Whilst they're a little slower than their laser rivals, inkjets are often a lot smaller and more compact; making them the ideal choice for a small home office.

I don't want to spend a fortune on cartidges, is ink expensive?

No. The truth is, ink cartidges cost a lot less to replace than toners. You're average black ink cartidges costs approximately £11 depending on size and make, toners can start from £30 and reach anywhere up to £100.  It is important to note however that ink cartridges are not always cheaper if you're printing in large quantities. For those printing 50+ pages a day, opt for a laser jet as the lifetime spend will be lower.

Once you’ve chosen the type of printer you want, the next question to ask is whether you want it to be anything more than just a printer. While there are a number of miscellaneous extra features that certain models may offer, the three big ones are duplex, scanning and fax.

Duplex is where the printer can print on both sides of the paper. This means you don’t have to manually print only the odd pages then return the paper to the paper tray to print only the even pages. Some printers have duplex built in, while many offer it as an add-on. Either way, it tends to be a feature that's available only on the higher-end models.

As for scanning and faxing, they tend to appear together in what are dubbed all-in-one printers. The scanner can either be a flatbed that allows you to scan anything, from books to bottoms (#officeparty), or sheet-fed models where you can feed in single sheets of paper. Along with a basic scan facility, such printers may also have a photocopy mode.

Due to their scanning abilities, many all-in-ones also include a fax facility, allowing you to scan and send off documents directly, without the need for a computer at all (phone lined needed!).

The single most useful extra on a printer is network connectivity, whether that be via a cable (Ethernet) or Wi-Fi. That said, many routers these days include a printer server facility that allows you to plug any USB printer into the router and have it share the printer throughout your home network. Whichever way you make it work, it's really convenient to be able to print from any computer in the home or office.
