    The printhead mechanism operating principles of the Stylus Photo 870/ CSIC: 1270 are basically the same as for the previous EPSON ink jet printers. CSIC is a non-volatile memory EEPROM attached to each black This printer, however, employs a newly developed ink and improved and color ink cartridge.
