The 100-sheet multipurpose document tray is ideal for handling envelopes, cards and custom sized media. The fax modem operates at 33.6 kbps and includes all the standard useful features. The X740 series consists of the X746de, X748de and X748dte models that are distinguishable from each other on the basis of paper and toner capacity and Hard Disk option.
