Be interesting to compare it to the Genicom ACE Laser Printer. They do
400x400 resolution (which looks great for fax) and are putting support in for 
printing G3 data directly.

We are also some using RLL encoding with postscript printers. Seems to 
work fairly well.

I was told the IIP was a fairly slow printer - 4 pages per minute engine? 

What kind of throughput do you actually get?
