Inkjet Printers

The Functions

Inkjet printers are a common choice for the home market, since they tend to be both inexpensive and easy to use. Inkjet printers use a number of ink cartridges to produce their output. Some printers use a black cartridge and a single color cartridge that produces all colors, while others use a black cartridge and separate color cartridges for cyan, magenta and yellow that mix to create other colors. At the time of publication, most inkjet printers connect to the computer via the USB port, but some older style printers still use a parallel port connection.
