Having a printer can come in very handy when studying from home, particularly if you like to highlight text and write notes on top. In this post we will go through the best printers for studying at home in 2022.
Before going through the list, it is important to highlight few things to consider before buying a printer for home use as a student. Those were used to put the list together:
- Features: a printer for home studying doesn’t need all the extra features that professional printers offer (office/work environments). Unless you need it for more professional purposes, e.g. photography studies, large size planning papers etc; a basic printer will cover all your student needs.
- Price: a printer for studying at home doesn’t need to be expensive, but neither too cheap for two reasons. Firstly, you don’t want to fall into the buy cheap buy twice category. Secondly, generally a cheap printer results in higher ink/cartridge costs and vice versa. Basically, an overly cheap printer will most likely cost you more in the long run.
- Multiuse: a basic student printer doesn’t mean it should only print. Having a dual printer and scanner can be very useful to scan and send official documents.
- Ease of use: A basic printer for studying at home must be easy to set up and use. Even better if wireless so that you could link it to your devices and send everything you need to print easily.
All printers below are available on Amazon UK. As usual, I left a direct link for each so that you can check current prices, reviews, features and other information you might need to select the best printer for your home studies!
