Sometimes I wonder if the economy is really down when companies can make so many different products. I suppose the truth of the matter is that even though we don’t have a lot of money to spare we are used to all of our necessities. I mean, when my computer, printer, TV, game console, electronics of any kind go out, I need to fix it or replace it immediately and why not?
It’s my job, my entertainment, my way of life, but it also gives me the chance to find a good bargain.
If you’re on-line reading my blog, chances are you feel the same way or close to the same thing. That’s why Epson came out with so many different printers. They have the all-in-one printer at different price points
Epson introduced four ink jet printers to its Stylus NX series at an affordable price, including the entry-level Epson Stylus NX115 ($69.99*), Epson Stylus NX215 ($89.99*), Epson Stylus NX415 ($99.99*), and the flagship of the series, the Epson Stylus NX515 (149.99*).
Their intent is to give you more bang for your buck.
“Each product in the Epson Stylus NX family gives you more for your money by delivering a better combination of features and print quality than competitive products at the same price point,” said Kristi Lanzit, product manager, consumer ink jets, Epson America Inc. “Products range from the entry-level Epson Stylus NX115 all-in-one to the extremely fast flagship Epson Stylus NX515, which is up to two times faster than any comparable printer in its price range1, with built-in Wi-Fi® and Ethernet.”
Since I haven’t tried one yet I want to just give you information and not opinion so this is from their Press Release:
All four Epson Stylus NX models are simple to setup and use, and offer smart features. They also produce output that is smudge-, fade- and water-resistant with Epson’s exclusive DURABrite® Ultra all-pigment inks for printing recipes that won’t run when spilled on, invitations that will maintain their outstanding print quality through the mail, and long-lasting, durable photos. In addition, the series utilizes Epson’s award-winning MicroPiezo® print technology and is ideal for consumers looking to get more in a home printer at an affordable price.
Additional Features and Benefits of the Epson Stylus NX Series:
· BorderFree® photo printing

In 2009, the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) – the world’s largest developer and publisher of international standards – introduced an official standard used to measure print speeds on ink jet printers. The flagship Epson Stylus NX515 offers a black ISO speed of 15 PPM and color ISO speed of 9.3 PPM. More information about ISO is available at www.iso.org, and details regarding Epson print speed measurements, including complete ISO reports, are available at www.epson.com/printspeed.
The Epson Stylus NX515 is currently available for “pre-order” for a limited time through Amazon.com, BestBuy.com, Fry’s Electronics and Epson’s retail site. All of the Epson Stylus NX series printers will be available in June through major retailers.
Also for those of you that like to print photos:
Priced at $99.99 (estimated street price), this compact and stylish printer enables users to create Ultra Hi-Definition photos with amazing richness, depth and clarity. The Epson Artisan 50 also lets users print their own images and text onto ink jet printable CDs and DVDs. It can also print documents, e-mails and itineraries quickly and easily at print speeds up to 38 ppm color, and laser-quality speeds of 5 ppm black and 4.8 ppm color.
For me though, I need this baby:
