Product Description

Why the Epson LQ-2090?

The Epson LQ-2090 has the speed and durability to handle the relentless daily printing demands of everywhere from banks to freight forwarders. From orders and invoices to barcodes and cheques, it prints up to 529 cps on up to 5-part forms. You can also choose from optional wired or wireless networking to share its capabilities across your business.

Reliable performance

This printer is built to last, with a mean 'volume between failure' of 40 million lines, a mean 'time between failure' of 20,000 power-on hours and a print head life of 400 million strokes per wire. The ribbon matches up to the hardware, with a life of up to 8 million characters.

Take your pick

Choose the way you work with cut-sheet or continuous paper handling combinations that suit the demands of any office or warehouse. This includes a standard front paper guide for handling smaller sheets.

Fits right in
