High-definition Ink for New Epson Photo Printer Release
High-definition ink is a key function of one of Epson's new printers. The firm has launched its all-in-one Epson Stylus Photo PX660 device, designed for photographers.
It will deliver glossy, quality photo prints that even beat lab quality, the company said. With an LCD screen and a touch-panel for navigation, the PX660 is both functional and accessible.
Claira Ink, Epson's sophisticated high-definition, dye-based ink, is the key component of the printer, enabling users to print photos that, Epson said, can last in a photo frame for up to 98 years, or more than 200 years if in an album.
Additionally, the PX660 has an ink-saving capability. Because only the colour needs to be replaced, users can save money on individual ink cartridges. The printer uses either Hummingbird or Owl ink cartridges.
"Photo enthusiasts can really take pride in their prints with the Epson PX660. It delivers photos with a vivid, glossy finish - perfect for shots taken in high resolution - while the scan and copy functions make it a versatile addition to the home," Simon Hanly, product manager at Epson UK, said.
This month the company's B–510DN colour inkjet won the Outstanding Achievement Award from the Buyers Laboratory Inc (BLI).
