My experience is that the low-end color laser printers don't offer that accurate of color. If you want something that is going to offer reasonably accurate color for proofing, then you'll need one of the better Xerox, Tektronix, or Canon printers that allows you to accurately calibrate color as well as add on some kind of a RIP, Fiery being the best of the ...

Printing to the edge of a page is done because of bleeds: a portion of the layout that extends beyond the trim size of a document after trimming.

Proofing is hard to do well on a small budget. An inexpensive color laser won't give color-accurate proofs for anything other than itself. An inkjet may be expensive per copy, but unless you have a need to produce several proofs per day, it is a less-expensive alternative than a high-end (Fiery-driven, Postscript-aware) laser or a Xerox Phaser (solid wax, ...

Its the same thing and it does not affect in any way the ...

I worked at a graphic design studio and all our large scale printers were Epson. These provided some of the most accurate colors I've seen from any printer. Since then I've only used Epson for home office use, with genuine Epson ink. Yes, they can be expensive but there are many advantages to using genuine inks. My old CX7800 is still going strong.
