The IBM InfoPrint 1372 printer using InfoPrint 1372 laser toners is an auto duplex unit designed to accommodate all sizes of workgroups. The printer is multi-functional, offering the added options of using the unit as both a copier and a fax machine. Consolidating IT hardware and several added functions to the unit are available to make upgrading both time and cost effective for larger workgroups. As an added convenience, this model is compatible with both PCs and Macs and connectivity can be acquired using either a parallel port or USB cord.

Maximum operating capacity is obtained through the increase of total RAM. This model of the InfoPrint series uses PC-100 memory. At a fixed memory capacity of 64 MB the printer can be increased up to 320 MB. Use of memory modules of the highest capacity in both of the printer's memory sockets is the quickest way to obtain the optimum performance. In many instances the replacement of both pre-existing modules is needed in order to obtain RAM capacity.

Using the official utilities and driver program will provide optimal results. The IBM M22, M26 and M30 MFP are the available consolidation options. Photocopying, scanning, faxing and e-routing are provided through the M22 and M26 options. With the M22 option comes the AIMPLEX scanner that is capable of working at 15 impressions per minute. With the M26, color becomes available. Scanning capabilities of up to 23 pages per minute in monochrome can be had with the M30 MFP.

The ability to designate the specific functions to the printer allows workgroups to delegate hardware more efficiently. The IBM 1372 printer toner cartridge uses the high duty cycle to print up to 45 pages every minute. The unit has a depth of 20.21 inches and a total media capacity of 600 sheets. The paper loading trays can carry a combined load of 350 sheets, with 250 in the loading drawer, and 100 in the manual feed tray. Additionally, the 1372 offers advanced finishing options, a smart stapler, a 5 bin mailbox and legal-sized paper support.

While boasting a resolution of 1,200 x 1,200 dpi and the ability to print web images, the InfoPrint 1372 laser printer prints only in monochrome. These aspects of the printer's capabilities often make the unit best suited for printing larger manuscripts, proving most cost effective in this area and allowing for a clean, crisp clarity of the finished product and reducing employee wait time. In workgroups with multiple printing options, this unit allows for the swift completion of high volume jobs, while smaller, less efficient machines can be relegated to less demanding duties.

With the ability to increase RAM, photocopy and fax, the IBM InfoPrint 1372 is also an optimum space saver within the office and can eliminate the need to lease or service additional machines in order to fulfill office needs. This product also offers network scanning, allowing users to access documents through the print, fax and photocopy features of the machine. By consolidating all of these features, users are able to combine FTP and e-mail scanning on the one unit. When one function is in need of repair, the remaining functions can continue to be used. Each module can be replaced or repaired independent of the others.

If the use of the printer is maximized, overall economic efficiency is improved within the company's IT department. Wait time is minimized for even larger jobs, and device maintenance and repair expenditures are lowered. This is a documented trend within the work community. By minimizing hardware, companies minimize supply companies and the amount of supplies required to function.

This series was created out of a desire to stay competitive in a changing market. The InfoPrint 1372 is at the forefront of this market in its ability to offer multiple functions and produce quality printing at a rapid speed. The addition of memory upgrades and consolidation option increase the use value of this printer.

Each one of these pages is produced with just the quality one would expect with IBM InfoPrint 1372 bulk toner. From the most intricate to the most basic, quality extends through to the IBM toner. It's well known that exceptional toner provides for the sharpest prints.
