Key Features

Print Speed (colour)

'Print Speed' 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)

'Print Speed' 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

'Standard Input Capacity' 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

'Standard Output Capacity' 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.
