Rivals

May be, Epson Stylus Office B1100 is one of that few devices that have no immediate rivals. We can compare the device with its large-format brothers just because of the ability to produce A3 format prints. Still most of large-format b1100 epson printers either aim at photo printing or use a combination of professional ink with 8-9 cartridges for additional hues rendering.

Design

Epson stylus b1100 is a classic square-like printer. It looks like most Epson large-format printers. Though Epson b1100 printer design is up-to-date, still it is rather austere. Epson Stylus Office B1100 printer is presented in conservative color gamut: light-grey and black. Its compactness as for A3 format printer is one of the reasons to buy it.

Printer Epson Stylus Office B1100 with CISS

Speed of printing

Epson Company advertises rather quick printing speed of 30 black and white pages of text per minute. This fact can be explained just by presence of 2 black cartridges. Color printing speed is claimed to be 17 pages per minute. It seems to us that such a speed can be provided by variable ink droplet technology only, though Epson official press release doesn't say a word about it.

Epson office b1100 and Epson Stylus Office BX305FW Plus are provided with cartridges of higher capacity which is 11.1ml for each. However, the cost per each cartridge is $20. So it is essential to look for a reasonable alternative, for example, CISS.

Testing

Predictably, speed specifications are exaggerated. In the draft mode Epson B1100 performs 17.2 monochrome pages and 9 color pages per minute. Standard mode prints 13.2 and 4.2 pages respectively. Still such performance is acceptable. Epson Stylus Office B1100 prints a color A3 photo for 4min 31sec. To print standard photo it takes 1min 12 sec.

Obviously it is rational to buy epson office b1100 in order to perform text document printing for results are satisfactory. Though photo printing and color rendition is not as good, still it is bearable because Epson B1100 is not intended for this purpose.
