Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

QWhat is duplex printing?
ADuplex printing is the ability to print on both sides of the paper - either simultaneously, or automatically turning the paper over to print on the other side. It means you can utilise both sides of the paper.
QWhat is Pictbridge?
APictbridge - or Direct Printing - is a system to allow users to print photos directly from their camera or phone, without having to connect to a computer first. This can either be done using a cable or wifi.
QWhat is an envelope feeder?
AAn envelope feeder allows you to load up a quantity of envelopes, which are then pulled into the printer to have addresses/names/etc printed directly onto them, rather than having to use labels.

Laser Printer Buying Guide

There are 2 main types of printers available on the consumer market - inkjet and laser printers. Both have strengths and weaknesses, and your choice will largely depend on what you plan on using your printer for. This guide will concentrate on information about laser/LED printers - for a detailed rundown of laser printers, please see the guide under the inkjet printer category.

Laser printers work by using a very fine laser to help minuscule particles of powdered ink (toner) ‘stick’ to the page in the shape of the letters and numbers to be printed. The page is then passed through between 2 heated rollers (a ‘fusing unit’), ‘burning’ the toner onto the page. Because the laser can move very fast, a laser printer can print at a very fast rate - far faster than any inkjet printer. Also, because the laser is extremely accurate, it allows for extremely crisp prints, with little chance of smudging or blotting.

Cost

Compared to inkjet printers, laser printers are far more expensive - sometimes double or more the cost of an equivalent inkjet model. However while the initial cost is high, the day-to-day running costs are far lower: toner cartridges last far longer than ink cartridges, and are cheaper to replace. Both these factors mean that if you routinely print large amounts of documents, a laser printer will be far more economical over time compared to an inkjet.

Types of Laser Printer

There are 2 main types of laser printer on the market at the moment - laser and LED printers. Both work by the same process - using focussed light to trace a path for toner particles on a page. However while a laser has to track across the page from one side of a line to the other, an LED printer can use a static bank of LEDs to ‘flash’ an entire line in one go. This means that LED printers are far faster than laser printers which achieving the same high-quality prints. However since LED printers are a new technology, you can expect to pay more for an LED-enabled printer. If you find yourself regularly printing a lot of documents, the saving in time may well be worth the expenditure.

Black & White vs. Colour

Laser printers are primarily monochromatic, since they only use a single colour of toner. However colour laser printers do exist - they work by having 4 separate cartridges and drums (black, yellow, magenta and cyan) so the paper is passed through each colour of toner in turn, building up a fully-coloured print as it goes.

Because they involve far more hardware, colour laser printers are far more expensive than their monochromatic cousins. Moreover, the quality of the printing is nowhere near as good as inkjet or photo printers - you won’t be able to get professional-quality colour depth or detail from a laser printer. Therefore if high-quality colour printing is important for you, you may wish to look into buying an inkjet printer.

Print Speed

Laser printers are far faster than inkjet printers, and are capable of a very high rate of pages printed per minute. That said, there is a large variety in printing speed within laser printers, with some models capable of printing pages twice as fast as other devices. This is especially true of LED printers, which are capable of an extremely high page-per-minute rate. All of our printers have detailed stats on the number of pages they can print a minute, broken down into monochrome and colour, as well as by quality (draft, normal, high-quality). This will allow you to make the best decision as to the laser printer that best suits your needs.

loading image

Connectivity

Most newer models of laser printers have an array of network connectivity options to make printing easier and more efficient. Ethernet connectivity is now a common feature in modern laser printers - so data can be transferred over a network without having to plug your computer into the printer directly. This makes it far easier to share printers with groups: the printer can be placed in a central area and used freely by everyone around.

Additionally, many models of laser and LED printer also have wifi and/or bluetooth connectivity. These options mean that you do not even have to use a cable to use the printer - data can be transferred over wireless connection.

Finally, the newest models of these printers have support for cloud or app printing. These options allow you to send a document to print from anywhere in the world - from a browser over the cloud, or from an app on your smartphone. While you will pay more money for these options, the convenience they provide may be worth the extra expenditure.

The third biggest retailer is Newegg US with 136 current laser printer offers.

When Are Most New Laser Printers Released?

Most new laser printers tend to be released between August and October. If you wait until August 2019 then you might be able to get better features on your laser printer. It's also worth keeping in mind that the price of the current laser printers tend to drop off when the next models are released. The biggest month last year for new laser printer releases was August, with 19 new laser printers released that month. 85 new laser printers were released in November 2017 making it the biggest month that year for new laser printer releases. October was the biggest month in 2016 for new laser printers, with 38 new laser printers released that month.

On average, in the first 6 months after release, laser printers drop in price by 9%. On a typical new laser printer costing $825, by waiting 6 months before buying you could save on average $77.

Maximum Resolutions

'Maximum Resolution' denotes the largest resolution that the laser printer is capable of printing at.

We found 318 laser printers that are 1200 x 1200 DPI laser printers, which makes this the most common maximum resolution amongst new laser printers. We found 102 laser printers that are 600 x 600 DPI laser printers, making this the second most common maximum resolution amongst new laser printers.

A larger resolution means that the print-out is comprised of more pixels, meaning greater detail and a higher-quality print.

Print Speeds

'Print Speed' measures how long it takes the laser printer to print a single black & white A4 page at normal quality.

Across the range of laser printers, the print speeds range from 8ppm to 75ppm. The print speeds of most laser printers range from 35ppm to 40ppm. The HP 765DN, which is on sale for $3,799.00, has the fastest print speed and is a 75ppm print speed laser printer. The DELL C1760nw, which can be purchased for $249.95, has the slowest print speed and is a 15ppm print speed laser printer.

A faster print speed means the laser printer is more efficient and can manage larger print jobs faster.

Colour Printing

'Colour Printing' denotes whether the laser printer has the ability to print in colour, or whether it's limited to black & white.

Most new laser printers are laser printers which do not support colour printing. 319 out of 570 laser printers on Kagoo are laser printers which do not support colour printing and 251 out of 570 laser printers are laser printers which support colour printing.
