If people would have to pick one equipment or product that completely changed the way things were, it’s got to be a computer. Along with computers, there are a variety of equipment and accessories which were developed and one such device is a printer which serves multiple purposes. The main purpose of the printer is to take commands in the form of input and display the letters, characters, numbers, or pictures on a sheet of paper. The old printers used to be bi, and it was quite confusing to configure and run the printer. The modern-day printer, on the contrary, is more sophisticated, fast, and vary in size.
The small and compact printers are used in homes and offices while big printers are expensive and used for high-resolution color printing. The earlier form of printers was called ‘dot matrix’ which used to print one line at a time. As the technology got advanced, inkjet printers came where the ink is ejected from the cartridge as the paper rolls from the printer. The current popular form of printers are the laser printers where a laser beam is reflected from mirror to deposit ink on the paper. The four important characteristics of a printer are
- Color: Many users, both in homes and offices, require color print mostly when they want to display a picture, map, or graphs. The color printers not only print color but also black and white. The inkjet printers having both color and black and white cartridges are quite expensive.
- Speed: In homes, printers are used only sometimes when needed, but in offices, the volume of printing increases. The modern laser printers are faster and more expensive as compared to inkjet printers
- Resolution: The sharpness and clarity of print matter a lot, particularly in offices as they document and keep a record of things. The new printers are capable of printing a wide range of resolution
Printers provide lots of benefits and advantages to users. The businesses are going paperless all over the world, but still, there is a wide purpose of having printers and keeping a record of things. People use printers to print coupons, homework, pictures, personal documents, and notes. For many people reading on a paper is much easier than on a desktop or laptop. Students can print their assignments and submit them to the teachers, and teachers themselves use printers to print classwork and quizzes. In offices, printers serve a very important purpose in printing documents such as invoices and receipts. It is a fact that the printer is a necessity which is required according to work.
