5th September 2006 – Epson launches the Stylus Photo RX560, a six-colour premium quality All-in-One as an addition to its award winning range. It features Epson’s new innovative Claria Photographic Ink for superior photo quality; Epson PhotoEnhance technology for bright and vibrant photos and Advanced Variable Sized Droplet technology for smooth tones and fast print speeds. With individual ink cartridges from only £6.99, it offers cost effective printing and copying as you only need to replace the colour you have used, a feature of all Epson consumer printer range for 2006. The RX560 also features an A4 flatbed scanner with optical resolution up to 1200x2400dpi to deliver high-quality scanning and copying.
From the colour 2.5” LCD viewer, users can view photo’s on their memory cards. You can also enjoy a wide range of features without switching on your computer, for example, edit, crop, remove red-eye, add fun-frames, scan, print and copy. The Stylus Photo RX560 is ideal in a busy household or small office where premium quality photo printing, copying and scanning are a priority. In addition it is suitable for general text printing needs.
Epson Claria ink technology has been specifically formulated for photographic printing. When combined with Epson glossy photo paper, it delivers superior quality, glossy prints with the highest levels of durability. The six colour inkset includes; cyan, magenta, yellow, black, light cyan and light magenta. It offers 200 years durability in album storage, so your family photos can be shared for many generations to come. Claria ink is available in individual cartridges from only £6.99 each for cost effective photo printing.
With Epson PhotoEnhance technology, images featuring skin tones, landscapes and skylines are detected automatically and reproduced with enhanced colour settings to improve the overall tones and contrasts. It is particularly useful when the subject in your photo is darkened by shadow. You don’t need to be an expert in software manipulation to get the best out of your photos.
The Stylus Photo RX560 also features Epson’s Advanced Variable Sized Droplet Technology (Advanced VSDT). With five different droplet sizes it uses its smallest droplet of 1.5pl for areas where fine detail is required and larger droplets where there are blocks of colour in your image. As well as allowing Epson to provide fast printing speeds, Advanced VSDT works in harmony with the Epson Micro Piezo™ print head to produce premium quality photos with smooth gradations and tonality. You can print a 10x15cm photo in just 13 seconds and up to 30 pages of text per minute.
The Stylus Photo RX560 is also compatible with PictBridge and USB DIRECT-PRINT™ for convenient, computer-free, photo printing. You can even print directly from your Bluetoothâ mobile phone by using the optional Bluetoothâ adapter.
The versatility of the Stylus Photo RX560 allows you to print directly onto inkjet printable CDs or DVDs to personalise your digital albums. Flexible printing options and a range of compatible Epson glossy photo paper enables you to print your photos in a range of sizes, including 10x15cm (4x6”), 13x18cm (5x7”) and A4. You can also get creative with the variety of presentation formats, for example, choose from colour, black and white or sepia photos, or insert a digital photo frame to your image.

I see on some sites (Jessops).....
that the RX560 has a built in slide/negative holder for the scanner. However I do not see this on the Epson web site. Can you advise if this printer includes this facility or if the scanner can scan negatives?

Am I the only person out there with negative comments about the ink consumption of the Epson Stylus RX560. I purchased mine 3 months ago and I am already on my fouth set of ink cartridges(one original set, one non Epson compatable set & two Epson manufactured sets) I print very few photos (maybe a dozen in 3months) I print on average maybe 6 sheets from internet per day(mainly text). I have spent almost £100 on replacement ink. With my previous Epson printers (Photo Stylus 870 and Colour 440) I spent a lot less than that in a year...
I have two further gripes..A) I can't get it to print in black & White & B)when any one of the colours runs out, the printer suddenly ceases to function. As a result you can't print anything until you have purchased a replacement cartridge. The previous models would still print (albeit very poorly)using the nearest simmilar colour.
I certainly wont be buying another Epson printer when this one gives up the ghost..It seems to be an extreem case of selling the printer cheaply so they can rob the punter blind with ink sales!
