INKJET VS. LASER: WHICH PRINTER DO YOU PREFER?
« on: Thu, 26 June 2014, 14:21:12 »
SO, DO YOU PREFER TO USE LASER PRINTERS OR INKJET PRINTERS? I PERSONALLY PREFER LASER PRINTERS, BUT I RUN AN INKJET PRINTER IN MY PERSONAL COMPUTER LABORATORY.

Inkjet for convenience sake/not having to breathe the exhaust from laser, but laser printers for a more professional look.

I think the sole reason to choose an inkjet over a laser printer would be cost. Else, you'd get a laser. And even then, if you print frequently enough, the laser ends up being cost-beneficial as well.

Laser, especially if you're in a hurry.

Why does inkjet ink always have to melt when it gets wet?
Were our leaders just stupid? Well, maybe. But there’s a deeper explanation of the profoundly self-destructive behavior of Trump and his allies: They were all members of America’s cult of selfishness. You see, the modern US right is committed to the proposition that greed is good, that we’re all better off when individuals engage in the untrammeled pursuit of self-interest. In their vision, unrestricted profit maximization by businesses and unregulated consumer choice is the recipe for a good society.
Support for this proposition is, if anything, more emotional than intellectual. I’ve long been struck by the intensity of right-wing anger against relatively trivial regulations, like bans on phosphates in detergent and efficiency standards for light bulbs. It’s the principle of the thing: Many on the right are enraged at any suggestion that their actions should take other people’s welfare into account. This rage is sometimes portrayed as love of freedom. But people who insist on the right to pollute are notably unbothered by, say, federal agents tear-gassing peaceful protesters. What they call “freedom” is actually absence of responsibility.
Rational policy in a pandemic, however, is all about taking responsibility. The main reason you shouldn’t go to a bar and should wear a mask isn’t self-protection, although that’s part of it; the point is that congregating in noisy, crowded spaces or exhaling droplets into shared air puts others at risk. And that’s the kind of thing America’s right just hates, hates to hear. Anger at any suggestion of social responsibility also helps explain the looming fiscal catastrophe.  – Paul Krugman 2020-07-28 NYT

That's because the ink is water soluble. That's the main disadvantage of ink in general, I'd say.

I got a laser printer for $5 with a full thing of toner.

The automatic feed from the tray is broken, so I have to hand-load pages into the front.

NOT BAD FOR 5 BUCKS, ESPECIALLY WITH A FULL TONER CARTRIDGE. I ALWAYS LIKED THE PRINT QUALITY FROM LASER PRINTERS.

That's nothing!

I found an HP laser printer lying by the side of the road.  Carried it home.  I wouldn't say the toner was full, but it has sufficed for my printing needs for many years.  Works perfectly.  Cost: $0 :D

I also recently acquired a used Dell colour laser printer with a foreign magenta toner cartridge.  THe gears don't mesh properly, so there is s loud grinding noise while it is printing.  It also spews magenta toner all over the place.  It would cost $70 to replace with a genuine Dell cartridge.

Awesome. The extent to which college kids will go to save money.

That said, I'm sad that most manufacturers won't produce parts. It would be a big savings if we could just buy parts for the parts that are broken.

I got my HP Color LaserJet 2550 as a gift from my brother. And I have enough NIB toner for it (thanks to my old highschool for throwing them all away) to last me a lifetime.

Best printer I've ever had. Only wish it had a NIC, then it'd be even better...

Goold old HP LaserJet 4M+, native PostScript with a network adapter. About the lowest price per page toner-wise of any printer ever made and you can send raw PostScript over the network directly to the printer's IP and it shall start printing (the level of "geekhackyness" of that one is huge).

This printer comes from an era when quality meant something. I see these kind of printers as the "IBM Model M" of printers: mines (I own several) are nearly 20 years old and still working fine.

And of course it displays "PC LOAD LETTER": http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PC_LOAD_LETTER

I used to have two LaserJet 4M - one developed paper feed problems, and the other just stopped working.

Great printers though - I inherited them from work where they had had many years of heavy use without missing a beat!

My printer story is the same every couple of years: need to print something, plug in the printer, ink is now all dried up and empty, go to staples, I know I can't just buy black and I have to refill all four, cost of all four inks is more than new printer OR they don't even sell it anymore, buy new printer, repeat.
