UPDATED-STATEMENT: 20180920@140918 Post created UPDATED-STATEMENT: 20180920@150253 It's proposed that no database has challenged this idea of verifying branded results over personal testing

I'm planning on getting a printer over $1000 and I need to know the specifications for scanner speeds for each DPI settings. I know the brand, model, price, and features that the Xerox AltaLink C8055 has to offer already. Problem is that the important thing that's missing is the speed for how fast it's able to scan whether it's scanning from ADF or Glass as per DPI setting from low-fast to high-slow. It's documentation or manual specifies print speed and includes that it's a colored printer, but lacks information regarding scanning speeds for each dpi.

If there is no way of knowing that scanning speeds for the Xerox AltaLink C8055, then i'm wondering if there's a database that sorts this information? Also what is Scanning-specification otherwise known as?

If we're talking about alternative spec sheet from another branded source then CNET definately provided more insight (see Document & Media Handling -> Speed details).

Xerox AltaLink C8055

  • Feature1: Prints Color
  • Feature2: Capacity of paper
    • Max of 5,140 sheets of paper
  • Feature3: Speed Printing
    • Speeds up to 55ppm
  • Feature4: Speed Scanning (what about as per DPI?)
    • bw&color - 80ppm
    • duplex bw&color - 139ipm


Notice in Feature4: Scan Speeds it lists difference between regular and duplex scanning speeds. Problem is that it still doesn't show those scan speeds as per DPI.

  • No such database doesn't exist. For this value of printer it's absolutely fair to contact seller/ manufacturer and ask for further details (or even try it yourself) – Máté Juhász Sep 20 '18 at 5:00
