Replacing a printer can be a bit of a headache as the printers on offer locally or online very often use ink cartridges that cost more than the printer! Surprisingly enough you can pick up a basic laser printer or inkjet printer for around the same cost. The main difference is that the inkjet printer will print colour but the budget laser printer will only print in black and white. The running costs of the printer is a big consideration as original brand ink cartridges in Galway are expensive and if the printer will accept non-genuine compatible cartridges it will prove more economical to run.
During the printer’s working life you will need to replenish the consumables such as paper and ink. The running cost of the printer can be calculated in cents per page, this is done by dividing the number of pages an ink cartridge in Galway can produce by the cost of the cartridge. The average cost of a Galway ink cartridge should ideally be calculated based on a non-genuine ink cartridge to obtain the lowest cost per page. This of course does not include the cost of the paper. If you are printing mostly black and white then the printing costs will be lower than colour printing.
The print speed and quality is another issue to take into consideration when choosing your printer. If your requirement is to print black and white text pages then the laser monochrome printer is unbeatable. It’s possible to get up to 20 pages per minute from a laser printer compared to approximately six pages with an inkjet printer. The inkjet printers are slow in comparison to the laser printer but may suit the home user who will print occasional colour images. When you have chosen the printer type that best suits your needs it’s worth giving great consideration to the price of the printer ink in Galway for that printer.
Before you buy, do your research to see if the printer will accept the non-genuine version of the cartridge and just how much you will save by using these rather than the original brand cartridges. With cost of original brand ink cartridges in Galway on the increase, it makes sense to discover just how much the ink or toner is going to cost before you make the investment in a new printer.
Finally, the ease of use of a printer should be no different than that of your phone or tablet. If you are familiar with touch-screen phones etc. then why not consider a touch screen printer.
