Printers that use low cost ink for 2023

We use several criteria when deciding to add new printers to this page:

  • The printer has reasonably priced compatible or remanufactured ink or toner
  • The printer does not try to block the non-OEM ink or toner. On some printers, you need to disable the firmware update setting to prevent the blocking (especially the Epson and HP models below).

Most of these printers can still be purchased in 2023. Just in case some of them are already discontinued, we will keep updating this page with new models.

    Can you give a recommendation for a printer that will work from Bluetooth mobile with reasonable ink?
    I only use it maybe 15 times per week in a hone office.
    Thanks much.

      Hi Ron. For this light usage, I would look at the Brother inkjet printers above. They will allow you to print color, and most of them have WiFi to print from your mobile phone. If your goal is to print from your phone, you want to make sure the model you select has WiFi. These units will save you a fortune on cartridges over the long run.
