8 Tips on How to Buy a Printer

The consumables – a key element:
For having a long lifetime of quality printing, you need cartridges with lots of ink. Ordinary consumables don’t last long and they are expensive to replace.
You might want to consider as an alternative a system with refillable cartridges, like CISS (continuous ink supply system)

Avoid built-in print head cartridges
They usually come with cheap, entry-level printers and don’t last long. A mid or top rage printer is able to use a permanent print-head together with separate ink cartridges per each color.

Printer or Multifunction device?
Depending on your needs and the prices, it is sometimes wise to choose a MFC that can also scan and photocopy documents.

Inkjet or Laser?
Inkjet printers are better both price and quality wise.

Printers for home use
Mid-range equipments are the best option for a reliable and efficient printing of documents and photos. Examples: Canon MG5150/MG5250 and Epson Stylus SX235/SX425/SX525. Also check the CISS Canon and CISS Epson

Printers for offices
You need a fast multifunction device with duplex (two-sided printing), also, with network interface or wireless, for parallel printing.

Photo printers
These are made for quality printing. They compose images using multiple colors (5, 6 or 8 instead of 4 for normal equipment) and they are able to print on CDs / DVDs.

Save up to 90% on printing cost with CISS

CISS (continuous ink supply system) is a revolutionary technology that turns home or office printing into a quality and cost effective experience.

There are many advantages of using CISS in comparison with classical ink cartridges.

First of all, the lifetime of filled tanks (external reservoirs – containing the equivalent of 10 to 30 sets of original ink cartridges) is way longer than the conventional cartridges and you never have to replace them, only a refill of singular color tank (about 100ml each) is needed when used up (they are transparent, so you are aware of their status). This helps to save a major amount of money (up to 95%) and the quality of printing is irreproachable.

With CISS, it doesn’t matter if you print in black and white or color, the costs are the same. Plus, there’s no danger of the ink system drying out, so you will be using it completely.

CISS can be attached easily to any printer (installation is easy, between 5 and 20 minutes), so it’s most likely that your current one is compatible with a particular CISS. Now you can buy one online through www.cissmarket.com and have it delivered to your home within 4 working days, no matter where you live in Europe.
