Samsung, Epson Introduce New Mac-Compatible Printers

New Mac-compatible printers hit the market this Monday—one intended for institutional users, the other two intended for home office photo printing.

Samsung’s new CLP-775ND color laser printer is being pitched for use in business, government, and education settings. The CLP-775ND is powered by a 600 MHz Dual Core processor and sports 384 MB of memory; it constitutes a 500-page cassette, a 100-sheet multi-purpose tray, and a 350-sheet output tray to enable 35-page-per-minute printing. The printer can handle a variety of paper stocks, ranging in size from 3-by-5 inches to 8.5-by-14 inches.

Epson, in the meantime, revealed two new printers for home photo printing—the Artisan 837 and Artisan 730. Both Artisan devices let users print photos, web pages, and email attachments wirelessly from their iPad and iPhone, in addition to from their Mac computer at lab-quality resolution, Epson says.

Both machines present print speeds of 9.6 single-sided pages-per-minute using black ink or 9.1 pages-per-minute for color images.

Samsung’s printer is offered for a suggested retail price of $1,072. Whereas, Epson’s new printers will be available in September: The Artisan 837 will trade for $300; the Artisan 730 will sell for $200.
