Laser Printers Buying Guide 


So why get a laser printer  instead of an inkjet?  Lasers may cost more money, but have many more advantages.  They offer speed and precision and are not too costly to maintain, making them an ideal pick for office or personal use.    

At a Glance 

  • How it works:  The term "laser printer" can sound a bit mysterious; text or images are produced by the direct scanning of a laser beam across the printer's photoreceptor. 
  • Who should use it:  Laser printers  are ideal for office  use, as they have a long life span and can often print a variety of documents in a fast and efficient manner.  Users can choose between black and white  or colour laser printers .  They are not normally recommended for photo printing , as sometimes the photo quality can be compromised.  
  • Price range:  Laser printers come in all prices, therefore there is a suitable model for everyone.  Basics can run as low as £50 and advanced models can cost up to £1000 or more.
