After going through the breathtaking research,hp310 has got 2nd positions in this list of best printers for home use in India.

But what, before going further I have a question for you.

Does the khach-khach noise of printer irritate you?

Because the above printer makes this noise which is quite disturbing but you gonna love this wireless(USB, Wired, App) printer as it has got the power to remain silent and print smoothly like you never used the printer.

Giving tough competition to the above one, this HP 310 is not less than the pixma 3000 in any way.it has got all the features the same as pixma 3000, but you sometime you may see connectivity problem or the slow speed when printing through a mobile USB.

This printer is not wireless and work only with USB, and the another biggest loophole of this printer is that it doesn’t support macOS, which is one of the two main OS, which forced me to put it in the 3rd position.

Not like the other, its ink tank was inside the printer because of which it takes less space in your room/office and makes it easy to movable without any disturbance.

Apart from these, you may see paper jamming when using cheap 65gsm paper, so be sure to use quality paper like 75gsm paper.

Buying Guide: How to Buy Best All in One Printer For Home

Buying a printer is like making an investment so it is really important to know what kind of printer you need or what feature you want. Do you want an inkjet vs ink tank? wireless or non-wireless printer?

Go through this home printer buying a guide which will help you to select what kind of printer you should buy.

Inkjet vs ink tank

Inkjet vs ink tank?which is the best all-in-one printer for home use in INDIA
Inkjet vs ink tank

Let first understand what is difference between inkjet and ink tank printer.

inkjet printer as the name suggests is a printer equipped with a cartridge(ink is filled in the cartridge) which sprays ink on paper whenever your printer.

whereas ink tank printer has a tank(inside or outside the printer) in which ink is filled and whenever you print this ink through the pipe is sent to the printhead which prints on your paper.

the print quality of the inkjet and ink tank is almost similar but the major difference in them is its cost.

inkjet printers usually come at cheap prince(starting from 2500 rs) whereas ink tank printer is more expensive than inkjet(but less expensive than laser printer).

But don’t be fool

Inkjet printer initially comes at cheap price but in long run, it will drain your pocket because of the followingreason:

  • Per-page cost is very high(usually 6 Rs for B&W whereas 8 Rs for colour print).
  • It can print a maximum of 150 pages(until you refill the ink again).
  • Ink refill is quite complex.
  • Its ink/cartridge is very expensive(starting price 700 Rs).

So it is recommneded to purchase a inktank printer if you can affords as in the long run they will save your lot of money.some of the main feaure of inktank printers is:

  • Per page cost is very low(usually 8 paise for b&w whereas 20 paise for color print).
  • It can print more than 5000 pages in one refill(until you refill the ink again)
  • Ink refill is simple that even a 7-year-old child can refill ink.
  • Its ink/cartridge is cheap(starting price 400 Rs).

Connectivity

As the technology changing, printers are also changing.gone the days when you have to connect USB cable to printer for printing of your resume.now market have printer with wireless printer which can print directly from your smartphone or even by command(using Alexa or Google home)

so if you do not like to too many cables or you hate everytime switching on your pc/laptop to print your vacation photo,than go for wireless printers.

Budget

Budget is the major point for indian.we want a product which can give as many as features in low cost.

so if your pocket doesn’t allow to buy printer with advance fatures,then it will be wise decision to compromise with one or more feature(like you can buy non-wireless printer which are cheaper than wireless printer).

Resolution

When buy a printer then you should look upon the resolutin as you do not want your vacation photo to be dull.above listed printers are good but the epson printer is the winner when we talk about resolution.

Speed

I don’t think speed major concern(untill or unless you gonna print 100 or more page in one time) .

so no worry about it.

Safety tips:avoid going to service centre again and again

Ok !so you bought a printer…but wait!

Do you know how to keep a printer safe so that you don’t have to call to the service center? as most people complain that their printer stops working after 3 months or print is not clear.

Go through these tips and avoid a mistake like other people make.

What to do when printer deliver at your doorstep?

Usually, most of the people try to set up their printer by themselves, and nothing wrong with that. if you are an experienced guy with a printer or technical man than go for it. but if you are someone with no knowledge about printer than give a call to the printer brand company. their technical guy will set up your printer free of cost.

Use

Many guys make the mistake to leave their printer for months without using it which is a big blunder you can make with your printer.

Your machine cartridge/ink can jam or dry if you leave it for months without use. the brand recommends(i too) to use a printer at least once or twice a week to avoid this problem.

Where to Keep

keep your printer away from sunlight and heat as it hates it.try to leave some space around it.

Protection

Usually, many people leave the printer without covering it which is another big mistake.keeping a printer without cover cause dust to enter inside the printer.so it is recommended to use a dustproof printer cover.

Print Quality

Using a printer with low-quality paper is a bad thing as it gives you bad quality print(and people blame that it is the fault of the printer).so use a 75 gsm page for b&w print and 200 gsm glossy paper for color print.

Conclusion

so you are still with me.

Then I think I should give you bonus.

Well doesn’t matter you buy a dustproof cover or not.but it is advisable to buy an extended warranty card within 3 months of purchasing a printer.

As it will increase the lifespan of your printer and you don’t have to go to the service centre as the technical guy itself will visit your doorstep to pick up and deliver your printer in case your printer has got some problem.

So happy buying and please let me know which printer you have selected.
