Epson has launched its most advanced inkjet photo printer, the Epson Stylus Photo R3000. The Stylus Photo R3000 includes automatic switching between individual black ink cartridges depending on the printing media, allowing optimal results on both matte and glossy paper stock.

The Epson Stylus Photo R3000 uses nine individual pigment-based inks, which offer significantly superior resistance to fading and environmental degradation compared to the dye-based inks in most printers. Wi-Fi (802.11n), Ethernet and USB 2.0 allow the printer to be connected to a standalone computer or a network, and PictBridge support means a camera or storage device can be connected for direct printing.

The Stylus Photo R3000 is aimed at photographers and specialist printers and includes an extra two years of warranty compared to other Epson products, for a total of three years' coverage. The R3000 will be available this month for a recommended retail price of $1499.

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

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
