Printer DPI

  rupie 10:00 26 Mar 04

looking for new printer to replace aging canon (good printer just old) All new printers have dpi quoted eg 2880x720 or just 5760 optimised. I understand the basic meaning of Dpi relating to resolution but what do the above figures mean ??

it means a whole lot better than 300 dpi, like what we used to have.

2,880 x 720 is the resolution across the paper feed, while 720 is the resolution along the paper feed (or is vice versa?) I haven't a clue what optimised means, but I guess it is much the same hype as RET = resolution enhancement technology.

Resolution is so high nowadays that there seems little to choose between modern printers here. Better take a look at some actual printouts to see what the quality is really like. The numbers have become meaningless.

dpi = dot per inch
