  2. It prints on full size 8.5″ x 11″ paper
  3. It is fast, printing up to 6 pages per minute

''Ordered a touchpad and received a call from the company within the hour to verify I had ordered the right touchpad. When my software was confirmed, the man said it would be shipped right away. I was really surprised to receive it in only two days! I called customer service to inquire about the driver, the man stayed on the line and instructed me step-by-step through testing the pad to make sure it was working. WOW, is all I can say (PS: I am not usually impressed and do not write reviews, but this company blew me away!) ''
