Smaller multifunction printers may seem best suited for home use. These new all-in-one models are packed with business-friendly features, including the ability to print from mobile devices.

Best for speedy printing
Canon imageCLASS MF4890dw

A good buy for a laser printer, the imageClass pumps out 26 pages per minute, or PPM, in black and white (sorry, no color). It has keys for quick scanning and copying and can scan multiple documents into one file. Our favorite feature: a dedicated Quiet Mode button that slows down printing and reduces noise. A free mobile app due out from Canon this fall will let you print files from an iPad or iPhone. Cost: $299

Best for secure e-printing
HP Photosmart 7520 e-All-in-One

The Photosmart can handle 14 PPM in black and white and 10 PPM in color. The ink-jet printer, which has a 4.3-inch touchscreen, lets you scan directly to email. You can also scan multiple documents into one file and print files from iPads, iPhones, and Android devices. For added security, you can use PINs to verify the identity of users printing via mobile devices. Cost: $199

Best for specialty jobs
Epson Expression Premium XP-800 small-in-one

This wireless ink-jet model, which has a 3.5-inch touchscreen control panel, prints 12 PPM in black and white and 11 PPM in color. It can print on a variety of specialty materials, including DVDs, and scan directly to email, a memory card, or PDF. You can print files from iPads, iPhones, and Android devices using Epson's mobile app. Cost: $279
