Printing Speed Versus Color

The BJC-5100 Series Printer Driver for Windows can interpret and
translate the full spectrum of colors, up to 16.7 million colors. When
printing in color, there is a significant increase in the amount of
information that the driver has to interpret and translate. When printing
with black ink only, the driver has only one color to interpret.

By decreasing the amount of colors that the printer driver has to
interpret, you can significantly decrease the time needed to translate
the information. This will speed up the overall printing process.
