True two-sided printing requires a more expensive printer because the

desktop printers print one-sided.

Many people do not have a printer capable of true two-sided printing
because most home and office printers are designed for one-sided
printing. They print one sheet straight through and can not reverse feed
to print automatically on the reverse side. The paper feed is much
simpler, hence less expensive and should be more reliable.

Being an "ex-Printer man" for one of the large Printer Manufactures I have to point out the following, (which over the years I have found very few users know about).

You do _NOT_ need a more expensive Duplex Printer to produce Double-sided printouts!! Almost all print routines have the option to control what prints out in any print job. So ......

First set-up your print job to print 'Odd pages only';
Take these pages, turn them over and put them back into the paper tray;
Now set-up the print job to print 'Even pages only'.

And there you have it - A Double-sided printout from a single page printer!! Easy.
