Epson EcoTank ET-2550 review: A printer that can go at least 2 years before its first ink refill

 

The Epson EcoTank ET-2550 might look like a standard small form inkjet printer, but there's one big difference: instead of the traditional inkjet cartridges that most printers use to put images and text on paper, the EcoTank series comes with a set of...

The Epson EcoTank ET-2550 is a multifunction printer, copier and scanner that can hold enough ink to last two years without a single refill. The subsequent refill bottles are also much cheaper than traditional cartridges, offering potential savings...

The printer costs four to eight times more than cartridge-based models. It has a very minimal display and feature set, lacking an Ethernet port, fax functionality, auto-document feeder and duplexing

With its ultra-low-cost refillable ink bottles, this clever little Epson EcoTank printer does away with pricey ink cartridges once and for all -- but it will cost you a lot more up front.

Great idea but I had nothing but trouble

 

o do it so many times that the machine turned itself off on me and gave me a code to call EPSON. So when I did I was assuming that would give me a code to clear it but no it meant it was a failure because the waste tank was full so they sent me a new...

"Not real flash" UPDATE after 6 months use

 

The printer and scanner have worked well for 6 months now. There have been no paper feed problems. There have been a number of software updates that were painless. Ink levels have only reduced by about 20%, so they should last about another 2 years -...
