If you need to print in large quantities or just want something that looks extra sharp, then a laser printer is a good investment. Laser printers do take some time to heat up, and upfront costs are more than inkjet printers. Still, for volume and clarity, they can't be beaten, making them particularly good value for businesses and home office environments if you're now working from home.
What you get here is a well-priced mono laser printer that's tough to fault. It's got both wired and wireless connectivity, automatic two-sided printing, USB, and a toner saving mode for the times you don't need the best quality prints. And with Amazon Dash support built right in, your printer can order new toner for you.
Best for business
This beast of a printer is perfect for the office environment, with fully wireless capabilities that also include connecting to smartphones and directly to the cloud. It has a large, easy-to-use touchscreen, prints at up to 45 ppm, and has a capacity of up to 3,250 sheets. And with Amazon Dash, you'll never be without ink since the printer can order replacements.
Best color laser
If you're looking for something that'll print in color, then you'll need a higher budget and something like this excellent printer from HP. Like all good modern printers, it's wireless as well as having a 22ppm print speed, and a 250 sheet capacity, which isn't the fastest or most capacious, but its quality and ease of use makes up for it, as does the support for Amazon Alexa. The best option right now is to get a Renewed version and save some cash.
This compact, space-saving printer is perfect for those quick jobs and less intensive use. It can print within eight seconds, has a reasonably good 26 ppm print speed, and supports wireless printing from both PC and smartphones. The toner and drum are also a combined unit, making replacements super simple to install.
Print, scan and copy
This compact all-in-one is perfect for the home or small office environment, and not only prints but also offers photocopying and scanning features all in one unit. It also provides paper-saving features like two-sided printing, as well as a 35-page capacity document feeder for unattended scanning or faxing and Amazon Dash support for automated toner ordering.
Easy mobile printing
Perfect for printing at home, this laser printer has NFC for easy pairing with a smartphone or tablet on top of its regular wireless and cloud connectivity. It also has Ethernet, a fast print speed with auto-feed, great capacity, and is particularly good at images. It supports up to 8.5-inch x 14-inch sized paper and comes backed with 24/7 support from Samsung.
All of these are excellent laser printers, but the Brother HL-L2350DW (opens in new tab) has the edge. It's well priced, offers quality and efficiency, and won't look out of place in the home or office. And it's not enormous either, which is always helpful! The party piece, though, is the Amazon Dash integration. Once set up, the printer can order its own replacement toner, so you never have to worry about running out at the crucial time. And automating a task such as ordering printer toner will never be a bad thing!
You don't get everything with this printer, for example, you can't print in color. But if you're looking for that, then the excellent HP Color LaserJet Pro (opens in new tab) is the one to get. It delivers quality prints, good capacity, and even Alexa integration if you want to enjoy talking to your printer!
Business users will be well looked after with the admittedly large Xerox VersaLink C500 (opens in new tab) though in an office environment size is likely less of a concern. What it adds, though, is a massive capacity and fast print rates, and Amazon Dash integration means no-one will ever have to worry about ordering fresh toner.
