Laser printers are much faster than ink. Next time she complains and dosent learn you should shove that old printer inside her ass.
Actually got shouted at? Who does that?
Well, if your own tech fails you can farm out the printing to a local print shop. Office printers may not be designed to handle that kind of abuse.
@Demolishun Laser printers are designed for huge batches. That is why photocopiers use laser not ink (i know that they used laser way back before they had cameras but... still)
Ink is ready to go always but only if you can print every now and again (nozzles and ink drying off in them...)
I have a felling that they (industry) had been prefering dot matrix over ink too because of robustness but i need additional data to prove it.
But it makes sense imo, ink is cheap shit and for high loads, low maintenance dot matrix and lasers are the best.
To conclude: i dont see any problem using laser or dot matrix in a office when we talk about robustness, but that ink one might break soon (but some ink printer build back then were tanks! I still use my brother dcp 150c!
(not sure about the model,might check tommorow))
@Gregozor2121 I just searched for a laser printer of any type and grabbed its datasheet:
The monthly recommended sheet volume is 4000 pages/month. I am sure there are higher end printers out there though that do more. I first noticed this spec on a dot matrix we bought lately.
