The reviews come from several online shops. Printers sorted first by number of reviews and then by average rating.

PPM : pages per minute.

N°1 : Brother MFC-9330CDW

This is the best printer with the most popularity. It prints 22 pages per minute, less than 3 seconds per page. With a resolution of 2400 x 600 dpi. It can print two-sided papers. The original cartridges are of high capacity (2600 pages). It starts in just seconds. Possibility to print from a smartphone. The fax is included. This is ideal if you are tired of inkjet printers.

N°2 : Brother MFC-9140CDN

This is the second printer, with a better rating but less notice. It has the same specificities. 2400 x 600 dpi, 22 ppm, 250-sheet tray. Ethernet connection. It costs substantially the same price. It is possible to find original color toners (brand Brother) much cheaper. It is therefore more interesting to acquire.

Laser printer vs inkjet printer

The toners of laser printers are expensive but the cost per page is the same as for an inkjet printer. The difference is that the powder-based toner does not dry and the ink does not become empty when the blotter cleans the print nozzle comparing to the ink jet cartridge. The resolution is half the inkjet printer’s one and is therefore suitable for printing color graphics or color documents. For photo printing, inkjet is the best option.
