What's the best font for printing on a LED-printer?

my impression is that text appears to be too thin, hence hard to read and appearing grey-ish, when using LaTeX. It may look reasonable when viewing a pdf, but it's worse than e.g. Word or any other textprocessor when printed.

Probably good solutions are already known: Which are they?

EXAMPLE 1, straight forward, KOMA-script:

\documentclass[paper=a4]{scrartcl}   % implicit font selection
\usepackage{blox}

\begin{document} ...

EXAMPLE 2, from some website, business letter:

\documentclass{g-brief2}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}   % <<<
\usepackage[ngerman]{babel}
\usepackage{blindtext}
\usepackage{lmodern}   % <<<
... % setting lot's of variables for the letters content
\begin{document}
    \begin{g-brief}
...

Scanned printouts:

  • Word font is about double in "thickness"
  • what's grey-ish on print is fuzzy here

Thanks for sharing your insights :)

P.S.: If that's relevant, my printer is a Samsung ML-3310D (but that shouldn't matter much, I suppose)
