Before purchasing a printer, it's helpful to construct a profile of your printing expectations. Whether you're a demanding business professional, a graphics professional, a parent with school-aged children, or a thrifty student on the lookout for a bargain printer, there are many possibilities on the market to accommodate your printing needs. For the business professional, selecting a printer to accomplish high-volume workloads means finding a powerful and reliable machine. Look for high resolution and dependability in monochrome or color laser printers with large tray input capacities, copy and scan features, and speeds of at least 16 to 50 pages per minute for black and white, or two to 10 pages per minute for color. If you're a graphics designer, you might opt for high-resolution color inkjet or color laser printers, with copy and scan features, to ensure exact reproduction of color images with maximum print quality. For families looking for the solution to homework and letter-writing inconveniences, a monochrome laser or inkjet printer could be an affordable and efficient alternative. If you're more economically restrained, such as a student on a tight budget, there are many monochrome and color selections in the price range of $50 to $300, which includes both laser and inkjet printers.
