Buying Guide »


Need a new printer? Facing the immense product range available in shops both on- and offline, you’ll be spoilt for choice. From simple inkjet printers for less than £30 to multifunctional colour laser printers for more than £1,000, there’s a printer ideally suited for whatever your heart desires.


But remember to keep an eye on consequential costs when making your choice, as they can get quite high – especially with cheaper devices.


So, which printer is best for you?


What do you need your printer for?
Generally, you should follow some basic rules:
  • If the printer’s primary use will be for professional purposes or if you’re searching for a suitable device for your office, a laser printer will be the best choice.
  • If your printer will primarily be used at home or in a small office and if you’re planning to use it to print photos, you should look into inkjet printers, which are traditionally said to be better for photo printing.
  • If your digital camera has become your constant companion, the purchase of a specials photo printer might be a wise move.
  • If you use your printer not only for printing but also for scanning documents, a multifunctional device will certainly pay off.

Every device carries certain pros and cons which you need to consider in line with your individual requirements. There are some criteria, however, which you should take into account no matter what specific needs you have – these criteria include storage capacity, plug-ins and additional costs.

A smart tidy all-in-one

Advantages: Looks smart, prints quickly
Disadvantages: Noisy, cartridges could be more economical

I previously had an Epson all-in-one printer that cost me around £100 and lasted me about seven years. I really hated it becuase it used to jam all the time, so I was fairly relieved when it finally gave up the ghost, and I had a good excuse to replace it ...
