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 - January 4, 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 Maxify IB4060

The Canon Maxify IB4060 is a great buy at the moment if you are after a more high end inkjet printer. The only drawback that I can see is the physical size of these printers as they are quite large. It is a multifunction, print, scan and copy with full wireless capabilities.The IB4060 uses 4 individual cartridges and these printers work like a charm with generic ink cartridges

The Canon Maxify IB4060 is capable of high speed, double sided prints and using the huge generic cartridges they are incredibly cheap to run. Be quick cause they will sell out fast at this price.

$229-00 at The Good Guys

Canon PIXMA MG5760

The Canon MG5760 is another great printer with all the features. With full print, scan and copy features as well as wireless capabilities these are a great deal. Work brilliantly with generic ink cartridges.

$69-00 at BigW

Canon Pixma MG5760

The Canon MG5760 is another great printer which we highly recommend. We use them here in the Ink Hub office and I love them.

The inks are cheap and once again they work perfectly with generic inks.

  $59-00 at JB Hi-Fi


Brother MFC-J880DW

The Brother MFC-J880DW is also on special at the Good Guys. This is also quite a good printer and very cheap to run. This printer is a multifunction Print / Scan and Copy which uses 4 x LC 233 cartridges. We have these for $29-70 per set so they are a very cheap printer to run and they work perfectly with good quality generic cartridges.

$139-00 at Good Guys

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
