Nuggets: Epson keeps those printers coming

Colourful new siblingsHaving expanded its laser printer family, Epson is also boosting its inkjet range.

First up is the cheapo Stylus Colour 460. This prints at speeds of up to 4ppm and uses a dual-cartridge system that allows true black printing and photo printing without having to add different cartridges.

Other features include Epson's Photo Enhance 4 to automatically adjust colour balance, exposure and contrast, with tone, sharpness and digital camera options. There are also options to let you add effects to images, including canvas, sepia and parchment masks.

In the shops now for £89.99.

Those with a bit more cash to get rid of could consider the Stylus Colour 760. Print speeds here are 7ppm. It features Epson's Variable-Sized Droplet Technology, which gives PhotoReal quality prints with smoother graduations.

Unlike the Colour 460, this printer supports Macs as well as PCs. You also get Adobe's Photo Deluxe 3.0 Home Edition thrown in.

Out now for £155.

Finally, there's the Stylus Colour 860, aimed more at business users.

This prints at up to 9ppm and features what Epson calls "quiet printing". There are five tone settings, automatic, people, nature, soft focus and sepia, and five effect settings. It's out now and will set you back just over £200.
