Epson has launched the Stylus C40UX, a four-colour inkjet printer.

The £79 printer offers a 1,440-x-720dpi resolution for black and colour printing that, when combined with Epson's Variable Sized Droplet Technology, ensures fine detailed prints, according to the company.

The C40UX has a print speed of up to eight pages-per-minute (ppm) monochrome and 3.9ppm colour. It also features USB connectivity, advanced driver functionality - including PhotoEnhance 4 for automatic image optimisation - a retractable paper tray, and power and cancel buttons.

The printer ships with a black cartridge that would normally retail for £9 and a colour cartridge that would cost £13.

The printer has a one-year on-site warranty, which can be extended to three years at a cost of £41.
