Printers are one of those technology items that you buy once and hope you can use forever. That’s practically the case today; we have a number of printers still in use after 5-10 years. That being said, each year brings slightly upgraded features, whether it’s faster print speeds, better quality output, enhanced wireless connectivity, or a broader feature set. For most users, all-in-one units, which include copy and scan functionality, as well as fax capability in small office-oriented models, are the best value, but even within that category, there are a huge range of options!
