Re: Printer Buying Guide
A buying guide that tries to be comprehensive about _ALL_
printers available at any given moment would be a monumental
undertaking. They tend to be hit or miss about narrower
categories of product type, it might be better to focus on
the aspects you already feel you need which segregate you
from other printer buyers...
- Cost, initial cost and total cost of ownership, whether
you prefer the pricing model where you pay more for the
printer then more economical operation or pay less for the
printer but more later for the replacement cartridges.
- Printing volume
- Print Engine Tech (ink, laser, dyesub, etc)
- Color or B&W
- Quality of support and expected lifespan of printer vs
manufacturer track record for suppling newer OS drivers,
With these factors determined you can find several models
available at the most popular brands' websites and web
search for reviews. You might also search ebay for toner or
ink refills for any prospective candidate to see if they're
available as it would lower your per page cost, though with
some models there is a lag between entry into the market and
later 3rd party ink/toner supply for the model.
