There are a number of things people need to keep in mind when shopping for a printer - including the cost of ink cartridges, it has been suggested.

David Strom writes in an article for Network World this week that there are many options buyers face when looking for a unit that will serve their needs at a cost that suits their budget.

He noted that although the prices of printers have fallen over the years, there is still a wide range to choose from - such as those offered in the Lexmark E series.

"There are several nice things about these Lexmark printers," Mr Strom explained. "They are quiet and compact and run for years with no trouble."

However, he adds that these are monochrome-only models and colour printing will require a little more thought.

"My favourite series of printers are the Xerox Phasers that use solid ink sticks that look a bit like crayons."

Models in this particular range include the 8400, 8500, 8550, 8560 and 8860.
