Epson's new printers ease refill woes with ink tanks

We've all been there. It's late, and you have a final project or presentation due first thing in the morning. You've been awake for days and you've finally finished. Only when you go to print, there's no ink. Epson's latest printers offer a simple solution that should go a long way to remedying the issue: they hold more ink. The company's line of EcoTank all-in-one printers house so-called Supertanks instead of individual cartridges that are refilled with bottles of ink. What's more, each of the five models has a reservoir that holds the equivalent of around 20 sets of traditional cartridges (depending on the model, of course) and two support WiFi printing via a mobile device.

Even the most affordable options, the Epson Expression ET-2500 EcoTank and Expression ET-2550 EcoTank, can print up to 4,000 black and white pages and 6,500 color pages before needing a refill. When the time comes, those refill bottles will set you back as little as $13 each or $52 for a complete set. We'd surmise the refills for the larger machines cost a bit more. The EcoTank line is due to arrive in September, with prices ranging from $379 (the ET-2500) on up to $1,199 for the heavy-duty business model (WorkForce Pro WF-R4640 EcoTank).
