Methodology

Laser quality black and color print speeds are determined in default, single-side mode in accordance with ISO/IEC 24734. Actual print times will vary based on system configurations, software version, and page complexity.

Test patterns used

A set of four pages are printed in various formats (Word®, Excel®, & Adobe® Reader) as defined by the ISO/IEC 24734 standard.
