Laser printers are known for their speed and precision when printing text, and although toner cartridges can be quite expensive, they last a long time and produce many pages, making them very economical as a whole. The laser printer is suitable for both home and office use, but the type of printer will depend solely on your requirements. They are often best-suited for office use because they can produce high quality text documents quickly and in very high volumes (depending on the printer properties). Laser printers adopt a certain type of printing process that is similar to the mechanisms used in a photocopier – this is how the printers can print so quickly and precisely.

What type of printer?

The type of laser printer you choose will depend on what your requirements are. For personal use, a low-end printer that can be print up to 200 pages per week would be sufficient. A small office environment would require a more advanced printer, averaging 1000 pages per week and 24 pages per minute (PPM). At the other end of the scale, the high-end printers can print around 700 pages per minute – these would be expensive printers used for large production companies.

Print Resolution

The average resolution for a laser printer is around 600DPI (dots per inch) – this resolution would be suitable for everyday use in the home. Printers at the higher end of the scale can go up to 2400DPI but this would only be necessary for large production companies and large offices. The higher the amount of dots per inch (the amount of dots that can printed across one line across the span of one inch), the better and sharper the printing quality.

Paper Weight

Most people purchase a printer to print pages of text but also with the intention to print labels, greeting cards and whatever else. The gsm is the measure of paper weight, and you?ll need to find out what your printer is capable of handling in terms of weight if you are wanting to print on different types of paper. The weight of metric paper is given in grams per square meter (gsm): normal office photocopying paper is usually around 100gsm whereas a piece of card would be around 220gsm. Find out the paper weight your laser printer can handle before you go ahead with the purchase to avoid any disappointment if you are using it for more than usual paper printing.

Double-sided Printing

Double-sided printing is very useful – it saves paper and can be more efficient, but most printers won?t have duplex printing capabilities so make sure you find out if your printer has this function if this is an important requirement. You can also purchase optional duplex printing units for many printers so look into this if your printer of choice doesn?t have the function.

Paper handling

A printer for home use won?t need any additional paper trays but for office use you may want the option of additional paper trays for large volumes of printing. You?ll need to make sure your printer has the functionality to add extra trays if you need them.
