Epson has introduced its first monochrome inkjet printers in 15 years - the Epson K100 single-function and K200 all-in-one printers. The launch of the new monochrome printers is in response to the growing customer demand for high-performance and low-cost monochrome printing.
According to leading technology research company IDC, sales of monochrome laser printing devices in Asia Pacific (excluding Japan) continued growing strongly by 40 percent - almost double the growth of colour laser printers at 22 percent over the same time period. IDC also expects both monochrome and colour laser printers to experience continued growth over the next five years. Epson believes that there are great opportunities for the new Epson K100 and K200 monochrome inkjet printers to capture a significant portion of the monochrome laser market with the superior value that they offer.
The new monochrome inkjet printers are designed as a superior alternative to laser printers for customers who only need to print black and white documents at very low cost per page. The high-performance Epson K100 and K200 offer the printing speed and text quality of a monochrome laser printer at an extremely low running cost of only 1.5 cent per page, and many other useful features that are not often found in laser printers of their price range.
The Epson K100 single-function and K200 all-in-one printers are available at all authorised distributors at SGD$188.00 and SGD$268.00 respectively.
