Despite regular updates, the technology behind printers hasn't fundamentally changed for decades; lasers, inkjets and even dye-sublimation photo printers all work essentially as they always did, which is why it's exciting to review the Lomond EvoJet Office. Based on technology developed in Australia, the EvoJet's makers claim that it will print a page a second. It's an inkjet, but not as we know it.

Lomond EvoJet Office
About the same size as a laser, but lighter and much less power-hungry

The dramatic step up in speed is made possible by the EvoJet's print head which, rather than moving back and forth across the page, is fixed in place and spans the full width of the paper path. Pages cascade through the printer at a constant speed as the huge head lays down a so-called 'waterfall' of ink. Unlike a laser, there's no lag while the page image is created on a photosensitive drum.

Physically, the EvoJet Office looks much like a workgroup colour laser printer. There's a 250-sheet paper input tray in the base, a single-sheet multipurpose feed at the back, and a 125-sheet output tray at the front. That's where the similarity ends, however. With less complicated working parts it's a fair bit lighter than a laser, and with no fuser to heat it runs far cooler and uses much less electricity – we measured peak power consumption of just 34 watts. In use it's much quieter than most other inkjets, helped by the absence of frenetic print head movements. The only significant omission is the lack of an automatic duplexer.
