Some of the most popular brands of all-in-one printers include Lexmark, Epson, HP and Canon, as of 2015. All of the listed brands offer a variety of models that encompass the functionality of printers, scanners, copiers and fax machines in one product.
Some Lexmark all-in-one printers, such as the Pro 905 and S605 models, feature a touchscreen and various widgets that allow users to customize the control panel of the printer. The downside of these models is that they don’t have hard buttons that could be used as an alternative in case the touchscreen malfunctions. The Epson WorkForce 310 and WorkForce 610 models stand out from other all-in-printers by offering multiple connection options, an automatic document feeder and up to five separate ink cartridges.
The store section of the HP website lists more than 20 different models, the prices of which range between $99.99 and $3599.99. Epson offers all-in-one printer models featuring a wide format and those intended for small offices and workgroups. For some models, such as WF-2650 and WF-7150, Epson offers discounts of up to 40 percent.
Factors that determine the overall rating and efficiency of different all-in-one printers include their print speed, monthly duty cycle and the ability to print in color. As far as the scanning and copying functionality goes, all-in-one printers are rated according to their optimal scanning resolution, ADF tray capacity and copy speed.
