Bluetooth USB Adapters vs. New Wireless Printer
If you have a classical wired printer to the USB port, you can get for less than $50 the wireless printer. No need to bother with the wires, you can print while you are moving and even from the mobile terminals.
When you compare the price of the Bluetooth USB adapter, almost for the same amount of money you can buy the new wireless printer. My advice is to save a little bit more money and to buy the new wireless printer, because from $100 you can already find good wireless printers. If you have a great wired printer that you want to keep, then it is OK to buy the Bluetooth USB adapter and turn it to the Bluetooth printer.
