First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.
Epson STYLUS C66

Coming bundled with extras such as photo paper and Epson's Image Framer software, the STYLUS C66 has a print resolution of 2880 x 1440dpi (dots per inch), with 5,760dpi available using optimisation.
In initial testing we experienced a few problems with the C66's ability to keep the paper straight, but this was easily corrected. While it offers borderless printing, it can only do so for 10 x 15cm photos.
At the lowest quality settings, the C66 can rattle off 10ppm (pages per minute) of text. The lowest-grade print is so pale as to be almost unusable, however, so you'll more likely be using a slower printing mode. On the middle quality settings, the C66 is capable of crisp text--and at this quality setting it printed at 1.6ppm during our testing. Graphic printing was also very fast and, for good results, real-world times 0.7ppm are achievable.
