The first price of an inkjet printer is a huge benefit, but the
disadvantage is the cost of the ink cartridges. On the other hand, an
ink cartridge will likely have a standard capacity of only a few hundred
pages. However, this is not the case with laser printers as their
cartridges last a lot longer.
Speed: Inkjet printers
are not slow, but laser printers are faster. If you find yourself always
printing, then an inkjet printer will be double the time you spend
waiting as well as dramatically increasing your costs.
Longevity: The price of a
printer is beneficial, but that they are often not built to last. If a
part in your printer breaks, it can often be cheaper to simply buy a
whole new printer rather than fixing the individual part. However, laser
printers are proved to last longer.
Laser printers can print typical colour output, photographs and other
documents that require fine control of colour with a tone better than
other printers. Black-and-white laser printers are also more prevalent
than black-and-white printers that use other technology.
Laser printers work decently with many types of paper; they work poorly
with special papers. You need to use specially designed laser papers for
anything different or you risk damaging your printer.
Costs: Lasers aren’t
the cheapest option, especially for small businesses that need colour
output. This shows that inkjet printers can prove more reliable as you
can buy them at a lower price than a laser printer.
Costs: SSD’s are quite
new in the computing game. As with any new technology, the defects are
still being sorted out. They are more expensive than traditional hard drives.
However, they offer less storage space than traditional hard drives and
hard drives are cheaper.
Speed: One reason SSDs
have been slow to catch on is that most of these new drives have slower
write speeds. Traditional hard drives have almost-unlimited write
cycles, meaning that data can be erased and written over and over, but
SSDs write cycles are more limited.
storage capacity: Current SSDs in the market have limited storage
capacity. Computers or devices with an SSD storage system usually have a
base storage capacity of 128GB. Although there are solid-state drives
with a capacity of 4TB, they can be considered very rare and expensive.
A hard drives contains lots of moving parts inside. This means the hard drive
could be damaged easily. Flash memory, including solid-state drives,
does not have this problem as these drives doesn’t have any moving
Speed: Hard drives
have a slower speed than any form of flash memory. A hard drive takes a
short time to access the correct location of data, whereas solid-state
drive accesses data very quickly.
Size: Hard drives
typically come in two sizes, a 3.5-inch drive mainly used in PC’s and a
2.5-inch mainly used in laptops. Small USB thumb drives, memory cards
and optical discs occupy less space around a computer than hard drives,
although they have lower capacities.
give off electric, magnetic and electromagnetic fields. There is some
controversy whether any of these pose a health hazard, particularly
magnetic fields. This is not the case with LCD monitors because there
are no allegations made against them about emissions.
of large and heavy. CRT monitors have a large size and weight, so it is
not suitable for narrow rooms. However, LCD monitors are considerably
lighter. This means that the monitor will be more mobile than a CRT
So that the eyes are not tired of using a CRT monitor, use refresh rate
over 70Hz. High end CRT monitors can offer 120Hz refresh rate up even
more. On the other hand, this does not apply to the LCD monitor as they
have a refresh rate that doesn’t affect the visual display.
Saturation: LCD have white
saturation; the saturation can occur due to the bright end of the
intensity scale becoming overloaded. Whereas, on the CRT monitors, the
bright end on the intensity scale does not become overloaded.
Sensitivity: LCDs are more
fragile than CRTs, touching an LCD screen with your fingers hard can leave
pressure marks that forever mar the display, touching a CRT with fingers
will simply leave fingerprints that can be cleaned off, if you break a
CRT monitor, you can get another for free or very inexpensively.
Speed: They have slow
response times. This is not the case with the CRT monitors as they
generally have fast response times.
has a very steep learning curve: This will take to get used to for
inexperienced users. However, Photoshop is a very simple software to use
and does not change too much features as time progresses.
is limited photo editing: Therefore, many people will use AI to
design their initial graphics and then they’ll finish up in Photoshop. This
would not be an issue in Photoshop.
does not handle pixel art: Not dealing with pixels can be a
disadvantage sometimes. You want to include pixel art and AI isn’t going
to allow you to do so. But, Photoshop is known for dealing with pixel
Expensive: The suggested
retail price for a Photoshop CS5 full license is $699, and $199 for
upgrades. There are many free and lower cost graphics and photo editors,
such as the GIMP, Picasa, Paint.net, and Photoshop Elements, available
for casual users.
Photoshop is a complex software designed for professionals. Casual users
can easily learn many of the basics, such as drawing and automatic image
adjustments. However, the more advanced features are not simple and
difficult to master
When an image is edited in Photoshop, that image is modified. You should
take care and make a copy of the original. Other programs, such as
Lightroom and Picasa, allow you to process and preview your photos
without destroying the original.
