HP Laserjet 2300 laser printer
1> First decide what kind of documents you will print
Color, monochrome, text, graphics or photos. If you will print black text and won’t need color, you may want to go for a monochrome laser printer which offers the best text quality and speed. But if you’ll print high resolution photos you may want an inkjet printer which offers the best photo and graphics quality. If you want true photo quality outputs, go for the photo inkjet printers that specialize in photo printing.
2> Inkjet printers may seem affordable, but consider the cost of ink cartridges
Before you buy your inkjet printer, you can check the prices and yields (number of pages ink cartridge prints) of the ink cartridges and find out an estimate monthly cost according to the number of pages you will print in a month. Also, most inkjet and laser printers do not come with a printer cable that connects the printer to the computer. Include printer cable cost in your budget.

But toner cartridges last much longer which makes their cost per page less in the long term.
4> Bear in mind that the speeds stated by the printer manufacturers are often higher than real life speeds
A typical inkjet printer print speed may vary between 1 to 28 ppm for black text and 1 to 20 ppm for color photo or graphics. A mid-range monochrome laser printer’s print speed may vary between 6 to 25 ppm for sharp black texts and 2 to 20 ppm for black & white graphics. A typical color laser printer’s print speed will vary between 6 to 20 ppm for black text and 1 to 12 ppm for color graphics.
