There's a home printer for all kinds of printing that you could require. However, deciding on the right printer can be difficult, given the sheer variety of options available on the market. To make it easier, we've put together a quick-and-dirty buying guide for selecting a home printer, with simple explanations of some of the most common terms, as well as suggestions that will serve the majority of customers.

Inkjet or laser?
Printer buyers must answer the following question: What do you want to print and how much do you intend to print? Inkjet printers use cartridges of ink which apply wet to paper and rapidly dry, while laser printers use toner, a form of ink dust that bonds with paper for fast results and efficient resource use. ,Visit here.

The majority of inkjet printers with color are popular because they can print almost anything: Pie charts, essays, glossy photos and even pie charts. Today's inkjet printers as well as all-in-ones are fast, often with print speeds that rival or surpass their laser counterparts.

Laser printers remain the best option for office settings when most of the printing that requires printing is monochrome. Monochrome laser printers are cost-effective they print quickly, and can be less expensive per page than inkjets that use color. However, you need to decide whether to give up the flexibility that a color inkjet printer offers. Although color laser printers are another option, they're typically more costly per page than standard inkjet.

Laser printers tend to have excellent page yields; their toner cartridges that last for a long time can last between three and 20000 pages before needing to be changed. Inkjet cartridges can last between 2,000 to two hundred pages. This isn't as important when you don't print a lot or often however for printers with a lot of print capacity or those buying for an office, it can be a significant difference.

Multifunction printers
A multifunction printer is a printer that can also scan, fax and scan as well printing. These printers are available in inkjet or laser versions and are often called multifunction printers (MFPs) or "all-in-1s".

For home use, a multifunction unit makes a lot of sense, not only because it's cheaper than buying a printer and a standalone scanner and a standalone printer, but also to save room. We strongly recommend all-in-ones to homes. They're quite common and they don't usually come with a high cost (often as low as $50-60).

MFPs allow you to scan documents to your computer and some allow the option of faxing. They are more likely to be used in the office however the faxing feature has been largely pushed out of the world of business except in a few select sectors and the value isn't great.

Photo printers
A dedicated (single-function) photo printer is a good choice If you're more concerned with conserving family photos rather instead of printing pie charts or assignments for your homework. They're not as flexible as multitaskers, but the prints are usually superior to those you can get through kiosks or a mail-order service. The cost you be paying for this convenience comes out through the cost of printing however. ,Website.

A lot of printers that are sold exclusively for photographic or graphic printing are compact units capable of printing images up to 4 by 6 inches in size or wide format models that can print up to 24 inches wide. These printers for specific purposes tend to be more expensive than the multifunction printer. Both Canon and Epson have models that print 8.5 by 11 inches and utilize five or six colors of ink to produce images with more accurate color. Many all-in-one printers are capable of turning out photos up to 8.5 by 11 inches in size when you choose the appropriate paper.
