Epson LQ-1050 Printer Review

Expert review of the Epson LQ-1050 printer

Our Verdict:

The Epson LQ-1050 dot matrix printer, a wide-carriage version of its predecessor, the LQ-850, is an advanced and powerful 24-pin printer that combines reliability with high performance. Continuous and single sheets can be fed through simultaneously, making it ideal for flexible processing, and its controls allow for micro-adjustments forwards and backwards in increments of 1/180 inch. With status monitoring built in, this is a perfect printer for any modern office space that can be got up and running straight from the box.


The Epson LQ-1050 measures 23.8 x 14.2 x 3.6 in and weighs just 26.46 lb, making it light and compact enough for the busiest work environment with space at a premium. Print speed is 220 cps at 10 cpi and the unit is capable of handling up to 4-part forms, as well as envelopes and all standard business print sizes. Print resolution is 10 to 12 cpi depending on requirements, and the printer uses high-impact dot matrix technology to guarantee crisp, perfect monochrome output every time.


Incorporating fewer dots to increase speed, the LQ-1050 can handle large volumes of input, making it ideal for an office environment that has a high turnover of printed material. The 24-pin Epson technology guarantees precision and high quality whether tickets, envelopes, invoices or any other material is being printed, and with parallel and serial connectivity available, connecting the unit presents no problems.


As the LQ-1050 does not include scanning and copying capabilities some users may find its use limited, and the lack of an LCD monitor can also be seen as a drawback. There are no expansion bays, and for a business that sees its volume of printed output increasing in the near future this too could be considered a disadvantage. Output is also limited to monochrome and the printer must be shared from a PC or connected to a printer server to all access from the network.
