7 Best Printers for Office Use in India (Canon, HP, Epson, Brother)

If you are planning to buy a new printer for your office or want to replace the old junk that works less and cries more, we have got you covered.

In this article, we will check out the best printers for office use. We will start with an affordable range of printers and will get to more sophisticated and faster printers that will suit everyone’s needs.

First, let’s understand the different types of printers and in what scenarios they are useful.

Types of Printers

  • Laser printer – It is a printer that uses a light beam to transfer text and pictures onto the paper. These are expensive but have a low printing cost. Offers the fastest printing speeds. Ideal for large and medium-size office setups. Suitable for Over 500 pages of printing per month.
  • Inkjet printer – It recreates a digital image by spraying ink onto paper. Uses a cartridge for ink and is usually available cheaper but the cost of printing is high. Suitable for home use with 10 to 100 pages printing per month. You can print more pages but the cost will be too high and it will be better to upgrade the printer to Ink-tank or a laser printer.
  • Ink-tank printers – It has an in-built mechanism to supply continuous ink(that also lowers the cost of printing). They are not so expensive and have lower printing costs than the Inkjet printers. Suitable for 300/400 pages printing per month.
  • Multifunctional printer – It is that type of printer that can do copying, printing, and scanning.

Couple of important things to know before buying a printer.

  • Print speed – The print speed tells you that how many pages you can print per minute.
  • Resolution – The resolution is one of the important aspects because the quality of the printed photos depends on it.
  • Print cost – Print cost per page can really impact long-term use and depending on your daily usage, you should decide how much you should spend on a printer.
  • Paper size support – The page size the printers will able to print.
  • Multi-function – Always check that the printer is multifunctional that is it can do all things like Print, scan, copy, color prints.

We are not including cheap printers for office use as the cost of printing with these can be over Rs. 1 per page and the printing capacity of the cartridge is very low. It is better to invest some money in a decent printer than to have tons of issues by buying a cheap office printer.

Concluding Thoughts

The Ink Tank Printers are pretty good if you don’t have a crazy high volume of printing, these are low cost and also have an option to print colored photos or PowerPoint slides with above-average quality.

The laser printers offer a speed and capacity advantage over the Ink Tank but some of these have a higher printing cost.  The Canon MF244DW is an excellent printer for high usage and the printing cost is also low.
