Epson PX650 photo printer

Epson recently announced the upcoming release of its Stylus Photo PX650 all-in-one printer, which it aims at digital photographers who the company thinks will get better quality prints than labs can produce. PC-free printing is made possible thanks to a 2.5-inch LCD screen and a memory card slot, or via PictBridge compatibility with digital cameras. The PX650 can also scan and copy prints thanks to its 1,200DPI resolution scanner.

Epson claims prints created using the PX650 will last for more than 200 years thanks largely to its dye-based Claria Photographic Ink. Individual ink colors can be replaced, and the PX650 will ship with a starter pack of photo paper. Printing a 5.9- by 3.9-inch photo is said to take about 12 seconds.

The Epson Stylus Photo PX650 will be released on September 1st in the UK for the equivalent of $215. A US release is expected at or near the same time. [via Pocket-Lint]

    Clogged heads

    Too bad the heads will clog after a month and you'll have to shop for a new printer.

    You're smoking crack

    The last time I had an Epson that clogged only a month after getting it the year was 2002. Today if you buy something other than the cheapest Epson model possible you will find it to be an excellent printer ESPECIALLY these Claria ink based models and the prints are phenomenal. I have had my WorkForce 600 for nearly a year and have NEVER had to running a head cleaning cycle. I have an RX680 and in nearly 2 years of use it has only had one cleaning cycle conducted.

    What About The Artisan?

    Is the PX line going to replace the Artisan line?

    I'm waiting for the Artisan 800's replacement for faxing and CD printing.

    Regarding clogged heads, my 4800 clogs whenever I don't use it for a few days, but the print quality is worth the hassle.
