Highly detailed photos that demand highly defined prints

Epson’s Stylus Photo PX730WD and PX830FWD bring photography to life

18th August 2011 - Epson’s latest home photo printers have been specifically designed for photographers who want to print their favourite pictures with better-than-lab-quality results. With the additional benefits of automatic Wi-Fi set-up and the new Epson Connect service, users can easily print photos and documents around the home without being tethered to a computer.

The PX730WD is designed for those who are serious about their photography but also want to share printing, scanning and copying activities with the rest of the household through its Wi-Fi capabilities. The PX830FWD, meanwhile, is Epson’s premium 4-in-1 for high definition printing at home, offering top-of-the-range features for printing, scanning, copying and faxing.

Both printers use Claria Photographic Ink to produce photos that users will be proud to display, having been specially developed as the ideal partner for DSLR and compact cameras. The dye-based ink works to give high definition results every time but is also versatile enough to ensure the rest of the household can use it for their non-photo printing needs.

The automatic Wi-Fi set-up[1] makes configuring laptops and computers to print wirelessly extremely easy. Users don’t need to know their network settings or connect with a USB cable, these printers automatically find the relevant connection settings in order to configure themselves. Multiple users then have the freedom to print, scan and copy quickly and efficiently from anywhere in the home.

Epson’s new mobile printing service, Epson Connect, offers more flexibility and freedom with printing around the home, allowing users to quickly and easily print photos and documents wirelessly from smartphones and tablet PCs.

“These printers are ideal for home photographers who want high definition printing with a lot of extra user-friendly features,” says Neil Wilson, business manager, consumer products at Epson UK. “Anyone can print their favourite photos at home with better-than-lab-quality results, while at the same time also print long lasting, durable documents.”

The Epson Stylus PX730WD and PX830FWD are available from 1 September 2011 and will be priced at £259.99 and £299.99 respectively.

I've been using the Epson Pro printers for a number of years now and as I tell my clients, "If it's good enough for the Smithsonian Institute, it's good enough for me!" I bought an Epson desktop printer a few years ago and was appalled by the very high quality of the prints! I complained to Epson for making it so easy and inexpensive for anyone to get professional quality photographic prints at home! Epson makes awesome printers!

I have always used Epson printers. Bit slower than some others but fantastic results. Looks like a good printer at a reasonable price.

Very cute, but what's the difference between this and pervious PX720wd model?

Other than impressive 150% price hike, that is.

It`s one of the worst printers I`ve ever bought and I`ve had many.
The noise and paper loading are back to the old Sinclair printer.

Epson Stylus Photo RX595 is also a new all in 1 printer which is not hard to install and use. And as we all know that it is created by one of the world's leading printer manufacturers. Epson parts such as ink cartridges and toners are available in local market and worldwide.
