On the flip side, the duplex printing under similar conditions has a print rate of 16 ppm for black and color documents. As these rates apply to A4 paper, the rates are different when using an A3 paper size. For instance, printing on A3 has a speed of 13 ppm for both black and color documents at simplex mode. On the other hand, duplex printing on A3 paper is about 11 ppm for color and monochrome documents.
But the maximum printing speeds are up to 34 ppm for both color and monochrome documents. Meanwhile, the optimum printing resolution is 4800 x 1200 dots per inch (dpi). The printing volume of the machine is up to 65,000 pages in a month, but the recommended book is lower than this value. However, the actual number of pages that the printer can produce depends on the printer’s performance, the print mode, and paper handling capacity.
As for the connectivity, the interface options include the hi-speed USB 2.0 port and an Ethernet interface (1000/100/10Base TX). The other options include a wireless LAN IEEE 802.11b/g/n and Wi-Fi direct printing. The compatible paper sizes of this machine have A4, A5, A6, B5, C4, #10, letter, legal, A3, A3+, and other measures. This machine can also hold up to 331 sheets of A4 paper and 80 sheets through the multipurpose (MP) tray. Download Mx397 driver from Website
