Best Budget Laser Printers for Office & Home Use in India

Laser Printers are the preferred choice for heavy duty text printing. They may cost higher than the inkjet printers but their running cost is very low and they produce high quality and crisp text printouts. All the commercial offices and business always have laser printers installed at their place. Inkjet printers are only suitable for photo printing because they can print high quality images with great color reproduction and sharpness. But for document printing or text printing no one can outperform laser printers. Let us first learn about the advantages of laser printers in terms of text printing.

Advantages of Laser Printers over Inkjet Printers

Lower Printing Cost – Laser printers use toner cartridges that use dry ink in power form. The cost of refilling the toner cartridge cost only around Rs. 300/- and it can print around 1000 – 2000 pages (depends on the cartridge model). This is much cheaper as compared to inkjet printers which have high operational or running cost.

Crisp Text Printing – When it comes to text printing then nothing can beat laser printers. Inkjet printers are best in photo printing but for crispy and quality text printing laser printers are the best.

Virtually Maintenance Free – Laser printers are almost maintenance free because they use dry ink and you don’t have to clean anything. On the other hand, inkjet printers uses liquid ink which can dry out and then you have take printouts every day or two. Also if the head of the of the inkjet printers gets damaged then it is a very costly matter.

Faster Printing – When it comes to speed for quality text printing then laser printers are way faster than the inkjet printers.

Here in this post I will list down the best affordable laser printers that can be used for reasonable heavy duty printing for homes and offices. These laser printers are reliable and are known for high performance and reliability.
