Tips for Buying a Budget Printer
Here are several useful tips you should keep in mind when shopping around for the best budget printer:
Consider your printing needs. The cheapest printers that cost up to about $50 are best suited for home use.
If you want a printer for regular use at a home office or a small business, you will have to spend between $50 and $110 for a good one. For really heavy printing needs, you are better off buying a bigger printer that costs well over a $100.
Compare prices across many models before you make a final decision. You don’t have to pay premium prices for trusted brands like HP, Canon, and Epson. Look around online to find the best deal because there are plenty available.
Do not buy used printers. You can get a brand new budget printer for about $50 with the same functionality as a more expensive used one. You may need to spend more money later to repair used printers.
Look for features like wireless and PC-free printing. Some printers can create their own network so there’s no need to access a Wi-Fi connection.
The most money you spend will not be on the printer, but the ink cartridges. Check the type of ink cartridges that are compatible with the printer you choose and check their price. Also consider the number of papers each cartridge can print. If you plan on printing regularly, you will need a printer with high capacity and affordable ink cartridges.
