Which printer is best - laser or inkjet?

Laser and inkjet printers do similar things, but use different methods. Inkjet printers are cost-effective, compact, and ideal for everyday home use They’re especially good at printing out photos and work documents that don’t have too many pages. They work by spraying high-pressure jets of liquid through tiny nozzles onto the page, and the ink is stored in foil printer artridges that can easily be replaced when they run out. Need lots of stuff printed quickly? Go for a laser printer. They can print off around 10 pages per minute, and they work by scanning and fusing images to paper using tiny specks of powder from the toner cartridge. It’s all done with laser precision, so your printouts are crisp and sharp.

What are the different types of printers?

As well as inkjet and laser printers, you’ve got other types to consider.
If you’re planning on using your printer for lots of different things (reports, essays, graphic-rich design projects, travel tickets, holiday snaps photos), then an
all-in-one printer could be just what you need. As well as printing, they also come with a built-in scanner and copier. All-in-one printers come in both inkjet and laser printer types. Want to print on both sides of the page? It’s called duplex printing, and most new printers have this feature. If you want to get creative, a 3D printer gives you the power to print out your designs as actual real-life object. From custom phone cases to prototype machinery parts, it can make complex manufacturing tasks easy – and lots of fun.

With a wireless printer, you don’t need to be connected to a computer. Instead, you can wirelessly connect to your smartphone , laptop or other compatible device, and hit the ‘print’ button from anywhere in your home.

What are the different types of scanners?

Our document scanners can save you lots of time and paper, as you can simply scan and save imp large documents on your computer (or in the cloud), rather than printing out physical copies of anything and having to store them somewhere in your home.
