Are you planning to buy a new printer? Well! In today’s episode, Of simply Explained, we are going to compare Inkjet Printers And Laser Printers. We will try to differentiate between Inkjet Printers and laser printers, ad. We will try to identify which is the best printer to print images Or which is the best office printer. Which is the best printer for school/projects ? Without wasting time, let’s start with the video, by the way, you are watching Simply Explained On youtube. Without wasting time, let’s start with Printers. Before starting, With the pros and cos of both the printers i.e. Pros and cons of Inkjet printers and laser printers, let’s try to understand What are the differences and how they work. Start with inkjet printers. Inkjet Printers spray liquid ink through Microscopic nozzles on the paper, as shown in the picture. Whereas on the other hand, Laser printers Have a drum unit that fuses or melts toner powder on the paper. There is basically a toner Powder – Try to understand it as an Ink which is hard / solid in the form of powder. There is a drum which try to melt and put the ink On the paper with a laser, this is how laser printer works. Whenever you are trying to select a printer, there are three main criteria That you should consider i.e. Print Quality, Print Per Minute i.e. Print Speed and Efficiency of the printer i.e. Cost of Printing. For Example Print Quality is basically determined depending on the work that you have. For example, if you want to print photos, You need a different kind of printers whereas if you print only documents and text In your office, you need a different kind of printer. Similarly Print speed also plays a better role in selecting a printer For example, If you want to print thousands and hundreds of Documents regularly. Lawyers usually print hundred of documents regularly In that case, Print speed also matters. Next thing is the print cost As I told you, Lawyers and Builders usually print lot of papers. Builders have to print lot of documents. Print speed matters As well as print efficiency or cost of printing a single page also matters. Without wasting time, let’s move on to all the different criteria and Compare inkjet printers and laser printers in these Three terms, Let’s try to understand the paper quality And the print quality and which printer is best in Which part i.e. Starting with laser printers, Laser printer has a laser nozzle and thus it can print Text that is very crisp, fine, small Small text on a paper. If you are trying to print Something that is related to text or if you are into office printing, If you need a printer for your office work then a laser printer Will be best for you if we talk about the print quality whereas On the other hand, inkjet printers use ink which basically Does not have that precise printing and If you are trying to get a printer for your school work Then inkjet printer will be best because the quality and the colour Of the ink are better as compared to laser toner colours. In simple terms, if you need a printer that Is more Mono chrome and that has only text printers and is used To print documents in office, then laser printer Is best. If you want colour printing then again If it is an document colour printing and if there are only Limited colours then colour printer i.e. inkjet printer is quality good. But if you are looking for something that prints regularly photos i.e. Colours regularly. If your work requires You to print coloured photo regularly And on daily basis. Then inkjet printers will be quite Good for you. Because they can produce good colours and printing ability. Both printers i.e. laser printers as well as Inkjet printers have their pros and cons. If we talk about Print speed – Laser printers provide a print speed From 15 to 100 pages per minute. On an average, You will get as low as 15 pages and As high as 100 pages, depending on your budget. If you buy A high end laser printer, it will print 100 pages per minute. If you buy an entry level laser printer, it will print 15 pages per minute. On the other hand, inkjet Printers use ink, which requires time to dry up. Thus inkjet printers are less speedy and They take more time to print. So average speed of inkjet printer Is 16 pages per minute. Ranging from 5 Page to 20 pages per minute that brings us to 15 16 pages per minute on an average. If you Looking for something that does not require much print speed, Then you can go with inkjet printers. If you are looking for something That requires usually 100 to 200 pages everyday. Then I think, laser printer will be better for you. Let’s move on to the print volume. With prints Speed . There is something known as print volumes i.e. How many Prints your printer can print at a given time. For example, If you have an HP Laserjet Pro HP LaserJet Pro M401n can print 35 pages per minute 35 pages per minute whereas if you have an Canon Canon PIXMA TS6220 which is an inkjet printer. Inkjet printers can only print 15 pages per minute. But monthly there is a print volume that is Recommended by the company and the manufacturer. In case of a laser printer it is usually 700 to 3000 Pages per month whereas in case of inkjet printers, It is as low as 500 pages per month. So there is a monthly duty cycle Vs monthly recommended print volume. If you print Beyond this, you might face issues on Regular basis. If you are looking for high printing and Daily printing, then laser printer is the best bet. Now let’s move On the cost and efficiency of the printer. Printing cost. Usually there are three cost and three Things that you should consider while considering printing cost. The first thing is the lifespan of the printer The price of the cartridge and the Print cost. Let’s talk about the Printer’s life span. Usually inkjet printers have a minimum lifespan Of Three years. You might face problems after 3 years. On an average, People face problems in inkjet printers, after 3 years. Whereas in laser printer it is as low as 1 year because There is a laser involved and if you have a Dirty inkjet printer and if you don’t clean or service Inkjet printer, you might face problems as well as If you don’t operate inkjet printers for long time. Let’s say maybe for two months or 3 month if you haven’t taken Any printer. Then inkjet printers tend to have a Clogged nozzle and the ink gets clogged in the Nozzle thus adding a cost to your printing. Now let’s move on to the print cost. Usually laser Printers have a cartridge which is kind of Costly as compared to inkjet printers cartridge Because is an ink which is dried out which is a special kind fo Ink. Whereas inkjet printers have liquid ink which can be installed And inserted which can be inserted by your local printer mechanic So taking about cost of refill, the refill cost is more and Same is the cost of the printer . First time investment, the cost of the printer will be twice or thrice As compared to inkjet printers. If you get an inkjet printer For let’s say, 5000Rs you might have to invest Around 10000Rs to 15000Rs for An laser printer. The cost of buying The printer initially is high. If we talk about The printing efficiency and the printing cost. The printing cost is low as compared to inkjet printers. So ink is kind is costly. The cartridge of Laser printer are costly but the number of prints That a single cartridge can give is high. Thus Getting a print ratio a print cost as low As 1 Rs / 100 prints. Let’s take an example If you have a HP laser jet pro HP LaserJet Pro M401n – You might have to pay 190 for 7000 prints i.e. 2.8cents Per page. Whereas if you have a canon PIXMA CANON PIXMA TS6220 Inkjet printer – Refill cost Will be 24$ but it will only print 400 pages i.e. cost of around 6.2 cents Per page. That is triple the cost of the laser printer. The refill cost of laser printer is very expensive But it gives higher number of prints in a single cartridge Thus the print cost is very low. Let’s take a Quick summary. If you are looking for something to print regularly and If you print around 3000 documents , Minimum 3000 documents Per month, and on regular basis if you need to Print. And if you are printing something that is related to Text i.e. for office, you should go with laser printer. The cost of refill will be more but you will have that many Prints and the print cost will be less. You might have to invest much in laser printers but The quality of the print and the text will crisp. You can print faster. Whereas if you are looking for a home printer Where you might print some photos and even you might print Something that Is related to colour printing or for projects/ school projects And for kids. You should go with an inkjet printer But make sure you print regularly and don’t stop Printing for a month or two this might mess up With the ink, it might block the nozzle Make sure if you print 400 documents per month, You can go with inkjet printer. I hope you understood And the comparison between inkjet printer and laser printer was Well and in case if you want more episodes and more videos Like this, related to technology in animated format then I think you should subscribe to our youtube channel i.e. Simply Explained By the way, you are watching simply explained and my name is priyank Gada And that’s all for this video.
