Printers creating the right image for the home

By Anne Mary Subscribe to RSS | January 14th 2012 | Views:

It is hard to imagine not having either a desktop or laptop computer in the home these days, they are just as much an accepted part of the household as the television and microwave oven. They are wonderful not only for research purposes, but also for creating documents, and storing photographs, and of course these type of things very often need printing off, so an equally important piece of equipment in the house is the home printer. The current range of machines are incredibly versatile, producing top quality material, be that letters, reports, labels, prints, etc., using cartridges that can even be re-manufactured, giving excellent value.

There are in effect, four main type of printers for use in the home or office, which are the inkjet, the photo, the laser, and an all-in-one version. The inkjet is easily the most popular, offering terrific variety and standard of work, at low cost. The photo printer is ideal for the digital camera enthusiasts who love to fill the computer with hundreds of snaps, the prints are usually outstanding and of lab quality. The laser printer has been designed chiefly for excessive business use, churning out huge numbers of documents on a daily basis, whilst the all-in-one printer, is all-encompassing, and pretty much does what it says on the tin.

There are several considerations to take into account when choosing a printer, such as speed, and the resolution capability, which will determine print quality. Compatibility with the PC is naturally crucial, so its important to check connections. The ink cartridges vary and do need replacing when they are empty, so there is a requirement to assess the amount of colour against black and white printing likely to take place. If the majority will be non-colour then it would be wise to get separate cartridges.

Most printers can cope with differing paper sizes, but another thing to think about when purchasing the printer is where exactly it will sit in the room. This is because printers deviate from front and rear loading, and consequently, its positioning will be governed by this. It would be frustrating to have to completely reshape an entire area of a room, simply to accommodate a small printer, when an alternative could have fitted perfectly. The modern printers now all have memory card slots, for direct printing from digital cameras, or mobile phones. Some of the printers even have a bluetooth facility enabling prints to be made direct from the phone, without the need for messy wires.

There are many choices from all the leading manufacturers, including: Brother, Canon, Epson, HP and Lexmark. Obviously, the more you pay, the more the machine will offer, so much will depend upon an individuals actual requirements. There would be little point buying a sophisticated model, which can undertake many functions, if the likelihood is that only a handful of copies would be required over a period of time. Conversely, if each day is likely to see vast usage, then it certainly would be worth spending that little extra to ensure the machine could cope. As with everything, it is all about personal preferences.
