Standard Output Delivery Rear exit stacker (capacity of up to 20 D-size prints) Top Receiving Tray with air separation system (capacity of up to 50 E-size prints) Oce Plotwave 300 neatly stacks prints on top of the printer. With Oce air separation, mixed sizes will not get hung up.
Color Scan to File standard standard No difference.
Operational Footprint 47" x 25" (9 square feet)* 67" x 58" (27 square feet)

According to the specs, the LP205 has a smaller footprint, but this does not account for space needed to open the rolls drawers. So, it is not a TRUE operational foot print.
