Many people require a colour printer either for home or office use. It is not easy to decide which colour printer to buy though as there are a wide variety of options. Here are a few things to do before you buy a colour printer:
Do your research. Do not just believe the manufacturer, rather get an independent review. The internet is a great resource for these kinds of things.
Check out the price of cartridges. Some printers have ridiculously expensive cartridges and the refilled cartridges may ruin the printer heads. Compare the cost per page, not the actual cartridge cost.
Find out about after sales service and maintenance. There is little point in getting a printer that is going to cost you a lot in maintenance and cause endless frustration when you try and get some support for a problem.
Know what your usage is going to be. Some printers cannot handle large volumes of printing so if you are going to be printing a lot of pages every day, then you need a more heavy duty colour printer than a home office type printer. Make sure you do not confuse the recommended monthly usage with the duty cycle.
What kind of stuff are you going to want to do? Each colour printer has different capabilities. Some are able to scan and copy and fax as well as just print – so you really need all of this extra stuff, or are you going to be happy with just printing out a few pages now and then? Do you need to be able to print on both sides of the page or just one? These extra functions often add to the cost of the printer.
What is your budget. It is easy to get beguiled into buying a printer with things you are not going to use, decide on a budget and stick to it. That way you will be less likely to end up spending more than you can afford.
Make sure you know what you want before you go looking for a colour printer. If you go into a store and ask for advice, many salesmen will try and sell you the most expensive machine that they can, rather go there with a number of options in mind which you have researched and found to be suitable.
