Printers and scanners are crucial computer accessories, but it can be difficult to figure out which is best for you. Fortunately, Walmart's great selection and Everyday Low Prices give you lots of options.
When choosing a printer, you'll have to decide whether you want an inkjet printer or a laser printer. Color inkjet printers are very popular because they're economical and can print practically anything, so they meet the needs of most home users. But a laser printer will generally produce sharper-looking text and images, and it has advantage of printing very quickly, making it a good choice if you often have to print large documents. And color laser printers are much more affordable than they used to be, making them practical for many home users.
When choosing a scanner, the main thing to consider is what you'll be scanning. If you'll be scanning pages from bound books, 3D objects, photos or material that can be easily damaged, you'll need a scanner with a flatbed. Make sure the scanner you choose has a large enough flatbed for the material you'll be scanning. If you need to scan multipage documents, get a scanner with a sheet feeder. For large documents, an automatic document feeder is very convenient.
If you need both a printer and a scanner, an all-in-one printer-scanner is a great option. Most all-in-one or multifunction printers also function as copiers and fax machines.
Whatever you choose, you can make Walmart your one-stop shop for all your electronics needs.
