Epson America Inc. on Tuesday introduced its
Epson Stylus CX6600
all in one device, capable of printing, scanning and copying. It can print up to 22 pages per minute, copy up to 16 pages per minute and scans at up to 1200 x 2400 dots per inch at 40-bit color depth. The printer also features memory card slots compatible with CompactFlash I and II, Sony Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro, MemoryStick Duo, Sony MagicGate SD, Smart Media, Secure Digital, MultiMediaCard, IBM Microdrive and xD-Picture Card media — you can use the slots to print out digital camera photos directly, or transfer files to your Mac.
The CX6600 uses Epson’s DURABrite inks — pigment-based color that doesn’t bleed when it gets wet, according to the manufacturer. The all-in-one device sports separate ink cartridges for cyan, magenta, yellow and black. It can hold 100 sheets of plain paper and also prints envelopes and Epson specialty media. The CX6600 is now shipping to retailers. It costs US$199.99 — a $20 mail-in rebate is also available.
