Epson Rolls Out Powerhouse $200 Stylus Photo RX680 All-In-One and Two Others

Two hundred bones will get you a lot of printer these days. Epson's Stylus Photo RX680 printer/scanner/copier is a Gutenberg wet dream with text and copy speeds up to 40 ppm, two separate paper trays that can hold a total of 270 sheets of paper, draft photo printing in 11 seconds and an auto-duplexer for hassle-free double-sided action.

Today, Epson also introduces the RX680's baby brother, the $149.99 RX595—a bit slower, with everything but the duplexer and extra paper tray. If all you want to do is print, there's also the $99.99 Epson Stylus Photo R280: 38ppm in a slimmed-down package.
