Epson continues to enhance all-in-one printing for the home
Producing high-quality photos and documents is easy with the versatile new Expression range
Epson unveils its latest Expression range of all-in-one printers with a number of enhancements. Building on the huge success of the existing models, these all-in-one printers, scanners and copiers harness Epson’s world-renowned print technology to create superior-quality results. With a range of advanced connectivity features, the whole family can create fantastic-looking photos and documents at home or from almost anywhere around the world1.
Expression Home and Premium models utilise a new Claria ink-set with individual inks, meaning users can produce superb-quality photos and documents, while keeping their costs down. Photography enthusiasts will love the new Expression Photo, which is now even easier to use. They can get started straight away with the addition of an auto power-on function, while both the paper tray and control panel now feature an auto open and close mechanism for easy and effortless printing.
With more flexibility than ever before, the whole range comes with a multitude of advanced connectivity features. As part of an integrated and speedy installation, all models feature automatic Wi-Fi set-up2 to allow users to start printing in no time.
When it comes to mobile printing, it’s all about choice, and Epson Connect offers users a whole suite of printing options. Whether using a smartphone or tablet, the iPrint app3 can be downloaded to a range of devices for truly wireless printing. The possibilities don’t end there, with Epson Email Print, users can also print from anywhere in the world1 by simply emailing their documents and photos directly to their printer. For creative-minded users, the Creative Print3 app can access Facebook photos, create custom greeting cards and stationery, and even turn photos into colouring book templates.
Simon Hanly, product manager, Epson UK, says: “We set about refining our whole Expression range to ensure they continue to set the standard in flexible and versatile home all-in-ones. Our customers will be glad to see that they have a choice of models that include all the superior connectivity features, mobile printing and high-quality individual inks that have made the Expression range such a success.”
Designed for cost-conscious households, the Expression Home range (XP-435, XP-432, XP-335, XP-332, XP-235) is an affordable option for users wanting to produce great results. Utilising a new Claria Home ink-set with individual inks, it can help keep costs low as users only ever need to replace the colour used, rather than having to buy a whole new ink-set every time. We understand that usability is key and the range’s LCD screen helps make navigation clear, while its compact and light design means, the models don’t take up much valuable desk or counter space.
For those wanting the best of both worlds, the Expression Premium range (XP-830, XP-635, XP-630, XP-530) creates outstanding glossy photos and crisp, clear text documents. The new four-colour dye and pigment ink-set helps users create crystal clear photos with vibrant colours, while blacks will be deep and rich thanks to the addition of a Photo Black ink cartridge. Simple text documents will look highly professional with crisp black text, which is also is water and smudge resistant, even on plain paper.
For added versatility and ease of use, the whole Expression Premium range comes with a double-sided Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) and two paper trays, as well as a motorised control panel and output tray for quick and easy operation. To help users print on a range of different media, there is a speciality paper path for thicker media, as well as CD and DVD printing capabilities.
Expression Photo (XP-960)
The Expression Photo is ideal for photography enthusiasts as a perfect partner for their DSLR or compact camera. By utilising Epson’s individual 6-colour Claria Photo HD inks, users can print photos in sizes up to A3 with stunning detail and more natural colours thanks to smooth tonal gradations and deep, rich blacks. Users can also be sure that their exceptional glossy photos can be enjoyed for generations as prints can last up to 300 years4 in a photo album. As well as being very compact, it’s versatile too, and with the speciality media feed and dual paper trays, printing on different media is quick and easy.
The Expression Home (XP-435, XP-432, XP-335, XP-332, XP-235), Expression Premium (XP-830, XP-635, XP-630, XP-530) and Expression Photo (XP-960) models are available from 1st September 2015.
