Find the printer that’s right for you
There’s so much choice on the market that choosing any gadget can be difficult. With inkjet, wireless and laser variations available, printers are no exception to this. If you’re looking to invest in a new machine but are somewhat overwhelmed by the options out there, this handy guide will help you choose one that’s right for you.
The home printer
Whether you’re printing off homework, party invitations or even a few holiday snaps, you’ll need a multipurpose printer that’s up to the job.
An inkjet printer it likely to be your best option, as they are relatively cheap to buy and simple enough for the whole family to use. In fact, PC World is currently offering the Canon Pixma iP2702 for just £29.00.
In addition to the low buying cost, the ink cartridges are inexpensive too, so they are perfect for families who print a lot.
The office printer
When it comes to the office, you’ll need a more robust printer that can easily handle a large print load. Having a small inkjet device in the workplace may be purse-friendly but it won’t be the quickest option. In a bustling environment, this could lead to an extensive print-room queue.
Instead, business owners should select an efficient, multifunctioning printer like the Toshiba e-STUDIO755, available from United Carlton. Not only will this machine produce printouts quickly, it also boasts a scanning, copying and faxing facility, eliminating the need for additional devices.
The photo printer
While the inkjet printer may be suitable for printing a few snaps, if you’re serious about photography and want to showcase your shots in the best possible way, you’ll need to invest in a good-quality photo printer.
With wireless connectivity featuring on most modern cameras, the Canon SELPHY CP900 photo printer, available from Argos, is an ideal choice due to its speed and quality. Simply hook your camera, tablet, mobile or memory card to this compact device, and enjoy crystal-clear prints in under a minute.
