How to choose the best model with a laser principle of operation is described in this article. The topic will be closed by a review of the 15 best laser printers.
How to choose a good laser printer
To make a laser printer a real help, you should evaluate the following parameters when choosing:
- monthly load. This indicator characterizes how many copies can be made on the printer per month, so as not to increase the wear of its components. Accordingly, you should first calculate the monthly workflow of a house or enterprise and buy the model that can handle it.
- Paper size. Almost all modern printers are designed for A4 and smaller sheets with different weights and different types (paper, stickers, etc.), but there are also different models, for example, some devices can print on A3 paper.
- Speed — this is an actual indicator if you need to print a lot and quickly. For a home, 18–20 pages is considered a good value, and for an office, at least 25 ppm is desirable.
- duplex printing. This is a function that automatically makes a copy on both sides of the sheet without human intervention, which greatly saves time.
- Permission. For home printing, 600 dpi is sufficient, but in some cases, higher image quality is required, so in such a situation, you should make a choice based on your own requirements.
- Memory. If the printer is equipped with it, then it is easier for him to work with heavy documents such as PDF.
- Supported OS. Typically printers are Windows oriented, but depending on the needs of the user, some of them offer Linux, MacOS, and Android or iOS mobile systems.
- First page output usually the longest. For the home, this characteristic is not particularly important, and if we are talking about the office, then a good indicator should not exceed 15 seconds.
- Connection. It is carried out via a USB cable to one PC, LAN for use in a wired local area network or Wi-Fi for a wireless network. Which option is more convenient depends on the needs of the user.
