Wireless printers are growing in popularity for their advantages and convenience. The portability and the fact that it is “wire-free” make this type of printer very useful. There are many manufacturers claiming to offer the very best wireless printers but only a few live up to their claims. Getting the wrong printer will be the beginning of a nightmare for you as far as printing is concerned.
A low quality wireless printer means a limited range or light security, low speed and possibly an inadequate storage space for your print jobs in the queue. A high quality printer on the other hand allows you an adequate range, security and supports unlimited users of an unlimited number of computers. However, the big challenge is how to choose a suitable wireless printer.
Every endeavor requires planning for it to be successful. The search for a fresh, brand new printer also begins by planning, that is, matching your printer needs to your computer’s ability to print full color and monochrome. This will lead you to the most suitable printer for your computer.
After that, begin shopping around for printers. In your search, ensure that you make comparisons of the features of the printers. The print speed is vital and therefore you should compare that for each printer you come across. The most suitable speed for monochrome printing is between 25 to 30 pages per minute while full color print speed should be within the range of 15 to 25 pages per minute. The best printers also have USB ports and memory card slots for easy usage.
Besides that, consider buying an all-in-one wireless printer. Such as additional features that can ease your operations. For instance, the printer can have scanning, faxing, photocopying and even e-mailing options. Also look for printers with extra large paper trays to keep you from continuously refilling the papers. This will save you both time and money as you do not waste any cash on a scanner or fax machine and neither do you keep on refilling papers.
Compare the printing costs of each printer per page to get the most suitable. This can be done by dividing the cost of the print cartridge and the total number of pages it can print out. The lower the price of the cartridge and the higher the number of papers printable, the lower your printing expenses will be. If you can get such a printer you are good to go.
It is also advisable to look for a visual-installation process guide. The wireless printers use a different technology that many people have not got used to. If you do not have enough knowledge on how to install the printers to your PC, you should look for a guide. The visual-installation will direct you on what to connect where exactly and how you can have the printer up and running soon.
Finally, you should compare the printer prices. Every brand will have a different price tag depending on a number of factors. This can be attributed to some unique features that the printer may have, for instance the all-in-one printers with specialty printing. In such cases, rest assured that the prices are bound to be high but comparing them will lead you to the most affordable. Remember though that the price tag does not necessarily reflect the quality of the printer.
