P rint speed is based on printing the suite of ISO/IEC 24734 text and graphic images on 8.5" x 11" size pages.
Speed of up to 16.5 pages per minute is based on draft mode. Actual print times will vary based on system
configuration, software, and page complexity.
The printable area is fixed relative to the left tractor starting at .51" (12.9 mm) from the left edge of the media.
Right margin may be greater than .51" (12.9mm) if the media extends well past the printable area.
Plain paper.
Cartridge yields vary considerably for reasons including images printed, print settings, temperature and humidity.
Yields will be lower with higher-density images, hot or dusty conditions, less frequent printing, or printing predominantly with one color. All ink colors are used for printing and printer maintenance, and all colors have to be
installed for printing. For print quality, part of the ink from the included cartridges is used for printer startup and a
variable amount of ink remains in the cartridges after the "replace cartridge" signal.
