Editor's Notes

February 24, 2019:

Nobody said it would be easy. But if you're a dedicated Apple enthusiast, likely one of the reasons is that their overall ecosystem is just a bit simpler to use, and generally more user friendly. Printing should be the same. Of course, there are a couple common threads among printers in this day and age: first, they're generally pretty affordable, considering the advanced technology inside them, and second, that technology is essentially subsidized by the manufacturer's absolute insistence that you buy only their brand of ink for the device's lifetime. Printer developers actually go to great lengths to ensure that you do not use third-party ink. So, for best results, you'll almost definitely have to invest in the right cartridges or refills.

With that said, there are a couple noticeable disparate levels of printers. There are those offered for a couple hundred dollars, and sometimes much less; these, as some experts say, aren't meant for high-volume, professional use, but rather to provide a printing option that's just slightly less inconvenient than going to a professional copy store. The Brother HL-L2350DW, HP OfficeJet 3830, and Canon Pixma are good examples of reliable, in-home units. The Brother MFC-J6945DW is somewhere in the middle of the two groups, and does a pretty good job in mid-volume settings. Artists and photographers who want to maximize their creative output should consider the Canon TS9521C and Epson Expression XP-15000. As you start to get up into the hundreds of dollars, you may find reliability to sharply increase, as some users find with the higher-end Epson Expression. Finally, business ventures that rely on large, highly visible documents like signs and banners, should look at the wide-format Epson SureColor line, as it's one of the most reliable around.

Whichever you choose, make sure to download and follow the instructions as closely as possible, and don't be afraid to contact customer service can help. Most printers will work great with a little know-how and setup wizardry, but remember, a little patience will go a long way.
