What should you look out for when choosing your next printer?

The first thing to consider is what you will be using the printer for. Depending on this, there are a number of features you should look out for to ensure you choose the right one.

  • Printing technology 
  • Paper size 
  • Type of printing  
  • Print speed  
  • Connectivity  
  • Number of paper trays
  • Additional functions that the printer offers

Which printer is right for you?

Want to buy a printer but not sure if you need a laser or inkjet device? Let us explain the key differences:

Laser printers are designed to produce high-quality print for text documents. Laser printing technology also provides fast printing speeds whilst delivering high print volumes.

Laser printers use toner cartridges, which last longer – making them a popular choice for their low printing cost per page.

Inkjet printers are ideal for printing high-quality colour images. These devices produce excellent photo print quality and also allow borderless printing. Inkjet printers are better for the environment too, due to their lower energy consumption.

Single function printer or all-in-one device?

You can choose between a standalone printer or a multifunction printer, which offers additional functions.

Standalone printers are smaller so they take up less space and are ideal if you just need to print documents, whilst multifunction printers provide the convenience of combining several functions. A 3-in-1 printer enables you to print, scan and copy from the one device, with a 4-in-1 printer also offering the added functionality of being able to fax documents.

As well as the added convenience, combining the functions of several devices into one, can free up valuable space within your office or home.

Brother offers both laser and inkjet technology printers and multifunction devices that come with a range of connectivity options, so you can choose the right printer for you or your business.

Find the most suitable printer for your needs

It really depends on what you will use it for. For simple tasks such as printing out your children’s homework, or the odd boarding pass, then an inkjet device would be the ideal choice. We’d also recommend inkjet technology if you want to print high-quality images or photos.

For scanning or copying documents, then you may want to consider an inkjet multifunction printer with scanner and copier functions.

For printing much larger quantities or if you want to print at speed, you might want to consider a laser printer.

At Brother, you’ll find a wide range of devices for use in the home.

For home section

In the office, print volumes can vary greatly due to multiple users. Laser multifunction devices that can scan and copy with the option of double-sided printing can be particularly relevant in workplaces that print more and need added functionality. Business inkjets are suitable for those offices that require the flexibility to print both A4 and A3. 

For smaller businesses or offices with lower print volumes, inkjet devices are an ideal option.

At Brother, you’ll find a wide range of devices for use in the office.

From one day to the next, you may only need to print a few pages. For this, we recommend an inkjet printer as they are ideal for low-volume printing in colour and black and white.
