I am deciding to get a new printer. I want a home printer that can be used for business as well. I am not sure whether to get an inkjet printer or a laser printer. I would like to know which one can I use that will make more savings in the long run. Which one would be better?
Which is best, an inkjet printer or a laser printer?
It depends on the purpose that you intend to do. If your printing activity is not in bulk then inkjet printer is cheaper; otherwise, a laser is cheaper. You can do estimates by the knowing the rate of printing each cartridge yield whether laser or cartridge.
Inkjet cartridges purge their nozzles to avoid clogging. This means that there is a waste of ink in a very small scale. The laser does not do that.
Normally, for simple printing, the manufacturers cover 15% of the page for inkjet while 20% of laser. For color documents, around 30 % coverage. At your level, the printing it is 3 to 4 times higher.
This is the reason why inkjet is good, in small printing. But if you are running a small business that uses printer many times, a laser printer is appropriate.
