For print quality, a variable amount of ink remains in the cartridge after the “Replace Cartridge” indicator comes on. For questions or the latest pricing, see an Authorized Epson Reseller. Built to Perform s-series Selling Proposition S30 | S50 | S70 EPSON SureColor S-Series Extreme Print Speeds - the way solvent printing should be. Be more productive - Get more done Amazing Photographic Print Quality - Provides for more opportunities - Keeps customers happy and coming back Highly Reliable - More uptime - Less downtime Environmentally Responsible - Less harmful chemistry - Lower power consumption Complete Media Versatility - Print on virtually anything - White, clear, even color-based media types Low Initial Investment & Low Everyday Cost-of-Ownership - Be more profitable - Grow your business! Built to Perform Footnote Definitions 1 - The printer is designed to use only EPSON ink cartridges and not other brands of new or refilled cartridges, or other brands of ink or bulk ink systems. Using EPSON cartridges is important for reliable performance and high image quality. Epson offers voluntary recycling of spent ink cartridges. 2 - Based on testing of one printer in a room of 180 m3 and a ventilation coefficient of 2.2 (without any fan or air conditioning). For more information, see the MSDS sheets at www.proimaging.epson.com 3 - The print head is a maintenance part which the user is responsible to replace when necessary. However, Epson covers head replacement while the printer is under the Epson Preferred Limited Warranty and under any Preferred Plus Plan (limited or unlimited number of head replacements, depending on the Preferred Plus Plan purchased). The life of the print head will vary depending on the user's print volume, print patterns and heater temperature for print settings. Doing proper user maintenance of the print head will help prolong its life. 4 - Three-year durability is an estimate based on accelerated testing by Epson according to ISO 18930, on 3M ControlTac IJ180-10 film in a vertical display orientation in simulated outdoor display conditions. Actual durability can vary significantly. The estimate does not include prints made using orange, white or silver metallic inks. EPSON MAKES NO WARRANTY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AS TO IMAGE DURABILITY ON ANY MEDIA OR IN ANY CONDITIONS. EPSON HAS NO LIABILITY OF ANY KIND FOR FADING OR ANY OTHER CHANGE IN A PRINT NO MATTER HOW DISPLAYED. Some media providers, such as 3M and Avery, do warrant image durability for these Epson printers; see the providerís website for details.
