In the not-so-distant past, laser printers were prohibitively expensive pieces of technology, reserved for large offices and corporate operations, and were not designed for personal use. Today, however, affordable laser printers are manufactured by a number of traditional printer companies, and allow for excellent quality laser printers to be acquired at prices similar to those of inkjet printers. With this new price point, even moderate quantities of printing for work or school are generally enough to merit buying a laser printer, which greatly increase convenience and can also save money on ink in certain situations. For those looking for a laser printer on a budget, here are some of the best affordable laser printers available on the market.
Fast and reliable, the Samsung Xpress is a laser printer that will streamline the printing you need done for work or school. Specifically, this laser printer has excellent wireless functionality, allowing you to print both from a wireless computer or laptop and also from mobile devices like your phone or tablet. This black and white laser printer produces 21 pages a minute in print volume, all with ultra-consistent, high-quality results, making the Samsung Xpress one of the best wireless laser printers for the price.
