PRESS RELEASE: The Epson Stylus SX515W brings Wi-Fi and fast, quality printing to the home
5 May 2009 – The new Epson Stylus SX515W is a high-speed compact printer, scanner and copier with Wi-Fi for people who want quality, speed and flexibility.
Packed full of functions in a modern design, the Epson Stylus SX515W can be shared amongst multiple computers, and users can print or scan wirelessly from several desktops or laptops around the home. An Ethernet connection is also included for wired networking.
With a 6.3 cm LCD viewer, in-built PictBridge and memory card slots, there is no need to turn on a PC to print all your photos. The LCD viewer also enables you to view all menu functions and photos with ease.
Producing lab-quality photos in addition to high-quality documents is easy thanks to Epson’s DURABrite Ultra Ink - an advanced pigment-based ink technology that encapsulates the ink particles in a protective resin coating. This makes the ink resistant to water, smudging and can be used with highlighter pens. It also produces superb text definition and lab-quality photos which can last over 200 years when stored in an album.
The Epson Stylus SX515W comes with the added benefit of individual ink cartridges, saving money as only the colour used needs to be replaced. These individual ink cartridges are easily identified by the ‘Cheetah’ image and are also available in a convenient, cost-saving multipack.
The Epson Stylus SX515W uses Epson’s industry leading Micro Piezo™ print head technology for superb quality prints and encompasses a high-speed print engine which produces print speeds of up to 36 pages per minute.
Additionally, the new push-scan button can be used to automatically scan documents and photos to your PC. You can also use it to scan to PDF or to email and thanks to Epson Easy Photo FixTM you can restore colour, remove dust and correct backlight when scanning old faded photos.
The Epson Stylus SX515W also features ABBYY FineReader® Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software, which makes it easy to scan text into editable documents. In addition Epson PhotoEnhance and Epson Easy Photo Print software are included to enable users to adjust the colour and contrast of images and remove red-eye with the click of a button.
For the best quality photos, Epson recommends its range of glossy photo papers. Available in three finishes – Photo Paper, Glossy Photo Paper and Premium Glossy Photo Paper – the 3, 4 and 5 star rating makes choosing the right photo paper simple. An Epson Photo Paper Pack is included in the box, so users can start printing high-quality photos at 10x15cm, 13x18cm and A4 sizes straight away.
The Epson Stylus SX515W is an ENERGY STAR® qualified and Energy Savings Recommended all-in-one which reflects Epson’s ongoing focus to reduce the carbon emissions associated with the use of its products.
Richard Aplin, Product Manager at Epson UK commented: “With more households having several wireless laptops or computers, flexibility and the capacity to share a printer becomes essential. The Epson Stylus SX515W incorporates Wi-Fi which allows multiple users to print and scan wirelessly from around the home, eliminating the need to have more than one printer.”
