Full speed ahead !

It may be small, but don't let it's size fool you. The E321 delivers impressive high-speed performance coupled with a quick 9.5 seconds time-to-first-page. That means less time waiting for documents and more time spent on value-added tasks.

A job-cancellation button on the operating panel lets you stop print jobs instantly with just the touch of a finger. And you'll benefit from single-element print cartridges that are easy to install and replace, so you're always up and running.
