Epson has announced several new printers, for that is what printer companies are wont to do. Among the new products are two dedicated photo printers and three all-in-one printers.
The Epson R260 and R380 are printers with several high-end features. Both can produce borderless prints at up to letter (8.5x11) size, and both can print directly to CDs and DVDs. The R380 goes even further, with a 3.5-inch LCD screen and a media card reader.
The Epson CX5000, CX6000, and RX580 are Epson's newest multipurpose printers. All three are all-in-one units that can both scan and print photos. The CX5000 includes a built-in card reader for directly printing images. The CX6000 has a card reader and a 2-inch color LCD. The RX580 lacks a card reader but sports a big, 3.5-inch LCD and CD/DVD-printing capabilities.
The Epson CX5000, CX6000, and R260 will be available in September with respective suggested retail prices of $100, $150, and $130. The R380 and RX580 will both ship in October at the suggested price of $200.
