Which Wireless Printer Should I Purchase For My Home or Office?
Adding a networked printer to your home or office network is a great way to add convenience and productivity to save you time while computing. An even more convenient networked printer is a wireless printer. These printers connect to your network through your wi-fi connection on your router so all your computers can print from a central printer with out having to be plugged in to it. There are both ink jet and laser versions available and each have their own advantages. Ink jet printers cost less initially and the individual ink cartridges are cheaper because they print a lesser number of pages per cartridge. A laser printer will produce more accurate printed pages and the ink dries virtually instantly to prevent smudging. The drawbacks of owning a laser printer are the initial cost of the printer will be substantially more than an ink jet printer and the cost of each cartridge is also substantially more than ink jet cartridges but the per page cost of a laser printer cartridge is much less and you have to replace them only after very long periods of time which is more convenient.

Many companies make wireless inkjet printers that connect to a wireless network these days. Two of the main and most reputable manufactures are HP and Canon. You can get an all-in-one type inkjet printer if you may also use features like scanning, copying and faxing or cheaper models are available that only print if you already have devices that do what an all-in-one can do or you have no need for those features.
