Key Features

Print Speed (colour)

This measures how long it takes the inkjet printer to print a single colour A4 page at normal quality.

A faster print speed means the inkjet printer is more efficient and can manage larger print jobs faster.

Print Speed (black)

This measures how long it takes the inkjet printer to print a single black & white A4 page at normal quality.

A faster print speed means the inkjet printer is more efficient and can manage larger print jobs faster.

Standard Input Capacity

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