What kind of printer should you purchase?
Published: January 23, 2009

There are many brands of printers available. Each brand might have many printers that fit your price range.  So how do you decide what to purchase?

With so many brands and printer types available, it can be a major chore just to decide on where to start.

Lets see if we can help you to make a short list and have a jump off point.

First you need to decide what kind of printer you require. If you are thinking of using a printer for business and are printing multiple pages then a laser printer is what you should be looking for. Laser printers use a fine powder ink called toner. A toner cartridge will last much longer than an Ink jet cartridge. A laser printer also prints much faster than an inkjet. Laser printers are available in both black and white printing and color printing.

If you purchase a color laser be prepared to pay $100 to replace each color. If you are looking to print photo quality images then you should be looking at an Inkjet type printer.

Most new inkjet printers use four or six colour printing. That is black plus three colours or black plus five colours. Most photo quality printers have six colour printing. Ink should cost about $15-$17 per colour for non generic ink.

Finally the type of paper you use makes a big difference in the quality of your print.
If you are printing photo's purchase good quality photo paper.

Epson and Canon make very good photo quality inkjet printers.
