Epson on Tuesday revealed their expanded line of new all-in-one printers with the NX100, NX200 and NX300. The three new models join the already-introduced NX400 and will be available at prices ranging from $69.99 to $89.99. The NX300 is available now, with the NX100 and NX200 to follow in October.
The Stylus NX series all-in-one devices are aimed at entry-level users at home who need to print, scan, copy and fax but dont want to lay out a lot of money, according to Epson.
The NX300 features fax capabilities and a 30-page Auto Document Feeder (ADF). It includes ABBYY FineReader Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software and can remember 100 pages of faxes.
The NX100 prints black at 26 pages per minute (PPM) and the NX200 prints black or color documents at up to 32 PPM. The NX200 also has a PictBridge interface to connect directly to compatible digital cameeras through USB, rather than requiring a card slot or Mac interface first.
All the new NX models use Epson Durabrite Ultra inks, which are smudge and water resistant. They use four individual ink tanks, and Epson is offering the ink cardigets in “moderate,” “standard” and “high capacity” versions, depending on how much printing you plan to do.
The printers also support borderless printing, and can support two-sided printing. Other features include built-in red eye reduction for photos, photo restoration capabilities and Energy Star compliance.
System requirements call for Mac OS X 10.3.9, 10.4 or 10.5.
