There are many companies out there who have heavy-duty print jobs daily and need a printer that can keep up. They may need hundreds or even thousands of prints per day, and they need them in a timely manner with no fear of paper jams or smudging text. The best bet for these types of companies would probably be an HP LaserJet printer. Even though inkjet printers can have better quality, they are slower and the small ink cartridges do not yield nearly enough to appease large companies.
For instance, standard HP P1006 toner can yield up to 2,000 pages. There are also high capacity cartridges that can produce as many as 4,000 pages. You will rarely find an inkjet printer that can yield more than 1,000 pages. Some monochrome printers that hold toners that can yield up to 30,000 pages. If a company needs to print only in black, this capacity is unbeatable.
When looking to print in color, the LaserJet CP1215 toner comes in magenta, cyan, yellow and black. The black can print over 2,000 pages and the colors yield about 1,500 pages. The color-capable laser printers are extremely beneficial for graphic designers or even architects trying to create a blueprint.
Laser printers are also known for their speed. Brother MFC-9420cn toner can not only yield 6,600 pages for color and 10,000 pages for black, but it can also print as many as 31 pages per minute. Okidata, Konica-Minolta and Dell also make award-winning laser printers with the capacity to handle heavy-duty jobs and appease the printing needs of large companies.
All in all, inkjet printers are designed more for the home-front, while LaserJet printers are better suited for the office environment. A laser printer will go to waste in a home, and an inkjet printer will probably decrease efficiency in an office.
