Epson changes its mind: separate inks on consumer inkjets

Thanks to the separate ink cartridges it is possible to print even high volumes of the same document with a clear prevalence of one color. The resolution, up to 2880 × 720 dpi, and the EPSON pigment inks, resistant to water and abrasions, ensure that reports and presentations, newsletters and brochures, Internet prints and graphics are characterized by high quality and durability.

The EPSON Stylus C80 manages to print up to 20 ppm in black and white and 10.5 ppm in color, also optimizing the consumption for prints with chromatic prevalence thanks to 4 EPSON Intellidge cartridges equipped with CSIC chips that keep track of the ink levels and communicate them to the user on video through the EPSON Status Monitor 3 software. A partially used cartridge can be replaced with a new one for longer print runs. Once reinstalled, it will remember the exact level of residual ink. The ink retains its properties for a period of approximately 6 months.

It is equipped with an automatic 150-sheet feeder, a manual two-sided printing software and new drivers with EPSON PhotoEnhance 4 and Contour Adjustment functions that automatically optimize the print quality of images imported from the Internet at low resolution and offer the possibility to retouch them and apply special effects and setting options.

The interfaces are the classic parallel and USB with PC and Mac drivers. Finally, the completely renewed aesthetic that detaches this model from the whole Epson range and focuses on curves, modern lines and compactness.
