Epson's EcoTank bottle-refillable inkjet printers have been slow to catch on in the US. That's unsurprising given that the US seems a lot more upfront-price sensitive than some other regions, and these don't appear when you search for "printers under $100." Even rolling out an ad campaign featuring Shaquille O'Neal only managed to help eat a slim percentage from HP's market share overall. It's too bad, because while purchase prices can be hard to swallow, a solution like the EcoTank is probably a lot more cost-effective in the long run. But one group of folks who might be swayed by that calculation are small- and medium-size business and the growing number of work-at-homers; Epson's targeting them with its new lineup of EcoTank Pro all-in-one printers and a new 13x19 model in its base EcoTank line.

Epson's printers are expensive up front, but save you money post-purchase with their high-capacity ink refill system.

As is usual with printers, the EcoTank Pro models, which range in price from $799 for the ET-5800 to $1,129 for the ET-16650, differ from the not-Pro models by their 500-sheet paper capacity, faster speeds, higher duty cycles (the volume of pages a printer is designed to comfortably print) and Wi-Fi support (2.4GHz only vs. 2.4GHz/5GHz for the Pro models) among other features. One thing that doesn't differ is the rated yield from a bottle of ink: 7,500 for the black bottle and 6,000 for each of the yellow, cyan and magenta inks.

3D Printers Are Finally Starting to Work More Like Star Trek's Replicators

  3D Printers Are Finally Starting to Work More Like Star Trek's Replicators Transporters? Spaceships that can travel at the speed of light? Star Trek introduced us to many fantastical technologies that have us looking forward to the 23rd century. But we might not have to wait that long for all the tech Captain Kirk had to play with, as 3D printing has taken another big step toward making replicators a reality. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.

Epson says the cost per page for both color and monochrome prints is about 2 cents. And as a launch deal through March 31, Epson is offering unlimited ink for 2 years (up to 542 bottles, plus some other stipulations). All of these are the first models to use Epson's DuraBrite pigment-based inks.

At the top of that lineup are two 13x19-inch printers, the ET-16000 and ET-16650. Epson's also adding the ET-15000 to its SOHO EcoTank line, a 13x19 for $599. My only quibble with those is that the larger pages feed through the rear rather top or front, which means you need a lot more clearance there than I can ever make room for.
