Fast time-to-print for a single colour page, outstanding print quality

Doesn't support Ethernet, expensive running costs

The Epson Aculaser C1100 is a good choice for low-volume colour printing, with best of breed output quality, providing you don't mind the slightly higher than average running costs and slow colour output.

Epson Aculaser C1100 - Colour Laser Printer

 

The Epson Aculaser C1100 is a surprisingly fast carousel based colour laser printer, but how does it measure up to recent competition.

Epson Aculaser C1100 review

 

With its boxy looks and unremitting noise, the AcuLaser doesn't make the world's best first impression. It's designed for small workgroups who occasionally need colour printing rather than single users or home offices, and it shows.

A bit of a chunker, but very fast and good for small workgroups.

Compared to some of the more lightweight models around, you can tell the Epson really means business as you struggle to lift all 28kg of printer out of its box. It's two to four inches larger in every direction than many other desktop colour lasers

Product Specifications

The ultimate printer for small businesses and individuals, the affordable Epson AcuLaser C1100 gives you amazing quality color and fast black and white printing. It allows you to print a variety of material in-house, including brochures, stationery, invitation cards and menus. No need for separate mono and color printers. Save money with one superior printer that meets all your needs. The Epson AcuLaser C1100 uses Epson very latest print technology to give you inexpensive laser printing without any compromise on quality. With fast print times and low running costs you will spend less on your in-house mono printing. And because the same printer gives you high-quality color results, outsourcing print jobs will become a thing of the past. The Epson AcuLaser C1100 delivers documents in perfect vibrant color and accurate, sharp black and white thanks to the innovative Epson Aculaser Color ASIC printing and Wrap transfer technologies. And the new Epson AcuBrite toners allow high quality reproduction of fine details, outstanding color expression and uniform image quality. From high-volume letters, mailshots, invoices and payslips through to prestigious color brochures, invitations and presentations, the Epson AcuLaser C1100 does it all. Now it is easier than ever to create your own impressive color materials with the Office Ready Essentials software bundled free with your Epson AcuLaser C1100. Using Microsoft Office, select from over 150 professionally designed templates, including presentations, flyers, invitations and business forms. You can even convert your finished documents into PDFs so you can e-mail safely your company's documents. Remember how frustrating it is when you print out Web pages and lose part of the text or graphics? With the Epson Aculaser C1100 and Web2Page software, Web pages automatically adapt to fit your chosen paper size. The last thing you want is to wait for your printing to finish. The Epson AcuLaser C1100 has a first page out time of just 9 seconds and prints black and white documents faster than a mono-only laser printer with an impressive 25ppm. Not only does it cut down waiting time, the Epson AcuLaser C1100 also cuts your running costs. The cost per page for black and white is less than or the same as many mono printers. Furthermore, separate black and color toner cartridges ensure low operating costs and no waste. And because you can also print color when you need it, you only have one printer to run and no costly and time-consuming outsourcing to worry about.
