The lowest-cost laser printers discussed above factor in a cartridges page-yield to come up with a best per-page value. To determine a printing cost per page, divide a printers page yield by the ink cartridges cost.
To measure the cost of owning and operating a laser printer, we take the current street price for toner, and estimate how many pages will be produced from any given cartridge, and compute the cost per printed page.
With a lower-end printer, you will find the total cost of printer cartridges purchased over a one-year period has exceeded by far the printing cost you paid for the printer.
While laser printer cartridges are more expensive, the per-page cost for a laser printer is considerably lower than an inkjet, especially if you are looking to print heavily in black-and-white.
Over time, laser printers are also cheaper to operate, since you get more prints for each dollar spent on toner than inkjet. Our HP LaserJet Enterprise printers are built to maximize performance with maximum efficiency and high speeds, capable of printing at speeds up to 75 pages per minute.
If your company does excessive amounts of printing, you are going to be well served by our HP LaserJet Enterprise printers.
With printing speeds up to 19 pages per minute, the HP LaserJet Pro M15w Compact Laser Printer is among the fastest in its class, making it a perfect choice for home or school use.
Our favorite laser printer overall might be a little pricier up front, but the Brother MFC-L2750DW has the best mix of print quality, speed, and cost that we have seen from a laser printer, so it is our Editors Choice.
At its heart, the Brother MFC-L2750DW is an extremely similar printer–it is also equally simple to set up–but also has a flatbed scanner on top, as well as a speedy, duplex, single-pass auto document feeder.
Our overall favorite laser printer is not only cheap to buy; operating costs are low, with an average page cost of 3.7 cents using standard-capacity toner and only 2.7 cents using the higher-capacity variety.
One of the best ways to cut your printing cost is by using a laser printer that uses a high-capacity toner cartridge, and ensuring that your per-print costs are lower; a toner that has a lower sticker price is not necessarily more economical.
If you opt for an actual lower-cost inkjet printer, you might find yourself disappointed with your printers speed and quality, particularly with photos or graphics.
Remember, because running costs are a deal-breaker for many buyers, not every laser printer is cheap; some might turn out to be more than others, so also be particularly aware of the toner cartridges used with each model.
Just be aware, however, that colored laser toners can become an investment when it comes time for refills, often exceeding the printers price.
Laser printers, and the toners they use, come with hefty up-front costs; if you do not print much, you might want to get a cheaper inkjet–some are only $30 or so–and its higher operating costs might be more than enough to make up for the higher initial costs of the laser.
These Brother laser printers come with 4 slots, for a black cartridge and each color, and only have to be replaced when you run out of toner, and this laser printer offers great print quality for both regular documents, bills, photos, and offers great value for money for every print you do if you are only printing lots of color documents.
An all-in-one wireless color (print, copy, scan, and fax) laser printer, the HP LaserJet Pro M477fnw offers some business-class features like a 4.3-inch color touch screen, a 2-sided ADF with a single step-up, a 300-sheet input tray, mobile printing, and a page speed of 28ppm for both B&W; and color prints.
