Printers can often found at bargain basement prices, but if you have a home office, you should take a moment to consider your options before rushing out to buy a cheap model at random.

Whether you’re looking for a high-quality photo printer, or an all-in-one unit that can scan and fax documents, HP has a range of printers that can cater to your needs. To help you pick the best one for you, we’re looking at a selection of the best HP printers for 2020.

OfficeJet 5255 All-in-One Printer


Price: $139.99
Notable for: Versatile printer fax capabilities

Even if you only need a home printer for casual use, it’s worth investing just a little extra for a unit that will deliver a broad list of features and consistent performance.

The HP OfficeJet 5255 All-in-One Printer offers print, copy, scan, fax and photo printing capabilities in a single use for $139.99 (on sale for $79.99 at the time of writing). It also connects to your home Wi-Fi for wireless printing. And using the HP Smart app, you’re able to wirelessly print from social media or cloud storage. You can also easily order new replacement ink with the app.

Two-sided printing is supported, and with a print speed of up to 10 ppm (pages per minute) for black text documents, it runs at a decent rate when given larger jobs.

ENVY 5055 All-in-One Printer


Price: $129.99
Notable for: Cost-effective home office printer

The HP ENVY 5055 All-in-One printer is much like the OfficeJet 5255 All-in-One Printer, but cuts out the fax machine for those who either already have fax capabilities or never intend to use them.

With the fax component gone, you not only save space, but also a little money. The ENVY 5055 is around $10 cheaper than the OfficeJet during normal pricing at $129.99.

Despite its slightly more compact size, the ENVY 5055 delivers the same print and picture quality as its Officejet counterpart, the same wireless features and the same print speed performance.
