Epson - Stylus Photo 830U

 

The Epson Stylus Photo 830U looks very similar to the C62, and they are clearly from the same family. But apart from that cosmetic similarity they are very different to each other. The main point is ...

Product Specifications

The Epson Stylus Photo 830U is a six color, A4 home photo inkjet printer offering unbeatable value. Designed for outstanding performance, the Epson Stylus Photo 830U is perfect for all the family, delivering professional quality photo prints, reprints and enlargements at high speeds. The Epson Stylus Photo 830U produces photo prints just as you get from your film processor - borderless, long lasting and of great quality. You can now produce your own reprints and enlargements at home, with the finishes you prefer, at your convenience. The Epson Stylus Photo 830U puts you in complete control of your photos, so you'll never need to go back to the high street film processor again! The Epson Stylus Photo 830U produces great quality photo prints, pin sharp text and sparkling graphics due to an amazing 5760 optimized dpi resolution. Quality is also enhanced by Epson's special 6-color ink system, which improves print quality and gives finer details, smoother gradations and deeper shadows. But there's no compromise on speed because the Epson Stylus Photo 830U prints up to 14ppm mono and 13.7ppm color. This is thanks to the exceptionally small ink droplet that Epson's Variable-sized Droplet Technology produces. This ensures fine details and smooth gradations are maintained in all printing modes. Prints from the Epson Stylus Photo 830U last a long time, especially if produced with genuine Epson media, which gives up to 25 years light fastness. There is no need to crop your finished prints either, as the Epson Stylus Photo 830 prints border free on a variety of different paper sizes.
