As much as our lives are immersed in digital documentation, there are still times when we need to print something, whether it's a document, an application, or a photo. Especially in busy office spaces, a quality printer is a must. When you need to revert to paper documentation, these are the all-around best printers for Mac.
No ink cartridges
This printer comes with some impressive features, including a color display, wired and wireless networking, and voice-activated printing for Alexa, Siri, and Google Assistant. Epson handles ink differently, as it does away with ink cartridges and uses low-cost replacement ink bottles. The ink is also high yield which means one replacement can support thousands of pages worth of prints.
Small but mighty
If you want to print a lot of pages fast, but don't have the desk landscape for an oversized printer, Brother's HLL2395DW is the model for you. It prints 36 pages per minute in black-and-white and has a 2.7-inch color touchscreen menu panel, but the base only takes up about as much space as a pad of legal paper. It also features a copier, scanner, and can hold up to 250 sheets of paper at a time.
If you've got a lot of people in your household (or office) that need to print a lot, the Maxify will ease your paper-replacing burden with a two-tray setup. You can fit up to 500 sheets at once, so you don't have to refill as often. It also features fast printing times, and can support up to 9 individual users.
Everything you need in one package
For actual office productivity, you'll want to go pro with something that can print multiple sizes of paper directly from the glass screen, as well as from mobile devices. The Business Smart Pro also supports faxing for you old-timers. It also features a 500-page paper tray, 2-sided copying and scanning, and prints in monochrome or color.
Bright, bold, beautiful colors
For full-color printing, Canon's Pixma is what you want. It's got a six-color individual ink system for the best quality full-color printing you can get for your home. It also supports wireless printing, photo printing, and external SD Card storage support.
Our best choice goes to the Epson EcoTank ET-3710 because of its great versatility. Not only do you get a serviceable printer, but you also get one that is efficient with how it handles ink with its unique replacement system. They don't use ink cartridges. Instead, they use low-cost replacement bottles that are easily refillable – this is a huge convenience.
