I need a new printer

Postby Conrad Knight Socks » 18 Jun 2016, 21:21

Not particularly high traffic - I print maybe 60-100 pages a year.

Should I get inkjet or laser?
I kept thinking "swim as far as you can, swim as far as you can".

If you're printing mostly documents and you want them to come out of the machine quickly, with sharp text and low maintenance i.e./ no faffing about with inks and getting clogged printer heads and having them dry out then a laser is the best option.

Inkjet for just about everything else.

You can probably find a fax/printer in a charity shop for pennies.

The trick there is, will it be compatible with your OS? I need a new printer too, as my otherwise-perfectly-good old one won't work with Windows 10. :x
