WHAT BRAND OF PRINTER SHOULD I BUY, BROTHER, EPSON, XEROX.....?
Confusing, isn't it, when its time to go buying a new printer?
There are so
many things to consider when buying a printer, like what sort of printer
cartridge do I use (Inkjet or Toner), what functions do I need it for, do I
want colour, etc, etc.
discussed a number of these issues on previous blogs, but today we are looking
at the issue of what brand is the best to buy?
There are 18
major brand names out there you can choose from, and because they are major
brand names, you are unlikely to buy a lemon.
brand sells a lot of different models of printers. And some of those models,
while you wouldn’t necessarily call them lemons, they might not be offering the
best range of features e.g. one printer might produce a higher quality of print
than another from that same brand. If printer quality (good v acceptable) is
not your hot point, then it doesn’t matter.
There is no
particular brand that is better than another. Like saying all Russians are
communists, or all French people like wine, you can’t say all ‘x’ brand is
better than ‘y’ brand.
buying a brand because it is better, look at factors like what is their after-sales
service in your location like, do they have efficient repair facilities, are
their prices competitive for the type of printer you want?
buying a new printer, this could be your order of priority:
of printer (Inkjet/toner, single/multi function, mono/colour, photo/copier
of printer, including cost of printer cartridges.
reviews, talk with large multi –brand retailers, other users etc
you have a short-list, if a large (expensive) printer,look at the supplier’s after
sales service, maintenance agreement; if low cost, look up model on the
internet to get user’s opinion.
your decision, don’t procrastinate (an awful word), and buy it!
