When looking for a new personal printer, it is important to find a unit that has the ability to deliver high-quality documents consistently and affordably. The Epson Stylus C40 is a color inkjet printer that can produce as many as 8 black-and-white text documents or 5 full color prints per minute. For a standard color picture, it can take up to 5 minutes to produce, depending on the complexity. The C40 has two paper trays- an input tray that can hold up to 100 pages or 10 envelopes or other specialty media and an output tray on the bottom of the machine.
The piezoelectric printing method allows the unit to reach a maximum resolution of 720x720 dpi using the Epson C40 ink. Resolution is determined by the number of printer ink dots are distributed per inch. Nozzles are attached to the printhead and eject tiny dots of Stylus C40 ink. There are only two Epson C40 ink cartridges that are used, even though cyan, magenta, yellow and black printer ink are needed to create accurate photos.
The black Stylus C40 ink cartridge has a maximum page yield of 210 prints while the tricolor can only produce up to 150 pages before expiring. Replacement Epson C410 ink is available from the manufacturer or from online vendors.
With a weight of only 6 pounds and a compact frame measuring 16.7x18.1x10.9 inches, the C40 will fit comfortably in a home office. Unfortunately, it is only compatible with Windows operating systems, so Mac users will need to look elsewhere. The input paper capacity is 100 sheets, but multiple types of paper are supported by the trays, such as transparencies, labels and envelopes. Overall, this Epson inkjet machine makes an ideal personal printer and provides high-quality prints for an affordable rate.
