First, according to the purchase budget, according to the printing speed, printing quality, printing function and configuration to select. Color laser printer uses color cartridge, color cartridge color is divided into red, yellow, blue, plus basic black. When purchasing, you need to pay attention to whether it is drum powder separation consumables, otherwise the selenium drum will also be replaced irregularly as consumables.
The printer market has been quietly refreshed by laser printers and color inkjet printers. The boring office environment has suddenly become quiet. The low-cost color inkjet printers quietly output colorful manuscripts. The high-quality and fast monochrome laser printers make the output of manuscripts a matter of a flash. They rely on their low demand for paper Summation output of high speed and quickly become the preferred output device of modern office.
But after the user use and inspection found that both have their own insurmountable defects, monochrome laser printer can not print color documents, color inkjet printer printing color documents costs too much, and the paper requirements are also very high, become a low price to buy, high price luxury. Therefore, the color laser printer, which integrates the advantages of color inkjet printer and monochrome laser printer and discards the disadvantages of the two, emerges as the times require, and completely solves the above problems. The professional printing quality and automatic double-sided printing function of the color laser printer can create pleasant press releases, brochures and flyers for users. At present, there are many kinds of color laser printers on the market, and the prices and grades are different. How to choose a color laser printer that is suitable for you? Here, we will talk about the selection strategy from its printing quality, printing speed, printing cost, reliability, network performance, after-sales service and so on, for your reference.
1、 Price of the whole machine
价格对一件商品的销售有着不可低估的推动作用。虽然一分货一分价是市场竞争永恒不变的法则，但对于绝大多数人来说，价格往往左右着消费者的购买欲。正如前几年的彩色喷墨打印机，就是从它那高昂的价格上显示出其珍贵。而如今，身价大跌，成为众多 PC 商的一种赠品。彩色激光打印机也一样，在去年的今天，它还养在深闺人未识，价格贵得令人咋舌，四季轮回，眼下它已变得平易近人了，成为一些家庭用户开始考虑配备的输出设备。市场上常见的有 HP、EPSON、Canon、LEXMARK 和联想等几种品牌，价格在 5000 元-14000 元之间，可根据自己的实际情况灵活选用。
Price plays an important role in promoting the sales of a commodity. Although “one price for one goods” is an eternal rule of market competition, for the vast majority of people, price often affects consumers’ desire to buy. Just like the color inkjet printer in the past few years, it shows its value from its high price. But now, the price drops sharply, becomes one kind of gift which multitudinous PC business. The color laser printer is also the same. Today last year, it is still unknown to people in the boudoir, and its price is staggering. Now it has become approachable, and has become an output device that some home users begin to consider. HP, Epson, Canon, Lexmark and Lenovo are common brands in the market. The price ranges from 5000 yuan to 14000 yuan, which can be selected flexibly according to their own actual situation.
2、 Print quality
打印质量也就是人们时常所说的打印效果，它是指彩色激光打印机在打印不同对象时所表现出来的效果。这是选购彩色打印机最基本也是最重要的因素之一。事实上，打印彩色图像与打印彩色图形和表格时，对彩色的合理分配是完全不同的，用户利用已经得到的品质优良的彩色图像效果，不一定能获得引人注目的彩色图案、图形和表格。若能采用优秀的彩色图形处理软件来重新调整打印，用户就有可能获得意想不到的打印效果。如某些打印软件不仅能正确区分不同算法处理点阵图像、失量图形和文本等，还支持 sRGB、Pantone、ColorSync、ICC 等行业色彩匹配标准，它们可以为用户在彩色图像输出过程中，正确处理图像的色彩关系起到重要作用。所以用户在选择彩色激光打印机时，首先要了解设备在彩色输出方面所拥有的彩色打印新技术和软件功能有多少，以及这些新技术与新功能是否适应自己彩色打印中的需求。
Printing quality is also known as printing effect, which refers to the effect of color laser printer when printing different objects. This is one of the most basic and important factors in choosing a color printer. In fact, when printing color images and printing color graphics and tables, the reasonable allocation of color is completely different. Users may not be able to obtain eye-catching color patterns, graphics and tables by using the high-quality color image effects. If you can use excellent color graphics processing software to readjust the printing, users may get unexpected printing effect. For example, some printing software can not only correctly distinguish different algorithms for processing dot matrix image, loss figure and text, but also support sRGB, Pantone, colorsync, ICC and other industry color matching standards. They can play an important role in correctly processing image color relationship in the process of color image output. Therefore, when users choose color laser printer, they should first understand how many new color printing technologies and software functions the device has in color output, and whether these new technologies and functions can meet the needs of their own color printing.
3、 Printing speed
人类自始自终都在追求速度，电脑的高速更新换代便是一个很好的佐证。速度往往是衡量一个物件价值的重要砝码，彩色激光打印机也一样。打印速度也与许多因素相关联，如标称的引擎速度、处理器的主频、是否配备专用图像处理芯片、内部数据通道位数、能否同时处理多幅图像、采用的网络接口技术、是否支持 100M 高速以太网等等。一般用户特别关心引擎速度，也就是我们常说的 PPM。因此，在选购时必须注意厂商所标称的 PPM 数值。在大多数情况下，我们关注的都是最佳质量打印模式下的 PPM 数，而有些厂家在宣传时所说的打印速度是指草稿模式下的打印速度，这和最佳模式下的速度相去甚远，这一点，在购买彩色激光打印机时尤需加以注意，必须向厂家或其它代理商询问清楚，毕竟我们是在追求最佳打印质量的前提下追求速度的，这才是我们选购彩色激光打印机的初衷。
Human beings have been pursuing speed all the time, and the high-speed update of computers is a good proof. Speed is often an important weight to measure the value of an object, so is the color laser printer. The printing speed is also related to many factors, such as the nominal engine speed, the main frequency of the processor, whether it is equipped with a special image processing chip, the number of internal data channels, whether it can process multiple images at the same time, the network interface technology, whether it supports 100m high-speed Ethernet, etc. General users are particularly concerned about engine speed, which is often referred to as ppm. Therefore, we must pay attention to the manufacturer’s nominal ppm value when purchasing. In most cases, we focus on ppm in the best quality printing mode The printing speed mentioned by some manufacturers in the publicity refers to the printing speed in the draft mode, which is far from the speed in the best mode. We should pay special attention to this point when purchasing color laser printers. We must ask the manufacturers or other agents clearly. After all, we are pursuing the speed on the premise of pursuing the best printing quality. This is our choice of color laser printers The original intention of color laser printer.
4、 Print reliability
可靠性是我们选购任何电器产品时首先考虑的因素，任何产品缺乏可靠性，我想傻子也不买。我们这里所说的可靠性，并非单纯指彩色激光打印机的质量，侧重于指彩色输出品质、效果、引擎速度、打印速度以外的对打印负荷的承受能力。因为衡量打印机的可靠性的很重要的技术指标就是打印负荷。这个指标以月为衡量单位。如果某台打印机 A 的打印负荷达到每月 6 万页，那它就比打印负荷仅为每月 12000 页的打印机 B 可靠性要高很多。所以，用户在为自己选择彩色激光打印机时，可以偏向于选择负荷量较大一点的设备。此外有些打印机还提供新颖的基于控制面板的真正的在线式帮助，当打印机显示错误信息时，用户可以通过打印机的控制面板得到有效的帮助和提示，可以自己动手排除故障，省心省事。
Reliability is the first consideration when we buy any electrical products. If any product lacks reliability, I don’t think a fool will buy it. The reliability we are talking about here does not simply refer to the quality of the color laser printer, but mainly refers to the ability to bear the printing load beyond the color output quality, effect, engine speed and printing speed. Because the very important technical index to measure the reliability of the printer is the printing load. This indicator is measured in months. If the printing load of a printer a reaches 60000 pages per month, it will be much more reliable than that of printer B whose printing load is only 12000 pages per month. Therefore, when users choose color laser printer for themselves, they can prefer to choose the equipment with larger load. In addition, some printers also provide novel real online help based on the control panel. When the printer displays error information, users can get effective help and prompt through the control panel of the printer, and they can solve the problem by themselves.
5、 Network performance
对目前的购买群加以细分不难发现，彩色激光打印机主要应用于工作组以上的商用办公领域，因此彩色激光打印机的网络性能也是不可忽视的重要一项。网络性能主要包括网络打印速度、对各种网络设备的支持情况、打印机在网络上的安装难易程度以及打印机的网络管理功能等。能良好的与各种设备进行连接使用;在各种网络中(如以太网、NovellNetWare、AppleTalk 等)中可以正常使用;支持多种网络操作系统(如 NovellNetWare、MicrosoftWindowsNTServerV3.1/3.5/4.0、IBMOS/2 等)，这些都是衡量彩色激光打印机网络性能的重要指标，它将给我们今后的生活、工作带来无以言表的好处。
It is not difficult to find that the color laser printer is mainly used in the commercial office field above the working group, so the network performance of the color laser printer is also an important item that can not be ignored. Network performance mainly includes network printing speed, support for various network devices, the difficulty of printer installation on the network and the network management function of the printer. It can be used in various networks (such as Ethernet, Novell Netware, AppleTalk, etc.); Support a variety of network operating systems (such as Novell Netware, Microsoft Windows NT server v3.1 / 3.5 / 4.0, ibmos / 2, etc.), these are important indicators to measure the network performance of color laser printer, it will bring us unspeakable benefits in our future life and work.
6、 After sales service
After sales service is a trump card for businesses to compete for the market. Therefore, all major manufacturers attach great importance to after-sales service and raise it to the same position as quality. Generally speaking, manufacturers promise free maintenance for one year, but there is a big difference between free and free maintenance. Color laser printer is a large electrical appliance, which can’t be moved as easily as notebook computer. This requires manufacturers to provide free door-to-door service nationwide. If manufacturers can’t or can’t provide door-to-door service, it’s quite troublesome for users to transport by themselves. It’s not only time-consuming, but also troublesome. Therefore, good after-sales service must not be ignored, it is related to whether you can use an important guarantee of comfort.
