In an earlier article, I went through the benefits of signing up to a managed Print Service, and how this could be of use to your business. However, for whatever reason, this may not be suitable for you. Perhaps it is just the case that yours is a smaller business, and you may only require the one printer.
Below, we examine some of the printers that are available to businesses, enabling you to choose wisely when it comes to making the purchase of a new printer.
Monochrome, Inkjet – What’s the Best?
Let me tell ya, I totally understand how easy it is to get bogged down in technical terms when it comes to computing, and this is true also of printers. There is just so much choice available out there; it can be hard to settle on a definite choice. Really what you should be asking yourself is, what will you need the printer for? Do you need the tasks done fast? In colour? With a fine resolution? Weighing up if some or all of these features are essential to you, will help in narrowing down your search.
Most Expensive – It is Not Always Best!
It can be pretty easy to get caught up in the trap, thinking that the most expensive option is the best. While an expensive printer may be pretty feature packed, stop and think – “will I actually use all of these features?” Chances are, you will not require half the features offered on some of these crazy expensive devices.
Enough of the chat then – what are the best printers available out there, that present good value for money, and have the lastability required, to ensure you are not having to fix the damn thing every 3 months? Below are some of the printers recommended by us, for your careful consideration. As always, shop about online for the best deal, and places like Amazon may through up some serious bargains.
- Ricoh SP-213W – Cheap, double sided printing, but a little noisy
- HP Pagewide Pro 477dw – Fast printing, handles paper well, but pretty heavy
- Epson Ecotank ET-4550 – Comes with 2 years supply of ink, but is slow
- HP Officejet 7110 – Fast printing at low cost, no double sided printing
- Brother HL-S7000DN – Very fast, but pretty expensive also.
Hopefully this is of help to you when it comes to making that purchase of a new printer for your business.
