Weight: 4.2kg
Reasons to buy
+Compact+Cheap to buy
Reasons to avoid
-Ink can be expensive-Basic paper handling

The Deskjet 3630 is a decent printer for the price, offering reasonable print speeds and the ability to connect to mobile devices without breaking the bank. Just be wary as its ink cartridges can be priced when picked up from shops. It doesn't quite have the build quality of HP's more expensive Envy models, but if you're looking for an initially cheap model that catches the eye when sat on a shelf, the Deskjet 3630 is a great option.

Great for the traveling professional or someone who needs a small printer for occasional use, printing photos or using the scanner function. It's a bit pricey to buy - and to run - but the flexibility and quality of the printouts is excellent.

4. Epson L655

A printer that comes with two years' worth of ink

Specifications
Print speed: 33ppm
Paper sizes: A4, A5, A6, B5, Envelopes (C4, C6, DL, No. 10), 9 x 13cm, 10 x 15cm, 13 x 18cm, 13 x 20cm, 20 x 25cm, 10 x 14.8cm
Paper capacity: 150 sheets
Dimensions: 515‎ x 360 x 241mm (Width x Depth x Height)
Weight: 7.4kg
Reasons to buy
+Money saving EcoTank ink system+Three-year warranty
Reasons to avoid
-Not the fastest printer-Small paper tray

Consumables are usually expensive when it comes to printers. So it is quite surprising that one vendor, Epson, single-handedly decided to challenge that status quo by allowing users to refill their printer using ink bottles. What's even more surprising is that Epson includes two years of ink with the package; no more expensive cartridges and instead, you have enough material to deliver 11,000 pages worth of black and colour inks (that's 700ml worth of liquid). Oh and there's even a three-year warranty making this a great choice for bean counters fixing the TCO of their printers. The  L655 lacks the features found on cheaper competitors – it is relatively slower (although it has a higher printing resolution) and has a small paper input tray.

Canon Pixma

5. Canon Pixma MG7150

An affordable all-in-one photo printer with Wi-Fi connectivity and a touchscreen

Specifications
Print speed: ISO 15ppm black, 10ppm colour
Print resolution: 9,600 x 2,400

Paper capacity: 145 sheets
Dimensions: 466 x 369 x 148mm (Width x Depth x Height)
Weight: 8.2kg
Reasons to buy
+Wireless+Great print quality
Reasons to avoid
-Not cheap to replace inks-Android use requires app

If you're looking for a great all-round printer which doesn't skimp on print quality for your photographs, then I don't think you will be disappointed by what the MG7150 has to offer.

While it's certainly more expensive than some of the cheap two in one printers you can pick up, it's not a bad price for something which produces high quality prints, especially if you only need to print at A4 or below.

Brother DCP-J4120DW

6. Brother MFC-J3530DW

Brother's versatile printer can handle A4 and A3 sizes

Weight: 20.5kg
Reasons to buy
+Very good print quality+Inexpensive to run
Reasons to avoid
-Expensive-Bulky design

This is a big and bulky printer, that would look more at home in an office than a house - but it's a fantastic performer that can handle both A4 and the larger A3 sizes. It's cheap to run, and most importantly, the print quality is very good, making this a worthwhile investment if you're looking for a fast and flexible printer.

HP Envy 5540 All-in-One printer

7. HP Envy 5540 All-in-One printer

A cheap and cheerful colour inkjet for low volume printing

Weight: 6.82kg
Reasons to buy
+Smartphone support+Easy to install
Reasons to avoid
-A bit slow-Expensive for mono printing

We've come to expect simple setup and operation from Envy printers, and this one is no exception. It's quiet, packs in a lot of features and delivers excellent print quality, especially on photo paper. We particularly like the ability to use smartphones as well as computers, and to connect wirelessly without a router.

You won't get fancy features like wireless printing, duplexing or scanning, but if you don't need all the frills of an all-in-one printer, the HP DeskJet 1010 offers solid print performance and quality at an unbeatable price in a compact package.
