Difference between laser printer and inkjet printer
Difference between laser printer and inkjet printer inkjet printer:
Inkjet printers can be divided into three categories according to the main uses of products: ordinary inkjet printers, digital photo inkjet printers and portable inkjet printers.
Ordinary inkjet printer is the most common printer at present. It has a wide range of uses. It can be used to print manuscripts, print graphics and images, and print photos with photo paper. Ordinary inkjet printers range from low-end economic products with a price of more than 300 yuan to high-end products with a price of 3000 or 4000 yuan. Users can choose according to their own needs.
The use of digital photo inkjet printer is basically similar to that of ordinary inkjet printer. Both ordinary manuscripts and photos can be printed. However, the reason why it is classified as a digital photo product is that compared with ordinary products, it has a digital card reader. With the support of built-in software, it can directly connect the digital memory card of the digital camera (several digital memory cards can be supported, depending on the digital card reader of the printer) and the digital camera, It can print digital photos directly without computer support. Some digital photo printers are also equipped with LCD screen. Through the LCD screen, users can edit and set the photos in the digital memory card, so that the printing task can be completed more brightly. At present, the price of such products ranges from 1000 yuan to 4000 or 5000 yuan.
Portable inkjet printers refer to those products that are small in size, generally weighing less than 1000 grams, can be easily carried, can use battery power, and can be used without external AC. Such products are generally used with laptops. However, there is still a portable digital photo inkjet printer among the portable inkjet printers. It has the characteristics of two kinds of printers. Compact and portable, it can be directly connected to the digital camera for printing without a computer.
In terms of printer principle, the more common printers on the market are roughly divided into inkjet printer, laser printer and needle printer. Compared with other types of printers, laser printers have several significant advantages, including high printing speed, good printing quality, low working noise and so on. Moreover, with the continuous reduction of price, it has been widely used in the field of office automation (OA) and various computer-aided design (CAD) systems.
Laser printers can be divided into black-and-white laser printers and color laser printers. The fading of needle printer from the field of business office has created a good opportunity for black-and-white laser printer to become the first choice for enterprise information construction. However, it is in the double attack of inkjet printer and multifunctional all-in-one machine. Exquisite printing quality, low printing cost, excellent work efficiency and high printing load are the most prominent characteristics of black-and-white laser printer, which also determines that it will still be the mainstream of today's office printing market. Although the price of black-and-white laser printer is higher than that of ink-jet printer and has fewer functions than multifunctional all-in-one machine, it has absolute advantages in terms of single page printing cost and printing speed, and will still be the first choice for business office people pursuing efficiency. With the development of Internet, the future black-and-white laser printer will no longer be a simple independent peripheral product with printing function, but will gradually develop into an intelligent and automatic file processing and output terminal device in the network.
In the past, the color laser printer has always been facing the professional field. In terms of cost, the complete machine and consumables of the color laser printer are also expensive. So far, the host and consumables of the color laser printer are the main reason why many users finally give up laser and ask for ink-jet. However, its printing color performance is realistic, safe and stable, fast printing speed, long service life and low overall cost of ownership. It is believed that with the development of color laser printer technology and the decline of price, more enterprise users will choose color laser printer.
