Inkjet vs Laser: Printer Tech 101

Inkjet vs Laser: Printer Tech 101

Buying a printer can be like taking a stab in the dark if you don’t know what differentiates one from another. The most common types of printers are laser and inkjet, both of which come with their own unique pros and cons. There are also inkless printers. To add to your possible confusion, you’ve got your pick of standalone versus multifunction printers – and brand names like HP, Canon, Panasonic, Xerox, and Kyocera all competing for your business. To help you determine what will work best for you, here’s a quick rundown on the common printer types available.

Inkjet Printers

Among the most commonly used printer types in the consumer market, inkjet printers have a reputation for producing superior quality colour images and graphics. They can also be significantly cheaper when compared to other printer types. The versatility of the ink medium is conducive to printing to a variety paper types, including glossy photo-quality paper and more ornate, textured stationary – but inkjets are not as good at producing crisp black-and-white text, and their output is known to be slightly slower than others.

Laser Printers

The optimal choice in the small business or enterprise environment, laser printers use a powdery toner to print words and graphics onto paper. They’re also significantly faster than inkjet printers and produce much sharper results when printing text. However there are limitations with respect to the kind of paper that you can use. Because the nature of the toner printing method, laser printers require heat-sensitive paper. They’re capable of producing color images and graphics, but the quality of these is inferior to inkjets.

Inkless Printers

Not as commonly used as inkjet and laser printers but still widely available, inkless printers tend to be more lightweight and compact in design. One of the benefits of an inkless printer is that there’s no need to buy ink cartridges. The printing method is performed by combining a special kind of toner powder with static electricity to literally burn images onto a sheet of paper. The money you save on never having to buy another ink cartridge is offset by the cost of the required paper, which is a type capable of withstanding the heat generated in the printing process.

Standalone vs. Multifunction

Traditional standalone printers perform a single task, but these days multifunction printers combine a number of duties into a single device with a significantly smaller physical footprint in the office environment. Multifunction printers, also known as all-in-one printers, can come bundled with any number of functionalities. Some combine printing with scanning, or copying, or all three. There are also multifunction printers that have built-in fax machines. One thing to note is that not all multifunction printers come with everything included, and that you can save money by purchasing a printer/scanner combo if you don’t have a need for a copier or fax machine.

Brand Name or No?

Although there’s nothing that says you can’t achieve high performance with a printer that lacks a recognizable name like HP or Canon, you may want to consider sticking with a known brand. If for no other reason, doing so ensures easy availability of replacement parts and accessories. Warranties are also a lot simpler to exercise if the company you’ve purchased your printer from is still in business – and being able to drive across town to get to an authorized service provider is far more convenient than packaging your printer and sending it overseas if it needs warranty work.

As printers continue to evolve and their wireless capabilities leave them vulnerable to hacking, security features are also a major concern. Name brands are better at consistently delivering software updates, and some companies like HP have made it a chief priority.

Will the HP F2420 printer not work properly without both ink cartridges as with just black it´s not working?

With most printers, you are required and need to have ink in both the black and colour ink cartridges in order to print in black as color ink is needed in this process. They work in conjunction with each other. So you will need to have the both usable colour and black ink cartridges with ink and are not low, the same thing applies for colour. Ink is a lubricant for the print heads. Some colour ink is used even if you only print in black or vice versa. If you printed with a colour missing, you could destroy that print head from the friction of running without ink to lubricate it with the colour ink, no oil lubricant is used in doing this.

In the printer driver, there is an option for “grey scale” printing. That
should use only the black cartridge , but you also will need a usable colour cartridge installed for that option as some colour ink is also used.

Dried print Heads

I saw this question online, and as it is one I am often asked, I thought I would share here now!

I have an inkjet printer that I use very infrequently, say a couple of pages every 4 months or so. Due to the fact that it is so rarely used the print heads always need cleaning before use and I think that the ink also dries up. This means that I have to buy new cartridges often and makes the cost of printing too expensive. Can you please advise what would be a better printer to make things more economical?
R Piper, by email
One way or another all inkjets suffer from this problem and the easiest way to avoid it is to print off a few lines of text and a small, simple colour graphic every couple of weeks.
On printers where the print head is integral with the cartridge (most HP models for example), if you know you are not going to be using it for a while simply remove the cartridges, refit the protective covers and pop them into an airtight zip-lock bag until you need to use it.
If you mainly use your printer for documents then you may be better off with a low cost laser printer, prices start at under $85. Print quality is generally better than inkjet, they can be cheaper to run and there are no problems with dried out print heads.


Will ink refill kits work on a re-manufactured cartridge ?

Refilling Ink and Toner cartridges may not always be the best or cheapest way for you.

Refilling cartridges are simple enough, but at times refilled ink cartridges may work, but not always. Most printers will not recognize refilled ink cartridges, once the ink is exhausted, as the chip expires. Refilling them may be a costly gamble on your part. So to save you any grief and money possibly wasted, it may be advantageous on your part to just replace the ink cartridge. Using a non Genuine ink or toner cartridge would be cheaper and a much better option for you.
