Laser printers are controlled through page description languages (PDLs). Page description languages have two de facto standards

    InkJet printers have the problem of getting dry very soon. At least every two days we need to make a print out to keep the ink undry. That’s the reason why many people choose Laser printing instead of Inkjet and its very efficient when compared to Ink jet.

    In our office, we upgraded to a laser printer last year. Apart from the initial costs, the actual cost to run it seems to be lower and the quality of the print [not to mention the speed] is much better.

    I love my laser printer. I feel like the quality of image is much better than most of the other printers I have used, even for printing images. I am currently getting into photography and want a printer that will print my images out in a professional quality, what type of printer would you suggest for that?
