Wireless printers are easy to install, can print from multiple devices, and lack the mess of jumbled cords other non-wireless printers have. You need two things for a wireless printer to work; a WiFi connection, and a power source.
When deciding what type of wireless printer to buy, you need to think about the different wireless options that are available: WiFi, Bluetooth and NFC. Finding the right printer depends on how you’ll typically use it: whether you’re using the printer to print from multiple phones and tablets; using it at home with a few laptops or computers connected to it; or going to have several people printing to this printer from an array of devices. Consider what you need your printer for, then see our picks below to help you decide which wireless printer best suits your printing needs.
