How To Buy A Printer

Because printers have progressed a lot lately and they are now more practical than ever, you need a few secrets about how to choose the best printer:

-Pay special attention to consumables: ordinary consumables last just for few pages despite most manufacturers would like to assure you that you can print hundreds of pages per cartridge.

-Avoid printers using consumables with the print head “built in” the cartridge: these are usually the cheaper, entry price printers. Although theoretically you find CISS systems for them, the CISS will not work properly, over the long term.

-HP, Canon or Epson? All of them are good because you can use CISS: CISS HP, CISS Canon, CISS Epson.

-Printer vs. Multifunction device? If the price is OK, go for a multifunction device.

-Inkjet or laser? Inkjet: it is more flexible, you can print color and black and white, on plain paper and photo paper.

-If you are passionate about photography and very demanding with the quality of print-outs you will probably be please with a “Photo” printer. Unlike the ‘normal’ printers, the “Photo” printer composes images using multiple colors (5, 6 or 8 instead of 4 for normal equipment). It can also print text documents as well as photos or graphics. Also important to mention is that usually Photo printers are able to print on printable CDs / DVDs (usually found in any hypermarket). Specifically, we recommend few models able to print beautiful photos and also very fast: Epson Stylus Photo P50 / Canon Pixma iP4850 / 4950 (printers) and Canon MG5250 / Epson PX720/820 (multifunction).
