Epson introduce Stylus CX6600 All-in-One - Designed to improve the quality and cost efficiency of home and small office printing.
Demand continues to grow for these devices as IDC analysts predict that the market will reach around 12 million units by 2007. This is because individuals, whether they are in the home or the office, are demanding high-speed printing, high resolution scanning at cost-effective prices. The new Epson Stylus CX6600 is aimed at the user who wants the cost effectiveness of individual ink cartridges together with the ability to print and scan general-purpose documents with the convenience of memory card storage and occasional photo printing. These functions together with the advanced photocopying features ensure that this product is especially attractive to business users as well as for home use.
Richard Baylis, Sales and Marketing Manager, Consumer Products says, This new stand alone solution is aimed at the home/small office user who wishes to have advanced functionality and performance in an attractive All-in-One device. The product makes it easy to scan, copy and print a wide variety of documents from everyday correspondence to photographs. We believe the market now demands sophisticated All-in-One devices that deliver both cost and space saving benefits without compromising functionality, and this product is ideally placed to meet these needs.
The Epson Stylus CX6600 offers outstanding print performance at speeds of up to 22 pages per minute and resolutions of up to 5760 optimised DPI. The printing function utilises a four ink system based upon Epsons Micro Piezo print and Epson DURABrite Ink. The popular DURABrite Inks gives outstanding plain paper results as well as bright, long-lasting photographs. It also ensures smudge resistance and water fastness, the inks will not run when wet, even if water is spilt on the paper directly after printing. The DURABrite Inks are supplied in separate ink cartridges, which gives the cost benefits the consumer desires.
The Epson Stylus CX6600 includes a high-quality 1200 x 2400 dpi scanner, which caters for all types of scanning from simple scanned documents up to high-resolution photographs producing very sharp results. When used in conjunction with Epson Smart Panel, the user can send the result via email, save to file or perform a number of other functions. The New Epson Scan software also allows the user to perform colour restoration on old and faded photographs.
The Epson Stylus CX6600 will perform full colour or black and white photocopying from a simple, single button push on the front control panel. The user can also specify the type and size of media used and the quality of output desired from draft, text, image and best. In addition the device offers direct support for 9 different types of memory card. Images can be printed directly from the memory card, and scanned documents can be stored on the memory card without the need to use a computer.
