Best Printer Brands

Home office printer

Did you know that inkjet printers are fast approaching the print quality of laser printers, while using a tiny fraction of the electricity that a laser printer does?

Gone are the days of dot matrix printing, where laser printing was an elusive and expensive quality that only businesses could afford. And that only for official reports.

Now inkjet printers provide photo quality printing using cheap printers that are easily affordable for homes, small offices and other budget conscious consumers. However, beware of cartridge prices when buying printers. Printers are often sold cheap, while printer cartridges are expensive.

Compare all the printer brands and models in the Pakistani market by energy efficiency and power consumption, as well as cartridge costs per page, in the table below. Only those printers are shown that had some electricity consumption information available. The table is sorted by electricity consumption while printing. P: Print; C: Copy; S: Scan; F: Fax.
