Epson Intros Stylus Photo 960

Inkjet offers first 2 picoliter droplet size By Dave Nagel
Epson has announced its forthcoming Stylus Photo 960, the successor to the Stylus Photo 890. The new model offers several improvements over the previous version, including the first 2 picoliter droplet size. It will be available in September.

The new 960 includes a six-color ink system (which also includes a seventh, redundant black cartridge for faster printing) and a 2,880 x 1,440 DPI resolution. The new model is also twice the speed of the 890, printing a color 8" x 10" image at 720 DPI in less than two minutes (glossy and matte) and outputting black text at 6 PPM.

The printer also supports now-standard Epson technologies, such as "BorderFree" printing and Print Image Matching (PIM). The printer also uses a separate roll paper path to support borderless printing on 4-inch and 8.3-inch roll media. It also offers a straight-through path for media up to 1.3 mm thick.

The Stylus Photo 960 will be available in September for $349 and will include Epson's standard software suite and a $100 discount coupon for MonacoEZcolor. It supports Mac and Windows through USB 1.1 and parallel connectors. For more information, visit
