Paper Abstract

Electronic printing in black and white has now come of age. Both high and low speed laser printers now heavily populate the electronic printing marketplace. On the high end of the market, the Xerox 9700 printer is the market dominator while the Canon LBP-SX and CX engines dominate the low end of the market. Clearly, laser printers are the predominant monochrome electronic printing technology. Ink jet is now beginning to engage the low end printer market but still fails to attain laser printer image quality. As yet, ink jet is not a serious contender for the substantial low end laser printer marketplace served by Apple Computer's LaserWriter II and Hewlett-Packard's LaserJet printers. Laser printing generally dominates because of its cost/performance as well as the reliability of the cartridge serviced low end printers.
