Key Features
High Speed, Volume and Reliability – For small to medium business owners, productivity is key and the new range of L-Series printers offer print speeds of up to 15 ipm[2]  for the business printers and up to 45 sec per 4R print for the photo printers. Users can be assured of a reliable and durable machine that can handle heavy loads, with the inclusion of 1 year warranty[3] that comes with every printer.

Extremely high print volume and low cost per page – Having set the benchmark for the lowest cost per print, Epson’s new range of L-Series printers continues to provide business and home users with high quality prints at the lowest price and highest yield.

Ultra high performing and reliable Epson Micro Piezo print head – The Epson L-Series printers were created utilising Epson’s multi award-winning Micro Piezo technology. Highly reliable and more durable than competing thermal print head technology, Micro Piezo print heads are built into the printer and are capable of printing high volumes . This allows the L-Series printers to achieve a low running cost while still providing high quality prints. The Micro Piezo print head achieves a maximum print resolution of 5760 x 1440 dpi[4] and its variable size droplet technology (VSDT) allows the print head to eject ink droplets in multiple sizes, ensuring the greatest detail and extremely smooth gradations in documents or photographs.

Print wirelessly from mobile devices with Epson iPrint – The new L-Series includes the L555 which is the world’s first original ink tank system with fax and Wi-Fi capabilities. This means that users of the L555 will be able to use the free Epson iPrint app to wirelessly print items like documents, web pages and photos using either Apple iOS or Google android mobile devices. The Epson iPrint app also allows users to scan items using the L555 printer and have the images saved to their mobile devices or stored online to their cloud storage services.

“Insist on Epson” Genuine Product Promise – The Epson L-Series printers are the World’s First Original Ink Tank System Printers. The neatly integrated ink tubes built into the ink tanks allow for fuss free ink refilling while the genuine product promise means that unlike third-party systems, the Epson L-Series Original Ink Tank Printers are covered by Epson’s warranty for up to a year3.
