Best laser printers of 2014

Updated

Up until recently, the shopping decision between laserjet and inkjet printers was clear: buy a laserjet for business productivity and text, and buy the inkjet for photo and graphics. The recent popularity of color laser multifunction printers is throwing out all those rules, meeting the demands of both amateur photographers and at-home professionals alike. Many of the modern laser printers can do just as much as their inkjet cousins, if not more in terms of speed and quality of fine lines. Take a look at our favorite laser printers below and see for yourself.
