Epson America Inc.
on Monday introduced six new inkjet printers, including several new all-in-one models. They all use Epson’s vaunted DuraBrite Ultra pigment ink. Epson claims the new printers produce output that’s fade, water and smudge-resistant. They can all also produce borderless prints and feature USB 2.0 connectivity to Macs and PCs.
The Epson Stylus C88 produces up to 22 pages per minute in black and 12 pages per minute in color, featuring USB 2.0 support. It’s available now for US$79.
The Stylus CX7800 is a new all in one system that can scan 48-bit, 2400 x 2400 dot per inch slides and negatives, or 1200 x 2400 DPI photos and documents. It can operate without a computer to make copies of documents, photos and film, can print directly from a memory card or PictBridge-enabled camera, and shows images on a 1.5-inch color LCD panel. It will debut in September for US$179.
The new Stylus CX5800F also features scanning, computer-free copying and printing, along with high-speed color and black and white faxing. It can scan documents at 1200 x 2400 DPI in 48-bit mode, outputting up to 20 pages per minute in black and 19 in color. It’ll be coming later this fall for $179, $149 after a $30 mail-in rebate.
The Stylus CX4800 touts memory card and PictBridge support, and can print out a “photo proof sheet” so you can pick and choose which digital photos to print without having to use a computer. It can produces 48-bit scans at 1200 x 2400 DPI, and is currently available for $129. The Stylus CX4200 lacks memory card features but otherwise features the same capabilities available in September for $99.
The CX3810 is entry-level all-in-one model; it features a 600 x 1200 DPI scanner and costs $89; a $20 mail-in rebate lowers that price to $69.
