Epson has launched its new L-Series ink tank printers, with six new models (L6190, L6170, L6160, L4160, L4150, L405, ) ranging from S$539 to S$329. Available 22 September, 2017. Prices below.

A post shared by John Tan (@tech4tea) on

  • ISO Speed: 15 ipm / 8.0 ipm
  • Wireless, Ethernet, Mobile & Cloud Printing
  • Supports Apple Airprint & Mopria Print Service
  • Borderless photo printing up to A4 size
  • User replaceable maintenance box available for added convenience

Unlike the new integrated ink tank printers, the new L405 (S$329) retains the external ink tank design of Epson’s existing ink tank printers, resulting in a larger footprint.
