The Topmost Reasonable Printers for Students and Home users


As a Computer Home users or Student and Home user, Printer is essential part of Computer because as Student and Home user or Home users you need to take print outs which can be in form of Assignments, Notes, or general work. Below you will find a list of the best printers for Student and Home users, which we hope will help you on your way.

What is the Printing Requirement ?

When it comes to choosing the right printer, you might think //A printer is Only a printer// and not consider more closely what functions each printer has which, ultimately will affect the price. Additionally, and of perhaps greatest importance if you are going to use your printer regularly, is the rate at which you have to change the ink cartridges, and whether the printer cartridges you need to buy are ‘all-in-one’, or individual Colors for each ink cartridge.

If the majority of your printing is going to be text in black and white, then it may make more sense to buy a printer which has a separate black ink cartridge from the color ink cartridges, as otherwise you are paying for colored ink you don’t use. If the volume of work you are going to be printing is high, then you need to make sure you don’t get a printer that Consume the Ink.

Even more economical, if you know you won’t be needing any color, you can buy monochrome printers which saves you having to buy any color ink cartridges, or color toner.

The Topmost Reasonable Printers for Student and Home users

Brother HL-L2340

As a laser printer, this is a neat package with print quality up to 2400 x600 dpi in monochrome. It is ready to print within 30 seconds of powering up and 8.5 seconds from sleep mode. What we like about this printer the most is the size (365mm x 360mm x 183mm) and wireless function, making it ideal for those with limited space.

We also liked the fact that Brother Toner cartridges and Brother Ink cartridges will cover between 1,200 and 2,400 pages so you won’t be forever running out of ink at vital times.
