I should get a printer

Posted on Monday, July 23rd 2007 4:25 am by menj in Offbeat

I find it strange that although I have a 17″ LCD screen (replacement for a [literally] burnt-out monitor), new SonicGear speakers and a scanner to boot, I still have to run to the nearest cybercafe in order to print out stuff on A4-sized sheets of paper. It might be time for me to get a new printer or something. Of course there is the cost factor to be considered, so I might be going for an Epson Stylus D92. I read in a review that there are cheap epson d92 inkjet cartridges on sale for this printer model, so unlike other models in the market this particular printer would be cost-saving and cheaper in the long run. I am not running a printing house, after all.

      Which brand of mono laser multifunction printer should I get?

      I only need it for basic home study/office purposes. I wont be printing lots of photos. Also a multifunction with fax or PC fax would be good.

      I want a home printer, just used for printing out homework, pictures etc, and a lot of it will be in colour. I don’t want to keep having to buy expensive cartridges and toners, what printer is best to buy?

      I don’t want it to be too expensive. My laptop doesn’t seem to be compatible with a dell printer that we already have, so I need to get a new one.

      I have an imac OS X. I need a printer mostly to print documents and images from my computer. Eventually I may want to print photo’s when I get a digital camera. I want to keep the cost under $100.00 Canadian. I have no idea where to even begin. What is a good brand? What features should I be looking for? Should I purchase the extended warranty?

      I need a printer that’s compatible for a mac laptop. I’m looking for something wireless and it has to be a color printer and a black/white printer. Also, I’m looking for a printer that can make copies. Any suggestions?

      Also, if I get a certain printer do I need to buy something else so it can print wirelessly?

      I am a student that just needs a printer for essays, reports, etc. I might rarely use color for graphs and charts, but otherwise everything else would be in black and white. I was thinking of getting a laser printer. My last printer cost me way more in ink cartridges than I like to think about. I want to avoid going through that again. Any suggestions as to what printer I should get would be very helpful.

      I’m planning to buy a printer for my photos, and I’ve read that printer models vary more in speed than quality.

      The quality I’m looking for is mid-high quality, for hobbyists.
      I’m deciding to get one around a 150 bucks. Any suggestions on what I should look out for?
      What’s the difference between Canon Selphy and Pixma printers?
      Should I get a first or second hand printer?
      Thanks in advance

      So I’m going to be a sophomore and I’d like a printer that could last all throughout high school. I’m thinking a Laserjet? Basically, something simple just to print out essays and stuff, nothing really big or fancy.

      And around how much would that cost?

      Often printer models have DT, N, DN, DX, etc… after the model number. What would be the difference between a DT printer and a DN? Specifically Im looking at the Xerox Phaser 8560DT vs 8560DN. Thanks!

      I’ve already asked the question about printing to canvas and was told that it is possible to do it myself, but i obviously need a special printer for me to do this, Can anyone tell me which printer i need and also does anyone know the procedure for printing to canvas and how easy or hard it is to do it myself. I would really appreciate any help you can give me as I’m really keen to do a canvas but don’t want to pay the ridiculous prices that companies charge

      Thanks Gel

      We have a printer that connects through usb and with 5 computers in the house, it can be a hassle to use the printer. Is there any way that we can get the printer on our network so we can print anywhere? 2 of the computers are running xp and the other 3 have vista.

      It’s a brand new printer, and I am a little confused on how it works. Do most new printers have wireless capabilities or only a select few?
      Thanks for any info
