Volume Should Be Key To New Printer Buyers
Individuals and businesses should consider the amount of printing and printer ink they expect to use on a daily basis before making a decision on which new model to buy, it has been suggested.
Melissa Riofrio has written for PC World five tips that should be followed when printer shopping to ensure that a suitable device is purchased.
Among the areas in which people may wish to break down their options are whether a colour or monochrome device is needed, an inkjet or laser printer and the amount of documents that will require printing on an average day.
Ms Riofrio stated on the pages of the news provider: "If you print just a dozen or so pages a day, a low-volume printer with a 100-sheet input tray.
"If you print 100 or more pages per day, your printer's minimum input capacity should be 250 or better, 500 sheets."
She added that a rule of thumb that should be followed is that those completing a vast number of prints each day will be best served searching for a device which utilises high-yield ink cartridges.
Sandy Berger recently suggested in a review of the Samsung ML-2525W laser printer for Hardware Secrets that money could be saved by purchasing high-yield ink cartridges.
