All For One, One For All

PC Lingo

Before you go out and buy that network laser printer, make sure you know the terminology:

  • Duplexing: printing on both sides of a single page
  • Duty cycle: capacity for the number of pages that can be printed in a given time
  • Ethernet: a networking connection standard
  • Infrared port: a transmitter/receiver that enables peripherals with built-in infrared beams to communicate with the printer without cables
  • Security bin: a lockable tray in which to receive "for-your-eyes-only," confidential documents
  • Usage profile: print job and condition status, such as "Low Toner."
