Quality Comparison of the Most Popular Printer Brands this Year

When buying a printer, there are several key specifications that you should consider in order to find the best printer to suit your needs. Here are some points that must be considered before you decide to buy a printer:
  1. Speed: consider how many pages the printer can produce per minute (ppm). If you're going to be printing a fairly large amount, this is an important feature that you should make sure to have on the printer.
  2. Resolution: if you are going to print a document for business purposes, the clarity of the print results will be very important. Similarly, if you buy a photo printer, you must also observe the quality of the printed image first, lest the print results are not to your liking.
  3. Functionality: are you just looking for a dedicated printer to print documents or are you going to print photos too? If you want both, then an all-in-one printer with the ability to print documents and photos will be much more useful.
  4. Ink types and operating costs: if you will use your printer only to print documents, you can reduce usage costs if you choose a regular (black and white) printer without color. Color printers may offer more benefits but will require a lot of ink cartridges. The cost of ink cartridges is quite expensive is also something to consider before buying a printer.
  5. Output size: each printer is capable of printing documents and photos with various paper sizes according to their technical specifications, generally the larger the dimensions, the more expensive the printer will be.

Therefore, if you have decided to start looking for your ideal printer, consider the appropriate characteristics, it is needed according to the circumstances as described above first.

LaserJet vs Inkjet Printer Explanation

In general, laser printers are faster to process printing while inkjet printers produce sharper images. So to decide which all-in-one printer is best for your needs will depend on its intended use.

If you are going to be printing/scanning mostly text documents on a large scale, then a laserjet type printer is probably best. If your need is more for printing quality documents and photos, then you might want to choose an Inkjet printer.
