Inkjet vs Laser: Which Printer Should You Get?

If what you’re really asking is what type of printer should I get to stay productive at home and you know that you will generally print a mix of colored and monochrome documents, I recommend you get an affordable color laser printer. Laser printers are in it for the long haul and are more economical than inkjet printers. Laser printers use toner cartridges which print thousands of pages so you don’t need to worry about replacements anytime soon. Laser cartridges contain toner powder so you also don’t have to worry about the drama of running into dried or clogged ink at all!

Inkjet printers are machines that spray microscopic droplets of ink onto paper. Inkjet printers are generally cheaper, smaller, and can be used to print both text documents and high quality colored images, especially photos. BUT be wary of cheap inkjet printers as those will end up costing you a fortune later on.

Laser printers are machines that melt toner powder onto paper to create a print. Laser printers are more expensive than inkjet printers upfront and uses pricier toner cartridges but is still a more economical option in the long run with its overall lower cost per page, faster print speeds.

Let’s take a closer look at the strengths and weaknesses of laser and inkjet printers so you can make your next purchase with confidence.
