Low initial costs and photo quality prints are two of the reasons to consider an inkjet printer. High quality inkjet printers, sometimes with six or more colour cartridges, are indistinguishable from photo lab printing. Newer models are also available with a variety of multifunction uses; such as scanning, reading directly from memory cards or printing to DVDs and CDs.

- Remember that the cheapest colour printer to buy will almost never be the cheapest to run!
- Buy a 2nd set of consumables now! Printers use/waste a lot of ink/toner the first time you turn them on, this is called a prime. You will save on couriers/petrol, often get a lower bundle price plus you won't be pulling your hair out in the middle of a print job trying to find a shop with the correct cartridges that won't rip you off!
- Find out how many printed pages you’re expected to get out of a cartridge and work out how much a black and white and colour page costs.
- What's the printer's "First Page Time Out" speed? This is a good check to see how much memory the printer has, and how much warming up time it will require before it starts printing.
- How many people will need access to the printer? This is an important consideration in choosing between buying a desktop model or a larger enterprise printer with network capabilities.
- Extended Warranties (Genuine only) can be a good idea if you always need a working printer - on-site warranties are generally better than "back to base" warranties for important printing, as they'll come and service your machine wherever it's located. A print head can cost $2000! Silly we know but it's too late to complain once your printer is out of warranty.
