Laser toner printers are not just used in the office but in many homes too, across Ireland. There are basically 2 types of laser printer, colour and mono (black and white). The mono printers use a black printer toner and are mostly used for document printing in the office where colour is not required and is a fast and cost effective way to produce black and white printing.
The speed of the printer by far out performs any inkjet printer and the paper tray will also allow the printer to hold much more paper than an inkjet printer. The initial outlay for a mono printer will be considerably more than that of an inkjet printer and the toner will be more expensive than the inkjet cartridges but the advantages of speed outweigh is negatives. The most cost effective way of running a laser toner printer is to use compatible laser toner.
Most of the leading brands are available such as HP, Brother, Canon, Samsung, OKI and Epson. The savings on average with using a compatible black printer toner is typically around 40% and this can make a huge difference to an office budget for toner across a year.
The colour laser printers will use four colours of laser toner consisting of black, cyan, magenta and yellow. The advantage of the using the four colours is that you are able to replace single colours as they run out. Again, the initial purchase price of the printer will be high and there are different grades of printers from standard stand-alone basic colour printers to full blown networked photocopiers. The running costs of a colour copier will be high so special attention needs to be paid to cost of the laser toner. The compatible laser toner cartridges for the four colours should again produce savings of around 40% on average and this will produce savings that will help the printer pay for it in the coming years. Buying the lasers online is always going to get you the best deals with some online suppliers offering low cost next day delivery or even in some cases free laser toner cartridges.
Generally speaking there are no down sides to using compatible laser toner. There may be sometimes issues with the quality of the colours, for example you are trying to reproduce exact corporate colours on your logo for headed paper but for general-purpose every day printing they are fine. The compatible printer toner is widely used on a daily basis in offices, schools and just about everywhere that has a laser toner printer.
