After testing a lot of products, we have selected the 8 best all-in-one photo printers for 2019 which are mentioned below. In our experiments, we have found these products most consistent in performance and true value for the money.
HP OfficeJet 4650 Wireless All-in-One
The key advantages for the Brother printer, and what keeps it firmly in place as our top pick, is that it offers better text quality than the 4650 and much faster speed for business applications. However, the 4650 offers some advantages as well, including Wi-Fi Direct, which the Brother printer lacks.
The 4650 can print and fax from,… as well as scan to, a computer, and it can also work as a standalone copier and fax machine. The 100-sheet capacity for the single input tray is one of the key factors that makes it suitable only for light-duty office use. As with almost any inkjet, you can use it in the dual role of home and home-office printer, but note that with only one paper tray, if you want to switch between printing on plain paper and photo paper, you’ll have to swap the paper every time you switch.
Paper handling for scanning is a little more flexible. The 35-sheet ADF can handle up to legal-size pages, and you can use the letter-size flatbed for originals, like books or magazines, that won’t fit through the feeder. You can print on legal-size paper as well, which means you can copy legal-size originals at full size, and menu options on the 2.2-inch front-panel touch screen also let you scale legal-size pages down, turning them into letter-size copies.
Canon TS9020 Wireless Printer With Scanner & Copier
Canon TS9020 test unit is two-tone, red on top and in the back, and black on the front and sides; it also comes in a white-and-black version. It measures a petite 5.6 by 14.7 by 12.8 inches (HWD) and weighs 14.7 pounds. The front panel, which you can tilt upward for easy access, includes a 5-inch color touch screen that makes it easy to navigate the menus.
It can connect to a network via Ethernet or Wi-Fi,… or directly to a computer via USB. It also supports near-field communications (NFC) direct printing from a compatible Android device. One area in which the TS9020 did prove a speedster is photo printing. It averaged just 20 seconds per 4-by-6 print, using photo printing and high quality settings.
The TS9020 uses six ink tanks, which include both dye- and pigment-based black inks (which should help in photo and text printing, respectively) and gray in addition to the usual cyan, magenta, and yellow. Text should be good enough for any business use, even those requiring small fonts. With graphics, some backgrounds showed mild banding (a regular pattern of faint striations).

Canon TS9120 Wireless All-In-One Printer
The TS9120 measures 5.6 by 14.7 by 12.8 inches (HWD), and it weighs 14.7 pounds, making it the same size and weight as the Canon TS9020, as well as the Canon TS8120. The four-ink HP Envy Photo 7855 All-in-One, with its 35-page ADF, is a few inches bigger in all directions and weighs a little over 3 pounds more than the TS9120, as does Canon’s own Pixma TR8520 Home Office Wireless All-in-One (another top pick), which has a 20-sheet ADF.
As for paper handling,… the TS9120 comes with two input trays, one up front and one that extends out and up from the back of the chassis. Both drawers hold up to 100 sheets of plain paper or 20 sheets of premium photo paper in the rear tray. The HP 7855 holds up to 125 sheets of paper and 15 sheets of photo paper simultaneously.
Canon TS-series Pixmas are designed for home-based office and family use, and therefore should be foolproof to install. Like all the other Pixma models I’ve set up, this one was a snap. After you plug it in and turn it on, well-designed animated demonstrations show you how to load the six ink cartridges and the paper trays, and how to connect the AIO to your wired or wireless network.
Brother Printer MFC-J680DW Wireless Color
The Brother Work Smart MFC-J680DW is a jack of all trades among home and office printers, combining better-than-average print quality with a fairly full feature set. It may not be the best home all-in-one printer in every dimension, but it’s a capable printer that has a lot to offer.
Unlike the top performers,… like the HP Officejet Pro, which averages more than 15 pages per minute (ppm), the Brother Work Smart was a little slow, humming steadily along at 10 pages per minute for both black-and-white and color documents. That may not be a big issue if you only print a few pages at a time, but if speed is a priority, you might want to look at a faster printer.
While the printer did just fine with documents, photo printing suffered because the machine slightly damaged the photo paper. A few of our test prints had crimping damage along the leading edge of the paper, and that’s reason enough not to recommend it for photo printing.
Epson Expression Home XP-440 Wireless Color Photo Printer
As is typical of budget home all-in-ones, the XP-440 prints, copies, and scans, but doesn’t fax. The XP-440 lacks an automatic document feeder (ADF) for scanning or copying multipage documents unattended, another feature frequently left off of budget home machines. The flatbed scanner can scan or copy at up to letter size. A memory-card reader accepts cards in the SD family.
The XP-440 can connect to a computer… via USB (but not Ethernet), to a network by 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, or make a direct peer-to-peer connection with a compatible device via Wi-Fi Direct. It is Apple AirPrint compatible, Mopria-certified for easy printing to Android devices, and supports Google Cloud Print. It also supports the suite of Epson Connect software solutions including Email Print, Epson Creative Print, Epson iPrint, Epson Remote Print, and Epson Scan to Cloud. I tested it over a USB connection with the driver installed on a PC running Windows 10 Professional.
Graphics quality was above par for an inkjet, good enough for business use up to and including PowerPoint handouts, even ones going to important clients. Many backgrounds showed mild banding, a regular pattern of faint striations, but not to the level where anyone but an acute perfectionist (or reviewer) is likely to notice.
Canon TS6120 Wireless All-In-One Printer
If you are looking for a unit to handle the everyday needs of your home, the PIXMA TS6120 Wireless All-in-One Inkjet Printer from Canon will be able to help you out, especially since it now supports Bluetooth 4.0 LE for a direct connection to your various smart devices. Sporting a sleek design and black coloration, as well as advanced print technology, the wireless TS6120 is available for printing, scanning, and copying tasks.
Along with this,… users can work quickly thanks to print speeds of 15 ipm in black and 10 ipm in color for producing your homework, shopping lists, or photos. Also, it features both front and rear paper feeding options that can work with media up to 8.5 x 14″ in size and can perform auto duplex printing. Scanning and copying is possible due to the inclusion of an 8.5 x 11.7″ flatbed with an optical resolution of 1200 x 2400 dpi. This provides detailed scans of your originals.
The TS6120 is a very connected unit, featuring built-in Bluetooth 4.0 LE, allowing users to efficiently connect directly a mobile device. Also, Wi-Fi enhances connectivity and provides support for numerous other features, including the Canon PRINT app, Apple AirPrint, and more. A 3″ touchscreen LCD is present as well, providing an intuitive method for adjusting and viewing settings.
