Newest Printer Models: The Best 1st Quarter Models of 2017

Posted by

Printer manufacturers relish the idea of always coming out with the newest printing technology regularly at the start of the new year. 2017 is no exception as the market is now (first quarter yet) awash with several new models out to compete with each other.

Since each printer model are designed with varying features and capabilities, buyers are never given the opportunity to make an intelligent head-to-head comparison. Buyers must contend with purpose, intended use and technology, the three categories in the choice of printers.

Some of the recent printers that satisfy the three categories include:

  1. Brother HL-L8260CDW is a color laser printer that can deliver above average texts and graphics. It also tops other models in paper handling capability, multiple wide-range connectivity and low operating costs. The chosen pick for the best model intended for small offices or workgroups.
  2. Brother MFC-J985DW is a multi function inkjet printer that is designed to deliver very low running costs and good sets of connectivity choices. It can print direct from scan to USB thumb drives and memory cards. The only minus point is it can only print above-average photo quality.
  3. Canon ImageClass LBP151dw is a budget mono laser printer that prints above average printouts. It is compact, with a small footprint, good for homes or small offices.
  4. Canon Pixma TS8020 is a wireless inkjet all-in-one printer that delivers excellent photo and text quality and is extra fast for an inkjet.
  5. Dell S3845cdn is the excellent color laser printer choice for small or micro offices because of its speed, print quality and low operating costs.
  6. Epson WorkForce WF6590 features low operating costs and also intended for small or micro office color inkjet MFP.
  7. HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile All-in-One inkjet printer that is light enough to carry conveniently on trips, can copy, scan as well as print.
  8. HP OfficeJet Pro 6978 is the best choice when it comes to stunning print quality and low running costs. Due to its competitive speed the printer is best suited for offices with low-volume print requirements.  

All printer manufacturers from Brother, to Dell, Canon, HP and the rest always strive to promote the newest printing technology in annual industry fests. With several manufacturers competing to outsmart each other, dozens of models are available for buyers to make an intelligent choice. In the absence of clear head-to-head printer comparison, it makes the the selection process really tough for buyers.

Remember, printer technology is moving forward in leaps and bounds, what is the newest printer technology today will diminish in importance tomorrow and be outdated - good only for the trash bin
