- Selecting the right printer which offers you the best value for money out of the plethora of options available in the market can be a tough choice to make. We have put together a quick guide to help you make the right selection for your needs.
Buying a printer requires careful consideration and an understanding of your printing needs, as well as the kind of use that the printer is going to be put to. There is a universe of options available out there. We have put together a quick guide to help you pick the right machine that suits your requirements.
The all-new Canon PIXMA, India ka printer, takes care of all your printing needs as it offers an all-in-one solution for high volume printing, at incredibly low running costs. The icing on the cake is the attractive price tag, as the PIXMA G3010 is available for ₹15,675 only!
Look at the kind of printing you need to do
The number pages you will print every week or month, and also the kind of printing to be done should be considered. A high volume of printing translates into higher costs of ink, so one should opt for a printer with a low per page cost of printing, even if the cost of the printer is higher. The print speed, measured in prints (pages or images) per minute, also needs to be seen for high volume printing.
The PIXMA G3010 is designed for high volume printing at low running costs, as it prints 8.8 ipm (images per minute) in mono and 5 ipm in colour.
Think about long term costs
Most people opt for the printer that fits their budget, not looking at the costs they will have to incur in the long run like the cost of replacing printer ink or annual maintenance charges. While the initial cost of the printer is a major consideration, one must also see the kind of ink cartridges used in it along with their cost and the number of pages they can print.
The unique ink filling system using high page yield ink bottles used in the PIXMA G3010 offer you the convenience of printing without having to worry about the cost of ink, or ink supplies running low.
Evaluate your printing needs
The first thing to think about while choosing the right printer is the nature of printing you need to do. If the printer is only for home use, for a limited number of prints, you can opt for a basic desk printer. But, if you are using it for an office set-up, where multiple people are going to be accessing it, an all-in-one device that goes beyond printing to include scanning and copying may be a better choice.
The PIXMA G3010 offers print, scan and copy options offering an all-in-one solution to all your needs.
Do you need photo printing to be done?
Some printers offer better resolutions to print photographs and coloured prints for school assignments while others are better suited for fast prints of documents. Even the balance of colours and their brightness differs from printer to printer.
Canon printers are well-known for their photo quality and this one is no exception as it gives great quality photo prints. A PosterArtist Lite software lets you choose from over 100 templates to create posters and flyers for small businesses.
Check the space
Allocate a space for the printer and select a model that fits well into it. There are several compact versions available in the market. In case your desk is already too crowded to fit a printer, you can opt for one with wifi connectivity so you can place it anywhere in the house and fire print commands remotely.
The integrated ink tank system built into the printer lends it a compact body design, which helps save space. The remaining ink levels are easily visible too, making sure that you replenish the ink well in time. A one-touch wireless connection allows you to connect it easily to your smartphone.
