These are the best cheap printer deals for December 2020

If you have check printers lately, you’ll be pleasantly surprised that printers have improved and prices dropped drastically in recent years. Today’s inkjet and laser printers feature Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity for seamless wireless printing from a laptop or mobile device. Newer models also have greatly enhanced output quality, putting them light years ahead of clunky, noisy, unreliable printers that we’ve all had to struggle with at some point or another.

Printers aren’t cheap throwaway purchases, though, so a discount is always a good thing. Since you probably plan to keep your printer for at least a few years, it’s worth the effort to find a good one. Let us help you out: We’ve collected a large handful of the best cheap printer deals available right now on all-in-one inkjets and laser printers (including color laser printers) that cover just about any need and budget, along with a list of some of our favorite models to keep an eye out for. One reality during 2020 is a resurgence in demand for printers with so many people working from home. The printer market is busier than in recent years, which means you may need to look around a bit to find a specific model.

Best all-in-one printer: HP OfficeJet Pro 9015

HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 - best printer deals

HP makes a lot of printers, and sorting through the company’s catalog of printers alone can take some time. Let us save you some time by taking you right to the best one: The HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 is our favorite all-in-one printer, copier, and scanner for most uses. It’s fast, it offers great printing, and it’s wireless, so you can print from network-connected devices via Wi-Fi or Apple AirPrint.

HP OfficeJet Pro 9015 is easy to use and configure, too, thanks to its color touchscreen. The only drawback that’s worth noting is that, while it’s smaller than previous models, this printer still a bit bulkier than most inkjet all-in-ones. Nonetheless, if you’re looking for a premium do-it-all printer for the home or a small office (and you’re willing to pay a little extra for it), the OfficeJet Pro 9015 is the one.

Best budget printer: Canon Pixma MG6320

Canon Pixma MG3620 - best printer deals

If the OfficeJet Pro 9015 was a little rich for your blood (let’s face it, not all of us are willing to spend more than $50 on a simple printer), then Canon has you covered with its budget-friendly Pixma MG6320. This all-in-one inkjet can print, copy, and scan, and it’s wireless, so you can easily print from your connected computer or mobile device right on your home network as well as via apps like Apple AirPrint and Google Cloud Print — no wired hookups required.

Naturally, a printer this cheap isn’t going to give you gallery-quality results or professional-grade volume output, but that’s not the point. For the price, it’s hard to look a gift horse like the Canon Pixma MG6320 in the mouth if your printing needs are basic.

Best laser printer: Brother HL-3170CDW

Brother HL-3170CDW color laser printer - best printer deals

Laser printers are purpose-built for offices and other professional settings, cutting through high-volume tasks that a traditional inkjet printer would struggle with. These printers used to be primarily monochrome (made for school and business environments where a lot of black-and-white printing happens), but color laser printers are no longer rare and are even quite affordable.

You’ll still pay more for one, though, but models like the Brother HL-3170CDW — which happens to be our top recommendation for most people — punch above their weight when it comes to price. It’s simple, sleek, and considerably less bulky than many laser printers, and can crank out 23 pages per minute from its 250-sheet feed tray. You can pay four figures for a “professional” color laser printer if you want to, but for around $400, you’d be hard-pressed to do much better than the Brother HL-3170CDW.

Best small business printer: Canon Maxify MB5420

Canon Maxify MB5420 review
Les Shu/Digital Trends

Printers see the heaviest use in offices, whether it’s a small home office or a large business, and for that, your standard consumer-grade all-in-one printer probably won’t cut it. You don’t have to spend a fortune on a good office-grade printer, though, and the Canon Maxify MB5420 does plenty of heavy lifting at a price that won’t make you wince.

It’s surprisingly compact for its output capacity (more so than many other office printers, anyway), holding 500 sheets of paper while boasting a snappy monochrome print rate of 22 pages per minute and a color print rate of 10ppm. And like any good modern printer, it can also copy and scan, and can even do faxes if you’re still into that sort of thing. Not bad for less than $300 at its normal price — and even better if you can find a printer deal.
