Cyber Monday printer deals: Our predictions

When will the best Cyber Monday printer deals start in 2021?

Cyber Monday is one of the biggest days of the year for online retail. With so much at stake and so many retailers competing for your cash, that means you’ll find some incredible savings when you boot up your browser (opens in new tab) in a few days on November 29.

Don’t assume that the best deals can only be found on Cyber Monday, though. We’ve been watching the online retail market for years, and we’ve been able to observe some key trends. 

We’ve noticed that the best deals tend to fall on Thanksgiving week itself, but that retailers actually start applying big discounts from the end of October and then right through the entire period. That's been the case this year.

If you want a top printer deal, then it’s worth paying attention to Cyber Monday and Black Friday, but don’t forget about Black Friday and the surrounding months - you’ll find discounts everywhere.

What kind of printer should I buy on Cyber Monday?

The printer market is more complex than you'd expect, but there are some good rules of to follow while researching what printer you might want to buy on Cyber Monday.

The two kinds of printers that make up nearly all of the market are inkjet and laser. 

The best inkjet printers are great all-around options. They produce good-quality prints and are usually smaller, so perfect for family and home office use - and even more perfect for working from home. On the other hand, they tend to be slower to print than laser printers and the ink cartridges can get very expensive in the long run.

The best laser printers definitely have an advantage when it comes to speed, so they make perfect best office printers, especially because they can run off large, multipage documents relatively quickly. Unfortunately, they are not great for photos and they are usually larger and louder than inkjet printers. but they’re not great with photos, and they’re larger and louder than inkjets.

You also have other options, like whether you just need a basic printer or you need the best all-in-one printer for scanning and photocopying as well. 

If you’d like to print high-quality photos, printers that create the levels of detail expected from a great photo are available, but can be costly to buy and maintain over the long term. And also think about running costs - it’s no good buying a cheap printer if you’re going to have to take out a loan every time you need some more ink, so factor in the cost of ink/toner into your budget.

5 tips for buying a printer on Cyber Monday

There are some things to think about before looking for Cyber Monday printer deals that will save you a lot of money and frustration down the road.

The most important thing to know is that buying the right printer for you is about much more than the price of the machine itself, since a poorly planned purchase will turn a great deal into a home office paperweight in no time.

The printer market isn't as complex as it looks, though, and we'll help steer you toward the right deal so you get the best printer for your need and budget.

1. Know what you want before Cyber Monday
Take the time now to look into the kind of printer you want or need, what your budget will be for the next several weeks, and know how each kind of printer will work for your needs.

Once you know the type of printer you need, research your options in and just above your price range – early sales and Cyber Monday printer deals could drop many of these into your budget, after all.

2. Resist the impulse purchase
Just because a printer is 95% off doesn't make it a great deal if it doesn't do what you need it to do. Look to your needs first, not the price a printer is being offered for.

3. Done be afraid to make a return, if necessary
Sometimes, you can do all the research in the world, but you won't ever know when a printer is the right one for you until you actually try it out for yourself. If it turns out not to be the right one for you, you can almost always return it for a refund (subject to retailers' return policies, of course).

4. Consider all the costs of the printer
No matter the printer, it will cost you money to continue to use it, mostly in the form of printer ink, but possibly other parts as well. Make sure you factor these into your purchase.

5. Check in with TechRadar regularly for the best Cyber Monday printer deals
Here at TechRadar, we're going to have a crack team of dedicated experts sorting through the flood of Cyber Monday deals to find the best ones we feel are worth the investment and which ones you need to skip. We see plenty of terrible products going on sale this time of year that aren't even worth the sale price, and we'll make sure to let you know which Cyber Monday printer deals you need to avoid.

3 Cyber Monday printer deals to keep an eye on

We picked the laser, inkjet, and all-in-one printer we'd most like to see discounted this Cyber Monday so you know which ones we'll be keeping our eye on.

The Cyber Monday laser printer deal we want to see most

A Xerox VersaLink B600DN printer against a pure white background

(opens in new tab)

1. Xerox VersaLink B600DN

Turbo-charged printer for heavy print loads

Category: mono laser printer | Print speed: 55ppm | Paper sizes: up to A4 | Paper capacity: 550 | Weight: 22.3kg

Record breaking speed  
High paper capacity 
Wi-Fi is extra

The Xerox VersaLink B600DN is just about everything you could ask for in a monochrome laser printer, from nearly one page a second printing to its large paper capacity, the VersaLink B600DN is a laser printer's laser printer. The problem is that it costs a small fortune.

And while the initial cost for a monochrome print-only device like this seems pretty high, this is a seriously premium machine that is actually very practical to run with a lower long term cost per print and its consistent print quality justifies the price tag, in our mind, especially if you're in a business that needs to print a lot of black and white paperwork. We'd really just like to see it come down a good bit in price.

The inkjet printer deal to look for this Cyber Monday

A Canon Pixma printer against a pure white background

Canon Pixma G6050

Refillable tanks makes this costly inkjet a bargain

Category: 3-in-1 colour inkjet printer | Print speed: 13ppm (mono) | Paper sizes: A4 | Paper capacity: 250 | Weight: 8.1kg

Cheap to run 
Neat ink tank system  
Small display      
No front USB     

Inkjet printers aren't the fastest print game in town, and the Canon Pixma G6050 definitely takes its time to print a page, with an average of just 13 pages per minute or just a little over 4 seconds per page. 

The key is that when it finally does finish up that print job, the quality is some of the best we've seen. Canon’s cartridge-free printers are particularly easy to top up whenever you see the ink in the window getting low and they come with plenty more ink in the box, enough to print 7,700 full colour images, or 18,000 in black and white.

Add to this an excellent 250 sheet paper capacity and you go a long way toward justifying its price. If we can get a Black Friday printer deal on this one, we'd very easily recommend it for creatives, students, and other non-enterprise users.

The Cyber Monday all-in-one printer deal we most want to see

A Brother MFC printer against a pure white background

Brother MFC-J5330DW (opens in new tab)

An all-in-one with added A3 capability

Category: 4-in-1 colour inkjet printer | Print speed: 22ppm | Paper sizes: up to A3 | Paper capacity: 300 | Weight: 16.9kg

Vivid colour prints 
Compact A3 printing
More costly than laser 
A4-size scanner

A great All-In-One printer has a rep for being the Jack-of-all-trades of home office machines, and that assessment isn't wrong, but the truly best don't succumb to the master-of-none downside that comes with versatility.

The Brother MFC-J5330DW is a color inkjet printer that produces high quality photos with truly accurate color, a relatively fast 22 PPM (mono) and 20 PPM (color) printing rate, though your performance may vary with the nature of your print. It is able to print A3 size paper as well, making it well suited for special projects and poster printing.

It's somewhat pricey at retail, especially since you're locked into having to buy expensive color inks throughout its effective life, so if this all-in-one printer gets a big enough price cut this Black Friday, we definitely suggest you give this one a long look.
