The IBM InfoPrint 1332 printer utilizes laser technology the production of monochrome printouts. It's suitable for use in a network of computers or in a work environment with light to heavy productivity requirements. Expanding this machine's capabilities is easy as there's sufficient room for expansion. With the high-yield toner inside it, producing high-quality printouts doesn't have to mean increased operation cost.

A 300MHz processor can be found inside it, a powerhouse which enables printing of up to 35 monochrome pages per minute. This rate is based on printing letter-sized documents, and will vary depending on the printer's setup or the page size it's working on. A 32MB memory comes installed upon purchase. But if more storage space for everyday printing requirements is needed, simply upgrade it to a max of 288MB RAM.

Laser printers are widely used because they can produce texts that are free of distortion and with impressive clarity. Keeping that reputation intact is the machine's printing resolution of as much as 1200 x 1200 dpi (dots per inch). What's more, IBM has also included the Image Enhancement Technology 1200 IQ. Combining such resolution and enhancement technology, text and grayscale images are rendered with professional quality each time.

It boasts of an input media capacity totaling to 350 sheets. This, thanks to the pair of media feeders present: a 250-sheet tray and another 100-sheet tray. This much input capacity spares the user from having to constantly restock paper on the tray. To see to it that meeting the required output volume is possible, IBM has set the duty cycle to 175000 pages per month. This number has to be met to make sure optimal printer performance is enjoyed.

The InfoPrint 1332 laser printer can work with varying media dimensions like letter, legal, executive, folio, statement, A4, A5 and A6. Supported media kinds are regular paper, card stocks, labels, envelopes, transparencies and others designed for use on a laser printer. When it comes to envelope sizes, supported ones are US no. 9, com-10, monarch, international B5, international C5 and international DL.

Parallel IEEE 1284 and USB are the connectivity interfaces available. Regardless of the scale, attaching this machine to a network of computers is hassle-free. This is especially true as it has support for different operating systems. With the high-yield toner installed, operation cost can be maintained to a minimum. It's also possible to print numerous small-scale documents on a single paper sheet, thanks to the multi-up feature. With this, office supplies can be conserved.

IBM PPDS, PostScript 3, IPDS, PCL 6 and PDF are the printer languages available. When it comes to typefaces, those available include 44 PPDS fonts, 158 PostScript 3 fonts and 91 PCL fonts. For two-sided paper printing, an optional duplex may be installed. It's also possible to combine printing, copying, scanning and faxing tasks into a single machine with the use of the MFP option.

Weighing less than 38 pounds, the IBM InfoPrint 32 printer has an enclosure measuring 16.6 inches wide, 13.6 inches tall and 19.6 inches thick. It will make heads turn no matter where you put it in the workplace as it has attractive curving lines. To ensure simple operation, there's a control panel in front which boasts of large buttons and an LCD screen. Even changing out toner is a snap. The features and IBM InfoPrint toner cartridges of this device allow you to get professional-looking printouts reliably and quickly.
