Where to buy a printer for cheap

If you're a looking to buy a printer for cheap, you may be confused as to which is the best option out there.  First of all, it's important to know exactly what you need to use your printer for.  While it is called a printer, some printers are also capable of performing other tasks, such as emailing, faxing and scanning.  Known as multifunctional printers, these extra features bump the price of the printer much higher and can be surplus to requirements.  If you only want a simple printer, make sure you don't pay for extras you won't use!

Another problem is the fact that sometimes, the cheapest printers are the least efficient when it comes to ink usage.  You may leave the store with a good offer, but those costs will soon rack up the more you print.  If you print rarely, this isn't so much of an issue, but the more you use your printer, the more it will cost you and that's never a good feeling!

With this in mind, laser printers can sometimes be the best choice, despite their increased cost.  After the initial fee, you will find yourself saving cash in the long run, if you print regularly.  It's possible to buy both mono and colour laser printers, which is ideal if you know you only want to print text documents.

Ultimately, it depends on how you use your printer.  A simple inkjet option may be the best for basic, infrequent use and a laser printer may be more efficient in the long run for regular users.  For those that are still not sure whether to buy an inkjet or a laser printer for cheap prints, let's take a look at some popular models on the market today.
