- Choose from standard or high-yield All-In-One (AIO) print cartridge technology to streamline consumables purchasing and inventory.
- Replace top-loading AIO print cartridges in seconds without IT support. Return depleted cartridges for recycling at no cost.
- Deliver up to 21 pages-per-minute in color, black-and-white or mixed output for consistent, reliable performance during every print job.
- Create high-quality business documents with crisp lines and vivid colors with true 600 x 600 dpi to 2,400 x 600 dpi equivalent resolution without losing any output speed.
- Enhance productivity and minimize wait times for prints with first print speeds of less than 14 seconds for full color and black and white, and fast warm-up times of 30 seconds or less.
- Expedite print queues and manage multiple jobs with ease via a powerful 400 MHz controller and 256MB RAM. An optional external wireless Ethernet adapter simplifies shared use in expanding offices.
- Support a variety of network environments with PCL and PostScript 3 emulation including both Windows and Macintosh network environments, IPv6 and Bonjour applications and Citrix MetaFrame distributed print environments.
- Manage printer network settings, fleet utilization and check consumable levels remotely with Web Image Monitor.
- Accommodate thicker paper stocks with up to 42 lb. Bond/83 lb. Index and meet a wider range of print demands, including labels, transparencies and envelopes.
