Epson LP-S3500

Mark: Average

The Epson Offirio LP-S3500 is a current Japanese-market laser printer which uses the ESC/Page printing language.

ESC/Page is *not* related to ESC/P or ESC/P2, which are 'dumb' JCLs for dot-matrix and inkjet printers. ESC/Page is a fully-fledged page-description language for laser printers, on a par with PCL. There is a very old Japanese-only ESC/Page printer driver buried deep on the OS/2 DDPak site, but it is long obsolete, and causes crashes and traps on recent systems.

That's the bad news. The good news is that Epson released open-source ESC/Page drivers for Ghostscript several years ago. If you have a recent build of Paul Smedley's Ghostscript port, you can use Ghostscript as a printer driver to print to various models of Epson laser printer, as described at: http://svn.netlabs.org/ecups/wiki/GhostScriptRasterPrinting

For the LP-S3500, one should use the Ghostscript 'lp8700' driver.

Once configured, printing works very well. I've only given this a mark of "average" because (a) the initial setup is quite complicated (but you should only have to do it once), and (b) printer-specific features aren't necessarily supported fully, due to having to use a generic Postscript driver (but it might be possible to improve that by finding a better PPD file).

I've successfully printed to several printers of this model via TCP/IP (using the LPD protocol). Instructions as described through the URL above.
