Epson promises better home and mobile printing for everyone
Responding to consumer demand for improved home text and photo prints, Epson has launched its Expression Home range – a series of compact models that deliver both high-quality, glossy photos and crisp, clear text. The Epson Expression Home Small-in-One inkjet printers are Epson’s smallest ever all-in-ones –and the Expression Home XP-30 is Epson’s smallest ever single-function A4 printer. All models use a new Claria Home Ink set, and deliver flexible mobile printing.
The Small-in-One range features the Expression Home XP-400 Series, XP-300 Series XP-205, XP-202 and XP-102, allowing users to print, copy and scan. Each printer offers the opportunity to save space, money and time thanks to their small dimensions, individual inks and a range of user-friendly features, while the Expression Home XP-30 is a single-function printer, suited for home users who need a compact inkjet at an affordable price.
These printers use Epson’s new four-colour Claria Home Ink set, a new entry-level ink formulation that combines the durability of black pigment ink with the glossy colour photo output of dye-based cyan, magenta and yellow inks. This versatile ink set delivers crisp, clear text documents and glossy, lab-quality photos.
Easily recognisable with their distinctive Daisy/Poppy image packaging, users will be able to immediately identify the correct ink cartridges for their printer. All cartridges are available in standard and XL sizes, with page yields displayed clearly on the front of each pack, making it easier for users to decide which cartridge size best suits their printing needs.
The XP-400 Series, XP-300 Series, XP-205 and XP-202 models allow users to print from anywhere around the home. With automatic Wi-Fi set-up these printers automatically find the relevant connection settings and configure themselves. They are also compatible with Epson iPrint, which allows users to print wirelessly from smartphones and tablet PCs.
The XP-400 Series, XP-300 Series and XP-205 also allow users to print from anywhere in the world, by emailing photos and documents directly to the printer’s unique email address. These printers are also Google Cloud Print and Apple AirPrint ready.
Neil Wilson, product manager, Epson UK, says: “Using the new Claria Home ink set, the Expression Home range allows you to benefit from the versatility of glossy, home photo printing and crisp, clear text output. You won’t have to worry whether printing documents or photos is the driving factor in your household, because you can now have both. Whether you’re printing coursework, home documents or family photos, this range ensures that your needs are catered for.”
