If you need a UV LED printer, you have two options: you can buy a used LED printer or a new one. While the used UV LED printer may be less expensive, it may not be the best value in the printer world. Here are the reasons a new printer is a better option for your business than a used UV LED printer purchased on the secondary market:
As you know, technology is always improving, and this is especially true in the printer world. Even a used UV LED printer that was made five years ago won’t be able to compete with a new one. Here are some of the advantages that the technology in new UV LED printers gives you:
When you buy a used UV LED printer on the secondary market, you don’t really know what you are getting. Sure, the previous owner can always claim the printer is like new, and in excellent condition, but just like with a used car, it’s pretty easy for the seller to hide important details from you. So instead of getting to use your used UV LED printer worry-free, you might end up with huge costly repairs for damage that you didn’t even create. Not only do our new UV LED printers include warranties, but you can also opt for an extended warranty avoiding some of the need to invest any funds into repairs.
If you are looking to test the UV LED printer technology in your business or looking for a way to limit your initial investment, contact the manufacturer directly. Manufacturers may have machines that have gone through the quality control process again, similar to buying a certified pre-owned vehicle. At DCS, our Platinum Program is the ideal fit in these situations.
Even though a purchasing a used UV LED printer on the secondary market may seem like a better deal upfront, you may spend a lot more time operating the system, and a lot more money keeping it running. Not only that, but the UV LED printer that produces the superior product (the new one) will pay for itself tenfold in repeat customers and a five-star reputation.
