WiFi Printing, What is it, and What are the Benefits? WiFi printers re all the rage now and have a number of advantages to a USB printer, or other wired printers. A wireless printer connects to a local wireless network and becomes a network asset that is available to any computer or other wireless device connected to the network. If you have a wireless printer, it can usually still be attached to a laptop and PC and be a single use stand alone printer though.
The main advantages to this are that you aren't limited by the physical distance of the wired connection any more. You can place a wifi printer anywhere that is convenient for you in your home. It also allows multiple connections to the printer network. So other users in your home call all print from their devices to the same printer.
Installing a wifi printer ins't as easy as a USB printer, but it is also not all that complicated either. To connect the WiFi printer your network in the same way you would connect your PC, laptop or other devices. Once it is on the network you may have to download some drivers on to your laptop. This again, isn't to hard. Printing off a mobile device is similar to this.
Bluetooth printers can some times be lumped into to WiFi printers, but they use different technologies and are not as compatible for multiple users to print from the printer.
Because of the newness of a wireless printer, they usually are a little more expensive than the USB and wired alternatives. But we feel they are defiantly worth the little extra cost.
Many places give out some good deals on cheap WiFi printers, but we feel that the best place to find these deals is at either Argos, or Currys. They have a wide range of brands and they cater for all budgets too. You can find some really cheap wifi printers, and some high end ones too. This goes for all the top brands they do. Brands like Brother, Cannon, HP and Epson.
Argos are great for being in most towns and cites and make it so easy to get hold of the things you need quickly and cheaply. They are perfect for first time home owners who need to buy a lot of things, but are very carefully watching the budget.
The range of WiFi printers they have is pretty good. If you're shopping for an office WiFi printer then it might be best shopping at a dedicated electrical store. Argos tend to cater for the low to mid range printers. But in this category, they are great at giving out really low prices and great sales. They often to a £5 voucher for orders over £50 and a £10 voucher for orders over £100. With there being so much to buy at Argos, you can see why a voucher for your next shop will always come in handy.
Currys are a dedicated election and home appliances retailer. So they are better placed to offer a more varied choice when it comes to different brands and budgets. Some of the best WiFi printers are sold at Currys.
One of the major plus points for shopping at Currys is the staff are trained to know what they are talking about and are really helpful if you are not to sure what you're looking for in a printer. They can help you decide if you need Apple Air printing, or Google Cloud printing for example.
