Best Laser Printers for Mac iMore 2019

If you need to print in large quantities or you need your prints to come out with very crisp text, then a laser printer is the way to go. Laser printers take some time to heat up, and upfront costs are more than inkjet printers, but for volume and clarity, they can't be beaten, and you'll likely save some money in the long run on a per sheet basis. This is especially important if you run a small business or plan on using your printer a lot.

Why laser over ink?

Laser printers have a ton of advantages over your typical inkjet printers and are a very viable option for at home use. These type of printers will save you money in the long run. Although your average toner cartridge for a laser printer is more expensive than an ink cartridge, toner lasts a lot longer and because its a powder, it can't dry out over time. Plus, laser printers offer much sharper lines than inkjet, meaning small text is much easier to read as it always comes out crisp and clear.

Of course, laser printers aren't quite as good at printing photos as a high-quality inkjet printer would be, because inkjets can often have up to six or more different colors of ink allowing them to blend colors smoothly and produce more colors.

Overall, we're most impressed with the Brother HL-L2350DW, which is a low-cost solution for a home office. It's compact, simple, and swift at printing large documents. If you're looking for a color laser printer that won't break the bank, consider the HP Color LaserJet Pro M254dw. When money isn't so important, check out the Xerox VersaLink C405/DN.
