Excellent Print Quality
In our standard ISO test with 5% ink coverage, it printed 5 A4 pages in only 29 sec with first page out in 10 seconds. While testing the duplex printing, it printed 21 pages and missed 4 out of 25 in 1 minute and 50 seconds. In another single side printing it took about 1 minute 40 seconds to print 20 pages and missed 5 out of 25.

The test included text pages, graphics pages and pages with mixed content for both black and white and color. The output quality is excellent and text looked sharp and detailed. With graphics, colors are bright and well saturated. We did not find any significant issues in our tests and the output quality is superb for PowerPoint handouts or word documents going to clients or colleagues . The colors or black ink did not get smudged when brought in contact with water.

It copied 1 B/W page in 1 minute 37 seconds while the color took 1 minute 38 seconds. Output quality is good enough for any business use.

Scanning performance
It has a flatbed, ADF scanner, to test the scanning capabilities, we scanned mix of pages (includes images and texts). While scanning pages using PC it took only 13 seconds on 600 dpi for one image. We scanned 25 pages which took 2 min 42 seconds and while scanning 15 pages from both sides, it took only 2 minutes.
