What is the difference between an inkjet printer and a laser printer? Whose quality is better? How to clean them at home


In inkjet printers, the link in the cartridge is in liquid form.
Ink in laser printers is in the form of toner (powder).
Laser printers offer better printing quality than inkjet printers.

Earlier we used to go out to print anything, but as the demand increased many people bought it. Nowadays, most of the printing work is done by school children. Because of this it becomes expensive to print from outside again and again. There are two types of printers in the market – one is the inkjet printer, and the other is the laser printer. Let’s first understand how these two work.

First of all, inkjet printers are slightly cheaper than laser printers. Inkjet printers have a nozzle from which ink is sprayed onto the paper. Where the laser nozzle is not provided. Inkjet printer cartridges contain links in liquid form that dry up after long periods of disuse. On the other hand, the ink in laser printers is in the form of toner (powder), which does not dry out even if it is not used for a long time.
