Epson’s Small-in-One range now features Wi-Fi Direct

Fast, convenient home printing

9th August, 2013 – Epson is making home printing easier than ever, as it launches its new range of Small-in-One home printers with Wi-Fi Direct™. Ideal for printing family photos and household documents, these printers[1] allow home users to print directly from Wi-Fi-enabled devices without the need for a wireless router.

With Epson Connect[2] – Epson’s mobile and cloud printing service – and automatic Wi-Fi set-up, Epson is already a strong supporter of hassle-free wireless printing. The addition of Wi-Fi Direct sees Epson taking its next step in providing users even more options, when it comes to printing wirelessly around the home.

The range consists of the Expression Home XP-412/413/415, 312/313/315, 215 and 212. Each printer offers the opportunity to save space, money and time thanks to their small dimensions, individual inks and a range of user-friendly features.

These all-in-ones are all compatible with Epson iPrint2, which allows users to print wirelessly from smartphones and tablet PCs. In addition, the XP-412/413/415, 312/313/315 and 215 allow users to print from anywhere in the world, by emailing photos and documents directly to the printer’s unique email address. These printers are also Google Cloud Print ready.

All models use Epson’s four-colour Claria Home Ink set that combines the durability of black pigment ink with the glossy colour photo output of dye-based cyan, magenta and yellow inks. This versatile ink set delivers crisp, clear text documents and glossy, lab-quality photos.

Easily recognisable with their distinctive Daisy image packaging, users will be able to immediately identify the correct ink cartridges for their printer. All cartridges are available in standard and XL sizes, with page yields displayed clearly on the front of each pack, making it easier for users to decide which cartridge size best suits their printing needs.

Simon Hanly, product manager, Epson UK, says: “More users than ever before are using mobile devices, so we’re always looking at ways we can offer greater printing flexibility. In addition to Wi-Fi, Epson Connect and Google Cloud Print, we now have Wi-Fi Direct which allows users to print directly from their smartphone, tablet PC or wireless laptop directly to their printer - no router needed, no hassle.”

The XP-412/413/415, 312/313/315, 212 and 215 are available immediately, priced at £89.99, £79.99 and £69.99 respectively.

AT 81 yrs I had to buy another printer. At PCWorld few were available from their web, in the shop. The staff were very helpful, I walked out with an EPSOM XP 215 The set up took a little time but I did it.I have printed, copied . scanned great. As for cloud I am too close for comfort.The replacement cartridges on the web look so much cheaper ,time will tell Any piece of electronic equipment is a gamble so I wish everyone the best of luck.
