In addition to ensuring we were recommending up-to-date models, we also wanted to include a nice variety of options. With that in mind, we added the Selphy QX10, as it is one of the best portable instant printers, though its capabilities are slightly different than the Ivy Mobile, which is why we didn't eliminate the former, even though it is a bit older. We also added the Pixma TR150 as a portable option capable of full-sized printing jobs, though for truly on the go use, you will probably want to buy the optional battery pack. Those that need something capable of speedy, high-volume printing with a reasonable price per page will want to look to either the laser models, the ImageClass MF743Cdw and ImageClass MF445dw, or the Pixma G6020, which forgoes cartridges in favor of refillable reservoirs.

A lot of the turnover in a category like this is going to come from yearly updates that are more or less standard for the industry. With each of those years, however, some models aren't simply updated, they're replaced by new models offering some useful new features, and, occasionally, losing features that some users are liable to miss. The Selphy, for example, which was a small, semi-portable dye-sublimation printer, has functionally been replaced by the Ivy. The Ivy may be more portable and a better buy for the majority of young cell-phone-first photographers, but the Selphy offered a much higher quality of print and paper, as well as an ID layout option that made it possible for users to do things like take their own passport photos.
We also wanted to make sure there was a good balance between printers intended for business use and those intended for the home. A list like this should include both, but the simple fact that a business printer is going to be a bit faster and a bit more durable doesn't mean a good home printer isn't a better buy. That's why you'll see a good mix in our top spots between the two categories, as well as an emphasis on color laser over monochrome, as the latter proves less useful in a variety of scenarios.
