Resource summary

Output Devices
1 Monitor
1.1 The most common output device is the monitor or VDU. Modern monitors, where the case isn’t more than a few centimetres deep, are usually Liquid Crystal Displays (LCD) or Thin Film Transistors (TFT) monitors.
2 Laser printers
2.1 Laser printers are quite expensive to buy and run but produce a high quality output and are quiet and fast.
3 Ink-jet printers
3.1 Ink-jet printers offer black and white or colour printing with reduced levels of quality and speed. Colour ink jet printers are cheaper to buy than colour laser printers.
4 Dot matrix printers
4.1 Dot matrix printers are not so common today. They are comparatively noisy and low quality but are cheap to run and are used when carbon copies or duplicates need to be made, such as for wage slips. Also, they are useful in dirty environments such as a garage because they are much sturdier than the other two types of printer
5 Plotters
5.1 A plotter can be used to produce high quality, accurate, A3 size or bigger drawings. They are usually used for Computer Aided Design (CAD) and Computer Aided Manufacture (CAM) applications, such as printing out plans for houses or car parts.
