*1 Print speed (Pages Per Minute) is calculated when printed on A4 plain paper in the fastest mode. Print speed may vary depending on system configuration, print mode, document complexity, software, type of paper used and connectivity. Print speed does not include processing time on host computer.

*2 Default mode in accordance with ISO7779 for MFPs.

*3 In accordance with ISO 24711/24712. Actual yields will vary considerably for reasons including images printed, print settings, temperature and humidity. Yields may be lower when printing infrequently or predominantly with one ink colour. A variable amount of ink remains in the cartridges after the "replace cartridge" signal. Part of the ink from the first cartridges is used for priming the printer. Ink is used for both printing and printhead maintenance. All inks are used for both black and colour printing.
