Epson was the proud recipient of the CNET Editor's Choice Award for Epson WorkForce 840 All-in-One Printer during the initial days of the year 2011. But the brand couldn’t rejoice the achievement much. The Epson WorkForce 840 All-in-One Printer wasn’t perfect. The printer failed to prove itself in the photo print speed test. Owing to this drawback, it could not be possibly recommended to photographers.
Hence, the achievement of the CNET Editor's Choice Award could not increase to any hype and popularity of the product. However, this did one favor to Epson. It geared the zeal and desperation of the company to make it big the next time.
Ever since, Epson didn’t lose hope. On the contrary, it became enthusiast toward the manufacture of such a printer that can boast its photo printing speed. Today, the efforts have earned Epson fame by contributing to its cap two new feathers. The company announced the launch of Epson Artisan 837 and the Artisan 730 – two new wireless, touch screen-enabled printers meant to serve the amateur photographers to the best of their photo printing satisfaction.
Features of the Artisan printers:
• Both the printers feature the functions of print, scan, fax, and copy
• Both are color inkjet devices and offer touch panels that are emerald green in color and are easily readable
• They can print, copy, and scan from CDs and DVDs and are capable of producing ultra-HD photo prints
• Adding to the customer’s convenience is the top-loading capacity of both
• The other features include 30-page auto-document feeder for scanning stacks of prints, and hands-free and high-speed faxing capabilities in both black-and-white and color
• USB cable of digital cameras can also be fit into the on-board media card slots that are present in the printers. This enables direct print out of the photos from cameras
• Supported by the on-board Wi-Fi and Ethernet networking, the printers can also connect and print from any room in the house
• The printer also gets you connected through commands from the Epson's mobile print apps for iOS and Blackberry devices
Appearance of the Artisan printers:
The hardware of the Artisan printers is way more appealing compared to that in the previous models owing to the new midnight blue finish on its case. The extended smart touch-panel display with an emerald backlight, in place of a common blue, adds on to the glamor. Both the printers have a 7.8-inch touch panel and the color LCD is of 3.5 inches and 2.5 inches in the 837 and 730 models respectively.
These two new additions in the Artisan printer line will be available from September in retail outlets and online shopping sites. The proposed rates would be $300 for the Epson Artisan 837 model and $200 for the Epson Artisan 730 model.
The company is showcasing both the models as the world’s fastest 4x6-inch photo printers. Epson is keeping high hopes from these two printers to successfully win over the previous model in respect to the photo print speed and other updated features.
So, wait for the release of the two Artisan printers in the retail market from September.
