If you are looking for a printer at home or in the office that balances speed and print quality with affordability, you want an inkjet printer.

The best inkjet printers use drops of ink to create digital reproductions of digital images and to use ink cartridges for the prints.

These cartridges are available in black and in color and many inkjet printers can easily handle both monochrome prints and color prints.

They are cheaper to purchase than laser printers, but you want to include the costs of replacement ink cartridges. This costs sometimes more than the printer itself!

However, there is a growing number of brilliant inkjet printers that keep their ink slurry to a minimum. In our best manual for inkjet printers we show you the very best choices. In addition, our price comparison program ensures that you get the best deals for the inkjet printer of your choice.
