THE LAT­EST PRINTER OP­TIONS AND HOW TO MAIN­TAIN THEM

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - CONTENTS - BY NIDHI SIN­GAL

A printer is a very use­ful ac­ces­sory for your home com­puter. But which one should you buy? Also, im­por­tantly, how do you main­tain a print­ing ma­chine at home?

The world may be go­ing dig­i­tal but we are not yet liv­ing in a paper­less world. From school projects to e-tick­ets to in­come-tax re­turns, we still have to rely on phys­i­cal doc­u­ments. You can al­ways visit a cy­ber café to get a print, but at the risk of jeop­ar­dis­ing your dig­i­tal se­cu­rity. So if you are will­ing to spend 5 on a monochrome and 10 on a colour print in a cy­ber cafe, why not in­vest in an all-in­one printer that can do the same job for as low as 1.5 per page?

But will any printer do? “While buy­ing a printer for home, do keep in mind the vol­ume or the num­ber of pages you need to print,” ad­vises Nitin Hi­ranan­dani of HP. “Also see if you need the new con­nec­tiv­ity op­tions, such as wire­less print­ing.”

But buy­ing a printer is a long-term com­mit­ment. This is one de­vice that re­quires care— reg­u­lar car­tridge re­place­ments and so on. Here we sug­gest three fea­ture-rich colour multi-func­tional print­ers that cost un­der

10,000, and also tell you the best ways to main­tain home print­ers.
