*1 When using the <Fax>, <Scan and Send>, or <Scan and Store> function, you can scan the originals up to 301 mm x 424 mm (A3+) or 283.4 mm x 435.8 mm (11x17+).
*2 When the <LTRR/STMT Original Selection> setting is used, the scanner is able to detect whether the original is LTRR or STMT.
*3 Activation time may vary, depending on the environment and conditions under which the machine is being used.
*4 If <Quick Startup Settings for Main Power> is set to "On", it takes 4 seconds until the key operation on the touch panel display is available after turning on the main power of the machine. Depending on the situations, the machine does not startup quickly.
*5 The copy speed on A4 size plain paper on one-sided printing is measured during continuous copying. Copy speeds vary depending on the output resolution, the paper type and size, and the paper feeding direction. Copy speeds on smaller paper sizes may be slower. Plus, the machine may experience downtime or decrease the copy speed in the middle of a continuous copy run to adjust the temperature inside the machine or maintain the optimal print quality.
