Laser printers are machines used to print text or pictures, usually linked to a computer. They guarantee high quality and much faster printing than inkjet printers.
Laser printers come in a range of sizes suitable from personal use to sit comfortably on a desk with your other computer equipment or much larger, more industrial versions for use in large or busy office environments.
Although laser printers can sometimes be slightly more expensive to purchase than inkjet printers, the toner in a laser printer lasts much longer than the ink in inkjet printers so the return on investment is better in the long term.
Types of laser printers Black and White Printers – These printers do not cost as much as colour printers and are ideal for office printing requirements. Black and White printers work exactly the same way as colour ones but do not require the colour toner for operation. Because of this, they usually are able to work faster and produce more prints per minute. They are ideal for everyday use. Colour Printers – These devices give an option to print out full-colour materials but are usually more expensive than black and white printers. They use 4 toners at the same time (cyan, magenta, yellow and black) which can increase the cost of maintenance and slow down the printing process slightly, but they guarantee high-quality full-colour effects. Most colour models however, have an option to choose between colour or black and white printing, making them more cost efficient again. Multifunction Laser Printers – Multifunction devices are designed to cover a multitude of requirements. Besides printing, they can also scan and copy documents which gives you the benefits of not only saving money from having to purchase 3 seperate devices but also reduces the space required to store them all. Multifunction devices are the most expensive option but guarantee maximum usability.
