When it comes to buying a budget printer, it is important to consider the total cost of the device including the page yields of ink and toner cartridges, as well as the costs of different types of paper.

That is the suggestion made by Justin Yu on Cnet.com recently, when he claimed that it is also important to think about how many pages you expect to print each month and the optional features that you may wish to use at a later date.

Explaining the difference between laser and inkjet printers, he noted how laser devices use "bulky" toner cartridges that are usually reserved for business users because of their speeds and costs.

The printer expert added that there is more versatility on offer with inkjet devices for printing detailed photographs, web prints and greeting cards.

"Shopping for a budget printer doesn't have to be an exercise in anger management and self-abasement," Mr Yu wrote on the website.

"Contrary to the stigma, many printers can produce great-quality photos and documents without breaking the bank or eating up expensive consumables."

Recently, Mr Yu suggested that the Canon Pixma MX330 is a versatile ink cartridge printer that can deliver a number of features without costing a fortune.
