Which Printer is the best for home use?

Brief Description of Printer Types & Uses

Often People’s ask me which Printer is the best for home use and I always reply them by asking their uses, but here is some points which you can also determined before searching a printer for home use or office use.

While we are searching for a best printer for home or office we must have to understand, how printer works and how can we utilize the printer in our daily uses.

Usually three types of printers available in the market.

  1. Laser Printers
  2. Inkjet Printers
  3. Dot matrix printers

Now we will know about the printers & how can you choose the best printers for your home.

1. Laser Printer

Usually Laser Printers used in offices because people want a printer with fine quality & heavy duty, laser printer basically works on the laser printing technology, and the printer uses dry ink to print the document.

You can also use laser printers for your home works if you have a lot of work, but if you are going to buy a laser printer then it will come with B/W document printing, Color Laser Printers are also available in the market but it will be more costly.

But there is also a benefit of laser printer, if you are not using laser printer for many days it will work fine after the rest of many days, and the printing cost of B/W laser printer is also very affordable.

2. Inkjet Printers

Inkjet Printers are very popular for cheapest color printing, mostly home users preferred inkjet printers for home use but there is some cons which i don’t like in the inkjet printers, inkjet printers uses wet ink, if you are not using inkjet printers on the daily basis or once in two days or you left it for many days, ink will go dry and it can damage the head also.
