When trying to decide if you need to make the change from inkjet cartridges to the TN1050 toner, there are several factors that can help you decide. Printer toner is a powder based substance as opposed to inkjet cartridge that is actually liquid ink. Laser toner printers in general print much faster than their inkjet counterparts. Because of the precision of the laser toner over ink, images will print clearer and faster than inkjet printers (unless you are using a photo image quality printer). The number of pages you are able to print will be greatly increased before you have to replace the printer toner. Laser toner printers, are however, more expensive to buy than inkjet printers but the mono laser printers can be particularly good value when compared to the colour laser printers. Also, inkjet cartridges are prone to clogging and that is something that won’t happen with a laser toner cartridge.
The laser printer also takes longer to warm up than the inkjet printer and if a TN1050 toner was to leak it can be very messy inside the printer. The laser printer can also handle a variety of different paper types (weights and finishes) whereas the inkjet printer is limited in this area. Deciding on whether or not you would like to move from inkjet printer to laser printer depends on what you want to print and what quantity you want to print. If you are likely to use large volumes of text content documents in the home or office then the TN1050 will be ideal for you.
