HP has been manufacturing these for decades and is known for making reliable and innovative hardware. We promise you are unlikely to ever want to take a baseball bat to any of these recommendations.

Editor's Notes

January 04, 2021:

Laserjet printers like those on this list generally offer cheaper printing than inkjet options. The tradeoff is that they aren't as good at printing photographs or anything else that requires a lot of vivid graphics. To truly realize the cost savings though, you'll want to turn to a cartridge-free model like the Neverstop All-in-One 1202w. However, those who need something for offices that do a lot of high-volume printing will want to look to an enterprise model, such as the Enterprise M611x and Enterprise M507n. The former can print up to 65 pages per minute, and the latter up to 52. The downside to both of these enterprise options is that they are monochromatic, so you can only print in black and white. If you need the ability to produce full-color prints, you should consider the Pro M479fdw, Pro M255dw, or Pro M283fdw.

March 15, 2019:

One of the biggest factors in determining what printer to purchase is your print volume need. In other words, how much work you'll be assigning to your printer in a month. If you have multiple users who will be printing throughout the workday, say in a large office setting, you want a piece of equipment that can handle that type of output efficiently and with as little finagling as possible. Selections such as the Enterprise M605N and the Enterprise M553DN have large paper trays and break-neck speeds of 40 pages per minute or higher for black-and-white documents. This avoids Disneyland-level lines from snaking across departments.

On the contrary, if you're looking to print the occasional article or homework assignment from your desktop at home, models like the Pro M29W or the Pro M180NW will do just fine. If you're a Goldilocks-consumer and want something a bit more feature-rich, look no further than our top pick, the Pro M477FDW, which perfectly suits someone whose needs lie right in the middle.
