Epson introduces the Stylus C110, a high-speed, high-quality printer for the home and the office. As well as printing laser-like text, vibrant, colour-graphics and photos, this four colour printer is the fastest in its class.
With speeds up to 37ppm in black and white and 20ppm in colour it is an ideal printer for the home office or small office.
It uses Epson’s individual ink cartridge system, only the colour that is used needs to be replaced. Certified by the Energy Star international standard, the Stylus C110’s low power printing technology saves energy especially compared to laser printers, further helping to keep costs down.
Epson has integrated an innovative Dual Black Ink System into the Stylus C110 which increases print speeds and page yields. As a result small businesses that need a productive and cost-effective printer will find the Stylus C110 a suitable low cost alternative to a laser printer.
In addition the printer supports high-capacity black ink cartridges, allowing for even higher print yields and larger volumes of text-based documents. And unlike similar priced laser printers, it provides the flexibility to print high-quality documents and photos in colour.
The fast printing speeds are achieved as a result of the new Epson Micro Piezo print head mechanism. The print head has hundreds of tiny nozzles for ejecting ink droplets with the very highest levels of accuracy. The number of nozzles dedicated to black ink has been doubled and when combined with an increase in the speed of ink ejection, the print speed for black text is maximised.
The Stylus C110 is versatile and is also suitable for photos, a 10x15cm photo can be printed in just 49 seconds. With the latest generation of DURABrite Ultra, a new formulated resin coating means photos are now glossier when used with Epson Premium Glossy Photo paper. The Stylus C110 also includes Epson’s PhotoEnhance for improving photos at the touch of a button. It recognises images featuring skin tones, landscapes and skylines and reproduces enhanced colour settings.
Hans Dummer, regional manager of Epson Southern Africa, says: “Many small businesses are using inkjet printers for private offices or for the home office. Epson has designed the Stylus C110, specifically with these customers in mind. In addition to the fast print speeds, the Dual Black Ink System offers extra convenience for professional customers with large volumes of black text printing. The printer is also compact, energy-efficient and with DURABrite Ultra Ink it offers a range of printing options, from text and email printing to graphics and photos.”
