Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in a good way) about the stuff we buy (like pillows), but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed products (i.e., those with four-to-five-star reviews, and lots of ’em) and single out the most convincing. While we’ve written before about the best general printers, small-space printers, and other computer accessories like these expert-recommended ergonomic keyboards and mouses, here we’ve rounded up the best 3-in-1 printers (that is, scanner-printer-copiers) on Amazon, according to reviewers. (Note that reviews have been edited for length and clarity.)

Best cartridge-free all-in-one printer

Epson ET-3600 EcoTank Wireless Color All-in-One Supertank Printer

“Yes, this printer costs a little bit more than the average printer. I had an average Epson printer prior to this one and my only complaint with it was that I was constantly running out of ink, and it was expensive having to replace ink cartridges all the time! I figure what I spent for this printer, I will be able to save in the long run on ink. The print speed is lightning fast, it’s quiet, and it doesn’t shake itself off the shelf while it prints! LOVE this printer!”

Best portable all-in-one printer

HP OfficeJet 250 All-in-One Portable Printer with Wireless & Mobile Printing

“I’m a salesman on the road and was constantly busy printing out invoices for customers, until I came across this mobile printer. Now it’s much easier to print the invoice straight out of my vehicle/office connection wirelessly or with a cable that you have to purchase additionally. It works on battery and charges up within an hour. This is the best thing ever.”

Best all-in-one printers with mobile printing

Brother MFC-J475DW Compact Wireless Inkjet All-in-One with Duplex Printing

“I have had this printer for about eight months now and it works great. I use it a lot for scanning documents to PDF files and the images are very impressive. I love the feeder tray. I can load five or six pages in it and scan without having to constantly lift the cover and scan one page at a time. The ink really lasts. I have not had to replace any ink cartridges yet. The price on this printer is a fantastic deal. You should try it out!”

HP Envy 5535 e-All-in-One Printer

“I bought this to replace an older and more bulky work printer, and am I glad I did. When I opened the box it was easy to set up, turn on, and install ink. Once it was on, I just followed the steps to connect to my network, followed up with a test print, and right away I was able to print straight from my phone. The copy feature is great since I work from home and need to make copies frequently for records. This printer is also a scanner which has come in handy for creating PDFs when needed. The printer is so much smaller and lighter than my last one. So glad I switched over.”

Best all-in-one printer under $150

Brother Monochrome Compact Multifunction Printer DCPL2550DW

“Print what you want, whenever you want. This is my first laser printer. I bought this a just over a year ago and have gone through two reams of paper and I am still on the starter cartridge! Amazing! It scans great and copies great as well. I have no complaints as this is the best printer I’ve ever had. Very inexpensive for printing paper. The only thing I’ve had to give up is color printing, which I’ve realized I don’t actually need all that much. This is absolutely a great product that will save you money and hassles. I’m only upset that I didn’t switch to laser printers long ago instead of wasting all that time, money, and aggravation on inkjet printers.”

Best color duplex all-in-one printers

Canon Color ImageClass MF634CDW All-in-One Wireless Duplex Laser Printer

“This printer is a game changer for a small/home office. Sets up immediately, all computers on the LAN can find it, scanner works immediately, it prints double-sided on a single pass, and you don’t run out of toner in two seconds like with an inkjet. I am a techie and this is one of the best out-of-the-box experiences I have had. Also, it fits on top of a regular filing cabinet!”

HP Laserjet Pro M281FDW All in One Wireless Color Laser Printer

“My experience with this printer has been great. I’ve used all of its features over the last few months and they have all worked great for me. It always prints when I hit Print, and the scan-to-computer function has worked flawlessly for me. Since it’s a laser printer, it uses toner instead of ink and therefore, the ink won’t dry up on you after two weeks. I will say that this is not for printing photos. For regular productivity, like documents, charts, etc., it is a great machine.”

Best color duplex all-in-one printer under $200

Brother MFC-J5830DW All-in-One Color Inkjet Printer

“The printer itself is fantastic. I love the speed (much faster at everything than my old Epson), I love the sheer solidness of the printer’s build, I love the way it handles color photo printing, with very pleasing tones and a printing interface that gives me plenty of editing capability. I enjoy being able to draw paper from my choice of two different sources, and I like the fact that the rear feed tray can hold as much as 100 sheets of plain paper, which is in addition to the front tray holding 250 sheets. I use my printers extensively, printing color documents every day.”

Best black-and-white all-in-one printers

Brother MFCL2750DW Monochrome All-in-One Wireless Laser Printer

“I could nitpick over some things, but for $200, it can’t be beat. It’s a powerhouse with great time-saving features and a lot of configurability, and it fits right into a cloud-based, wireless mode of work. The best part about this printer, much to my surprise, is the internet connectivity. I can scan directly to Evernote, Google Drive, DropBox … darn near every major online service. Scanning is very solid and the print quality is good, with sharp text. An awesome ‘paperless office’ accessory.”

HP Laserjet Pro M426FDW Multifunction Wireless Laser Printer with Duplex Printing

“Very happy and impressed! Setup was quick and super easy. I set mine up on my wireless network, so only one cord required (the power cord). I’ve tried it with the upstairs and downstairs computers and our Android smartphones. I also printed from a USB flash drive and all worked flawlessly. I got tired of the usual inkjet printer problem of ink drying up, since we don’t use our printers all that often. Now when I need to print, I know it will work without having to mess with dried- or clogged-up inkjet nozzles. Well worth the money.”
