WHICH IS THE BEST CARTRIDGE PRINTER - INK JET OR LASER TONER?



The question of which printer is the best to buy - well there are a number of considerations, but namely what type of printer cartridge.

Like most things, money is a prime consideration in choosing the type of printer you want, and many inkjets are less expensive to begin with, and the cost of ink has come down and the efficiencies have gone up.  In addition to the cost of ink being lower, the cost of non-OEM (compatible) or remanufactured ink is also relatively low, and the quality is consistently improving, to where it is often impossible to differentiate. Inkjet printers also offer the convenience of individual ink cartridges for each color in many models, further adding to the cost-savings.
Besides the ink, many of the printers from today’s manufacturers like HP, Lexmark, and Epson to name a few, are able to produce laser-quality print output without the higher initial cost. While inkjets are not designed to print several thousand pages a month, a home/home office  isn’t printing that much to begin with. In addition, office-centric inkjet multifunction printers are able to provide the convenience of a document feeder, automatic two-sided printing, and the ability to do up to four functions (print, scan, copy, and sometimes fax) in one machine for a lower initial cost as well as to produce much better quality photos.
Lasers are particularly popular where larger volumes of printing are required, however. Laser printers do produce high-quality text and are certainly durable, though they do generally require a higher initial investment. The writers do mention that they thought the number of laser users would have been greater than the number of inkjets, but the results of the ongoing poll have not shown that to be true as of yet.
