With more and more folks working remotely these days, many would argue the importance of making your home as productive as possible. For some, a printer plays a large role in that.

Whether you heavily rely on printed pages or only occasionally have the need for physical documents, the new HP printers offer several features and services that should level up the overall experience. From simpler setup to affordable ink and toner subscription options, HP continues to plow ahead in a space that is too often overlooked.
