Here is a wide variety of them from a reputable site. If you're wanting something that will do high volume and last, I would recommend at least a midrange unit.

Hope that helped...

How to Differentiate Between Laser Printers & Inkjet Printers


You require a new printer but you do not know whether to buy an inkjet or a laser printer, as you are not aware of the differences between the two. Each user or organisation is faced with the dilemma while buying a new printer. Most customers operate under strict budgetary constraints and it is only normal to consider initial purchase costs and space limitations. However, it is prudent to take into consideration the long-term operating costs associated with the particular printer.<br /> The choice of printer will, largely, depend on your requirements. Inkjet printers are usually ideal for home users who have limited text and photo printing needs. Laser printers are better suited to larger office environments with high-volume and high-quality printing requirements.<br /> The differences between a laser and an inkjet printer are generally categorised into a few broad segments, namely, cost (initial and maintenance), speed, quality, space and networking facilities. It is also essential to understand the technology behind the manufacturing of the laser toners and ink cartridges as this is a major contributing factor towards the cost.<br /> <b>Difference in Technology & Networking Facilities between Inkjet and Laser Printers</b> -<br /> The technology used for inkjet cartridges is simpler and the parts are less expensive than the laser toners. The black inkjet cartridge has only black ink. The color inkjet printer contains two main ink cartridges, for black and other primary colors respectively. The primary colors are then divided into three compartments for cyan, magenta and yellow ink. The primary colors are consequently mixed to produce all other colors. The cartridge contains a reservoir which has compartments with metal plates and a number of tiny nozzles on the print head of the cartridge. The number of holes or nozzles depends on the resolution of the printer. It is usually 21 - 128 nozzles per color. The ink gets heated, when the current starts flowing through the metal plates, after the print command is given. The heat causes vapor bubbles to form inside the cartridge and make the ink swell up. The ink then flows out in droplets from the nozzles onto the paper in a few milliseconds. A vacuum is created (once the ink droplet flows out) which draws more ink into the nozzles ensuring a steady supply of droplets as required. This common technique is called Thermal Inkjet and the coinage of the name 'BubbleJets' by Canon has been due to the bubbling vapors.<br /> The Laser toners use a more elaborate and complex technology. A powder called Toner is used by laser printers, fax machines and photocopiers to print text and images on laser and photo paper. Initially carbon powder was used but now manufacturers use disposable cartridges which can sometimes be refilled. For the laser toners, individual carbon particles are mixed in a polymer which melt in heat. This binds to the fibers in the paper. The laser printers consist of the printer toner and the drum. The positively charged toner gets attracted to the negatively charged drum. The toner is transferred to the paper by the drum. The toner contains special wax that melts and dries in milliseconds. When the toner is transferred, the fuser applies heat and pressure to make a durable image. The fuser system is made up of the hot-roll and the back-up roller.<br /> The high-end laser printers generally come with networking facilities for you to connect to your computer network directly. This cuts down additional costs associated with networking, as is the case with ink printers. The ink printers cannot be linked to a network directly. Networking has to be via a computer, therefore more expensive.<br /> The laser printers are larger in size than the inkjet printers. The latter is, therefore, space saving and ideal for the home and small office users.<br /> <b>Difference of Quality & Color between Laser and Inkjet Printers</b> -<br /> Since Inkjet Printers spill out tiny droplets of ink to print, the resolution is lower than the laser printers. Laser Printers printer better quality text, as their resolution is higher. High resolution also helps the laser printers create precise fonts without fuzzy edges. However, the cost-effective inkjet printers are usually recommended for inexpensive color printing. These can print high quality text, large photo prints, graphics, banners and greeting cards at less than half the price of a color laser printer. Nevertheless, it should also be seen if the cost of ink and paper suits your maintenance budget. Laser printers are capable of producing good quality prints on all kinds of printing paper but the inkjet printers will require inkjet paper to produce good quality prints without any fuzzy edge brought about by 'bleeding'.<br /> <b>Difference in Speed between Ink and Laser Printers</b> -<br /> If laser printers lose out to their inkjet counterparts on account of price, they are way ahead when it comes to speed of printing. Users who need large volumes of printing also prefer the laser printers. Laser printers are more suited to general office use than the inkjets. The least expensive laser printer can print around 10 to 15 pages per minute. The inkjets are usually rated on the speed of draft or quick printing mode, which is suitable only for proofreading purposes. The HP Deskjet 5650, which is a fast color inkjet printer, prints at a speed of 21 ppm Black, 15 ppm Color in the draft mode. However, the speed drops considerably when high quality black text is printed and it also takes longer to print a letter-sized quality photo.

My boss want to replace the black ink cartridge for one that prints color. Can this be done with the HP 12-a cartridges? HP Laser jet 1022


Unfortunately laser printers don't work this way. The laserjet 1022 was designed for black and white prints only. In order to do color printing with a laser printer you will need to purchase one that is designed to print in color. The laser printers work a bit differently than the inkjets - the laser printers have 4 toner cartridges, one each for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black, that work together to print a full color page. With the old inkjets you could just replace a black cartridge with a color one.

So, short answer: Sorry but no you can't make a laserjet 1022 print in color. :)

I would recommend looking at an entry level color laser printer from hp, such as the CP2025 (http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/us/en/sm/WF25a/18972-18972-3328060-15077-236268-3673580.html) if you are looking into purchasing a color laserjet.

Hope this helps

HOW DO I SET UP TO ONLY PRINT BLACK.


Buy a monochrome laser machine. There are no ink printers that only ever print black. Laser machines are 1/2 the cost per page, never clog, and run forever.

My lexmark e120 printer prints with horizontal lines across the pages, how do I get rid of this?


Many times horizontal lines -- esp if constant (e.g. 4 inches apart) appear-- on laser printers indicates a drum issue. NOT usually inexpensive. Sometimes one can dis-assemble part of printer and clean drum with soft cloth and therefore "buy some time"

How can i make this printer just print in black ink only ?


You can't, HP and all the other printer manufacturers have designed the new ink printers to always mix a little color with the black. This is why if you you've noticed when you run out of black ink the text starts looking funny colors. If you would like to only print in black we recommend purchasing a small monochrome laser printer. The Brother HL-2140 is a nice, economical, and inexpensive unit for this purpose.

I cannot print black when the color cartridges are empty. MOdel mfc665cw


Don't you see the logic? Brother wants you to spend money by buying color cartridges. And also, most printers are also using colors to make the prints darker.

Messy prints


not a solution but i have the same problem, found that buying bottles of fuser oil and adding it regularly to orange foam rollers found under fuser oil unit helps although 1st page printed will be covered in oil. also i have cut holes in top of fuser oil unit so can keep a high level of oil. i have 5 of these printers all with the same problem.in my search for a solution came across this, rings true to me. http://www.dec.com/sbso/expert/competitive_ricoh_reliability.html
