Printers 101: Supertanks! No, they don’t wear capes (2/6/21 Part 1)

Sam Show Archives, Topics

For the longest time there were two kinds of printers you could get: inkjet printers and laser printers.

Printer Updates!

Inkjet printers were generally inexpensive but the ink would cost you an arm and a leg, get used up quickly, and would print fairly slowly. Laser printers would cost you an arm and a leg, and while getting toner would be pretty expensive up front it would last a long time.

A few years ago printer companies came out with a new type of inkjet sometimes called a “supertank” printer. Rather than having to go out and buy ink regularly, you’d get a large tank for each ink color that would only need refilling once in a great while. And the refills are cheap! But, these new printers are not.

We take a look at these supertank printers! Are they right for you?
