The Snap printed rapidly, going at 1.0 pages for each moment for highly contrasting prints (coordinating the rate of the Canon Pixma Mini260) and at 1.1 ppm for shading prints (the quickest speed we gauged). Sadly, our judges weren’t inspired with the outcomes. At a separation, shading prints looked appealing, with precise hues and smooth tones; close up, be that as it may, we could obviously see tight banding over the entire of the print. Our highly contrasting specimen experienced a greenish tint, some graininess in graduated tones, and the same limited banding.
