Why Use An Inkjet Printer?

February 22, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 231

Inkjet printers come in a huge selection of models ranging from cheaper, low-end printers to high-end printers for printing quality images. If you are using your printer for home or small office use, a low-end inkjet should suffice - for example, if you are printing receipts, letters and low quality images. For offices or homeowners who want to use their inkjet to produce high quality images, flyers and other promotional materials it would be investing in a more expensive printer for its high resolution and colour quality.

Inkjet printers come in a variety of forms. You can buy portable, lightweight printers if you're on the go or travelling for business - some weigh less than five pounds! Portable printers are ideal if you're on the move and they can be battery powered and allow you to print photos without a computer via USB cable. They are designed to compact and can produce high quality prints depending on which type of model you buy. Other types also allow you to print images directly from your digital camera, and some will have an LCD display screen so you can see the images you are printing on your printer.

A standard inkjet printer for basic home or office use will usually come with three settings: draft, standard and quality (or something similar). These settings should suffice if you are just using your printer to produce basic documents such as receipts, emails and low quality images.

The speed of an inkjet printer is measured in the number of pages it can print per minute (PPM) - the speed of the printer is an important factor if you are wanting to constantly produce high quality images. As is the printer resolution, which is measured in dots per inch (DPI). Inkjets work by spraying small droplets of ink onto the paper creating very fine, high quality images, the higher the DPI, the better the quality and the more crisp the image. Another important factor you should consider when purchasing a printer is its memory size, the memory built into the printer is its RAM but you should also consider additional memory if you are serious about printing. Many printers come with memory card slots and USB slots so you can print photos directly from your digital camera. Also check your printer's paper handling capacity, most printing trays will be able to hold 250 pages but if you are printing constantly throughout the day it would be worth checking if your printer has the option to add additional trays.

You should also consider which type of cartridge your inkjet takes - how expensive are they to buy? Do third-party cartridge stores supply this type of cartridge so you can save money on printing costs? Inkjet cartridges can be pricey so it's worth seeing if third-party suppliers can provide you with refills so you aren't left with a gaping hole in your pocket. Not only will you be saving money by purchasing a third-party refill but you'll also be helping the planet's already limited resources by recycling.
