Choosing the right printer will save you money in the long run. Don’t be tempted by these cheap deals that some of the high street stores are constantly running. They want you to have these cheap printers so you buy the expensive toner cartridges. They have to make their money somewhere and cheap printers mean expensive inks.
Always shop around for printer ink costs when buying a new printer. If you do a lot of printing maybe it might be worth while picking up a laser printer where you buy laser toner instead of ink cartridges as they last a lot longer. You can also buy mono laser printers which just print in black making things cheaper again.
It is worthwhile to checkout compatible printer ink cartridges when replacing the original ink you get with the printer as they are usually a lot cheaper and even contain more ink! Just be sure to shop around before you are tempted by some of these great “deals!”.
