Affordable home printing solutions have never been in greater demand, as individuals realize that the cost of most printing necessities is far less for most tasks than the cost of professional printing services. In the past, virtually everyone had to use a print job as printing technology was insanely expensive and out of reach for the average person. These days, however, not only can printing be done from the home or office quite effectively, but new technologies like wireless printing are now making it possible to print from anywhere in the world. Below, we will review four Airprint-enabled printers that each cost less than $100 – making them perfect solutions for home or small business use.
Epson Expression Home XP-400
Currently available for around $70, the Epson Expression Home XP-400 is an all-in-one solution for home and small business printing needs. Owners of the device will be able to print, scan and copy documents, photos and more with little to no hassle. Memory card slots are featured on the unit, which allow for easy printing without an attached computer. The Airprint technology – in combination with Google Cloud Print – allows users to print any document from a smartphone, tablet or other portable device from anywhere in the world. A color LCD screen and control panel also allows users to preview any documents or photos before they are printed, and alter any necessary settings.
HP Deskjet 3510 e
The HP Deskjet 3510 e is currently on sale via the HP website for $60, and is a reliable yet inexpensive solution for printing around the house. Compatible with two different types of wireless printing – HP ePrint and Apple Airprint – users will be able to execute any printing job, no matter where they may be at the moment. Scanning and copying functions are also included, which makes document sharing and creation easier than with standard printers. This Energy Star-compliant product prints up to 9 pages per minute and its quality settings can be altered via the included control panel.
Canon Pixma MX452
Available for $80, the Canon Pixma MX452 all-in-one printer is a great solution for any office where constant printing services are in need. Wi-Fi and AirPrint technologies are included in its design to allow users to print from anywhere, while the proprietary FINE cartridge system conserves ink and maximizes printing efficiency. The included document feeder can hold up to 30 pages of content for quick, hands-free scanning. With custom quality options, you can also alter the DPI and ensure that original document quality is not diminished during the printing process.
HP OfficeJet 4620
The HP OfficeJet 4620 is an all-in-one wireless printing solution that can currently be purchased for just under $100. Users will be able to print up to eight pages per minute in black and white, and the unit offers the ability to fax in addition to print, scan and copy functions. With a document feeder that holds up to 35 pages, most copy and fax jobs can be handled in one sitting without the need to reload the feeder. With a 600 x 600 dpi color resolution, users can ensure that even the most detailed photos are printed with clarity and in their original form.
