I'm just wondering what people's preferences are? I always figured that a laser printer was better for everyday printing such as word documents etc. But then I guess inkjet printers are the best for photo printing right?

I guess that is why most offices/businesses always have laser printers rather than inkjet ones.

Printer cartridges do seem to finish so quickly for the inkjet printers, so yes possibly you can save large amounts of money in the long-term.

Inkjet printer are more faster and good quality at photo printing than laser printer. It's up to you, that printer can put at home or office. Not much cost, and you can use it everyday. Laser printer more sparingly produce the ink, but it much expensive than usual printer. However, i still choose Inkjet Printer as the best printer.

Yes I have heard that a top-quality inkjet printer is superior to a laser printer in terms of print quality.

Well, its based on the needs and costs. While laser printers are costly they can print fast and are more suitable for official use. Inkjet printers can be used for home use

Good point. In an office or business you need high amounts printed.

UK_Shree, I would prefer the laser as the print quality, the smooth and quiet performing operation are worthy factors and considerations here. However, due to the considerable amount for their toners, I am just relatively reluctant to consider the laser for my personal use. Hence, the inkjet would then be my economical alternative for my personal use as oppose to the laser. It is just not in me to splurge on myself and it is wasteful to me as I felt that the inkjets today are equally compatible in print quality, only to loose out on the bearable noise of an inkjet. Cheers.

I know what you mean. I really like the quietness of the laser printer too but they do seem to cost alot of money. Especially if you were to go for a colour laser printer for example.
