Lomond EvoJet Office review

A fast, cheap workgroup inkjet printer with a touted printing speed of 60 pages per minute (ppm) thanks to waterfall printing technology.

Price
£549

The key to the EvoJet's speed is a unique print head, produced by US firm Memjet. Regular inkjets have a narrow head which must travel back and forth to cover the page, whereas the EvoJet's huge head covers the entire width of the paper path. Instead of stepping sheets through to give the print head time to move, the paper transport simply keeps running; the stationary head sprays the paper with a 'waterfall' of ink as it passes underneath.

The EvoJet is capable of mimicking laser printing speeds due to the waterfall design of the print head

The resulting print speeds are more like those of a laser printer, but the EvoJet retains several inkjet advantages. Key among these is that there's no fuser to warm up, so the first page output time should be consistent regardless of how recently the printer's been used. As fusers are power hungry, going without one also means a printer uses less electricity, generates less heat and needs less cooling which can also be noisy.

On the negative side, the EvoJet doesn't have the durability of a laser: with a recommended monthly duty of up to 4,000 pages, it's only going to be suitable for smaller workgroups.
