A printer is one of the most important peripherals you will ever buy. After all, any physical output from your computer likely will come from your printer.
There are a plethora of manufacturers, types, and levels of quality from which to choose when choosing a printer.
Many times, if you buy your computer from a retail store, a low-price printer is part of the package. These are usually fine for most output.
However, if you print photographs, you may want to invest in a photo inkjet printer. These generally can be had in the $100 to $200 range for entry-level inkjets. Of course, as in anything, the sky is the limit: If you’re a professional photographer, it’s a virtual certainty that there are printers out there that could fetch tens of thousands of dollars.
We suggest sticking with entry- to mid-level inkjet printers for all but the most serious home applications. Canon, Epson, and HP all offer a variety of choices.
Things to keep in mind: If you don’t print photographs, you will. Invest in a photo-realistic printer now and you will not be disappointed.
