Which printer should I buy: Inkjets vs. Lasers

Whenever you buy printers at any computer stores, some of you might be curious between Inkjet and laser printers. But sometimes, we don’t know which one is the best for us that’s why sometimes we end up buying something that isn’t really meant for our needs.  So the big question is, what’s the best printer for us? Inkjet or Laser?


Okay, so basically we have two major types of printers — the inkjets and the lasers. Each type has their own technology and advantages when it comes to printing needs so whenever you’ll buy a printer, you’ll have to consider and plan the usage of the printer that you’ll buy.


Inkjet Printers

When printing colored documents and pictures, it is best to print on an inkjet printer. Inkjet printers are recommended if you’re printing colored documents, such as photos on bond paper or at glossy paper. Another advantage of colored inkjets are its size. It comes in a more compact models which will fit in small spaces.


Laser Printers

Unlike Inkjet printers, laser printers are made for document printing. Even an entry-level monochrome laser printer can print pages faster and its powder in laser consumables has a longer shelf life. Some laser models are on par with Inkjet printers when it comes to speed but laser printers are preferred over inkjets because when printing documents, small texts tend to be heavier when printed on laser printers. Oh and yes, laser printers are much cheaper compared to inkjet printers.


What should you get?

That’s the big question. So what should you get? Well, you’re the only one who can answer that. If you’re planning on printing photos and colored documents then better choose an inkjet printer however, if you’re just into printing black-and-white documents, choose the laser printers instead.


Some of the monochrome laser printers available right now are Brother HL-1210W which is priced at PhP3,990 and has a print speed of up to 20ppm in A4 paper in 21ppm letter-size paper. However, if you’re aiming for an inkjet printer, you can get the Brother DCP-J100 that can also do copy and scan functions for only P4,950.
