This is the type of printer that I would recommend for regular, professional home use because of the quality of the prints and the speed at which the printer prints pages at, which is on average 12 pages per minute, which accounts to one page every 5 seconds when using a moderate amount of ink. The printer delivers a marvellous output, and is surprisingly durable, and I know this because my family and I have certainly given it a few knocks that would undoubtedly damage other products beyond the damage caused on this particular printer.
The features are also varied in type and amount that are sufficient for home use, and installation is extremely easy, especially with well documented instructions on how to install and use the printer, making it particularly attractive to those who aren't very good with some of the modern day technology, and in my husband's personal opinion, he believes the thorough documentation really did help him along with developing his business. Also, the time it takes for a document to be sent from the computer to the printer through a USB cable is approximately 3 seconds, which is significantly faster than my previous industrial-use HP printer.
Other features include being able to print photos and various sized documents, envelopes, and even pages completely caked in ink right to the borders.
The printer comes in both a white, or black colour, and being a quarter of a metre tall, approximately 40 cm wide and 45 cm deep, it is extremely space consuming and weighing a major 18.2 kg it's extremely heavy for it's size although that's what you would expect it to weigh with all of that quality built into it, and it doesn't make much of a difference if it's stuck in one place and well-fitted to maximise spacing efficiency.
The printer has image enhancement technology that works exceptionally, and the difference is often noticeable, although there is a threshold to what the image enhancement technology can improve, as past a certain point, high quality prints can't become any higher.
The printer can also store up to 150 pages for printing in its memory at any one time, as well as having an output tray capacity of approximately 125 pages, and the tray is located at the top of the printer to make it easier for people to reach and collect. The printer is also compatible with Microsoft Windows 2000, Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Microsoft Windows XP, and Microsoft Windows Vista, Apple Mac OS X 10.3, Apple Mac OS X 10.2.8.
Ink efficiency isn't exactly at the best that it can be although the ink comes relatively cheap, and the ink is easily replaceable, and of course the software warns you when ink levels are low, and you can also check what level they are on too. The printer can be found on the market at a price of £189 including VAT, and that is a decent affordable price for people who work from home and need a printer to help their business excel.
