WHY THE EPSON LX-310?
Building on its reputation as the world’s top dot matrix printer maker, Epson has introduced the Epson LX-310 as the next-generation narrow carriage, 9-pin model that replaces the legendary LX-300, featuring vastly improved speed and reliability.

Extreme Speed
The Epson LX-310 features a 128KB input data buffer memory that is double that of its predecessor. This enables it to achieve high printing speeds of up to 357 characters per second at 12 CPI.

Improving on Legendary Reliability
The Epson LX-310 also has an improved reliability rating that is an astonishing 67% higher than its predecessor that was already renowned for its dependability. The LX-310 is rated for a mean time before failure (MTBF) of 10,000 POH (power on hours) compared to the older model’s 6,000 POH.

High Impact for Multiple Carbon Copies
Achieve optimum efficiency with the LX-310’s ability to create up to a 5-part form printout (1 original + 4 copies).

Flexible Connectivity
With built-in USB, Serial and Parallel Interface options, the LX-310 is able to connect to just about any output device you need it for.
