Support for Third Party Printers and Peripherals

A wide variety of computer peripherals (printers, hard drives, etc.) cost less than $500 and are often purchased directly by departments, rather than by CIS. CIS sells some peripherals through the Computer Store. Staff and faculty are advised to consult with the Store or other CIS departments before purchasing peripherals with Reed funds.  If the Store does not offer a suitable product, CIS may be able to recommend one that will work well with the Reed computing environment and is most supportable by CIS staff.

It is rarely cost-effective to repair inexpensive peripherals. CIS staff can assist you in determining options for repair or replacement, but CIS generally will not cover the cost of repairs.
