When shopping for computer printers, think about how you will use the printer the majority of times. Choose the capabilities most important to you, including the number of pages you can print, copy or fax per minute, printing and scanning resolution, double-sided options, automatic document feeding and of course, how much will it cost to replace the ink.

In our opinion, cost per page (CPP) is one of the key buying criteria someone should always consider. If an ink cartridge costs $20 and you get 500 pages printed from 1 cartridge, your effective cost per page to print is $.04 per page. But if that same cartridge costs $50 to replace, you are now paying $.10 per page to print. So sometimes, an $89 Printer, with a cost per page of $.10, can cost you hundreds of dollars more at the end of the day then a printer that costs $199 and has a cost per page of only $.02 . So don’t be penny wise and dollar foolish.
