Laser Printers Without The Power-On Surge?
October 19, 2011 1:14 PM Subscribe
You know that power surge that happens when you turn on a laser printer and it sucks up as much juice as it can? Are there laser printers that don't do that?
I'm replacing a Brother HL-2170W. I need good quality monochrome printing. No scanning, photos, etc. Small and quiet are pluses. Wireless is a must. I'll use it with a MacBook.
Every laser printer I've had dims the lights, etc., when it powers up. What should I look for in the specs to identify printers that minimize this? Wattage? Are guides/reviews online that address this issue?
