There are a number of different printers on the market today, and the type that you get will depend largely on your needs and budgets. However, when you are buying a printer, you also need to look at the big picture. For example, you may be stuck between whether to buy an inkjet or a laser printer, and both of these have their own benefits. For example, you can get inkjet printers at really low prices these days, making them tempting for the shoestring shopper. However, a major disadvantage with inkjet printers is that the inkjet printer cartridges can run out quite quickly, and therefore you could end up making up the difference in cost simply through the purchase of replacement printer cartridges.
Laser printers are ideal for those that plan to print a lot of text-heavy documents. These printers offer high quality printing, and also offer increased speeds, which enable you to print off large quantities of text-filled pages quickly and efficiently. Another major advantage is that the laser printer cartridges, which are toner cartridges, last a lot longer than a printer cartridge. Once your laser printer cartridge runs out, you can replace the whole cartridge, which can be expensive. However, it is becoming common practise to have the cartridge refilled with toner, which is cheaper and more environmentally friendly. These cartridges may also have components inside them, and should the component require replacing, it can be remanufactured with the required components being replaced and the cartridge filled with toner.
The laser printer cartridge works in a different way to the inkjet cartridge. An inkjet squirts the ink onto the paper when it prints, whereas the laser cartridge fuses the ink onto the paper using heat. This can eliminate ink spillages during printing, and also gives precision and a great finish to documents. This also allows for printing on a variety of printing matter without any smudges or poor quality printing. You can also enjoy the benefits of laser printing if you want to print in colour, and adapted printers use three colour toners, cyan, yellow, and magenta, which combine to produce different colours.
Laser printers are the obvious choice for many offices and home office due to their speed and efficiency, and the ‘green’ attitude that millions of people have today along with increased awareness of laser printer cartridge options has seen a rise in the number of laser printer cartridges being recycled and refilled for use, and in the number of remanufactured cartridges being sold. There are a number of reasons why many individuals and companies have started to opt for remanufactured cartridges when it, and this includes:
Big savings: You can typically save up to fifty percent when you buy a remanufactured cartridge, and in the long run this can save you a small fortune on the cost of maintenance of your laser printer.
Hard wearing: A remanufactured cartridge often has far sturdier components, which have replaced the flimsier disposable components that came with it as a new model. The remanufactured version have durable components are designed to last.
High quality: Most remanufactured laser ink cartridges are tires and tested, and many come with the same type of guarantees that you would find with a new toner cartridge, so you get peace of mind as well as big savings.
Environmentally friendly: Over recent years, we have, as a nation, become more aware of environmental dangers and issues. These printer cartridges made up 40,000 tons of unrecycled waste in landfills last year – and that was just in America. Recycling saves on oil, tax-payers’ money, and resources.
