Looking for an effective printer for your office or home? You must think that buying one is as simple as it gets-unfortunately, such is not the case. You are confronted with lots of options-some impressive yet expensive-some average but within budget. Of course, the features matter too! After all, you can’t let your work hinder because of the price or the brand.
So what do the latest trends say? From inkjets to lasers—we have listed out a few printers for you that might appeal to you not only because of their features but also cost. Have a look:
1. Canon PIXMA MG2470 Inkjet:
This printer is lightweight (3.5kg) and compact. Its apt shape allows it to fit anywhere easily-even at the shelf of your home. Its Auto Power ON button is for the print command and mechanically switches the printer ON, if connected via USB. This Canon creation is perfect for printing various images, collages, and even calendars.
Price: Rs. 2,499
2. HP DeskJet 2131 All-in-One Printer:
If you are technologically-challenged and prefer to have a machine that it is easy-to-use, then this HP printer is brilliant! It easily takes care of your regular printing and scanning. It has an optional high-yield ink cartridge. The design is space-saving and the printer also has an energy-saving feature, known as the HP Auto-Off Technology.
3. Brother HI 1201:
This printer is apt for affordable printing in small offices and homes. It can print 20 pages per minute-which is not bad at all! It comes with Booklet, Water and Poster printing capability. Its high-end technology makes it less prone to paper jams. The only con is that it is a black & white printer. That limits the purpose of having this Brother creation! It also doesn’t have a scanner.
4. Epson WorkForce WF-2540:
Compact, sleek and fast—this printer also has the option of Wi-Fi. Small in size, it can print, copy, scan and even fax-that makes it a favourable commodity at office. You can print with USB and SD cards. In addition to this, it has a big, bright 2.5-inch LCD control screen. Basically, it is a different kind of printer—but extremely useful.
Price: Rs. 7,800
5. Ricoh Laser Printer SP 111:
This device uses a toner, instead of cartridges and can print 16 pages per minute. It’s small and compact. The quality of the print is decent enough to not put strain on the eyes. It features jam free technology. The only catch here is that it is a black and white printer. In addition to this, it can’t act as a scanner.
Price: Rs. 3850
Buy a printer that solves your daily needs-whether in office or at home. Don’t go for a monochrome printer just because it is pocket-friendly. Similarly, don’t buy an expensive colour printer when you don’t need one. Gauge all attributes and then make a smart choice.
