    1. Normal (600×600 dpi)
    2. High Quality (600×600 dpi)
    3. Super Fine (1200×1200 dpi)

Normal (600 x 600 dpi)
This is the default print quality setting. When this setting is selected, the printer will print documents in 600 x 600 dpi (dots per inch). This mode ensures the fastest possible print speed in a good print quality. We recommend this option if you are generally printing text documents with occasional graphics.

High Quality (600 x 600 dpi)
This mode offers the good image print quality, however, print speed will be reduced compare to the Normal mode as the printer must perform additional calculations to improve the print quality of the images. However, if you generally print text, then we recommend the Normal option as print speed is faster.

Super Fine (1200 x 1200 dpi)
This mode offers the best possible print quality, however, print speed will be reduced as the printer must perform additional calculations to improve the print quality. We recommend this setting if you wish to ensure the best possible graphics, photos and fine line images print quality. However, if you generally print text, then we recommend the Normal 600 x 600 dpi option.
