Epson Lowers Price on 6-Color Printer

Stylus Photo 780 drops to $99 By Dave Nagel
Epson announced today that it has reduced the price of the Epson Stylus Photo 780 ink jet printer. The new estimated street price will be $99, making it the lowest-priced six-color inkjet. The printer originally sold for $149.

The system includes Epson's BorderFree and Print Image Matching (PIM) technologies. BorderFree is supposed to allow users to print edge to edge in various photographic sizes. PIM is designed to optimize output from digital cameras that are also equipped with PIM. Manufacturers that support PIM currently include Casio, Epson, Konica, Kyocera, Minolta, Nikon, Olympus, Pentax, Ricoh, Sanyo, Sony and Toshiba. According to Epson, many of these manufacturers are currently introducing cameras that support the technology. Epson Stylus Photo 780 customers will be able to obtain updated software that supports Print Image Matching directly from Epson's technical support line later this month.

The Stylus Photo 780 features up to 2,880 x 720 DPI and Epson's Advanced Micro Piezo inkjet technology. The printer also offers 4 picoliter droplets, delivering the best in virtually continuous tone quality for prints that are indistinguishable from traditional photos.

The Epson Stylus Photo 780 includes several bonus software programs, including ArcSoft PhotoImpression 3.0, Epson Software Film Factory, and QBeo PhotoGenetics TE. For more information, visit
