I have always done a lot of printing on my (black+white) laser printer. I love the speed of printing, long lasting ink, easy and fast duplexing, and the quality. I frequently print papers to read, documentation, board game rules, etc.
And I have always had a color inkjet printer, upgraded through the years, but never a pleasure to use. Too slow, ink is too EXPENSIVE, and dries out from infrequent use, slow startup times, waste of space.
I would only use the color inkjet on the rare occasions when I needed color -- most of the time if it was a document with just a little color or where I didn't care, I'd print on the laser in black and white.
But I finally bit the bullet and bought a color laser (HP Color LaserJet Pro M255dw for about $350).
It feels like a bresh of fresh air. It has almost all the advantages of the black and white laser, but I now can print out documents with some color in them, and just have to deal with 1 printer.
Now if you need to print photos, then the color laser is not going to satisfy you; inkjets produce far better nice glossy color photos.
But for everything else it's been a joy and a relief to not have to mess with the inkjet.
I'll also say, I do think the black pure text printing from the color laser is *slightly* worse quality than my previous black+white laser, but especially with my eyes not being what they were, it's barely noticable and an easy trade off for me for the benefits of color printing. I'm so glad to be done with inkjets.
