With a maximum monthly duty cycle of 25,000 prints, the Epson Stylus Photo 870 would be able to handle the needs of a small office, but is designed to be a personal printer. It is a color inkjet unit, equipped with two Epson 870 ink cartridges that offer a wide variety of color tones that ensure image accuracy. Long gone are the days of taking film to the local photo lab, professional-quality pictures can now be printed right from home.
Speed is not the strongest feature of the 870, as it can only deliver 8 text documents per minute using black or color Stylus Photo 870 ink. When printing a borderless 4x6" picture, it takes a little less than a minute. An 8x10" photograph takes about 2 minutes. Other photo paper sizes are supported, such as 5x7" and 8.5x11". Envelopes, labels and transparencies are just a few of the various media types that can be printed with the 870. The maximum input capacity is 100 sheets and the output tray can hold up to 30 sheets of standard paper.
Black printer ink resides within its own Stylus Photo 870 ink cartridge and can produce as many as 540 prints before expiring. The cyan, magenta and yellow ink share the other Epson 870 ink tank and can print up to 220 pages before replacements will be needed. When that day comes, users have a few options. OEM Epson 870 ink can be purchased from the manufacturer or certified resellers while compatible replacements are available online from third party vendors.
This inkjet printer can connect to a single PC via USB or parallel port. It is compatible with Windows, Mac and all other standard operating systems. The Epson 870 is a user-friendly machine that has a low-ink detection feature and a maximum resolution of 1440x720 dpi.
