We are back with the second edition of TechPP & HP Ink Advantage printer contest. The first edition was a stupendous success in terms of engagement & participation. If you didn’t win last time, no need to fret. You have yet another chance to win one of the two HP Deskjet Ink Advantage 5525 e-AiO printers and one of the ten HP USB Flash drives. And yeah, just like last time, all the answers can be found within this article.


Ideal Printer for home

Choosing the right printer for home is no easy task. Unlike offices & work places, printer usage at home will be considerably lesser. Moreover, maintenance cost will be of a greater concern for home users. So, broadly speaking, an ideal printer for home should have these two major features:

1. One that prints from your wireless device

Unlike workplaces, home users will not be in front of their desktops or laptops all the time. Hence expecting them to switch on their PCs in order to print something will be unfair. This is where wireless printing comes in handy. With wireless printing, users can print from smartphones or tablets. These days, many of the printers come with WiFi Direct technology, which doesn’t even require a WiFi router or access point to send the print command from any of your WiFi enabled device. With wireless & cloud based printing (ePrint), you can get rid of wires and print from anywhere. Here is a short video about how you can use HP’s ePrint technology to print from anywhere.

2. One that is affordable regardless of volume of printing

Typically, Laser printers are preferred in offices because they can print large volumes of text quickly and reliably. But for home usage, the volumes are much lesser. This is why many home users prefer inkjet printers. Moreover, cost of replacement ink cartridges for laser printers are considerably higher. New technologies like HP’s ink advantage cartridges specifically address this issue. Original HP cartridges for Ink Advantage printers can print up to 600 pages at Rs 449. And users can print virtually everything: essays, pie charts, or glossy photos.

Additionally, users can decide if they need an all-in-one printer. Over the past year or so, these all-in-one printers have become much more affordable. In addition to printing, users can scan, copy or even fax documents from a single device.
