Epson has made its first foray into the colour laser multifunction market with the launch of its AcuLaser CX11N series. Epson’s CX11NF and CX11N models are targeted at small office and workgroup users, and offer impressive print speeds that Epson hopes will catch the eye of business buyers across the region. Epson touts multiple copy and printing speeds for these machines of 25ppm in mono and 5ppm in colour (for both models), plus first page out times of nine seconds in mono and 17 seconds in colour. At the launch of the two new machines in Rome last week, Epson even went so far as to show a video in which the photocopy speed of the CX11N series eclipsed that of Canon’s 170C. In addition to prints, copies and colour scanning, the AcuLaser CX11NF also adds full fax functionality, while both CX11N models feature the Epson Net 10/100 Base Tx Ethernet interface, which allows users to scan documents and print across the office. Designed to be simple to use and administer, both models also feature large back-lit LCD control panels, with which users can check on an MFD’s current status and examine toner consumption. The CX11N and CX11NF use the same driver user interface (UI) as Epson’s AcuLaser 2600 series. Free software is included with both MFDs, allowing business users to create colour documents easily and manage scanned files and photos. A business card scanning utility is also bundled, along with character recognition software – Presto! PageManager - and filing utilities including Office Ready Essentials.
