Things to consider when making your purchase:

  • Initial cost – inkjet printers are cheaper to buy than laser printer, but they are far more expensive to run in the longer term.
  • Running costs – Laser printers are cheaper to run and the cost to print a page is approximately 25% that of inkjet.
  • Photo quality – Photo quality printers offer near photo quality, but are very expensive to use.
  • Text and graphics print quality – laser printers offer the most professional text and graphics quality.
  • Speed – Ink jets are extremely slow and are for home users only. Laser printers are recommended for all businesses.

    I like that you suggested thinking about choosing a multi function printer is you want to save office space. I have been looking for a new printer, but I don’t have much free space. I can see how a multi function printer could help me with this. I’ll keep that in mind when I’m looking. Thanks for the information!
