Epson has introduced its next-generation narrow carriage dot matrix model: the Epson LQ-310. This new printer is an upgraded version of its best-selling LQ-300 models, and features greatly improved speed and reliability.
It features a 128KB input data buffer memory that is double that of its predecessors. This enables the 24-pin LQ-310 to achieve high printing speeds of 347 characters per second at 12 CPI – or almost 40% faster than the previous models.
The Epson LQ-310 also has improved reliability ratings that are an astonishing 67% higher than its predecessors that were already renowned for their dependability. This new model is rated for a mean time before failure (MTBF) of 10,000 POH (power on hours) compared to the older models’ 6,000 POH.
The Epson LQ-310 is priced at RM560 in Malaysia.
