“Because the way we work and live continues to evolve, customers are seeking more advanced, but still easy-to-use solutions that can keep up with the new demands of their homes and workspaces,” said Maria Kisska, group product manager, Consumer Inkjet, Epson America, Inc. “We’ve launched a new generation of our best-selling, most popular EcoTank portfolio to continue meeting the day-to-day printing needs of families and professionals, and reducing the ongoing worry of running out of ink and the high-cost of replacement ink.”
The new EcoTank all-in-one printers offer cartridge-free printing with high-capacity, easily refillable ink tanks for zero ink cartridge waste. Users can save up to 90 percent with replacement ink bottles versus traditional ink cartridges,1 and each replacement ink set for the new EcoTank printers is equivalent to about 90 individual ink cartridges,3 enough ink to print thousands of pages.4 The new printers include up to 2 years of ink in the box5 – and with every replacement ink set5 – for fewer out of ink frustrations, and all new models utilize EcoFit™ ink bottles for easy and worry-free filling.
By using an EcoTank cartridge-free Supertank printer, families and professionals not only maximize productivity and enjoy the freedom to print in color, but also can help reduce the amount of cartridge waste ending up in landfills. The new printers leverage heat-free printhead technology that produces sharp text and impressive color and graphics on virtually any paper type. Additional productivity features include a high-resolution flatbed scanner for crisp and professional scans, a color display for easy navigation, hands-free voice-activated printing,6 and wireless connectivity so users can easily print from smart devices7 with the intuitive Epson Smart Panel® App.8
