One widespread type of computer printer is the laser printer. The laser printer quickly creates high-quality graphics and text on paper. Laser printers use a xerographic printing method, similar to that used by multi-function printers and digital photocopiers. Laser printers, however, distinctly vary from analog photocopying machines as the image is created through direct scanning of a laser beam by the photoreceptors in the printer. A laser ray imposes an image of the page for printing on a charged rotating cylinder. The cylinder is covered with selenium. Photoconduction eliminates the charge from the light-exposed areas. By heat and direct contact, the cylinder prints the image onto the paper. Through this, the ink is combined with the paper. Laser printers have a prominent advantage over other printer types. Laser printer speeds cover a wide range, unlike the impact printers.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
Printer speed also depends on various factors, such as the graphic complexity of the existing job. The speediest laser printer models can produce more than 200 monochrome pages every minute (around 12,000 pages every hour). The fastest models can print over a hundred colored pages every minute (around 6000 pages per hour). The most sophisticated laser printers are utilized for mass production of customized documents, including utility bills and credit card bills. These models compete with lithographic printers used for many commercial purposes. The cost of employing this technology is based on many factors, which also include paper and toner cost, the frequency of cylinder replacement, and fuser assembly and transfer assembly maintenance. Printers that have cylinders made of soft plastic can eventually cost the user more than expected, as replacement of the cylinder is expensive.
