    • The Printer Driver Editor feature allows administrators to set and lock driver settings for individual users to enforce printing rules such as duplexing, N-up, and toner save mode, and even "hide" features from users to reduce TCO.
    • Genuine Adobe PostScript3, not emulation, is standard for improved printing performance with support for 136 Adobe fonts.
    • Increased security can be achieved with an optional 80 GB Hard Disk Drive (HDD). The HDD supports secure local document storage for up to 9,000 pages through the inclusion of a standard HDD Encryption Unit and the Data Overwrite Security System (DOSS).
