Three tips when buying printers

There are two different technologies when it comes to printers and they are suitable for different printing needs.

  • Inkjet printers – Modern inkjet printers are great for printing many different types of print, such as photo prints, text documents, etc., but not for printing large amounts of documents on a regular basis. They have a good balance between high quality printing of photographs and quick text documents.
  • Laser printers – These are best suited for printing a lot in black and white. In addition to the fact that they are often faster, this printer's method of printing means it can print more volume at a cheaper price per page before you need to change the cartridge.

Many printers come with a built-in scanner, sometimes referred to as multifunction printers. That’s convenient to have if you scan documents frequently, and it’s both cheaper and takes up less space than having a separate scanner. But if you scan very rarely, your mobile phone might be sufficient.

Printers are a little infamous for being difficult and having connection issues. You can easily avoid this by checking what kind of connections the printer is compatible with. For example, a USB connection is useful if you need to print from USB sticks or external hard drives. Wi-Fi connectivity is now common and offers a convenient wireless solution. If you want that little bit extra, you can check out Wi-Fi Direct, which allows you to connect the printer directly to wireless devices such as your phone for fast printing.
