I need to replace my Epson printer but how do I choose the one that best suits my needs

If the time has finally come for you to replace your Epson printer it can seem a bit of a dilemma deciding what to replace your printer with. If you have been using an Epson inkjet printer and have been reasonably happy with it then it follows that you should stick with Epson? Was the Epson printer economical to run and were the Epson ink cartridges affordable to use? The running cost of the printer should be the first thing to consider when you are thinking of buying a new printer. Most Epson printers in the past will have run perfectly well on compatible ink cartridges with very few refusing to accept the. If you are thinking of changing brand, for example to HP, then do some research to see if the printer will happily accept a compatible or remanufactured ink cartridge.

Choosing an Epson printer that accepts reasonably a priced compatible ink cartridgesIt’s very likely that your old Epson printer used the compatibles without any problems and your new Epson should accept them also but it’s worth checking that the latest Epson printers have compatible ink cartridges available for them (in other words, they are not so recent that the compatible version of the cartridge is not yet on the market). If the new Epson printer’s ink cartridge is not yet available it should be on the market within out 3 – 6months but it means in the meantime that you will be paying full price for Epson original brand printer ink.

There are many Epson All-in-One printers currently available that will accept compatibles and will be very economical to run on this basis. The quality of print using compatibles or remanufactured ink is fine for every day use and stands up very well against original brand ink. The only noticeable difference may occur when storing photographic prints that may fade over time but they are fine for everyday general purpose printing at home and in the office. Compatible ink cartridges can offer up to 70% savings when compared to the cost of original brand ink and will make your printing much more affordable.

A good quality Epson printer such as the All-in-One Printer/Copier/Scanner will be sufficient for most home users who regularly print flight boarding passes and for children who need to print their assignments for school. These printers have all the necessary attributes and now come wireless so the printer can be located anywhere in the home without the need for cables. Choosing an Epson printer that accepts reasonably a priced compatible ink cartridge is perhaps, these days, the single most important factor in deciding which printer to buy.
