Epson Intros Six-Color Inkjet
2,880 DPI printer sells for $99 with rebate
This week Epson released a six-color printer that sells for $99. The Stylus Photo 820, successor to the 780, prints black text at 12 PPM and a full-page photo in about 102 seconds. It also includes PRINT image matching and BorderFree technology.
The Stylus Photo 820 offers 2,880 x 720 DPI resolution, Epson's Advanced Micro Piezo ink jet technology and a six-color photo ink system. The printer uses 4-picoliter droplets, but does not offer variable dot size printing.
PRINT image matching is a technology that works with PRINT-enabled digital cameras to help the final output match results from the digital camera without further image manipulation. It's supported by a number of camera makers, including Olympus, Nikon, Minolta, Sony and others.
The Epson Stylus Photo 820 is available for $149 ($99 after a $50 mail-in rebate). For more information, visit http://www.epson.com.
