Order of presentation Products are ranked according to their annual electricity cost, which has been calculated by topten. The order of presentation can be changed by clicking the tables’ headings.
Electricity costs (€ in 5 years) Assumptions:
Printers: 24 hours in Sleep mode mode
Multifunctionals: 24 hours in Sleep mode
Costs for electricity when in Sleep mode during 10 years (device’s mean life time)
Tariff of electricity : 0.20 €/kWh. (This should be understood as order of magnitude as there can be large differences depending on country or electrical utility.)
The real electricity costs strongly depend on individual user behaviour.
Printing speed, b/w and colour (ipm) Maximum printing speed in pages (A4) per minute (ipm), measured according to ISO/IEC 24734.
Power Off (Watt) Power input in Watt when switched off, but not disconnected. Since January 2013, the max. allowed power in Off mode is 0.5W.
Power Sleep (W) Power input when in the Sleep mode, in Watt. The Sleep mode is the mode of lowest power input which can be automatically reached by a device without switching off (definition by Energy Star). To reach functionality from this mode can be connected with a time lag.
Paper size Maximum paper size.
Resolution Maximum resolution when printing or copying (dpi = dot per inch)
Two-sided output Also called duplexing: capability to print on both sides of a sheet.
Available in countries
This item displays the availability of models in European countries according to producers’ declarations, national Topten sites. "EU" means all countries of the European Union. However, the availability is sometimes difficult to define precisely depending on retailers' selling decisions or if the supply is stated as possible on catalogues but there is no marketing for specific products in some countries. "On demand" means, that producers could not indicate the availability and that consumers have to ask in their countries on their own. The country codes are according to ISO.
