Inkjet vs Laser

Why anyone would use an inkjet printer for anything other than the odd colour print is beyond me as, these days, a laser:

  • Is almost as cheap to buy, particularly for B&W
  • Is much cheaper to run
  • Is usually quieter
  • Is much faster
  • Will last longer
  • Uses about the same desk space
  • Is better made
  • Produces dry prints
  • Usually has a paper bin

Even those who insist on colour printing should investigate the current crop of laser options – the price seems to drop daily and a perfectly good device can be bought for about £160, even on the High Street dealer’s web sites.
