Should I Buy Ink Printer vs Toner Printers?

By: Baggette Ferg

Many customers when purchasing a printer will go to wal-mart to make a decision on which printer to purchase based on the price tag. Several of these stores have ink jet printers on sale from around $70 - $90. However, the laser printers with the toner cartridges go for over $100. They see the ink jet printers are half the price of the laser ones & think to themselves "I'm getting the lower priced item".

What they don't understand up until a few months down the road is that the less expensive ink printer will get very costly in the long haul for the ink. Let's contrast and compare some printer here. You can buy a HP ink jet printer for $60 - $70, it takes the HP 22 & 21 ink jet printer cartridges. These 2 ink cartridges I said before are some of the most common ink jets from HP. The HP 22 has a page yield of 165 pages which means you are spending around 7 cents a copy with the typical ink jet machine.

We suggest the Dell 1250C color laser jet. It takes the 1250 toner cartridges which are around 22 dollars each. This printer has a page yeild of around 2,000 pages. This comes out to roughly one cent per copy as compared to 7 cents a copy with the ink jet machine. These types of printers are near $150 which is almost 2 times as much as the other ink jet machine, but the printer cartridges are around seven times less expensive. Which means you can spend $700/YR of ink or 100 dollars a year on toner. This means you save much more money in the long haul by purchasing the more expensive printer.

So there you have it if you are in the market for a new printer you now know what to do!
