Epson Launches "Hi-Definition" PX650 Photo Printer

While its reference to the Epson Stylus Photo PX650 as "hi-definition" might be enough to make me cringe, Epson's past performance in the all-in-one photo printer market (see: the PX800FW) suggests that such claims might just be justified.

According to Epson the PX650 will produce photos "that exceed lab quality" thanks to its dye-based Claria Photographic Ink. Despite that claimed quality, a 10x15cm photo can be whizzed out in 12 about seconds - which is reasonably nippy - either from a PC or from a memory card or PictBridge compatible camera.

A 2.5in LCD display on the printer makes it possible to perform simple pre-printing edits without the need for a computer. The PX650 will also print to appropriate CDs and DVDs should you fancy customizing those (and who wouldn't?). At 1,200dpi the scanner module in the PX650 should prove good enough for all but the most discerning user.

The Stylus Photo PX650 will carry a £129.99 MSRP when it launches in September.

And how much will the fancy inks cost per cartridge?

Also do we know if it has Wi-Fi like the PX800FW?

Will you be reviewing the PX710W soon - it looks and sounds good?

austin316gb hit the nail on the head. The cost of a manufacturers own brand of ink is extortionate and should be investigated and then remedied by the appropriate authorities. Sorry my fault, I forgot we were British and therefore we should be used to being ripped off.
