How To Select A Printer To Best Satisfy Your Requirements

By Jared Xafer

As you’re buying a printer, there are several particulars to consider and many decisions to make. First of all, what do you want the printer for?

Do you want it only to print black and white documents? If so you might want to consider a monochrome laser printer. Do you wish it to be suitable to print colored documents and colored photos? Is this a printer that you utilize for a large amount of printing just like a print shop? Do you desire a laser printer or an inkjet printer? Do you want a printer that is also a fax machine and a scanner?

A few individuals don’t like the concept of an all-in-one printer for the reason that if something goes wrong with one part, the additional parts won’t perform either. Then there are numerous manufacturers of printers, including Hewlett Packard, Kodak, Dell and Canon, just to cite a few.

Unlike even the best monochrome laser printer most inkjet printers these days hold two different ink cartridges, one for color and one for black ink. A few printers will hold three different color cartridges — red, yellow, and blue. Then the colors mix when the document is printed. This can be extra economical as far as purchasing the cartridges. If one cartridge is empty, you must only fill the color that is empty.

In addition some printers can have either a regular size ink cartridge, a “large” cartridge, or either. In buying a printer, you also want to know if it is compatible with the operating system of your computer. Is your computer an Apple or a windows operated computer? Those are the most in demand, but there are others. If you have a new computer, most new printers will be compatible. But it is a good idea to be sure. Is there a warranty with the computer? Most of them do have a one-year minimal warranty these days. Do you want to buy an extended warranty? This is certainly a great strategy if your printer is going to be put to use like a printing machine.

These are just a few factors to think about any time you are purchasing a printer. When buying a printer, there are many facts to consider and several decisions to make.

The author enjoys writing articles on many topics including about how to purchase the best laser printer.
