Epson Printers Are Efficient

Epson printers are very efficient especially those designed for photo printing. Epson printers have found a good market in Africa especially here in Kenya. There are some reasons why they have been liked here in Kenya:-

Some Features of Epson Printers

  • High quality pictures – with the right photo paper, you are guaranteed to get a nice, high quality pictures from any type of Epson printer you might use.

  • Speed – most of the Epson printers are capable of printing photos pretty fast.

  • Cost – their cost is almost average with that of their competitors thus they are affordable.

  • Ink cartridges – this is one of the main reason people tend to love Epson printers. With the introduction of the Continuous Ink Supply System (CISS), you can refill the cartridges and you do not have to keep on buying cartridges.

Continuous Ink Supply System (CISS)

Continuous Ink Supply System CISS Ink system consists of three parts: cartridges which are the same as original ones, ink tanks (4 or 6 depending on the printer type) and tubes. The ink from ink tanks is fed into the cartridges through the tubes. In this way, you eliminate the need to buy original cartridges very often thus you end up saving your money and time.

Marketers claim that you can save up to 95% (20-30 times less) of printing costs using CISS, compared to the usage of original cartridges, which you have to keep on buying once the ran out of ink. For CISS, you just refill the tanks as you wish.

Features of Epson Printers

  • Multiple-uses – most of the Epson printers are capable of performing a number of tasks ranging from the normal printing, scanning and photocopying to advanced tasks like printing Cds and DVDs and also the printing of plastic cards.

  • Computer support – this is one of the most important features of some of the Epson printers. You can print photos directly from the printer either through the use of memory card or flash disk without the need of a computer.

    This has led to the emergence of paparazzi in public functions like weddings and funerals. I also see them in other public places like church gates, amusement parks and beaches where they look for potential customers. It is also now possible to get instant passports within a period of less than three minutes. This actually a 'hot' business in Nairobi.

  • Availability – these printers are readily available in most shops.

  • Easy to use – these printers being digital, are easy to use and operate. Any errors that occur during operation are displayed on the printer screen or on the computer screen.

In Conclusion

In my workplace, I have been using an older model Epson Stylus Photo TX650. The printer has served me well for the time I have been using it. Most of these old models are out of market though I have seen many people looking for them. They claim that they are better than the latest models. There is a booming business as people trade off their old models to those who desperately want them.
