Product Specifications

The Epson Stylus CX5200 is a new All-in-One: a one-stop home or home office printing and copying solution. It has high-speed standalone color copying capability, with no need to power up your PC for high quality, fast, color copies. Based on the latest inkjet and scanner technology, the Epson Stylus CX5200 benefits from DURABrite inks, separate ink cartridges and high-speed, high-resolution printing and scanning. The Epson Stylus CX5200 offers high-speed printing at up to 22ppm black and 11ppm color - with inks dry as soon as they leave the printer. With 5760 optimized dpi resolution, the Epson Stylus CX5200 produces crisp, dense blacks, vibrant colors and high-definition photo quality printing. A new printer driver offers more on-screen information than ever. Ink levels can be monitored, beginners can adjust basic settings or experienced users can access a variety of advanced controls. The Epson Stylus CX5200 utilizes separate Intellidge cartridges for each of the four colors. Enhanced feedback with accurate ink level monitoring keeps you fully informed, and resalable valves allow partially used cartridges to be removed and replaced at a later date - say when a full one is needed for a large print run. The built-in high-quality 1200x2400dpi scanner gives you the power to capture documents, photos and an almost infinite range of other business materials or family keepsakes in accurate detail and rich 48-bit color. Epson Smart Panel software provides a host of user-friendly tools and shortcuts that automatically chooses the correct scanning parameters for optimum copying, scanning and photo printing activities. The Epson Stylus CX5200 is a high-speed standalone copy solution, with an intuitive LCD interface for PC-less copying. Advanced standalone copying and page layout options are available that mimic the functions of a real photocopier - without powering up your PC.
