All About Network Printers

Printers are computing devices that transform electronic data into physical information, usually through the use or print media such as paper.  Printers are usually attached to computers or other sources via a USB cable, although in some cases, a wireless connection is possible.  Some larger printers are designed to fulfil more than one purpose at a time, acting as fax machines or photocopiers if need be and some can read alternate sources such as memory cards and digital cameras.

Network Printers

Network printers differ from normal printers in that they have in-built network interfaces, usually maintained wirelessly and can act as a base or primary source for all users assigned to that particular network.  These printers can be used by both local and networked users simultaneously, to ensure maximum efficiency. Let's take a look at some of the most popular network printers on the market.
