5th Feb 2008 - Epson America Inc. has announced a new model in their all-in-one scanning, printing faxing range: the Epson Stylus CX9475Fax. It currently retails for $179.99. The highlights of this new model include support for wired or wireless networks, support for Epson’s new DuraBrite inks and a 30-sheet capacity auto sheet feeder.
The CX9475Fax uses Epson’s new InstaNet technology, which they claim makes network connectivity and installation effortless because it combines the printer and print server installation applications into one. However, one of the drawbacks of this new software is that the wireless feature is only applicable to Windows users. Macintosh users will not be able to connect wirelessly.
The CX9475Fax carries on the trademarked features of its predecessor, the Epson Stylus CX9400Fax, such as Advanced DX3 MicroPiezo print head technology (which Epson calls smart nozzles) that produce and place three specific sizes of ink droplets, limiting the number of nozzles needed to print. Also carried over is DuraBriteUltra ink, which is a quick-drying, smudge, highlighter and water-resistant ink that Epson claims to be laser quality and suitable for documents and photographs.
The CX9475Fax claims to be faster, with speeds up to 32 ppm for both color and black text document printing and up to 30 ppm for copies.
That’s a 2 ppm increase in printing from the CX9400Fax. Although fast, wireless printing greatly depends on the speed of the network.
The CX9475Fax is available now and costs $179.99
