Just a few years ago, the laser printer was a new and rather expensive gadget with a promising but unknown future. Today, many laser printers sell on the street for less than $1000. They are fast and reliable, and can produce a variety of high‐quality output. In fact, laser printers now provide a base‐line against which other types of printers should be compared. This article discusses the principal non‐laser types of printers, including dot‐matrix, daisy‐wheel, and ink‐jet printers. Examples of currently available dot‐matrix and ink‐jet printers are discussed.
