10 Reasons to Buy a New Print Device


1. Low-Melt Toner
The fusing temperature of toner sounds arcane, but its consequences are farreaching. The lower melting point of new generation toner reduces printer power requirements, resulting in a lower total cost of ownership (TCO). Thanks to a smaller particle size, printer manufacturers have been able to shrink toner cartridges and the printers themselves.

2. High Yield Toner Cartridges
Using high yield toner cartridges that cost more but last longer is the easiest way to cut print costs.

3. Business Inkjets
Do you need a laser printer or would a high speed business inkjet meet your needs? The emergence of business-class inkjet printers has been one of the defining trends of the last two to three years. Business inkjets from Epson, HP, Canon and others consume less energy and have up to 50% lower running costs than laser devices.

4. Single Pass Scanners
Duplex scanners that scan both sides of a page in a single pass have filtered down from large A3 MFPs to small desktop devices. A great time saver, they also reduce the potential for paper jams.

5. Touchscreen Displays Smartphone-like displays improve ease of use, let you do more at the device and provide more opportunities for customisation. Samsung has taken this to its logical extreme and uses an Android tablet as the user interface on its MX4 and MX7 MFPs.

6. Entry-level MPS
The automatic monitoring and delivery of replacement supplies should mean you never again run out of toner, which, as you know, always happens at the most inconvenient moment.

7. Easy Budgeting
Today, you no longer have to pay through the nose for new consumables. There are other options. HP Instant Ink provides unlimited supplies as and when you need them for a small monthly subscription. Epson supplies some printers with extra large ink tanks containing enough ink for a lifetime. Should you need them, replacement cartridges are available for under a tenner.

8. NFC
Near Field Communication (NFC) is one of several wireless technologies offering convenient mobile printing/scanning and authentication. Samsung was the first to embrace NFC on printers. Other vendors have caught up and NFC is now becoming standard even on workgroup devices.

9. Cloud Connectivity
The ability to scan to and print from cloud services directly from an MFP touchscreen or mobile app is critical in today’s mobile, cloud-connected businesses.

10. Extended Warranties
The greater reliability of modern devices has enabled vendors to offer extended two- and three-year warranties – with or without strings. An example of the former is Xerox’s offer of an additional free year’s warranty for customers who buy a full set of genuine Xerox toner or ink within the last 60 days of an existing warranty.
