A major question that most UPSC aspirants face at some point of time, is the need for a printer. With increasing amount of resources from the internet, the printing needs keep increasing. Until it makes sense to buy a printer.
Then there is the beginner's dilemma/mistake of buying a cheap inkjet printer - which has all of it Print, Copy Scan for around Rs. 2000-3000. The problem?
The inkjet cartridge costs too high and prints too little. But you mostly realise this once you have bought a printer.
What is the ideal printer? There is not one specific printer, which could be judged as best and all other as second best, but given the requirements of a Civil Services aspirant, we can zero in on two of them.
