10 great printers you can get under $100
Perfect choices for the home office update you desperately need.
With so many people working from home nowadays, it's tough to replicate the kind of amenities you might have had at the office. You may not want to invest in high-quality office supplies if you foresee your stay at home being pretty temporary.
Enter: the reasonably priced printer.
So many professions require printouts, and many people like to use paper references rather than rely on everything being digital. Be sure to get these models before they're gone, as reasonably priced printers are difficult to come by at the moment.
1. A solid model to get you through your home office days
This compact laser printer by Brother is the kind of stolid, hard-working individual you want in a printer. It can print up to 30 pages per minute and has double-sided printing for convenience. Its fast, efficient design and no-frills ease-of-use can save you time and money, and reviewers enjoyed the value for the price. Some reviewers complained about the lack of copying abilities, so be sure to confirm that this printer has everything you need before you buy.
2. An all-in-one printer from Brother
This model takes some of the same aesthetic features of the first printer featured here and applies with them with some new gadgets, including copy, fax, and scan capabilities with wireless printing. It's compact enough for your home office desk and has a 100-sheet tray so you can print off large batches if you prefer. Reviewers enjoyed how easy it was to set up this printer for wireless printing and recommended it for the price.
3. One for all (and all-in-one)
The Epson Expression all-in-one comes with wireless and USB printing, and while it's not as quick or heavy-duty as some of the printers listed here, reviewers appreciated that the replacement ink for this printer was fairly cheap and that they purchased it primarily for their home office or school needs.
4. A workhorse of a WorkForce printer
The Epson WorkForce line of printers sets out to make your home printing job as painless and easy as possible. Equipped with a basic screen for easy use and set-up, this is a great option for someone who wants options. Some reviewers purchased this printer not only for their homes but for their small businesses and recommended it for its versatility.
5. An aesthetically pleasing ENVY printer
This sleek ENVY printer by HP is available at Overstock at a reduced price since it's been refurbished, and comes with the great features of newer ENVY models at a great price. The ENVY 5055 offers many kinds of wireless printing through the HP Smart Ink app and is just streamlined and pretty enough to be a lovely addition to your home office that will make you feel just that much more professional at home.
6. A Canon favorite for a steal
Canon's PIXMA line is a favorite among reviewers and we can see why. This PIXMA model is a top-seller at B&H Photo. It won't break the bank—in fact it costs less than $50—but it also won't come with the same features other printers on this list have. Reviewers say it's easy to set up and use, but it's USB-only and may be a little loud.
7. An HP favorite with lots of great features
This wireless all-in-one printer from HP has more than 4,000 reviews and a solid 4.4 rating on Best Buy. It works with smart home assistants, like Amazon Alexa and Google Home, and has a suite of functionalities suited to all needs, including copying, printing, and scanning.
8. A compact printer by a great brand
This all-in-one printer from Brother is sleek, compact, and perfect for your home office. It allows you to print, scan, copy, and even fax (if you're feeling nostalgic, I guess?). Reviewers give it a strong 4.5-star rating, saying it delivers an impressive performance for its size. They say it's easy to use, fast, and quiet, which is really all you can ask for in an affordable printer.
9. An oldie but a goodie
This printer from Xerox may look like it came from Office Space, but it'll get the job done. It won't come with the fancy touch-screens or wireless capabilities that other printers have, but it will print quickly and efficiently. Xerox is a well-known name in the printer world, so if you're looking for reliability, this could be the best choice for you.
10. A sleek black printer from Canon
The Canon PIXMA makes a second appearance on this list, and for good reason. Canon's PIXMA line is affordable and durable, meaning you can get a whole lot of bang for your buck with one of these models. This printer is wireless and has the ability to copy, scan, and print. It won't take up much space in your office, and it doesn't have a bulky button setup that will leave you frustrated.
