Printers using toner have a few added benefits compared to their inkjet brothers â€“ Laser printers are much speedier than inkjet ones â€“ the printers weâ€™ve chosen below average around 20 pages per minute; Inkjet printers compared on our previous post only managed 8 pages per minute. Since toners use lasers, thereâ€™s no print heads that need cleaning â€“ and no chance of the ink drying after sitting for a while.

Comparing the results, we see the printer that saves the most toner isâ€¦
|Brother HL-L2340DW! This machine will print pages costing just 1.1 cents â€“ Although it only prints monochrome, and lacks a scanning feature. For these and more, the Canon ImageCLASS MF216N can provide printouts at just 1.7 cents per page.|
If we look back to our price per page comparison of inkjet printers, weâ€™ll remember the Ecotank came in at less than a penny per page - 0.85 cents, to be exact â€“ which still keeps the Ecotank series of printers in the lead for the printer that saves the most ink. Itâ€™s entirely possible, however, that the initial cost of the printer outweighs any savings from its ink use. Weâ€™ll combine our findings in weighing price to get to the bottom line in finding what printer saves you the most money, period.
