Epson LQ-690

Monday to Friday 9:00 to 18:00 HKT

24-Pin Dot Matrix Printers, high yield A4 24-pin printer

Very Fast 
Print faster and more productively, thanks to the Print Speed Enhancer - a unique feature in the Epson driver. Perfect for those printing directly from any Windows ® applications. Also, LQ-690 is capable of printing an impressive 440 cps (10 cpi) when using printer resident fonts.
High Ribbon Yield 
In a demanding and fast-moving work environment, a high ribbon yield is essential, and with 10 million characters per ribbon, this marks out the LQ-690 as a leading force in the flatbed market. It is also cost-effective with long ribbon replacement cycles, low running costs and total cost of ownership.
Dependable 
Durable and built to last, users will be assured by the MTBF (mean time between failures) of 20,000 power on hours, plus a print head life of 400 million strokes/wire. This results in greater productivity and less maintenance - essential when producing large amounts of documents and data.

    • Designed with the dot matrix user in mind, our latest model has an impressive print speed of up to 440 cps. This flexible and compact printer can easily handle cut sheets, continuous paper, labels, envelopes and cards. It has a built-in Print Speed Enhancer to increase the speed of bit image printing, making it an ideal printer for those in the most demanding of work environments.
