Epson Intros Stylus Photo 960Inkjet offers first 2 picoliter droplet size
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 http://www.epson.com.
