How to choose?
In order to choose the best printer for home use, there are certain criteria.
- Format. As a rule, such printers are printed in A4 format, and it is convenient to use their homes. There are those that are printed in A3 format – these printers are more expensive, and if you do not need this feature, it is better not to overpay, it makes no sense.
- Permission. This criterion is very important when choosing a device in order for it to printed photos. The higher resolution the printer has, the better the photos will be. However, if the printer needs you only to print text documents, this criterion does not matter.
- Internal memory. If you are going to print Volume Files – Be sure to pay attention to this criterion. The more memory will be, the better the device will be.
- Modern printer models most often Compatible with almost all devices and operating systems, but it is better to ask the seller better about its compatibility with something specific not to make a mistake with the purchase.
- Cartridge volume. If you are planning to often use the acquired printer, it is important to pay attention to the amount of cartridge it has, because if this volume is small, cartridges will have to change frequently, and they are not. Sometimes a new cartridge may have a price approximate by half of the price of a new printer.
- Performance. When buying, be sure to check how many sheets per month can print one or another model. This is important because the duration of the proper operation of the printer directly depends on this. If a monthly exceeds the device’s printing rate, over time it breaks, and if exceeding excessively, it will come pretty quickly.
