Difference between Toner & Ink Cartridge
Ink Cartridges are used in inkjet printers and contain liquid ink in small tanks or cartridges that is sprayed out in a microscopic mist over the designated print pattern.
Toner cartridge are used in laser printers and, instead of liquid ink, is a fine powder-based printing agent which is picked up by an electrically charged drum and rolls them onto the page according to the pattern you printed. A laser then fuses these particles to the page with heat.
Pros & Cons of Ink & Toner Cartridges
Fast Printing: Toner cartridges offer faster printing when operate with laser printers on whole due to the precision that is possible with a laser over a spray of ink and is by far more precise than even microscopic droplets of ink can be.
Picture Quality: Images come out more clearly and defined with toner cartridge contained laser printers which is not always be the case with a photo-grade inkjet printer. However, ink-based printed pages are actually more resistant to smudges and smears than toner.
Longevity & Durability: Compared to ink cartridges, toner cartridges based laser printers prints higher volume of pages, both due to its speed as well as the functional differences of the laser printer. Also, if an ink cartridge is unused for a period of time, the ink may dry and clog the print head.
Cost: Laser printers are more expensive than ink-based printers, but this costliness is made up with higher print yields and longevity. And though inkjet printers are less costly, this is often offset by the increased frequency with which you will be replacing the ink cartridges and produce fewer pages than toner-filled printers. The typical life of an inkjet cartridge might be 500 pages, whereas that of toner cartridges is at least 2,000 pages and cartridges for large laser printers last even longer.
Toner cartridge cost significantly more than inkjet cartridges do; but they also last much longer. For high volume printing, laser printers teaming with toner cartridges provide lower costs per page and are typically more reliable under heavy usage. So, if your business prints demands high volumes of black and white documents, a laser printer will most likely be your best bet, considering how long the toner cartridges will last.
