Not everyone needs colour in their lives. For some people, life is just black and white. For those looking for an affordable and highly efficient option, mono laser printers are an excellent choice. Spending extra on a colour inkjet is unnecessary for some and these machines are perfect for users that only use a printer for tasks such as: college essays, letters and invoices.
As monochrome laser printers are relatively cheap in comparison with inkjet printers, many make the common perception that they are of poorer quality, or less efficient than the more expensive option. In actual fact, mono printers print faster than inkjets, and produce a higher quality of text as well. Mono laser printers have the edge with regard to the quality of characters, their crisper edges also enable advantages in line graphics, and the majority of our mono laser printers can print photos to an excellent standard.

Mono laser printers
Mono, or black and white, laser printers are ideal for office environments where most of the printed material is text. Having the option of colour printing is handy but you will save a lot of money by investing in a mono laser printer if you expect to be printing a large volume of documents with mainly textual content. Many businesses opt for the mono laser printer to be their main work horse, but they also purchase a small inkjet to handle colour printing as and when required.
The main advantage of a mono laser printer is its high-speed capacity, which is why it is suitable for high pressure office environments. Print speed is measured in pages per minute (ppm). The actual speed depends on chosen print quality and whether there are graphics or images in the document. In general, laser printers are faster than inkjet printers.
Other things to watch out for when shopping for a mono laser printer include monthly duty cycle, network and wireless connectivity, dpi and duplex printing.
The monthly duty cycle tells you how many pages a month the printer is capable of handling. It can range from 5,000 to 300,000. Obviously, if you are running a busy office and expect a high volume of printing, then a cycle closer to 300,000 is what you will need.
Network and wireless connectivity are becoming standard with all powerful office printers. It makes life so much easier if your workers have access to the printer from their own desktop machines. It’s easy to find out if a printer has connectivity. An ‘N’ in the model no. indicates network connectivity and a ‘W’ indicates wireless capability.
dpi (dots per inch) measures resolution and is a major factor in print quality. The higher the dpi, the better the quality. For mono laser printers, dpi ranges from about 600 to 1200 on some higher spec. models.
Duplex, or double-sided, printing, is desirable as it saves paper and therefore lowers printing cost as well as being friendly to the environment. Lookout for a ‘D’ in the model no. if you want this feature.
We have an impressive range of mono laser printers, all ready and waiting to find new homes in offices around the country. We deliver swiftly and securely after you order your printer, so that it will arrive in a matter of days, in the same condition that it left our warehouse in.
