Finding the best printer for your purposes can be confusing. Laser or inkjet? Regular or all-in-one? Should you invest in one of the new reservoir printers? To help you make a more informed choice, here are some of the best printers in Consumer Reports’ ratings, which are available to members. 

Each model below prints out text with dependable quality, and they’ll all connect to laptops and smartphones over WiFi. The 200-plus printers in our ratings are purchased at retail and evaluated by our testers on nearly 250 data points.

To generate an Overall Score, we combine that data with brand reliability and owner satisfaction ratings derived from our member surveys.
