epson_printerIf there’s one thing we dislike about inkjet printers is the need to constantly buy new ink cartridges. This can be a costly process especially if you print a lot, but sometimes you just cannot help it. This sometimes results in users trying to micromanage their ink by only choosing important documents to print in color.

However Epson has a solution for you in the form of the EcoTank. This is the latest printer from the company which will apparently be able to last you years on a single cartridge before requiring you to refill it. Sounds good, doesn’t it? The only downside is that you will need to deal with a large tank of ink meaning that it might not be ideal for small home offices.

It will also cost a lot more than regular printers, but the idea is that you will save in the long run due to the fact that you won’t need to change ink cartridges every month. The price of the printers will run as low as $379 for the basic model and will go up to $1,199 for professionals who might need additional features and functions.

According to the company, the basic models will be able to print as many as 4,000 pages with black ink, and a whopping 6,500 color pages and like we said, it should be good for the next two years unless you’re a super heavy duty user. The ink itself is relatively affordable at $12.99 per bottle or $59 for a set. So, any takers?
