Editor's Notes

February 12, 2019:

Nowadays, there aren't many printers that won't work for both Windows and Mac, so the field of potential entries on this list was pretty large. Long duty cycles, good user interfaces, and the ability to do everything wirelessly were baselines for pretty much every offering. The Epson Workforce model is one of the most impressive, and it beat the company's excellent EcoTank models to the list simply because those are getting a little long in the tooth. Canon, of course, makes a good showing, with their TS8220 offering the most in terms of functionality and print quality at a pretty reasonable price.
