Epson all-in-one matches style with substance


Epson has launched its new Stylus TX200 and TX400 Series – all-in-one printers that look as good as they print.

Packaged within a stylish and contemporary black design that characterise the Epson Stylus range, Epson’s technology ensures the Stylus TX200 and TX400 Series deliver exceptional quality, speed and versatility to meet the demands of the modern home.
The new range of all-in-one printer, scanner and copier units has a small footprint to optimise space-efficiency and use individual ink cartridges. This supports cost-efficient printing as consumers only need to replace the colour they use, minimising ink wastage.
The Epson Stylus TX200 and TX400 Series use Epson DURABrite Ultra Ink which is an advanced pigment-based technology that encapsulates the ink particles in a protective resin coating.  This makes the ink resistant to water, smudging and fading and provides superb text and lab-quality photos, which can last up to 200 years when stored in a photo album.
Both the TX200 and TX400 Series cater for the increasing popularity of digital photography by offering PC-free printing capabilities via index sheet, the built-in memory card slots or PictBridge.
To further enhance photo-functionality, the TX400 Series includes a 6.3cm crystal-clear LCD viewer to simplify navigation of print options and to view and print photos without the need to start a PC.
Time efficiency has also been considered by Epson and the Stylus TX200 and TX400 Series are able to print black and white and colour documents at up to 34 pages per minute.
Both models feature Epson PhotoEnhance technology, enabling users to get the best out of their photos. Images featuring skin tones, landscapes and skylines are detected automatically and reproduced with enhanced colour settings to improve the overall tones and contrasts. Also included is Epson Easy Photo Print, which makes it easy to remove red-eye.  
The Stylus TX200 and TX400 Series’ in-built 1200dpi scanner delivers fast, high-quality scanning of both images and text documents. It is easy to make stand-alone copies or scan via the PC, and with Epson Easy Photo Fix you can restore colour, remove dust and correct backlight on faded or old scanned photos. Also included is ABBYY FineReader optical character recognition (OCR) software, which makes it easy to scan and edit text.
Hans Dummer, regional manager of Epson SA, says: “Epson has been at the forefront of product development in home printing and with the new Stylus TX200 and TX400 Series we have created a printer range that looks and performs better than its predecessors. They are both versatile, efficient and offer high-quality output to meet all the printing, scanning and copying needs of our consumers.”
The Epson Stylus TX200 and TX400 Series are Energy Star qualified printers, reflecting Epson’s ongoing focus to reduce the carbon emissions attributed to the use of its products. Recent energy-saving innovations include an automatic standby function which reduces electricity consumption and improves cost efficiency.
