With a new normal of working or studying from home, we find ourselves needing office- or university-like printing at home. Staring at a screen all day will give you headaches and all sorts of eyestrain, and thus, you need to be able to print out documents to give your eyes a break. It’s no secret that laser printers are cheaper in the long run when you have a lot of printing to do, which is why many people are opting for the higher initial costs at home and in small offices as well.
