Printer Update #2

By , November 6, 2007 5:30 pm

There is now a NEW printer in Reference. It’s a large industrial model that sits on the floor like the one in the Science Library. It holds 4,000 sheets at one time and the toner lasts about twice as long. It’s quieter than the other ones and faster (about 55 pages per minute one side), duplexes just fine and DOESN’T JAM! (At least, that’s the word on the street. I’ve already seen it printing a ton and no problems.)

Our smaller printers are made for office use, not the heavy use they receive here from all the students, so the industrial printer is a better solution all around.

They’re still testing the drivers to make sure we’ve got the best service possible, so for now the office computers and student laptops will print to the same smaller one as they’ve been doing for a few days now. All the lab computers, though, are going to the big new one. So far, all seems good.
