Why do Many Printers Come Without a USB Cable?

Many printers come without a USB cable for one or two reasons:

  1. The purchased USB printer maybe a replacement for an old USB printer. The manufacturer might choose not to include a USB cable under the assumption that the buyer may still have the old printer's USB cable.
  2. Another reason, printer manufacturers may choose not to include a USB cable in the printer purchase so that it can be bought separately. The advantage to this one is that you can choose affordable quality USB cables.
