Best InkJet Printer under Rs 5000

If you’re on a low budget and you want a printer for home use, then inkjet printers are highly recommended for several reasons. These printers are extremely affordable and provide excellent value for money. For a price of less than Rs 5000, you get an option to print, scan and copy. You can also take colour printouts.

When it comes to popular and reliable printer brands, we recommend HP or Canon in this price range. The HP printer is a little costlier and doesn’t come with wireless printing, but its cartridges cost less. In other words, printing on the HP printer is cheaper.
