There’s a common saying “you don’t know what you have until it’s gone”.

We’ve talked to Richard Tubb, founder of Tubblog, about how difficult your life can be if you lose one of your tech treasures.

There are several advantages and disadvantages of laser and inkjet printers.

Laser printers:

Generally these are better in an office environment as the price per copy is a lot lower with a laser printer, they are also quicker and quieter. The disadvantages are that the initial cost is often higher and they are physically larger units due to the size of the toners, drums, fuser etc.

Inkjet printers:

These are cheaper to buy initially but are more costly to run. They do have the advantage of being able to print onto CDs, T-Shirts etc. However, they are less reliable than a laser printer and need cleaning out quite regularly.
