Key Features

Standard Input Capacity

This indicates the largest amount of paper that can be safely loaded into the printer at once.

Higher input capacities mean that you will be able to print more before having to refill the tray.

Standard Output Capacity

This indicates how many printed sheets of paper the output tray of the printer can hold before it starts to overflow.

A bigger output capacity means that the printer can print more/bigger jobs at once, and won't need to be looked after or the paper collected mid-job.

Energy Efficiency

Running Costs Over 10 Years

Inkjet printer running costs calculated based on an average of 20 minutes of use per week. The running cost comprises the electricity cost when using the inkjet printer and the electricity standby cost. Compare all energy saving inkjet printers.

Environmental Impact

We have calculated the amount of CO2 that will be generated by running each of these inkjet printers for 10 years. We have then converted that into the number of tree seedlings that you would need to plant and grow for 10 years in order to offset that amount of CO2.
