Bluetooth technology just continues to get better and better and it is amazing what you can get in the way of a Bluetooth printer nowadays.
With a Bluetooth printer there are no wires to worry about and not restrictions on where you can put your printer in the room. A Bluetooth printer allows you to be in another room, upstairs or even outside and still be able to print out documents if you want. Having a Bluetooth printer also allows you to share a single printer among several employees with no wires needed in an office environment. Shopping for the best Bluetooth printer for your needs can get a little confusing if you have never bought one before. There are all kinds of makes and models on the market nowadays. Many of them on the market now are multifunction printers. The multifunction printers can print, scan, copy and fax documents and photos. Your first priority when choosing a Bluetooth printer should be whether or not it is reliable. When looking for a wireless printer you should go online and read reviews about the Bluetooth printer you have chosen before you buy it. Make sure the make and model you choose will be compatible with your computer and other wireless devices. Prices on Bluetooth printers have come down a lot over the years. You can get a good Bluetooth printer for just a little more than a hardwired printer now. One thing you will want to keep in mind before you buy any kind of printer is the type of ink cartridges it will use. Look for a Bluetooth printer that uses an ink cartridge that has a high rating on the number o pages it will print. Most printers sell for very little these days because the manufacturers make their money off of the ink cartridges for them.
