Inkjet Printers Buying Guide

Why choose an inkjet over a laser printer?

The concept behind inkjets will be familiar to most readers: ink gets squirted out of nozzles located within the printhead, which distribute the ink across the page as it is fed through the printer.;1950419218


Printer specifications

There are several key specifications which consumers can use to differentiate between inkjet printers.;1950419218;pp;2

Overview of types of inkjet printers

Home Printers

Also known as entry-level printers, these units are highlighted by their simplistic feature sets and sparse controls. They are easy to install and use, and are perfect for printing documents and Web pages. If you want to print the occasional photograph, they will also indulge you: however, their quality - while being sharp and still very impressive - will not be as stellar as that of a dedicated photo printer.;1950419218;pp;5#overviewoftypesofinkjetprinters

The Essential Buying Guide: Photo Printers

By M. David Stone
October 5, 2004
The best photos these days are digital—not because they're better quality, but because they can go everywhere.

Now that printers can finally produce true photo quality, you can print your precious memories with confidence.,1759,1647136,00.asp

Personal Printers: The Essential Buying Guide

By M. David Stone
May 18, 2004
Buying a personal printer today involves making not one choice but several in an increasingly crowded market. Prices range from under $100 to over $1,000. You can buy a standard printer, a dedicated photo printer, or an all-in-one (also called a multifunction printer). Then there's the choice of technology: ink jet or laser, monochrome or color. And personal printers aren't even necessarily personal: Some are more office-oriented, with network connections built in.

Printing in Black, Revisited

By M. David Stone

In the item "Printing in Black", we mentioned that most ink jets can't use their black ink on glossy paper. One reader insisted that no printer he has seen has to mix colors to print black, except for three-color printers that don't have black ink. We thought it would be useful to look at this issue in just a little more depth.,1759,1722379,00.asp

Cropping for printing

By Les Freed
When it comes to printing, digital photographers face a hurdle that has challenged film photographers over the years: the aspect ratio. A 35-mm negative has an aspect ratio of 1.5:1, the same as the popular 4-by-6 print. But many digital cameras use image sensors with a 1.33:1 (or 4:3) aspect ratio. Popular print sizes 8-by-10 and 5-by-7 have ratios of 1.25:1 and 1.4:1,1759,1023211,00.asp


Printing Utilities

By Matthew P. Graven
If you've ever wanted to lay out a document so that it prints four pages per sheet, or if you've spent hours trying to print a large Microsoft Word document as a booklet, then you've probably noticed that most applications and printer drivers don't offer enough print options. Typically, outputting only a selected portion of a page, printing on both sides of a sheet of paper, or printing multiple pages per side is a frustrating process of trial and error. Here are two utilities that make such tasks a lot easier.,1759,1096691,00.asp

Aimee's photo-printing checklist

Calibrate Your Printer
From Jacci Howard Bear
WYSIWYG Printing: why and how to calibrate your printer

Have you ever printed a graphic that looked "Christmas" red and green on screen but when printed you ended up with purple and lime green? Even if the differences were not quite so dramatic, the way images look on screen differs from the way they look in print. Calibrating your monitor provides a screen display that simulates what prints on paper.

What's Right For: The Home Office

From Barbara Krasnoff

Who You Are

You’re no longer on staff at that large corporation – you’re now officially an “entrepreneur.” In other words, your unemployment insurance is about to run out, there isn’t a new job on the horizon, and you’ve decided do strike out on your own. You’ve set aside the second bedroom as an office; you’ve set up your system, your broadband connection, and your Web.

What's Right For: Low-Cost Home Printing

From Barbara Krasnoff,

Meanwhile, your 10-year-old wants to publish a newsletter for her class, your husband is planning to sell the car and wants to print up some posters, and you are finishing a report for work tomorrow.


What's Right For: Printers For Kids

From Barbara Krasnoff,
