I need a printer. Which printer should I buy? With over 400 models, it's easy to lose track if you don't ask yourself a few questions beforehand. Are you looking for an inkjet or laser printer? Should it be a black and white printer (mono laser) or a colour printer (colour laser printer or ink jet printer)?
Almost every model prints, scans and copies DIN A4, DIN A5 and letter format. If you print frequently and only want to print texts or documents, then a monolaser is the cheapest option. If you print frequently and also want to print in colour in between, then you are well advised to use a colour laser. Manufacturers such as Canon (PIXMA G series), Epson (WorkForce and EcoTank) and HP (PageWide) also have inkjet printers on offer, which can score with a low page price or compete with a laser printer in speed. If you occasionally want to print photos, an inkjet printer from Canon (PIXMA TS), Epson (Expression Photo, EcoTank Photo) or HP (Envy Photo) is the right choice. For the office, the HP model series (OfficeJet Pro and LaserJet Pro) have been classics for years.
Laser printers stock almost all popular printer brands: Brother, Canon, HP, Kyocera, Lexmark, OKI, Ricoh, Samsung and Xerox. The printers often differ only slightly and each brand has different models with different configurations in the range: ADF (automatic document feeder) and duplex printing (double-sided printing) are now standard with a laser multifunction printer, but duplex scanning and faxing are not. The same applies to connectivity: most models can be connected to the end device via USB or a network connection (LAN). Wifi capability (WLAN) is also often integrated or can be purchased through adapters, while NFC connectivity and Bluetooth connectivity are even less common. The paper capacity can often be expanded, especially with more expensive laser printers, by purchasing additional paper trays. Laser printers are mainly used in the business environment, but are also finding an ever larger clientele in the home office sector due to falling prices. Prints up to DIN A3 are no problem with the colour laser printers from Kyocera, OKI, Ricoh, Samsung or Xerox or the inkjet printers from Brother, Epson and HP.
