Finding the Fastest Laser Printer
Good research is always the key, and your best option, when you are trying to decide among a number of products that meet your needs. A wide variety of different types of printers exist, and it can be overwhelming to locate the best one that will fulfill all your requirements.
Take your needs and expectations step-by-step. Narrow down the choices according to each of your requirements. For example, do you need only a black-and-white printer or do you require color? Do you need a personal laser printer or one for a business or home office use? Let's take a look at some of the models available.
Most recently, Dell has claimed that it has the fastest letter-size, single-function color laser printer. The 5130cdn can produce up to 47 single-sided color or monochrome printed pages per minute (ppm). If you choose to print two-sided pages, it can operate at 37 ppm. Add to the speedy performance the fact that it also saves energy, thanks to toner that fuses at a lower temperature and you have two very important reasons to consider this printer. The toner technology used by this printer is called ColorbyDell and institutes a new toner formula that enables the quality end results. The Dell 5130cdn also has a built-in remote tool that allows the device to be monitored in workgroup environments. The Dell ColorTrack Pro offers administrative management over use of the machine.
Two other new Dell units that also claim to be fast are the 7130cdn LED color printer and the 3330dn machine. The 7130cdn is capable of printing pages the size of tabloids and is LED-based. The 3330dn is a black-and-white only laser printer that can produce up to 40 ppm. The 7130cdn is a much more expensive laser printer because of the page size it is capable of generating.
Other fast laser printer options include the Ricoh Aficio Color Laser Printer 10/100 Base TX (SP C811DN). This laser printer manufactured by Ricoh prints in black-and-white and color at the rate of 40 ppm. It comes with a pretty hefty price tag. The Samsung ML-4551NR Monochrome Laser Printer offers 1200 x 1200 dpi resolution and a print speed of up to 45 ppm for letter size pages. It is monochrome only but offers good speed at a reasonable price. The HP LaserJet P4515tn monochrome laser printer states that it can print 62 ppm, which is a higher rate than the Dell 5130cdn; however, it prints in black-and-white only. The P4515tn has a resolution of 1200dpi x 1200dpi, has a capacity of 1,100 sheets, and can use legal size paper as well as letter size.
The Brother HL-4070CDW Color Laser Printer with Built-In Duplex and Wireless Interface has been recognized as a solid choice for a small office. It is offered at a reasonable price for the services it provides. It is a both a color and a monochrome printer with 2400dpi x 600 dpi resolution, and it can print at 21 ppm. It also has also been certified with the Energy Star.
