Epson combines brilliant color with 2,880 x 720 dpi resolution in the Stylus Photo 820. Epson's PRINT Image Matching technology oversees six separate fast-drying color photo inks that are formed into superfine 4-picoliter droplets, resulting in bright, accurate, true-to-life color. The 820's prints are frequently indistinguishable from standard photographs, making this an ideal printer for professional applications as well as the home office.
Print speed is a respectable 12 ppm for black-and-white prints, while a 4-by-6-inch photo takes roughly 48 seconds. The 820 supports a wide variety of media types, including standard letter-size paper; greeting cards; banners up to 44 inches; and 4-by-6-inch, 5-by-7-inch, and 8-by-10-inch borderless papers. The input tray holds 100 sheets or 10 envelopes, and the output tray holds 30 sheets.
The Software bundle includes Epson Software Film Factory with Print Image Matching support, Arcsoft PhotoImpression 3.0, and QBeo PhotoGenetics 2.0 TE. Installation and connectivity are easy, with both USB and parallel ports provided. Compatible with both Windows and Macintosh, the Photo 820 comes with a one-year warranty and is backed by the Epson Exchange program.
