For a start there are a lot of people that seem for wireless portable printers as well as against them for a multitude of reasons. Now there’s no doubt that there are wireless portable printer disadvantages but I hope there are enough benefits to outweigh these.
For a start a lot of people that have issues with these types of devics are simply because they aren’t doing their homework, and end up picking a model totally unsuited to their life style. When you’re picking a piece of technology like that, you need to take a real in-depth look at what you’re actually getting. Will it work for you? Is it within budget? A lot of questions need to be asked and answered and you must remember that people use these mobile wireless printers for a lot of different reasons. This means that there isn’t an all singing all dancing printer out there that does it all, because each printer can be tailored to an individual’s needs.
What does this mean?
Well you might think that a printer with more functions and capabilities would clearly trump that of a printer with less abilities. What you have to consider though, is that actually a model such as this, sure, may do more but at what cost? Heck, I’m not just talking about money, althowugh it will cost more, I’m talked about size and mass. This means that a device that can ‘do it all’ will not only cost substantially more but it will also be more bulky and weigh more. This means that again, some people may find this suitable if it corresponds to their uses. But I can bet you some won’t find it useful at all if they’re carrying it around in a bag all day. For that person clearly something smaller and lighter would be far more practical.
This is one of the wireless portable printer advantages which I love so much, because unlike most technology there isn’t a spectrum going from ‘best to worst’. Although I’m not saying some aren’t better then others, but what I am saying is that the ‘better’ the wireless printer is, the bigger and heavier it is. It’s a sacrifice some may be willing to pay, but definitely not everyone, which is why there is no ‘Best Wireless Portable Printer‘ – because it’s a delicate balance which you need to weigh up when finally picking the model that’s right for you.
Now, there are alot of different types of wireless portable printer connections to choose from meaning that for your device, presumadly a laptop, smart phone or PDA only certain types of wireless connectivity will operate, and so picking a wireless portable printer with the right types of wireless connections is vital.
