Black and colour print speeds are measured in accordance with ISO/IEC 24734. Actual print times will vary based on factors including system configuration, software, and page complexity. For more information, visit
www.epson.com.au | †† Maximum print speeds are measured with text patterns in Draft Mode on plain paper. Actual print times will vary based on factors including system configuration, software, and page complexity. | ††† Black
and colour copy speeds (cpm) are determined in default, single-side mode, in accordance with ISO/IEC 29183. Actual copy times will vary based on factors including system configuration and page complexity. For more information,
visit www.epson.com.au | 1 Not all media types are supported for PCL printing. | 2 Replacement ink pack yields are estimated based on ISO/IEC 24711 test in Default Mode printing continuously. Ink pack yields vary considerably for
reasons including images printed, print settings, temperature and humidity. Yields may be lower when printing infrequently or predominantly with one ink colo ur. All ink colours are used for printing and printer maintenance, and all
colours have to be installed for printing. 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
www.epson.com.au | 3 Monthly duty cycle up to 45,000 is the highest duty a user could expect in a month, based on near constant operation of a device of this kind. It is not recommended that the device be run at this duty. For
best device performance, run the device at the recommended duty of 2,500 pages per month. | 4 Most features require an Internet connection to the printer, as well as an Internet- and/or email-enabled device. For a list of Epson
Connect enabled printers and compatible devices and apps, visit www.epson.com.au | 5 Scan to cloud requires an internet connection, a free Epson Connect account and a destination email address or cloud storage account. For a
list of supported cloud services, visit www.epson.com.au | 6 Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™; level of performance subject to the range of the router being used. Wi-Fi Direct may require printer software. | 7 Only printing and scanning are
supported under Windows Server OS. | 8 Some applications and/or functions may not be supported under Mac OS X. | 9 Based on ENERGY STAR TEC measurement methodology; 288 prints/day; actual electricity consumption may
vary depending on printer use. For more information, see www.energystar.gov | 10 Internet access is required to install all OS drivers and software. | 11 For convenient and reasonable recycling options, visit www.epson.com.au |
