For home use, the decision here is laser or inkjet printer. Laser printers use toner, are ideal for high-volume printing and, in the past, were mostly used in offices, although they are becoming more popular at home. To print, they have a drum unit that fuses (or melts) toner powder onto paper with heat. An inkjet printer uses ink, is suitable for low volume printing and is the traditional choice of home users, although not always. To print, inkjet printers spray liquid ink through microscopic nozzles onto paper. These printers once made up the bulk of the market, but laser printers are now much more available and also have very comparable prices. If you don’t do high-volume printing, an inkjet printer will serve you fine. If you don’t have a preference on type, move on to the next consideration—cost to keep your printer running.
