Most of my printing is mono. Village magazine and various secretarial responsibilities so a laser makes sense. The old Epson 870 colour, comes out of the cupboard every other week or so for a photo etc.
I bought this printer (its a Laser woodchip!)because a cheaper Epson laser had become very choosy and wasteful over paper handling.
When there's serious printing to be done, the laser can rattle off crisp pages at one every two seconds except for complex files and this A5 problem.
Its only a matter of speed, I'm splitting hairs I know, but I am curious and would like a rational explanation.
