Compact laser printers fit in a class all of their own. They aren't as compact and portable as inkjet printers, nor do they have the ability to create lab quality photographs like inkjets do. Generally the upfront price for laser printers is more than most want to pay, and the majority don't come with tons of features and functions either. Though they do lack a lot of things, printers that use toners tend to offer a lot of positives too, like a low cost per page. The Canon LBP-810 is a monochrome printer made for desktops and home office use.
