Laser printers utilize a special laser to produce an image that is electrically charged on a drum. Next, the image is rolled through a powdered toner. Using heat, the toner is bonded onto the paper. Laser printers are ideal for business applications that require high printing speeds to handle larger printing volumes. Other benefits include sharper text quality and longer-lasting toner cartridges. The two main disadvantages of laser printers is that replacement toner cartridges cost slightly more than an inkjet printer, and sometimes detailed graphics will not print as well.

 

The most popular laser printers today are manufactured by Brother, Canon, HP, Lexmark, and Xerox.

Other benefits of inkjet printers include the ability to print photo-quality images, suitable for occasional use in an office or home, and there many cost-conscious options. The two main disadvantages of inkjet printing are that the ink cartridges do not usually last very long, and printing speeds are slower compared to a laser printer.
