Epson's Spurts Out Three High-Definition Photo Printers

Epson’s rolled out the Epson Stylus Photo R260, R380 and RX580, all “Ultra Hi-Definition” and all using Epson’s MicroPiezo print head to pump out great photos.

The R260, which doesn’t need a PC to operate, costs $129 and has a 3.5-inch display to preview photos, memory card slots, and can print 4×6, 5×7, 8×10 and 8.5×11 prints. It can produce a 4×6 “lab quality” photo in 13 seconds.

The R380 also has the 3.5-inch LCD display, can also print the 4×6 photo in 13 seconds, and outputs black or color text at 30 pages per minute. This model has the added bonus of saving your images from the memory card to a CDR, ZIP drive or a USB thumb stick, directly from the printer. The R380 will be $199.

Finally, the RX580 can do everything the two lesser models can, like printing the 4×6 in 13 seconds, but has a 2.5-inch instead of 3.5-inch LCD, and has a 1200x2400dpi scanner. The RX580 will be $199 as well.
