Lets Talk About Printers

Epson Ecotank

I am always asked about printers and most would know I am a big rap for Epson printers  as they deliver great performance for the cost.

However lets look at some common questions I am asked:

What will be the cost of printing per page and why is that important ?

The cost per page is relative to the cost of the printer – the higher the price of the printer the price per page decreases – cheap printers can be astronomical in price per page– look for printers with ink bottles now such as the Epson Ecotank printers.

What should I do with the disk that comes with the printer ?

Throw it out , the disk that comes with the printer is out of date the minute it is made , head over to the companies website and grab the web installer if they have one or the full package of software and follow the instructions onscreen.

Installing in Windows 10 – should be automatic – Apple computers automatic

Connect your printer to wifi

Wifi – connect it to the router through the wifi / network settings usually on a panel on the front of your printer.This means that all your devices that access wifi should be able to connect.

What is Google cloud print?

Register your printer with Google and you can print from anywhere – more details can be found here: Google Cloud Print
