Epson introduces Artisan series of all-in-one printers
Epson America Inc. has recently made available two new all-in-one printers that look set to cause more than a stir in the printer market with the Artisan 800 and Artisan 700. Both models look set to blaze the industry thanks to their superb performance, highly desirable features and stylish piano black finish that always seem to guarantee attracting the fingerprints of whoever lay their eyes on it. The Artisan series will look great be it at home or at the office, so head on after the jump to read more about the specifications before you decide on whether to purchase one for yourself or not.
The Artisan 800 is the higher end version of the two, and will boast Wi-Fi connectivity that makes it a whole lot easier to share with other people in the network, not to mention doing away with yet another wired connection that could potentially trip some careless soul. In addition, the Artisan 800 will come with fax capability, an Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) and the ability to churn out Ultra Hi-Definition photos. Thanks to the 7.8″ smart touch panel and 3.5″ LCD display, you will have full control of the entire printer at your fingertips that makes it a snap when it comes to selecting, copying, enlarging, rotating, cropping, and printing photos sans a computer.
Shared features of the Artisan 800 and 700 include hald a dozen Ultra Hi-Definition Claria ink that result in vivid, true-to-life photos with smudge, scratch and water resistance. As if that isn’t impressive enough, Epson touts that these prints will also feature fade resistance up to four times longer than photo lab prints. When used with Claria ink, the “smart nozzles” in Epson’s exclusive MicroPiezo print head with DX5 technology is touted to deliver up to five ink droplet sizes, as small as 1.5 picoliters for smooth gradations, accurate skin tones and sharp, grain-free prints.
The Epson Artisan 800 and 700 will retail for $299.99 and $199.99, respectively. Each purchase comes with a 2-year warranty.
