Stylus 900 Specifications.
The Stylus 900 is capable of 1400x720dpi, which produces some very sharp images and text. Along with its high dpi, the Stylus is also a speed demon. It boasts 12 ppm in black and 10 ppm in color. A fair bit better than my old HP680C, which was 5 ppm in black and 3 ppm in color. The Stylus 900 is also fully networkable.
