Epson Introduces New Cost-Effective Color Inkjet Printers

Epson L800

MANILA, PHILIPPINES - Epson has recently launched the world’s 1st genuine ink tank printers that are designed to provide the Philippine market with the lowest cost per page (CPP) in the industry using Epson’s proprietary and durable Micro Piezo technology that assures high quality prints.

“These amazing innovations presented today to Filipino customers are the results of thorough studies made on end-user preference and demands in the whole region, said Epson South and Southeast Asia Managing Director Eiji Ide. “These market studies show that small and medium businesses look for high print quality, yet exert effort to bring down costs. “

The Epson L-series are expected to create a unique category in the Philippine printing industry by combining low cost ink tank printing with Epson quality and a warranty for genuine parts and labor. The Epson L-series printers are capable of providing super high productivity and minimal ink change.

The Epson L100 and L200 are four-ink color printers while the L800 is a specialized photo printer with six inks that produce a wider color range. These new printers feature Epson Ink Tanks that help users increase productivity and save on printing costs like no other printer before.

The L100 and L200 printers come with a starting set of one black 70ml ink bottle that can print 4000 black pages and three 70ml color ink cartridges that can print 6500 color pages. With each set of one black and three color inks, the printers offer an extremely low cost per page of only PhP 0.06 per black page and only PhP 0.12 per color page. In addition, each new unit comes with two additional black ink bottles to provide customers even greater value.

The Epson L800 photo printer comes with an initial bundle of six ink bottles (70ml each) that can print up to 1,800 4R photos. With each full set of inks (Cyan, Light Cyan, Magenta, Light Magenta, Yellow, Black), the printer offers an extremely low running cost of only PhP 1.67 per 4R-size photo print (media price not included).

The Epson Micro Piezo print head found in the Epson L series printers achieves a maximum print resolution of 5760 x 1440 dpi and its variable size droplet technology (VSDT) allows the print head to eject ink droplets in three sizes. These capabilities ensure the greatest detail and extremely smooth gradations in photographs.

The Epson L-series printers feature Epson’s FIT (Fast Ink Top-up) technology that is made up of three specially designed components: 1) the Epson Ink Tanks, 2) special ink tubes and 3) a choke valve, all of which allow for easy ink refilling as well as convenient transportation of the printers.
