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.
