How to evaluate a printer you are thinking of buying

Most of us aren’t computer experts, and that means we can be somewhat at the mercy of salespeople when we are looking for the next printer to buy. This post will provide some guidelines to help you make an educated choice when you’re shopping for a new printer.

The good news is that printer costs have come down significantly over the last decade, and it’s entirely possible to get a very high quality printer for less than a hundred dollars. However, you will also notice that there are quite a few models to select from, and this can make it challenging to determine what the best printer will be for you.

I would start by writing down the exact things you want out of a printer. The choices you have to make will include things like whether or not you want a color or black and white printer, and whether you want additional features such as scanning and faxing capabilities.

Finally, read the reviews for the printers you’re interested in. You can either read the customer reviews on Amazon, or head over to sites like CNET for reviews that are written by professionals. If possible, try to find out how much replacement printer cartridges cost, since this will be your #1 cost after you purchase your printer. It’s also a good idea to find out the return policy of the store you’re buying from, so you have the option to return or exchange the item if you find that the printer you buy is not the right one for you.
