- 21 May, 2021
Are you considering buying a home printer? Not sure whether to choose a laser or inkjet printer? What will the running costs be? You will find the answers to these questions in this article.
Inkjet or laser printer?
When you ask yourself this question, you need to consider how often you print and what you print. If you print sporadically and not much, and you care about good-quality color prints of photos or pictures, then an inkjet printer will be much better. A laser printer is better for printing text documents more frequently. Also take into account that laser printers are usually larger than laser printers. Before buying, make sure you have room for more equipment at home.
Advantages of an inkjet printer:
- high quality of color printing (photos, pictures)
- lower cost of the printer purchase
- lower cost of purchasing ink cartridges
- smaller device size
Disadvantages of an inkjet printer:
- higher operating costs
- the ability to dry the ink
- slower printing
Advantages of a laser printer:
- fast printing
- lower operating costs
- longer service life of the cartridges
Disadvantages of a laser printer:
- higher purchase cost of a laser printer
- higher cost of toner cartridges
- poor quality of printed photos and images
- larger device size
