with the Laserjet Enterprise. This very fast laser printer produces top-notch
graphics that would allow personal users to print their own marketing materials.

touch, unlike most of its competitors.

quality products on paper up to tabloid size (11-by-17-inch). Another feature of this

quality is subpar compared to its competitors.

very capable and well-performing printer. Compact, this printer does a superb job of

printers, the Canon imagePROGRAF does offer many top-end features. The

drive, high quality resolution and it also uses a 5-color ink technology. The Canon
imagePROGRAF is only able to print on paper-like materials. Overall, this printer
offers everything and more that a wide format printer should offer.
