Epson Colorio PM-730C Printer

The Epson Colorio PM-730C share the 4-pl microdots and MSDT (Multi-Size Dot Technology) with the higher-ranking model of Colorio serie (Colorio PM-890C), yielding attractive photo output with high 1440 dpi resolution.
This printer is designed for users who wish to print out photos in a variety of forms, and it come packed with fun photo output functions. For starters, it support BorderFree printing on cut paper, a function that has enjoyed strong popularity since its announcement at the end of 2000. The printer let the user enjoy printing out BorderFree photos of size L and 2L, just right for albums, and also greeting postcards, with no border at all, on official-size inkjet postcards. The Epson Colorio PM-730C is the first low-price printer to offer BorderFree printing.
The Epson Colorio PM-730C is ready to use Print Image Matching, the advanced technology with high digital camera compatibility that is quickly gaining popularity. When using a combination of a digital camera with this function and a printer compatible with it, Print Image Matching applies a print command to photo data when the digital camera captures it, and the printer uses this command to print. The resulting data can faithfully recreate the intended color, brightness, etc. as captured by the digital camera or record the desired coloring optimized by the user at the site of the image, thus yielding perfect digital photo printouts.
Epson PhotoQuicker 3.1, software for easily printing high-quality photos, comes standard with the Epson Colorio PM-730C. Epson PhotoQuicker 3.1 is compatible with the new Print Image Framer function. This means that in addition to the standard layouts found in Epson PhotoQuicker3.1, users can add other desired frame layouts to their printed photos, including photo frames and New Year and other seasonal frames.
Finally, the Epson Colorio PM-730C already had standard-equipment drivers for the new Windows XP operating system set to launch in November 2001. Drivers also come standard for Windows 95/98/Me/2000/NT4.0 and for Macintosh. The printer driver is packed full of functions, including a new feature that lets even low-resolution images (such as those downloaded from the Internet) print out attractively, and functions suited for text document printing, such as multi-page printing and stamp marks.
