Epson extends laser reach, jumps into FireWire

Imaging vendor Epson has broadened its range of laser printer offerings for both entry level and workgroup printers, while also announcing a new flatbed scanner it claims is the first in Australia with FireWire connectivity.

Yesterday's announcements, which are the latest in a long line of new products from the printing all-rounder, included upgrades for its Stylus inkjet and photo printers. The 670 Inkjet is said to have found some more speed and better colour, while the 870 and 1270 Photo printers feature improved fade resistance through a combination of new printing technology, media and inks.

The announcement of its foray into the highly contested 20ppm network printer scrum places Epson in a battle for some prime market share real estate. The N2050 laser printer is described as a 20ppm network-ready printer for workgroups that incorporates a 166MHz RISC processor and 10/100BaseTX Ethernet card. It has a range of paper handling options as well as the optional Adobe PostScript 3 software.

The 5700L opens Epson's 8ppm laser offering to the Apple market via the USB interface with the 5800 providing a speed jump (up to 10ppm) and higher resolution.

Epson claims that the Expression 1600 A4 flatbed scanner is the first scanner in Australia to be delivered with IEEE 1394/FireWire connectivity.

The new products will be presented to its customers and channel in its traditional roadshow starting in Sydney next week.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
