The Epson Stylus C43 is a device that works well for users outside of a business or workplace. This inkjet unit can conveniently store up to 100 sheets of paper in its input tray, create greeting cards and produce exceptional photos with lab quality. It produces excellent text and graphic documents with its maximum resolution of 2880 dpi using black and color Epson C43 ink, though not as impressive as HP 75 ink. Slow printing speeds and its low yielding tanks of printer ink make the C43 best suited for home usage.
Black Epson C43 ink produces sluggish printing speeds of only 12 pages per minute, while color ink prints about 6 pages per minute. There are more efficient models, such as the B209 printer which features HP 564 Black ink and colors (28 ppm). With the C43, though, a 4x6 inch full color photo takes approximately 2 minutes to print. On average, printing with the C43's normal mode can produce a maximum of 1.2 documents per minute.
This unit has two Epson C43 ink cartridges, one of tricolor and one of black. Tricolor tanks of printer ink last for approximately 180 pages, while its black tanks yield roughly 330 pages. Since Stylus C43 ink cartridges have a lower capacity, users will be spending large amounts of money over time on replacement tanks. For higher volume users, units with higher capacities, such as Canon PG-210XL ink might be a better choice.
The box comes with a tank of black and a tank of tricolor Epson C43 ink. The C43 is compatible with Windows and Mac operating systems. Features like a fast parallel port, Epson MicroPiezo technology and AcuPhoto Halftoning help this inkjet printer provide users with effortless and quality results.
The C43's parallel connectivity option allows users to have a quick and easy setup. Its variety of included software and Epson's Intellidge Stylus C43 ink system help this unit's already high quality photos print with excellent accuracy. The Epson Stylus C43 is a good choice for consumers interested in a low-volume personal photo printer that produces outstanding results.
