    The latest printers from Oki, Epson, Canon, and Lexmark
    Oki’s C3600 colour printer
    new C3600 colour printer uses LED printing technology to produce colour
    and offers mono printing that is comparable in quality to a laser
    printer. The C3600 measures just 29cm high, 37cm wide, and 48cm deep,
    but its paper tray can handle 250 sheets of A4. It can print on a
    variety of paper sizes and labels, including banner prints that are up
    to 1.2m long, making it a good choice for small businesses that need to
    produce posters or other eye-catching marketing materials. It costs

    Epson’s Stylus SX200, SX400, R2880 and S20, Stylus Pro GS6000, Business Inkjet B-500DN and the AcuLaser M4000 laser printer
    Stylus SX200 and SX400 are multifunction devices designed for the home
    office, which combine a colour inkjet printer, scanner and copier in a
    single unit. Both models include a variety of memory card slots so that
    you can print photos straight from a digital camera without having to
    transfer them to your Mac first. On the scanning side, they also
    include Epson’s Easy Fix software for removing dust and other flaws
    from scanned photos, and OCR software for scanning text documents. The
    SX200 costs £79.99, while the SX400 adds a 6.3cm LCD display for
    previewing photos for £119.99.For professional users there’s the Stylus
    R2880, an A3 printer priced at £569.99. The R2880 can print on a wide
    range of media, including CD and DVD disks, fine art paper and even
    certain types of cardboard. Epson has also developed a new
    ‘multi-image’ Photoshop plug-in for the R2880 and other large-format
    printers that enables you to quickly combine multiple images on a
    single page. The plug- in is available as a free download from’s not just cameras and camcorders that can do
    the face-detection trick. Epson’s S20 Stylus printer has the ability to
    detect skin tones within a photo and automatically adjust the colour
    settings to produce the best results. It can also detect other types of
    shots, such as a landscapes and skylines, and adjust the colour
    settings for these too. The S20 costs just £39.99, and uses individual
    cartridges for the various coloured inks – priced at £5.99 each – so
    that you only need to replace the inks that actually get used up.Epson
    is also planning to release the Stylus Pro GS6000 a large format
    8-colour printer designed for producing posters and signs up on a
    variety of materials, and up to 64in in size. The UK price has not been
    announced yet.Most inkjet printers are low-cost models aimed at home
    users and small businesses that need a cheap colour printer. However,
    Epson’s new Business Inkjet B-500DN is a more powerful model aimed at
    business users who need high-speed colour printing.Epson claims print
    speeds of up to 33 pages per minute for the B-500DN, rivalling the
    speed of more expensive laser printers. It also claims that the
    printer’s running costs are comparable to that of a laser printer too,
    at less than 0.5p per page for black and white printing and just 1.89
    pence per page for colour. The B-500DN costs £382.The company has also
    released a high-performance laser printer called the AcuLaser M4000 for
    larger organisations that need high-speed, high-volume printing
    options. Priced at around £600, the M4000 can print up to 43 pages per
    minute, even at its maximum 1200dpi resolution. Its twin paper trays
    can hold 750 sheets of paper, and it can handle a workload of 20,000
    pages per month.

    Canon Selphy CP770, CP760, and Pixma iP100
    Selphy CP770 photo-printer folds up into a kind of bucket shape,
    complete with handle so that you can carry it around with you. The
    CP770 costs £139, and you can buy a portable battery pack for
    £50.There’s also a more conventional version designed for home use
    called the CP760, priced at £89. Both models use dye-sublimation
    technology to produce photo-prints. Canon says that this makes the
    photos more durable than prints from conventional inkjet printers, as
    each print has a special coating that protects it from water splashes
    or fingerprint marks.The new Pixma iP100 is a portable photo-printer
    designed for travelling business users, or home users who simply want a
    compact printer that doesn’t take up too much space. The iP100 measures
    32cm wide, 18.5cm deep and 6cm high and weighs just 2kg. It has a print
    resolution of 9600x2400dpi resolution and Canon claims that its
    rechargeable battery can print up to 290 pages when fully charged. The
    only drawback is that the £199 price tag seems a bit steep to us.

    Lexmark Z2320, Z2650 and X4650
    has turned its attention to home users and students, with three new
    models that aim to provide high quality printing at a competitive
    price.Abandoning the rather bulky design of previous models, the new
    printers are more compact and have either a black or white finish. The
    new range starts at just £39.90 for the Z2320, which claims print
    speeds of up to 22 pages per minute for black and white documents, and
    a maximum print resolution of 4800dpi for photo-printing.For just £10
    extra you can get the Z2650, a ‘multifunction’ printer that also has a
    built-in scanner, copying features and OCR software (optical character
    recognition) for scanning text documents.Finally, there’s the X4650,
    another multifunction model that combines printer, scanner and copier
    in a single unit. This one is more expensive, though, costing £129.99,
    as it also includes wireless networking features that allow you to
    share the printer with other users on your home network. This model can
    print at up to 25ppm, and it includes the latest 802.11n wireless
    technology, which means that it will work well with Apple’s Airport
    Extreme base stations.
