The settings are as follows and printing is performed as standard.

The same data was printed using "PIXUS MP 620" which was originally in the editorial department, and the required time was about 2 minutes 17 seconds, so that the printing time has been reduced by about 40 seconds in "PIXUS MG 6330" understood.

Regarding the image quality when printing sentences and the like on plain paper, there was no dramatic difference as seen by naked eyes, so I want to carry out color printing as fast as possible! It seems to be okay if you replace it.
