I’d like to compare two printers we have experienced using. They are both injet but the difference is where the input stack is located. Input stack is where you place your paper and it’s usually located either at the back with its output bin in front of the printer, or, both input stack and output bin are located at the same place (front) where a roller will PULL each sheet to feed the printer.
Last year, we were using the printer where the input stack is the same as the output bin. We loved that printer because it gives the features we wanted for the price much lower than most but when we were printing about 150 pcs of brochures using photo paper, the feed roller had a problem pulling the photo paper. Unless we do some pushing, it stopped working. Even with some pushing, it came to a point when it would stop in the middle of the page. I don’t know what the problem is but another printer has to be bought to finish the job.
That’s when we bought the printer where the input stack is at the back which naturally drops down the roller and outputs to the bin at the front. It’s not as quiet as the other printer but it got the job done. We figure that since it used the power of gravity, we need not have to push the paper to the feed roller in order to function well. The problem arose only, though, when we had to do a lot of printing using photo paper.
We are back to the old printer (we love it because it’s quiet and ink is much cheaper) and it has gone back to its new state (no pushing needed).
Just a point of consideration when buying a printer.
