Epson Ships New Printers

5,760 DPI models available for less than $150 By Dave Nagel
Epson has started shipping two new models in its C-series of inkjet printers. The new models--the C62 and C82--offer resolutions of 5,760 x 720 DPI and are both available for less than $150.

The Stylus C82 replaces the C80 in Epson's lineup. It offers four-color printing at 5,760 x 720 DPI using the company's Resolution Performance Management technology, which places up to six different droplet sizes as small at 3 picoliters. According to Epson, it can produce black text at 22 PPM and color text on plain paper at 11 PPM. It also uses Epson DuraBrite inks, which are designed to have a lightfastness of 70 to 80 years under glass, depending on the paper. It sells for $139.


Two alternate versions of the printer are also available--a wired network version and a wireless network version. They sell for $349 and $379, respectively. A Bluetooth wireless adapter is also available for the printer for $129.

The other new printer, the C62, is a lower-end model, offering the same resolution but slightly larger variable droplet sizes (as small as 4 picoliters). It does not use DuraBrite inks, and its output is 14 PPM for black text and 10 PPM for color text using plain paper. It sells for $79 with a $20 mail-in rebate, $99 without.
