A high sheet capacity, an Ethernet adapter and duplexing hardware are some characteristics of high-quality, fast laser printer. These characteristics are generally present in both photo and text-only printers as of 2015.
ComputerShopper.com offers rankings of a number of different high-quality laser printers. Many of these printers are designed for office and small business use and share common features such as Wi-Fi network connectivity, USB ports and Ethernet adapters. These features allow the user to perform wireless printing from any computer on a network or connect the printer to a specific computer.
Duplexing hardware is often present in larger laser printers for offices. This hardware enables the printer to print double-sided sheets without intervention by the user. Without duplexing hardware, the user must manually flip pages, which usually detracts from the overall printing speed.
A high sheet capacity may also help improve the speed of a printer, as the printer does not need to be refilled as often. For example, the Dell B3460dn Mono Laser Printer, cited by Computer Shopper as a fast laser printer, has a sheet capacity of up to 2,300. Another fast printer, the Dell B2360dn Mono Laser Printer, holds up to 550 sheets. For home use, a smaller printer with similar connectivity characteristics is likely adequate.
