Best AllInOne Printer Under $100

For you, the best all-in-one printer under $100.00 varies according to your specific needs and preferences. For example, do you need a printer that has fax capability? Do you have any print-speed or resolution requirements? Do you need a wireless printer? All-in-one printers are also called multifunction printers.

If a new printer costs less than $100.00, it is an inkjet printer. Although less expensive than a laser printer, an inkjet printer requires more maintenance. For more information, see PCMAG.COM: Caring for Your Inkjet.

As you can see at your local electronics store, or online (for example, TigerDirect.com), many good all-in-one printers are available at $100.00 or less (retail, pre-tax). For example, the following all-in-one printers have received good vendor and customer reviews:
