Printers have been around for a very long time. Unlike some of the other types of computer peripherals, they haven't really evolved all that much in terms of technologies and features. But that doesn't mean that printers lack variety because there are certainly plenty of types of printers to choose from. Essentially, cheaper printers have a few select features while the pricier multifunction printers go beyond printing by adding other related functions like scanning. Some printers are coloured while others print output faster by utilising a laser and toner. If you want to combine all of the good features of a printer, you will probably end up looking for a colour laser multifunction printer. These types of printers are very versatile because of these common features.High Speed Colour PrintingAll laser printers are faster than the inkjet printers because the printer does not have to move an ink cartridge back and forth to spray and mix the different ink colours. The precision of the laser greatly assists when it comes to printing speed. Depending on the colour laser multifunction printer that you choose, you may be able to notice some extra speed benefits because of processor and RAM specifications. Manufacturers openly show their processor clock speeds, available RAM, and estimated number of printed pages per minute to show just how much of an advantage you get over using a standard inkjet printer.Multifunction CapabilitiesColour laser printers can be faster than inkjet printers as well, but colour multifunction laser printers have key multifunction benefits that can save you time in doing repetitive tasks and can save a lot of office, home, or desk space. Even if the colour laser multifunction laser printer is large in size, having a separate laser printer, scanner, and fax machine each consume power and take up a connection port. A single multifunction printer gives you all the controls over one cable. Many of these models can function by themselves too. It is already getting more common for colour laser multifunction printers to have USB ports for flash drives and external hard drives and/or memory card slots so you can copy recognizable files like PDFs to these external storage devices so the printer can read them..Enhanced Paper ManagementMany multifunction printers have a rather boxy look because they need to store more paper. Multifunction printers is all about having the convenience of printing documents at high speeds so having a lack of paper management pretty much defeats the point. The exact number of sheets can vary but it usually involves over 200 sheets. Some of these printers have different trays for different paper sizes making them much better in terms of paper management.Printer UpgradabilityNobody likes to buy a new multifunction printer just because their existing multifunction printer simply isn't performing fast enough especially when trying to print very large documents. Fortunately, many of the multifunction colour laser printers offer some expansion options such as the ability to add RAM. Other printers that lack networking functionality may offer an upgrade for adding wireless capability. Some printers may support additional trays if these trays are purchased.These are just the basic features that are found in most multifunction colour laser printers available today. Be sure to check the features list of other models that fall in this category as you may discover something new.
