If you're after a printer that is ultra-low cost and hassle-free then look no further! For today's blog post I will be partnering with Epson to review one of their printers from their EcoTank series. The particular model I will be reviewing is the ET-2650.
What is an EcoTank Printer?
EcoTank is the name of a range of printer's sold by Epson that are all built with an ultra-high-capacity ink tank system, that completely removes the need for cartridges. They work by replacing cartridges with ink bottles. This is fantastic, especially for home printing because:
- You're not constantly running out of ink
- The ink you do buy will last AGES before it needs replacing again
Using an EcoTank Printer can save you an average of 90% on the cost of ink. When you open your printer, it comes with high yield ink bottles that can print an impressive 4,500 pages in black and 7,500 pages in colour. This means you’ll receive an extremely low cost-per-page in comparison to cartridge printers.
If you're like me and you're running your own business, they could save you a fortune throughout the year. It's a great solution if you're constantly printing out things like shipping labels, work documents or university work.
It's also great for the environment and helps to reduce the worry of running out of ink so that you can focus on building your business or your studies.
Is an EcoTank Printer easy to use and replace ink bottles in?
Very much so!
Upon opening my printer, I had the ink bottles inserted and set up my printer wirelessly in under 10 minutes. It only took three easy steps to set it up. Another feature I love with the wireless printing is that once set up, you can print from smartphones and tablets. You can even email files from anywhere in the world via Epson Email Print.
Replacing ink cartridges can often be a messy job but replacing the EcoTank's ink bottles is completely mess free. Everything is contained inside them and you simply slot them into their designated slots inside the printer.
EcoTank ET-2650 Features
The EcoTank ET-2650 is 3-in-1 inkjet printer and offers print, copy and scan features. Once you install the EcoTank drivers, you will have software that will automatically scan images and save them onto your desktop.
It also features an LCD screen and SD card slot, making it effortless to control without a PC. It also includes a 12-month warranty for peace of mind.
My Verdict on my EcoTank Printer
I've been using my EcoTank for around a month now and I've been loving it. I've been doing a lot of test prints of business documents and shipping labels for my eBay business and I've not even put a dent in my ink levels yet. It's been very reliable so far too and I've not encountered any issues with the printing or scanning. I've been impressed with the quality of my prints so far too. If you're planning on investing in a reliable printer for work or university, I'd strongly recommend and EcoTank so you're not constantly going out of your way to replace your ink.
