Epson Expression XP-400 Inkjet Multifunction Printer
Epson has been in business for over four decades, and it’s a household name when it comes to printers. Given that, it's not surprising that the Expression Home XP-400 is one of the best printers you can buy on a limited budget.
Epson's marketers got cute and creative with this one, calling it a "Small-in-One". However this isn't much of a stretch as this is a tiny printer. Within its minimal footprint, the XP-400 "Small-in-One" offers a 2400 dpi scanner, copier, and a printer that puts out 8.7 pages per minute (ppm) black and 4.5 ppm color.
The XP-400 comes with 802.11n WiFi, fully compatible with both Apple AirPrint and Google Cloud Print, but unfortunately doesn’t offer fax capabilities. It's entirely unfair to expect professional-quality prints from a budget-friendly machine, but the XP-400 does offer low-cost operation all around. Ink is cheap and readily available at any office store (or Amazon). For basic home use on a limited budget, this is quite simply the best.
