Ink technology

Home printing has been around for years, and while connectivity and performance have improved dramatically, the way we replace ink has stayed the same. However, both HP and Epson have devised great new ways to keep your printers topped up that can make your life easier.

HP Instant Ink

Instant Ink is a feature built into certain HP printers that allows you to pay a single monthly fee to print a pre-determined number of pages per month. Ink is automatically delivered directly to your house before you run out, with the monthly payment inclusive of delivery and recycling.

Instant Ink can help you save money and guarantees you never run out of ink.

Epson EcoTank

Unlike normal printers that use disposable cartridges, Epson EcoTank printers feature tanks that can be refilled using top-up bottles that contain enough ink for up to 6500 prints each. Refilling rather than replacing can help you save up to 65% on ink.

The top-up bottles contain high-quality ink that has been designed to work perfectly with the EcoTank printers.

Things to consider when buying a printer

  • Icon needed

    Inkjet or laser?

    The first thing to consider when buying is whether you need an inkjet or laser printer. Inkjet printers are ideal for home printing as they offer photo-quality prints, lower ink cost and great connectivity.

    Laser printers are more suited to businesses or regular printing thanks to their high-yield toner cartridges and fast print speeds.

  • Icon needed

    Wireless

    Along with a USB cable, many printers can connect wirelessly. The product pages clearly list all the ways a printer can connect to help you easily find one that will work with all your devices.

    Look out for AirPrint for iOS, Google Cloud Print for Android, WiFi for PC and Mac and NFC for the latest smartphones and tablets.

  • Icon needed

    Performance

    Typically, laser printers work quicker than their inkjet counterparts, although there can be significant variation between brands and type.

    We list all of our printers’ speeds in either pages per minute (ppm) or images per minute (ipm) depending on the type, so you can quickly find a printer to suit your requirements.

  • Multifunction

    Functionality

    Printing from your smartphone, tablet and PC is simple. You can connect to the vast majority of printers using a USB cable, while many allow you to connect wirelessly using WiFi.

    Printers aimed at business use feature an Ethernet port for easy networking. Look out for all-in-ones with a fax machine for a complete business solution from one device.
