New Epson Expression Photo XP-860 with Six-Color Ink System, Epson Connect Mobile and Cloud Connectivity
Epson America has added the latest addition to its Expression Photo family, the XP-860 Small-in-One ($299.99 estimated street price), which is designed for home use, and with its six-color ink system, for photo-printing enthusiasts. The Expression Photo XP-860 uses six Epson Claria Photo HD Inks, and can produce borderless images on up to 8.5″x11″ media. It’s also equipped with Epson Connect for printing and scanning documents, photos, email messages, and Web pages from a tablet, smartphone, or computer from literally anywhere in the world.
Connectivity includes Ethernet network interface, and Wi-Fi Certified n2 and Wi-Fi Direct wireless connectivity for mobile printing without connecting to the network, plus built-in USB port and memory card slots for PC-free printing. There’s also a dedicated photo tray, back paper-feed tray for handling specialty media, and direct printing on CDs and DVDs. The Expression Photo XP-860 also enables users to edit, scan, and share photos directly to Facebook and other document- and image-sharing Web sites in a single workflow.
There’s also a 30-page Auto Document Feeder for automatic two-sided color printing, copying, scanning, and faxing, as well as a 4.3-inch LCD touchscreen with gesture navigation. The auto-extend output paper tray automatically extends when a print job is received, a key advantage when printing to the XP-860 when users are printing to it remotely.
Other Expression Photo XP-860 features include:
- Epson Connect, a suite of free mobile printing solutions including Email Print, Epson Creative Print, EpsoniPrint, Epson Remote Print and Epson Scan to Cloud, to print documents, photos, emails and Web pages from remote locations to any Epson Connect-enabled printer.
