Epson has just introduced the first two members of its fall product lineup, the Artisan 837 and 730 color ink-jet All-in-Ones for home and home-office users. Earlier in July, Wirth Consulting visited with Epson executives at a midtown-Manhattan analyst and press event to preview the new All-in-Ones, as well as other not-yet-announced ink-jet systems. While the other new members of Epson’s fall product line are still under non-disclosure, one bit of information we can share is that the firm will definitely be expanding to play in the higher-volume ink-jet segment.
Upgrades to the new Artisan 836 and 730 include a much brighter green touch panel panel with 2.5” color LCD; the brighter LEDs make it operate the touch panel. And, in a departure from the black that seems to have become the norm, the units feature a midnight-blue chassis; both re-designs make for a striking appearance.
The Artisan 837 and 730 also incorporate wireless connectivity and Epson Connect for printing from mobile devices without connecting with cables to the printer or downloading print drivers:
* The free Epson iPrint app is for mobile printing from Apple iPhone, iPad, and iPad touch mobile devices. Users can print Web pages, Microsoft Office documents, photos, and Adobe PDFs. They can also use the Artisan to scan to their Apple mobile devices, and then e-mail the document, upload it to a Cloud document-storage and sharing site such Dropbox or Google Docs, etc.
* The free PrintJinni for Epson app also for Apple devices is compatible with iWork and Microsoft Office, and is for printing photos and PDFs. It also provides full-page print previews
* The PriApps Mobile Print app is $9.99 and is for printing from BlackBerry smartphones.
Both Artisans are the same except that the flagship Artisan 837 ($299.99) also provides color fax, PC fax, and 30-sheet automatic document feeder. The Artisan 730 provides flatbed platen scanning only (no document feeder).
Specifications are still limited for the new Artisan 837 and 730, both of which use Epson’s MicroPiezo ink-jet technology and Claria Ultra Hi-Definition inks, but available information is as follows:
* Wireless Wi-Fi Certified n2 and Ethernet networking.
* Rated ISO print speeds of 9.6 (black)/9.1 color. Duplex ISO print speed is at 4.9 (black)/4.7 (color) ppm color. Print 4"x6" photos in as fast as 10 seconds.
* Automatic duplex printing, and two paper trays. Print on ink-jet printable CDs/DVDs.
* Auto Photo Correction software.
* Individual ink cartridges that are available in both standard and high-capacity sizes.
* Both units are Energy Star-qualified and comply with RoHS standards.
The Artisan 837 and Artisan 730 will ship in September through major computer, office and electronic superstores, a variety of retail stores nationwide and at Epson's retail site
