Less waste
Inkjet printers have fewer replacement parts than laser printers.
Business-level print quality
Print sharp text and graphics with vivid colors and smooth gradations.

Durable, fast-drying ink
Output from inkjet printers dries fast with less gloss, meaning you can write on the printed page without smudging or smearing the image.

1. Not all media types are supported for PCL printing.
2. Actual savings will vary based on print tasks, print volumes and usage conditions. Savings comparison based on the purchase cost of a replacement ink pack and the cost of enough mono toner cartridges to achieve the total page yields of the ink pack using the manufacturers' online prices and yields for the highest-capacity toner cartridges for the best-selling similarly featured mono laser printers priced at $999 (USD) with speeds of 40 ppm or less per industry-available data as of July 2019. 
3. Replacement ink pack yields are based on the ISO/IEC 24711 standard using the ISO/IEC 19752 pattern in default mode printing continuously. Ink pack yields vary considerably for reasons including images printed, print settings, temperature, humidity, and frequency of use. Yields may be lower when printing infrequently. Ink is used for printing and printer maintenance. For print quality, part of the ink from the included ink packs is used for printer startup and a variable amount of ink remains in the ink pack after the "replace ink pack" signal. For details, see
4. With two optional paper trays.
5. Compared to similarly featured mono laser printers priced at $999 or less and 40 ppm or less based on industry available data as of July 2019.  Actual power savings will vary by product model and usage.
