The best printer is… the one you don’t notice!

There are 2 situations at work when you notice your printer:

  1. When you’re using it
  2. When it’s not working

In the office, we have daily routines to prioritise our work and workflow systems to meet our deadlines; the hyper-organised will even allow time for the unexpected on each task or project.

The printer you notice the most is the one that’s a disruption to your routines and workflows because it’s not working for one reason or another; you then have to invest time in fixing it, time in which could have gone into hitting that deadline.

The printer you notice the least is the one that will work when you need it and just becomes part of your workflow.

Looking for dependable printers can be difficult, often because dependability and reliability are hard to measure. The best sources for reference to make the most informed decision are from 3rd party testing and reviews by professionals who have assessed the features and stress tested the device.
