duty cycle:
 It is the number of pages printed per month that the printer is designed to handle. Printing more than the rating accelerates the breakdown of the printer

A printer's rated duty cycle can range from a few hundred pages a month to a few hundred thousand, with the higher volumes associated with faster printing speeds and more capable paper-handling features. By roughly matching the duty cycle to the volume of pages you expect to print, you can ensure that you'll neither burn out the printer prematurely nor buy much more printer than you actually need.
