Say goodbye to cartridges
Epson’s latest ink tank system printers cover a wide range of home and business requirements without the need for ink cartridges
Epson has extended its range of Ink Tank System (ITS) printers with five new models that deliver ultra-low-cost printing without the need for ink cartridges.
Including models that come with enough ink to print up to 12,000 pages in black and 6,500 pages in colour, Epson is offering a new way of printing that delivers hassle-free results for home and office users. The range includes models with 1200dpi scanning functionality (L365), copying, faxing and Wi-Fi capabilities, a large LCD screen and SD card slot for easy PC-free printing (L455).
Epson’s new printers for the home come with two years’ worth of ink included. The L130 and L220 can print an incredible 6,500 pages in colour and 4,000 pages in black using only the ink included in the box. Also for the home, the L310, L365 and L455 include two extra black ink bottles increasing their combined black print output to 12,000 pages.
The L365 features both copying and 1200dpi scanning functionality, Wi-Fi connectivity for wireless printing, and the L310, offers print speeds of up to 9.2ppm. For the home, the L130 and L220 deliver the same ultra-low-cost printing with print speeds of up to 7ppm1. For additional peace of mind, all models benefit from a one-year warrantee (30,000 pages for the L455, L365 and L310 and 15,000 pages for the L130 and L220).
The L455 meets the needs of homes for a fast solution for printing, scanning and copying – and occasional photo printing – without requiring a PC. Its large LCD screen and SD card slot makes it even easier print out a range of A4 colour office documents, including graphics, advertising materials and presentations.
All new models with Wi-Fi allow users to utilise Epson Connect, which allows printing from anywhere in the world just by emailing photos and documents to the printer, or via a remote print driver. Epson Connect also includes the Epson iPrint app for easy printing over Wi-Fi from smartphones and tablets. Documents and photos can also be printed with L455 and L565 direct from mobile devices thanks to compatibility with Apple AirPrint and Google Cloud Print. Easy Wi-Fi set-up helps to connect these printers to a wireless network.
Kelvin Reynolds, general manager, Epson South Africa, says: “Complimenting our line-up of existing products, these models feature Epson’s Micro Piezo technology and offer unrivalled durability, quality and reliability. Over 10 million end users worldwide made their choice in favour of Epson Ink Tank System printers in less than four years. They are ideal for home and small office users who want to print high volumes of everyday documents and for whom price and convenience are key factors.”
