1. Introduction
A powerful color laser printer for Windows & Macintosh users, the Epson AcuLaser
C1000 is designed to complement the AcuLaser C2000 in the Epson range of color laser
printers.
This sales manual aims to explain the benefits of the Epson AcuLaser C1000,
comparing it with both the AcuLaser C2000 and its main rival, Minolta QMS magicolor
2200 DeskLaser.

3. Sales points
3-1 Print quality
The AcuLaser C1000 provides small businesses and individual users with high-quality
color laser printing that is the equivalent of the AcuLaser C2000. Output is highly stable,
even after replacing toner cartridges.
High quality / high stability printing
3-2 Speed
Despite its lower cost and equivalent printing quality, the AcuLaser C1000 concedes
nothing to the AcuLaser C2000 or the Minolta QMS magicolor 2200DeskLaser in terms
of speed.

b. First print speed
Although the engine speed is the same, when printing business documents, the
AcuLaser C1000 is faster than the Minolta QMS magicolor 2200DeskLaser. (See
Chapter 6-2 Comparison data for details.)
*Performance of the AcuLaser C1000 depends on the PC being used.
Competitive printing speed

AcuLaser C1000 Sales Manual
3-3 Macintosh capability
Unlike its main rival, the Minolta QMS magicolor 2200 DeskLaser, the AcuLaser
C1000 is designed to offer superior color laser printing to Macintosh users either on a
standalone basis or over a network using Appletalk. Macintosh users can connect to the
AcuLaser C1000 using the USB port.
* The AcuLaser C2000 (with PostScript option) is recommended for Macintosh users
with complex graphic arts requirements.
Ideal for Macintosh users
3-4 Network capability
Designed for individuals and small business users, the AcuLaser C1000 can be easily
upgraded for use on small networks. The AcuLaser C1000 only supports LPR, Port9100
and AppleTalk protocols. (See Chapter 4 Network connectivity for details)
Network capability increase users
3-5 USB 1.1 capability
Unlike the Minolta QMS magicolor 2200DeskLaser, the AcuLaser C1000 is equipped
with a USB 1.1. One of the advantages of the USB 1.1 is that it is not necessary to
reinstall the printer driver when the printer is connected to a different USB port on the
PC.
With previous versions, the user had to reinstall the printer driver whenever he or she
changed the port connection.
USB 1.1 capability increases options
3-6 Superior paper handling
An optional duplex unit presents users with even greater printing options, while a
500-sheet paper tray shows that the AcuLaser C1000 makes no compromise on paper
handling.
Advanced paper handling capability

3-7 Printer driver
The AcuLaser C1000 offers users a number of options through its printer driver. Unlike
the Minolta QMS magicolor 2200DeskLaser with its single mode, Epson provides the
choice of either quality or fast mode.
The driver of the AcuLaser C1000 provides users with a number of options
Users are soon aware of errors through the status monitor, which is automatically
installed with the driver.

3-8 Stylish design
With its stylish 2-tone design, the AcuLaser C1000 will blend in perfectly with the
interior of any small office.

4. Network Connectivity
Designed for individuals and small business users, the AcuLaser C1000 can be easily
upgraded for use on small networks. The AcuLaser C1000 only supports LPR, Port9100
and AppleTalk protocols.
* For bigger Windows-based networks (except those with LPR and Port9100 protocols),
the AcuLaser C2000 is recommended.
4-1 Leo 2.1 (EpsonNet 10/100 Base Tx Int. Print Server 2)
The AcuLaser C1000 can only be connected to a network via the Leo 2.1 interface card,
which is connected to the printer via the Type B slot. Users already owning Leo 2.0 can
upgrade to Leo 2.1 via the firmware. (The upgrade instruction sheet is inside the
product) However, it is recommended that users wishing to upgrade download the latest
version from the Web site.

Yes: Recommended environments
No: User can send data to the AcuLaser C1000, and printing will be done. However,
there is no guarantee, as the status monitor cannot communicate with the printer.
(It is necessary for the status monitor to communicate with host-based printers. If this is
not possible, users cannot check the printer status, and are unable to clear errors because
the printer has no LCD or switches.)
*1 EpsonNet Direct Print is necessary
*2 Windows standard LPR or EpsonNet Direct Print
* 3 The default setting of NetBEUI and Netware is “ENABLE” in Leo 2.1.
However, the AcuLaser C1000 does not support these protocols as the status monitor
cannot communicate with the printer via these protocols. Users or administrators should
set the EUI and Netware default setting to DISABLE.
* 4 FTP, IPP, and NDPS Gateway cannot be set to DISABLE, and users can send data to
the AcuLaser C1000 via the above protocols. However, the status monitor cannot
communicate with the printer via these protocols, and the protocols cannot be
guaranteed.
Support protocols are only for LPR,

c. Differences in data processing
Although the output of the Epson AcuLaser C1000 and the AcuLaser C2000 can be very
similar, the data processing method is different. With the AcuLaser C2000, color
conversion is carried out on the printer side (printer driver). However, color conversion
for the AcuLaser C1000 is carried out on the PC side. The performance of the AcuLaser
C1000 is therefore heavily dependent on the PC.

AcuLaser C1000 Sales Manual
The AcuLaser C1000 ensures that colors are accurate and consistent through the use of
Epson exclusive technologies.
Epson color RITech keeps color definition sharp, with clean edges that make charts and
graphics stand out.
AcuLaser Color Halftoning provides print resolution equivalent to 2400dpi (defined
print resolution: 600 dpi). Halftoning also improves the quality of the all- important
black output, so text is extremely sharp and images have excellent contrast.
e. Performance comparison
Comment
When compared to the print speed performance when printing business documents, the
AcuLaser C1000 is approximately the same speed as the C2000. However, the
AcuLaser C2000 is faster when printing image data. (We recommend the C2000 for
users who mainly print image-related documents.)

• Support AppleTalk
• USB 1.1 compliant
Epson AcuLaser C1000
Minolta QMS magicolor 2200 DeskLaser
a. Performance comparison
Comment
The engine of the AcuLaser C1000 performs well even when printing business
documents from a slower PC. This is in contrast to the Magicolor 2200DeskLaser,
whose engine performs poorly under similar circumstances. The C1000 even has a
slight advantage when printing from a faster PC.
When printing image documents the magicolor2200DeskLaser is faster. However, the
printing quality of the C1000 is superior. (magicolor 2200DeskLaser seems to be
sacrificing print quality for speed.)
