market in the search for the wireless printers, there’s a good news, and a bad one; the good news is that the market is filled with all sorts of amazing wireless printers from some of the top brand, however, the market happens to be so saturated that it can easily confuse even the most expert people.
To avoid that confusion, and conflict, we have compiled a list of some of the best wireless printers in the market at the moment. Keep in mind that any price that we may mention might get changed in near future. So without further ado, let’s take a look
The first one on the list is Brother MFC-J4620DW, this one happens to be a rather
Well, for the starters, this printer is for people who only have budget in their mind. It’s light weight, doesn’t take up much space, and gets the job done almost all the time. It has the ability to print on single sheets of paper up to tabloid size; the printer is also small and compact in size, and can be easily moved; and has the option to connect via NFC, Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct as well.
All the good things aside, there are some issues with the printer as well; it isn’t as fast as most competitors in the market; the printing quality isn’t as good as we’d like it to be, and the paper capacity isn’t anything ground breaking. Overall, it’s a good printer that is known to get the job done when required.
When it comes to technology and electronics in general, Samsung has established itself as one of the leadin names. Today’s no different, next up, we have the Samsung Xpress M2026W, this black and white laser printer happens to be among the most favourite wireless printers by the consumers. The reason behind that is quite simple to understand, and today, we are going to take a look at exactly that. So without further ado, let’s take a look at the Samsung Xpress M2026W.
Right out of the box, this printer looks good, and feels good. For those who don’t know, it comes with reasonably small footprint, and fast printing speed; something that is essential for a lot of people. Pretty much like other wireless printers, this one can print using Wi-Fi, NFC, Wi- Fi Direct, and mobile print; it’s lightweight and can be moved pretty easily, and the prints don’t come out shabby at all.
To be fairly honest, there is no downside to this amazing printer. It gets the job done as it is supposed to, and is really affordable.
Let’s put aside the mid-range wireless printers aside for a moment, take a look at the Canon Pixma Pro-10S. This one happens to cost around $700, and it might seem like a lot of money, there’s a reason why this is so expensive. No, you’re not paying that much money for a brand name, you’re paying for flawless printing, and an amazing value for money. So without further ado, let’s take a look.
Right out of the box, the Prixma Pro-10S makes a statement, the printer looks absolutely gorgeous. The entire body is made out of premium components and looks great in the grey and black colour it comes in. But enough about the looks, how’s the performance on it? Well, you’d be glad to know that the performance on the Pixma Pro-10s happens to be one of the best one we have seen. Keep in mind that this is a colour printer, and the pictures that you print out of it looks absolutely stunning to say the least. The pictures that come printed out of the Pixma Pro look no less than actual paintings. However, if black and white text is your thing then you should be happy to know that it prints one of the finest looking texts. In addition to that, Canon also sells you different type of printing paper for your needs.
At almost 700, there isn’t really anything wrong with the Pixma Pro-10S. However, we do wish that the printer had the ability to use paper rolls for printing.
The next up on our list is the Epson Expression Home XP-425, this is one of the more affordable wireless printers. This one happens to be from the famous Expression Home lineup by Epson. The early units received mix reviews but the listed issues seem to be fixed. So without wasting anymore time, we are going to take a look at the Expression Home XP-425.
Right off the bat, you should know that this, by no means, is a flagship printer like the Pixma Pro by Canon. As a matter of fact, this is a compact and inexpensive wireless printer that is made to get the job done properly. There is nothing fancy about this printer, but that’s what it’s all about. You can print wireless, and the operations are actually very, very, quiet. Which obviously is a good thing.
If it was a printer that had the price above a couple hundred bucks, then it would have been really easy to nitpick. However, with this one, there isn’t anything wrong given the price you paying. The XP—425 is an easy-to-use-and-set-up printer.
The next wireless printer on our list is the Dell B1265DFW, and as complicated as they name may sound, the printer is actually really, really good. However, there is something you should know about this printer. For those who don’t know, Dell isn’t involved in the manufacturing of this printer, as a matter of fact, this printer is manufactured by Samsung. So, without wasting anymore time, let’s take a look.
A great thing about the B1265DFW is that it comes with a number of features that a lot of other printers in the same price group don’t have. For instance, the printer has support for duplex printing, it can easily print through USB, as well as wireless connections, the feed slot happens to have more than just one purpose, the cartridge replacement process happens to be super easy, and the printer comes with a PaperPort14.
The downsides, however, is that the printer isn’t as fast as someone would want. But overlook that, and you get a pretty solid printer.
We are now going to take a look at the HP Deskjet 2540 All-In-One printer. Before we begin, let’s shed some light on HP’s Deskjet lineup, this lineup happens to be one of the most affordable lineups HP has to offer, and there are quite some reasons for that. First one being the fact that this is the perfect printer or those looking for a printer that works well in a home, or an office environment. So with that out of the way, let’s take a look.
The printer comes with a slew of printing options like ePrint, AirPrint, as well as wireless print, it comes with both the standard type of cartridge as well as the cartridge that has a higher yield; the wireless connection also happens to be really fast; has an LCD display to provide the necessary information.
Do we have any issue with the Deskjet? We don’t get any support for NFC, and people who don’t like changing cartridges should know that the process is a bit tricky.
We are now looking at the Kodak HERO 9.1 printer, as the name says, it’s safe to say that this happens to be an all in one printer that probably will be good for a majority of people. Before we get into the technical details, there is something you should know about this printer. Keep in mind that this printer is best suited for home or small offices. So, without further wasting anymore time, let’s take a look.
The Kodak HERO 9.1 is a great printer that is capable of printing, faxing, as well as copying. Last but not least, the printer can also be used as a standalone email sender. Another great thing about this printer is that it comes with Wi-Fi and Ethernet capabilities, and last but not the least, the cost of running this printer isn’t as high so that’s certainly a good thing.
The only downside, however, is the fact that although this printer is good, the printing speed is a bit slow, and the paper capacity isn’t too good.
We have another Canon printer on the list, but it’s not as expensive as the Pixma Pro. With that said, considering how it isn’t as expensive, it’s obviously not as premium and feature rich as the Pixma Pro. But how good is it? Let’s find out without wasting anymore time, let’s take a look.
Probably the best feature about the ImageClass wireless printer is the fact that it has to ability to fax, copy, print, and even scan, but that’s not all; this is done all in duplex mode, and for those who don’t know, duplex printing basically means printing that’s done on both sides. The ImageClass also comes with the support for automatic document feeder, Wi-Fi, and Ethernet support.
Aside from an otherwise amazing printer, there are some things that you should know that if you are willing to print or scan using your mobile, then it’s can be done only using Wi-Fi access points, and there’s no paper handling upgrade.
We have another Dell printer on our list and this time, it’s the Colour Cloud Multifunction printer. For those who are wondering if it’s as good as the one we talked about earlier, then it certainly is. The reason why it is so good is simply because the feature list is quite extensive as opposed to the other Dell printer and even some other printers in the list. So without further ado, let’s take a look.
The H625cdw features a single-pass, duplex printing that will be good for people who prefer to have paper on the both side printed for better results, and saving the paper as well; the printer also happens to have one of the best cloud based services, and a plethora of ways to print; you can print using NFC, Wi-Fi Direct, and some other options as well. Another great thing about this printer is that the printing quality is top notch regardless of the type of printing you’re doing.
At a stellar $400 price point, there isn’t anything at all that’s wrong with the H625cdw. It’s an amazing wireless printer that gets the job done, and is pretty good at it.
The last one on the list is the Officejet Pro x476dw by HP, and this is the second HP printer we are reviewing. For those who don’t know, this is obviously better and more advanced than the previous HP product we have reviewed. So, without further ado, let’s take a look at the final entry.
Straight out of the box, one can tell that the printer is not joking around. The looks on this are subtle but aggressive enough to let people know about its presence. However, looks aren’t the concern here. The main concern is about how this printer performs and in all honesty, it performs pretty darn well. The printer offers a large tray for paper sheets, it has absolutely no warm up time required, and the touch screen controls are easy to use. In addition to that, the printing speed is really fast, the printer can print in duplex mode, and the picture/text quality is amazing.
Given the price, and amount of amazing things that can be achieved by this printer. The only downside would be the fact that the printer can’t sense the size or type of paper.
