    Je veux seulement vous dire un gros merci pour la rapidité avec lequel vous avez traité ma demande et aussi pour le petit extra en papier photos,c'est très apprécié.



    I received my order, thank you for your great customer service..



    It is not often people write emails or letters of praise but consider this one of the rare ones!
    I must say, ordering your product was about the easiest imaginable. Coupled with the fact that it arrived here basically “next day” I am thoroughly happy. To tell you the truth, I was expecting to have to go pay full retail for one black cartridge thinking that your’s would take at least a week to arrive but I was wrong, the order arrived before I could even go out to get one!
    Congrats people, I WILL tell all my friends and neighbours about you!

Epson Micro Peizo Advantages

Friday, January 05, 2007

Droplet Size

Epson, is the only vendor to utilize a Micro Piezo system. An electric signal sent to a crystal changes the crystals shape and forces ink out. This gives them the advantage of being able to vary the electric current there bye changing the size of the resulting ink “droplet”. Current bubble-jet technology allows for only 2 different droplet sizes.


With this being said Epson has been able to produce smaller droplet sizes and offer an overall higher print resolution for their photographic prints.

Speed / Flexibility

Epson has a further advantage in that the Piezo system operates at normal temperatures where bubble-jet technologies use extremely high temperatures to produce a “Bubble” that forces ink out of the cartridge. Because of this extreme heating of the ink ‘Bubble Jet” technology further limits the chemical composition of the ink so as not to allow it to be changed under these higher temperatures. As a result of the heating, Bubble Jet printers also need to allow the heating “elements” to cool for short periods of time (micro/milliseconds) there bye limiting the maximum print speeds for this technology.


Epson has manged to provide for a single head to be supplied in their printers that lasts a (Printer) lifetime. Current bubble jet type heads appear to have a lower lifespan as a result of these repeated heating and cooling cycles.
