Inkjet Printers are cheaper to by and more expensive to run.
Laser Printers are more expensive to buy and cheaper to run.
MFP Printers can be Ink-Jet or Laser and the same rules apply
Colour Printers are more expensive to run than monochrome (black Ink) printers.
An Inkjet printer is a great printer for a small amount of printing or colour proofing.
If you print 1000 copies of a document, you need a laser printer.
If you print 100 copies of different documents over a month, you can use an inkjet printer or a laser printer.
When you replace the toner in a laser printer eventually you will also have to replace the drum which in most cases
will be very expensive to the point that it is probably cheaper to buy a new printer that will be faster and cheaper to run.
In Australia I find that going to office works and buying a multifunction printer, HP or Brother or Xerox for under $400.00
will support most SOHO businesses. Never try to fix them, they are designed to be thrown away every 2 or 3 years and get a
newer, faster and cheaper replacement.
Sorry if this concept of throwing things aways upsets you, but it is reality, they are not made to last.
