Best Home Printer 2018 Australia

Written by on

Looking for the best cheap printer deals in Australia in 2018.  Looking for an Inkjet printer for your home or small business? Look no further as we will be listing all of the best buys but ONLY for printers which we recommend that are reliable and cheap to run! Instead of doing a load of Printer Reviews we thought that we would just suggest a few printers that we know are cheap to run, cheap to buy and reliable. The best value printer for ink replacement and actual printer purchase price can be found below, read on...

NEVER get sucked in to buying a cheap printer which only uses 2 ink cartridges. The printer ink for these type of printers are VERY EXPENSIVE and are usually not available in generics. 

Important: We strongly recommend when buying an inkjet printer not to spend too much money as the average life of a printer nowadays is between 1 - 2 years. Most often inkjet printers will die due to print-head failure or the drive gear wearing out. There are almost always good multifunction printers available on special for around the $60 - $80 mark if you shop around.

 

This weeks best printer buys - September 3, 2018

Canon PIXMA MG5765

The Canon MG5765 is a great buy at the moment. It is a multifunction, print, scan and copy with full wireless capabilities.The MG5765 uses 5 individual cartridges and these printers work like a charm with generic ink cartridges

$69-00 at Officeworks








Canon PIXMA TS5060

The Canon TS5060 is a great buy at the moment. It is a multi-function, print, scan and copy with full wireless capabilities. The TS5060 uses 5 individual cartridges and they are readily available in generics at only $43-90 for the full set of high yield cartridges.

At $89.00 you get a full set of inks included which are reasonable yield. These are a very popular little printer and should be good for a couple of years of trouble free printing. The beauty with this printer is that it is full multi-function but very compact in size. If size is an issue then this is the printer for you.


Brother MFC J6530DW

The Brother MFC J6530DW is currently on special at the Good Guys for $248-00 which is a really good buy. The Brother printers are great work horses and usually have a bit longer life than most modern inkjet printers.

The Brother MFC J6530DW is a more high end, quality inkjet printer with all the bells and whistles to run your small business or office needs. The MFC J 6350DW uses the LC3319XL cartridges which we sell for under $60-00 for the full set, this price will drop to around $30-00 within the next month or so. This is perhaps one of the cheapest inkjet printers on the market in regards to printing costs.

The only known issue with these is that the black print nozzle can clog if the printer is not used regularly. This is a common issue with all Brother inkjet printers however if used regularly it may never occur.

Some of the features of this printer include fast print speeds, Double sided printing, Fax and full Wi-Fi capabilities. I would highly recommend this printer if you are in the market for a high end inkjet printer that is reliable and cheap to run when using high quality generic cartridges. 

The Brother MFC J6530DW is a very impressive looking piece of equipment however be warned as it is physically quite a bit larger than the average inkjet printer. If space is not an issue then it's worth taking a look at this printer, you are sure to be impressed. 

$248-00 at The Good Guys



Brother HL-L2305W Mono Laser Printer

If you want a great little printer that's cheap to buy, cheap to run and prints at high speeds then the Brother HL-L2305W is the printer for you. It is a Mono-Laser printer which means that it only prints in black and white which makes this printer ideal for the small office or home use.

I actually just purchased one for our office to print out the eParcel labels. This printer is ideal for labels etc as the laser printout is very water resistant (unlike inkjet printouts). The Brother HL-L2305W is also quite compact in size and it works perfectly with generic toner cartridges.

When using generic toners this printer is perhaps one of the most economical printers on the market. Using our High Yield Brother TN2350 toner you can print up to 5,200 pages for only $52-90. Hows that for value?

HL-L2305W Only $98-00 at Officeworks



Some advice when buying a printer

One point I cant stress enough when buying a printer at your local Officeworks, Harvey Norman or any other large store is dont believe all of the advice that you are given. The number of people we get ringing up who have been fed the wrong information on printers is rediculous.

I always tell people that the amount of training that most of these sales people have is only very basic as they have a huge range of products that they need to cover so their actual knowledge of various printers is minimal.

This is in no way a criticism of these folks as I am simply trying to get accross the fact that we are talking everyday of the week to customers Australia wide so we know what works and what doesnt. Also we know which printers are cheap to run, easy to use and reliable so PLEASE take our advice on the printers we recommend.

We strongly recommend any of the above printers as they represent great value and reliability as well as economical printing. If you would like further advice on inkjet printers call Ink Hub: (08) 7324 3065
