Product Description

Epson LQ-590IIN 24-Pin Dot Matrix Printer

A functional and reliable printer, the Epson LQ-590IIN is extremely versatile and is capable of delivering precision quality prints of both text and graphics.

Boasting amongst other features a 6 Plus One Original carbon copy mode, the printer is the ideal machine for printing receipts to invoices, sales orders and technical documents, so is very much at home in a business environment.

A very fast and versatile printer

The LQ-590IIN has high quality printing, scanning, faxing and copying capacities. What's more it can also handle a wide variety of medias, including sheet paper, continuous paper, roll paper, cardboard and envelopes, and is therefore the ideal machine for a busy corporate environment, a warehouse or a shop. The printer's relatively compact dimensions: 437‎mm(W) x 375mm(D) x 177mm(H) mean it can be placed virtually anywhere and will not cause any space issues within your work environment.

Making use of the Impact Dot Matrix technology, and fitted with 24 needles and 24 pins, the LQ-590IIN has a mind blowing print speed of 550 cps (characters per second) which means it will increase productivity in a high printing environment.

A machine that is easy to use

The Epson LQ-590IIN is very easy to use, it is windows compatible so will fit perfectly within most business's existing IT infrastructure. Especially as it has both network, USB, card slot and parallel connectivity, which means it can be configured using a simple PC. As with most Epson printers, the cartridges are very easy to change and do not require the intervention of a specialist.

Minimal maintenance requirements

The LQ-590IIN is extremely robust and reliable, as it can cover mean time of 25,000 hours of printing between failures. However, the machine is covered by a 12-month warranty which covers any maintenance issues in the unlikelihood they should occur during that time.
