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 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.
