Epson launches Next-Generation Home printers

To say Epson has smashed sales of large, continuous ink tank printers into orbit is an understatement. The company, having now sold over 60 million EcoTank printers globally, is officially the number 1 ink tank printer vendor worldwide and occupies over 62% of large ink tank printer sales globally – that’s 45% more than any other printer manufacturer. To celebrate these milestones the company has released the next generation in its EcoTank range for the Home and Home Office. Critically, none of the new models uses any ink cartridges at all, replacement ink bottles that provide thousands more printed pages start at just $17.99 and all models come with the new, intuitive and clever Epson SmartPanel app.

An innovative interface, the Epson Smart Panel app transforms iOS or Android mobile devices into an intuitive control centre for select Epson printers and scanners.

This powerful tool makes it incredibly easy to set up, monitor, print, scan and more using your Epson product, right from your hand-held device. With quick-configuration features, it offers easy product setup on your wireless network and automatically detects the Epson product you are using.

You can customise the SmartPanel to your own preferences and requirements as it’s been built to offer everything you need including easily accessing troubleshooting tips in one convenient app.

Very clever. Very useful. Very Smart. So what’s so special about the new EcoTank Home printers?

The new EcoTank Home printers launch today (with the Home Office models to follow shortly) and consist of the new ET-1810, ET-2810, ET-2820 and ET-2850 models. These new models are specifically targeted and priced at entry-level and budget-conscious homes, are ideal for families and in particular homeschooling. They also include WiFi for easy connectivity.

To say recent times have been challenging would be another great understatement. That said, one thing that’s become apparent is how the home has become the “everything” place as many have adapted to hybrid work and school environments and having a reliable printer that can meet those new demands has become an absolute necessity. From printing important presentations to endless school assignments and entertainment, families are increasingly dependent on performance printing technology to streamline workflows and stay productive.

Epson’s new EcoTank range uses innovative, heat-free, cartridge-free printing technology which delivers value and convenience for the ideal home printing experience. 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 and each “low-cost” replacement ink set for the new EcoTank printers is equivalent to about 145 individual ink cartridges – and enough ink to literally print many thousands more pages. The new EcoTank Home printers include thousands of pages worth of ink straight out of the box and with every replacement ink set for fewer out of ink frustrations, all new models utilise EcoFit ink bottles for easy, mess-free and worry-free filling.
