Today, the arrival of new printer models in the market has become so rapid that what would have been the newest arrival would be phased out in only a few months. This rapid turnover has its benefits and drawbacks. On one hand, the prices of printer models tend to go down faster, making them relatively affordable for just about anyone. The downside of this is that the more newer models come out, the harder it is to find printer drivers, cartridges, manuals and other materials for old printer models.
Printer Manufacturer's Website
Printer manufacturers are aware that while there are newer models being released, many people still use older printer models. Unfortunately, there are certain materials such as drivers and manuals that tend to be misplaced. You can access these programs and materials over at the support page in many printer manufacturer websites. These are all easy to download and free of charge as part of their after-sales customer support.
Online computer stores
There are now a number of different online computer stores that would provide you printer ink cartridges, drivers and upgrades for most printers. On top of this, most online computer stores would also provide you articles containing information as to how to troubleshoot various problems that may arise with regards to your printer.
Another good place to download drivers for certain printer models is through various freeware and shareware websites such as Download.com. Many of the drivers here are also free to download and ready to install in your computer. Unfortunately, many of these drivers are often uploaded by other users of the website. This could lead to you downloading a driver or software program which is infected with a virus. It is a good idea to first scan the program after you have downloaded this to make sure that your computer would not become infected with virus or any other form of malware.
Online Auction Sites
If you are looking for printer cartridges but are unable to find them in your local computer shop, you can try checking out online auction sites for these materials. The good thing about online auction sites is that some of the products that are sold in auction sites over the Internet are offered in bulk. Not only would you be able to get huge savings out of this. Buying these ink cartridges would ensure that you would have a steady supply so that your work would not be hampered by suddenly running out of ink.
