SMALL businesses and homes alike know the value of having the best printer scanners readily available.
Long gone are the days of bulky machines that would print out poor quality photos - the machines are now fast, quiet and some can even produce professional quality photographs.
Not only will these print and scan important documents, but many have features that will benefit everyone from small businesses and sole traders, to people using it at home.
For people sharing their printer scanners in an office, speed will be important. Also, those who deal internationally may want to send fax from the machine (yes, people still use that!).
Some people will be looking to save on costs with both ink and paper usage, so are on the hunt for efficient ones.
Whatever you want from great all-in-one printers, our guide will help you find one that suits your needs.

1. Best cheap printer scanner
Just because something is cheap doesn't mean you have to sacrifice on quality. The HP Envy 4527 is a great fit for home use and people who need to print high quality photos.
This machine works with Alexa and can accept documents from smartphones, tablets and computers. It can be controlled via a touch screen and produces border-less, high quality photos and documents. The printer will also automatically order new ink when you run low.
2. Best all-in-one printer for photos
What this printer lacks in speed it delivers in high quality photos. The Canon PIXMA TR8550 uses five single inks to create amazing photos, especially when used on good paper. It has an SD card slot for photographers, but most users can use the PIXMA Cloud to store and upload photos to it.
This can also be used for businesses, as it can scan, copy and fax multi-page documents, which can handle both paper and photos at once.
3. Best printer scanner for busy small offices
If you're working in a busy office, the main thing you want from a printer scanner is speed - something the Epson Workforce Pro delivers on. It has a 34ppm print speed and a 30ppm colour print speed, so even though it only has one tray people won't be waiting long for their documents or photos.
Workers can connect to the printer via WiFi, or directly, and prints/scans on two sides automatically.
4. Best printer scanners for home offices
Just because you're working from home doesn't mean you should sacrifice professionalism, and the Brother MFC-J6930DW is an all-in-one printer that delivers professional prints. The main draw is its low running cost, but it can also print fast and up to the size of a tabloid paper.
It also has the ability to scan, copy and fax, using its touchscreen interface, and has a 500-sheet capacity paper tray. Smartphones, tablets, laptops and desktops can connect to the printer via the cloud.
5. Best all-in-one printer for printing documents
The HP LaserJet Pro M28W is best for small businesses who need to print high quality documents fast. It's monochrome (not one for the photographers) but is able to print, scan and copy important documents.
It also saves energy thanks to an auto-on, auto-off function, so it is only on when you need to use it.
6. Best for medium sized businesses
If you need a model that will take a fair bit of use, the Brother MFC-L6800DW will be the one to go with. The all-in-one printer is durable and resilient, which is great when multiple people are going to be using it. It has a very fast print speed at 46ppm.
This printer scanner has 8000 page inbox toner and can be used with 12,000 page toner cartridges, making it efficient and deliver on value for money.
