Each type of media will display the same high quality of printing. The machine features a fifty page document feed (automatic), an input paper tray that is capable of holding 250 pages, and an output tray that will hold 150 pages to make this the printer that can handle every printing job you have. The standard input paper tray capacity is able to be increased to accommodate 500 sheets by adding an optional second paper tray.

The DCP 8045D features a laser printer which produces high quality printing and copying at the rate of 21 pages per minute and a resolution of 2400 x 600 dpi or HQ1200.
