Epson Expanding Premium Photo Range
Epson Australia has expanded its premium photo range launching the XP-6000, XP-8500 and the XP-15000, all able to print, scan and copy in one unit with mobile printing options.
Epson says the XP-6000 offers a new compact design, faster speeds of 15.8 ppm (black) and 11.3 ppm (colour), CD/DVD printing, auto 2-sided printing, wireless Wi-Fi Direct, AirPrint, Google Cloud Print, a 2.4” LCD screen, a 100-sheet input first tray and 20 sheet input second tray and a 50-sheet output capacity.
The XP-8500 offers all that the XP-6000 does with a 2.7” LCD screen and critically now also offers a 6-colour printing solution – a major bonus for home premium photo printing. With speeds of 9.5 ppm (black) and 9 ppm (colour) and a yield of 500 (black) and 830 (colour) with XL sizes the XP-8500 is a serious player in this market.
Epson explains the XP-6000’s five inks and XP-8500’s 6 inks can be individually replaced as and when a particular colour runs out, making it economical. They’re also designed to handle printing documents expertly too, providing the complete package.
