Design-wise, the Epson EcoTank ET-2550 just looks like your ordinary printer, however, it has one huge difference up its sleeve. Instead of the traditional inkjet printer cartridges, it will use a set of ink bottles that users can empty themselves into a large, refillable reservoir. These bottles will hold enough ink that can last about 4,000 pages of black ink and 6,500 pages of color. To give a rough estimate as to what this means, it means that it can handle ink that can last for about two years before needing to refill again.
The Epson EcoTank ET-2550 is Your Most Economically Friendly Printer
With the use of this new ink system, the Epson EcoTank ET-2550 aims to save users the trouble of constantly running out of ink at those critical moments. For office folk, this means that they don’t have to run to the supply store every month to purchase a new set of ink cartridges. When the reservoir is running low, all you have to do is to buy another batch that will last just as long. This will cost far less than your standard cartridge.
The catch to get this economically friendly printer? The EcoTank ET-2550 printer has an initial price point that is higher than most standard inkjet printers. Furthermore, it lacks many features that are found in modern “regular” inkjet printers. It doesn’t do fax, no auto-document feeder, no scanner, and there is no duplexer for double-sided printing. This is just your run-of-the-mill but highly economic printer.
But even though it doesn’t have those extra features, printing speeds are phenomenal even for an inkjet printer. It also has Wi-Fi connectivity built into the device so that the machine can take advantage of the company’s host of free iOS and Android apps which lets you print documents straight from your mobile device.
This is your baseline inkjet printer with output speeds that far excels that of the ordinary. If you’re wondering if the printing delivery speed will affect the quality of the printed documents and images in any way, then worry not because it won’t. It can produce black text of high quality that will appear nearly identical from its cartridge-bearing cousins.
Another plus side when operating the ET-2550 is it has a quiet operation. Which means that this is a stealthy alternative as opposed to louder all-in-one devices.
Even though the Epson EcoTank ET-2550 is placed at a higher price package as compared to what you have to shell out to get “regular” inkjet printers, it will let you save a lot in terms of ink refills on the long run.
