Is there a printer that prints on both sides of the sheet simultaneously?

    Well, that would be very difficult as the USB interface is a serial interface. You would have to design a buffer into a printer which would store a whole doc, then design the hardware to print both sides at the same time. It would add too much to the cost of the printer for what you are getting, and it would not print the doc any faster, or if it did, the speed differential would be hardly noticeable.

    Printers are notoriously unreliable. They have minds of their own and if they don't want to do something, they don't. Don't get a printer mad. He will communicate to other electronic gadgets in your home and pretty soon you will be having problems with your laptop, phone, frig, even the light in your oven. Do not get your printer mad !!

    I guess you mean print both sides, yes it is possible. HP LaserJet Pro M426fdw All-in-One with Double-Sided Printing (F6W15A) and HP LaserJet Pro M118dw Wireless Monochrome with Auto Two-Sided Printing (4PA39A) first print one side, then the other side.

    No, but some will do double-sided.

    Not literally simultaneously, but many better printers have a "duplexer" as an option or built in, that allows them to turn the paper over within the printer and print the other side, so no manual intervention is needed.

    With that, you just select single or double sided when you go to print something.

    Inkjets tend to be rather slow doing duplex, as they have to pause for the ink to dry before feeding the paper through again. Laser printers are much faster as the toner is fused in by heat and has no drying time.

    I think you mean that "print both sides" is possible - first one side, then the other, but in one process. Many do. You will have to do sine research according to price and other features.

    No, you have to wait while paper is flipped and run through again.

    Professional offset printers will print on both sides. Their prices start at a half million.
