Epson Expression ET-2550 EcoTank (color)

 

The bottles have enough ink in them to print about 4,000 pages of black ink and 6,500 pages of color, which is roughly the equivalent of a two-year supply at moderate print volumes.

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.

Epson Expression ET-2550 EcoTank All-in-One Printer

 

The Epson Expression ET-2550 EcoTank All-in-One outputs great text and graphics, and can save you a ton on ink once you've paid off your initial investment on the inkjet multifunction printer.

Comes with ink for up 4,000 monochrome and 6,500 color pages. Very low costs for replacement ink. Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi Direct. Above-par photo and text quality in testing.

High up-front price for the printer. Tiny display. No Ethernet. Lacks fax and automatic document feeder. Slow performance and below-average graphics in tests.

Conclusion Buying an EcoTank printer is a considerable outlay of cash, with the promise of dramatic cost savings over time. To realize them, you may have to stick with the printer for several years. For $100 more than the ET-2550, the Epson WorkForce...

Epson Expression ET-2550 EcoTank All-in-One Printer Review and Ratings

 

Epson's EcoTank ink delivery boosts this AIO from a pricey-per-page entry-level printer to a workable choice—if you don't mind paying for months of ink up front.

Low cost per page with EcoTank ; Satisfactory print, scan, copy quality for grade of printer ; Compact, and easy to set up ; Decent cloud, mobile-device support ; SD/SDXC memory-card support

High initial purchase price ; Slow print speeds ; No document feeder ; No way to check ink levels from control panel or your PC

What new ink approaches such as Epson’s EcoTank and HP’s Instant Ink have done is make low-volume inkjet AIOs affordable to use long-term—by cutting down the CPP, way down. Granted, getting in on EcoTank costs a

Epson ET-2550 Review

 

The ET-2550 offers a dramatic reduction in ink costs and produces excellent photo prints and scans. Serious photographers will love the sharpness and depth of the ET-2550's glossy photo prints — and given their heavy use of ink, stand to benefit the...

Very low cost per page ; Excellent photo-print and scan quality ; Fast at black-and-white copying ; Fast to start up

High up-front cost ; Slow scanning and photo printing

While this printer is pricey up front, the ET-2550's refillable ink tanks make it very economical over time and a good fit for people with heavy printing demands.

Epson kills off its old business model with a printer that eliminates ink cartridges. But do the DIY refills justify the higher price tag?

Epson ET-2550

 

This is a three in one unit (no fax) it prints, scans and copies. With recent units this can not only be via a PC but also other devices via the WWW. It is unlikely to pass the lounge police so with Wi-Fi it can sit behind the sofa or even in a cupboard.

The Epson ET-2550 is available from with free delivery.

Bottles not Cartridges : Epson ET-2550 Eco Tank

 

It was just over twelve months ago that Epson turned its approach to the printer inkjet market on its head. This change was brought about by the company's EcoTank technology.

While this EcoTank technology has resulted in a big drop in the running costs of this printer, the upfront cost has seen an upward jump. The ET-2550, which comes with a three year warranty, is currently priced at £259.69 on Amazon.co.uk. This...
