What to Look for with All in One Printers

All in one printers have become amazingly popular and widespread today. In fact, the majority of printers on the market today don't just offer printing services, they offer a collection of capabilities, including faxing, scanning and copying. If you'd like to have a range of great features offered from one small device within your home, then all in one printers will be for you, and here's what you should be looking for when you are shopping for a purchase.

All In One PrinterThe first thing you need to know is that all in one printers are typically either built as 3-in-1 units or 4-in-1 units. The standard 3-1 functionality will be printing, scanning and copying. Printers which offer 4-in-1 services add in faxing to that feature set. So as you search for a printer that's best for you and your home, this is where you need to start.

Do you need a fax for work? If you occasionally need to use a fax, could you instead scan and then email an important document? Answering these questions will allow you to move forward and start thinking about other features and options.

The next option to consider is whether you want all in one printers which are also wireless printers. Wireless printers connect to your home's wireless Internet, which means the printer can be placed anywhere in the house, and you can access it and print from anywhere else. This also allows multiple computers in multiple locations to use the same printer, and it offers great flexibility and convenience.

If you have a digital camera and like to print pictures, you can often insert a memory card straight into the printer, buy some photo paper of any size, and print up your photos directly from there. While all printers can print photos, not all of them come with this flexibility, and not all of them can print in super high quality. So consider whether or not this is a main concern or desired feature before you make your purchase.

The size of the printer that you select will also be important. Almost all of the leading all in one printers on the market today offer compact sizing in the range of maybe 18 inches in length and 15 inches in depth, while being only 6 or 8 inches high. Of course, all models will have different sizes and you'll need to be sure the model you get will fit in the space that you have allotted for it.

All In One PrinterHopefully by now you have a good idea about what to expect from all in one printers and what you should be looking for with them. First, decide whether you want a 3-in-1 or a 4-in-1, and then think about features such as wireless connections, photo printing and size. Don't forget to consider price and brand reputation as well, and after carefully evaluating all of the above, you'll be able to pick and choose which all in one printers are best for you.
