Epson expands EcoTank line with new Heat-Free premium printers

If you wanted more proof that laser printers are on the way out then look no further than Epson’s latest printers now on the market.

Epson has introduced the EcoTank Pro ET-5150 and EcoTank Pro ET-5170, ideal for home offices and small businesses.

And … two photo printers that also print documents .. just fine (video reviews coming soon).

Using EcoTank Pro these printers make a compelling argument to replacing heat-producing laser printers.

If you haven’t used an EcoTank printer you are throwing your money away – in the mid-to-long term.

I’ve had the ET-4750 for a couple of years now and still have more than half of my ink supply in the tanks.

Until this printer .. when I ran out of ink .. I was always buying cheap, cartridge driven units from various brands to get an urgent print job done – usually late at night.

It was easier to buy a budget printer than find a store with the right ink cartridge which prevented me printing a document.

Just like the laser printers I’ve had over the years, these tuned out to be a waste of time, money and resources once the first print job was complete.

Since converting to EcoTank I’ve not had a single printing issue.

It changed the game.

EcoTank Photo Multi-Function printers

When it comes to printing documents and photos you often had to buy two printers.

One for text and one for images.

But now Epson has two new options that will allow you to print A4 or A3 documents or photos without compromise.

Targeted at amateur photographers, the wireless, multi-function EcoTank Photo ET-8500 and ET-8550 use 6 colour Epson Claria ET Premium inks, can print up to 2,300 high-quality photos or 6,700 pages in black and white or 6,200 pages in colour with one set of ink bottles at low running costs. 

After inspecting the prints I believe these printers are good enough for pro prints as well.

Both new printers come with the new 6 colour Epson Claria ET Premium ink set to produce high-quality, long-lasting, borderless photos of up to A4 size with the ET-8500 and to A3+ with the ET-8550.

The photo black and new photo grey ink makes it easy to achieve detailed, high-contrast black and white photos.

The pigment black ink ensures sharp text when printing double-sided documents on plain paper.
