Printers/ Fax Machines

Every office needs a printer and a fax machine!

How do you pick which model? A lot of the printers out there include a fax machine, so it is more important to focus on the printing aspect. What sets printers apart? Why would you pick one over another?

Print Yeild- This is how many pages of typed text you get from one toner cartridge or ink cartridge. When comparing print yeild, be sure to look into not only how many pages you will get, but how much a refill costs as well.

DPI (dots per inch)- This refers to how many dots of ink or toner the printer puts into one square inch of a page. The higher the DPI the better the print resolution will be.

Wireless Network connectivity- Some printers can only be connected using a USB cable, others can connect via wired networking, now days, most can be connected wirelessly. It is important to look into a printers connectivity abilities and consider what your business needs before settling for a printer.

Duplex Printing- Do you need to print on both sides of the page? Make sure you consider this option.

The big question- Ink versus laser- how do you choose?

Basically it breaks down to this:

Inkjet- Good quality images and colour

Laserjet- Faster printing, higher volume

If you are printing more than 20 pages a day, chances are laserjet is more suited for you, but if you print a lot of pages that require clear sharp images, you are more than likely going to need an inkjet. Inkjet usually has a higher cost per page, although replacing a toner cartidge is very expensive even though it is done less often.

It is a good idea to look into how much ink or toner will cost for the printer you are interested in before you buy it.
