Things You Should Know Before Buying a Printer

Today while buying a printer various people don’t know which one to buy and why? So we are here to get you know about how to buy printer by judging all its qualities. Like while selecting mobile phones we like to know about its hardware, software, price and other additional features. Similarly printers also have some aspects like dpi, paper handling, internal memory and networking, etc.  We can also compile all above with a line: “How To Buy A Printer?” So we going to shine light over the aspects below:

Set Targets

First you need to set budget for your printer. You want to buy colored or black and white Printer, or a multipurpose printer which also has fax, scanner and copier. Set your goals on what do you want from this type of machine. But keep in mind low cost printer will have high cost printing.

After doing all above things you need to know these things:

DPI (Dots Per Inch)

If you want printer for only text based printing you can buy printer with 300, 600 dpi or dots per inch. Since most of the text based printing is done via black and white ink in which we don’t need high resolution printing.

If you want printer for high resolution photos then you need printer with higher dots per inch rate. It will give you image prints at high resolution.

Paper handling

These days, there are various types of printers from small to large size which have different types of paper handling. Some large printers automatically handle paper while most of the printers need manual help to take paper in. If you want to buy for home purpose, then printer holding upto 10-150 sheets per tray is a good option. If you want a printer for Business purpose than you need to expect more in this category, they should have 250-500 sheets holding capacity per tray.

These days printers having duplex feature are making good money. Actually duplex printing allow two sided printing which cuts your paper cost and does its bit for environment also.

Internal Memory

We can also say it as RAM. Mainly Home usage printers don’t have any internal memory but Business usage printers really do. There are different ranges according to printers’ working. If you are going to buy standard printer then check that it must have Internal memory of 32MB to 128MB. If you are opting for high end printers than it must have 256MB to 512MB of RAM.

Different Printers For Different Purposes:

In market many types of printers are available to suit your work need. We are listing some printers for specified work:

Inkjet Printers:

  • High-End, Graphics-oriented machines
  • Speed and Print Quality vary with Inkjet Models but most of them print at slow rate due to its high quality.

Multifunction Printer:

  • It has fax, scanner, copier and printer all in one machine
  • It is available from low price to high price. Most of these printers (low cost) work on inkjet technology so it may slow down ppi.

Thermal Printers

A thermal printer uses special heat sensitive paper to print an image, using heat to literally burn-in the digital instructions on the paper. These types of printers are used in calculators and fax machines. The quality of print is inferior and is also inexpensive.

You can also print wirelessly via your iPhone or any other smartphone. For detailed information click here.

Canon E500 Vs. HP Dj2060

HP Photosmart 425 Gogo Photo Studio Printer Coming Soon

Printer: Canon E500 Vs. HP Dj2060

Recently we have seen the launch of Canon E500 printer in the market. Canon has priced it for Rs. 6,000 in the market. According to Canon its printer is Ink Efficient and is built to give you an affordable printing experience.  Canon also says that it has packed Canon E500 with the new FINE cartridge which improves color reproduction in the red area for more brilliant colour images. Canon is propagating the high yield (2000 plus pages) of black cartridge being used in this printer through unofficial channels.

To get these facts true, we decided to get this printer tested for the yield and other qualitative aspects. To get it tested, we adopted to compare Canon E500 with HP Dj2060 (in order to compare, we tested both). Here are some gimmicks which our competition has adopted. Take a look at:

  • While Competition is claiming the yield of 2000 plus pages from a single black cartridge, there is no official mention or endorsement of this yield on competition website/product brochure, etc.
  • Call competition helpline no. and customer support executives don’t mention any yield for this printer.
  • The published yield on the brochure (attached in the mail) is 800 pages only as per ISO.

We started the testing with ISO standard page to see the results. The actual yield came out to be 800 pages which is far too low from the reality. After comparing all other aspects with HP Dj2060 we found that HP Dj2060 is a much better proposition for a customer compared to Canon E500. You can check out the image below for full results:

We did a PFV (Price function Value) comparison for HP Dj2060 vis-à-vis Canon E500 and results came in the basket of Hp Dj2060, which is 11% cheaper compared to E500. For arriving a PFV what we did was that wherever there is feature advantage or disadvantage we have assigned a value to that feature and reduced/added back to the MOP of Dj2060 to arrive at net value. For example, there is a clear advantage of Reebok voucher with Dj2060 and we have assigned a value of Rs.600 only to this and reduced from the MOP.

Clear Advantages with Dj2060:

  • HP Dj2060 cartridge prices are more affordable. The POP for black cartridge is 34% lower and for color cartridge it is 50% lower compared to competition.
  • HP Dj2060 is more energy efficient compared to competition.
  • Consumer promo of Reebok voucher worth Rs.1000/-
  • HP brand reliability & wide service network.
  • 120 promoters exclusively dedicated to promote Ink Advantage in key outlets. Please be demanding from these outlets and don’t allow stocking/selling of Canon E500/L series printers from these outlets.

So guys we came to know that HP Dj2060 is an excellent performer in real time and we also grounded Canon’s high flying features. So guys from here HP Dj2060 is way ahead of Canon E500.
