Laser Printers May Provide Long Term Value For Home Users
The Guardian highlighted the reducing page yield of some inkjet printers, which can see cartridges produce just 200 pages.
Laser printers were previously prohibitively expensive and bulky for a home user. However, a basic black and white model can now be obtained for £100, although colour laser printers are significantly pricier.
Ink cartridges can produce as much as 1,500 to 3,500 pages, but cost between £60 and £120 each.
Environmental Business Products head of cartridge recycler Patrick Stead commented: " "Laser can be better value over the longer term, but the initial outlay can be a lot more."
Recent research from Gartner suggested businesses should embrace new printer technology to stay ahead of developments.
