Best Back to School Printers 2015

With the new school year around the corner and school supplies lining the shelves of your local stores, it’s easy to forget that you’ll need a printer. This printer is going to be your lifeline when you’ve slaved away, pulling an all-nighter to get that essay done and need it printed so you can submit it in the next 10 minutes.

Your back to school printer should be compact enough to fit on your desk amidst your textbooks and empty Doritos bags and be easy enough to operate after you’ve spent the night cramming.

Here are a few great options for inexpensive printers that’ll ensure your assignments are printed and ‘A’ grade ready:

HP Deskjet 1010

The HP DeskJet 1010 is your go to choice if all you need is an expensive printer to spit out black and white text based documents. It’s easy to move around your workspace, weighing in at less than 5 lbs and will print out your doc in 17 seconds.

Canon Pixma MG7520

For those looking for a fancier option and have a greater budget to spare, the Canon Pixma MG7520 is fabulous for producing black and whites and color images. If you’re a photography student, you’ll appreciate the 9,600 x 2,400 dpi prints that this model produces and everyone will appreciate its compact 17 inch wide size. This all-in-one printer lets you scan, copy and of course print, so the extra coin is worth it if you require these additional functions.

HP DeskJet 2540

This all-in-one wireless printer is an inexpensive option with a compact design that’s easy to set up and good for the none-techie types. The set up is done via a USB cable so you’re not stumbling through a bunch of wireless prompts. Though the resolution of printed photos is not as great as the aforementioned printer, it does print in color. And because it’s an all in one, you again have scan and copy functionality too.
