If you’re currently in the market for a new printer and are becoming sceptical of reduced running cost claims then be ready to welcome the new EcoTank range with open arms. Proven cost reductions and an innovative hassle-free ink system could see these inkjet printers revolutionise the way you print.

The EcoTank range

The innovative EcoTank range promises to minimise costs and reduce the hassle of traditional ink cartridges. While many printers may claim to reduce lifetime running costs, an EcoTank printer will deliver savings you can really see day after day.

This is all thanks to a unique ink system that uses refillable ink tanks and high-volume ink bottles. The ink bottles last much longer than normal ink cartridges and the system is easy to use – simply lift the lid and begin refilling your ink as necessary. This system is both time and cost saving, making it ideal for both home use and busy offices.

Reduced costs

The EcoTank range offers savings you can really measure. These affordable printers come supplied with two years’ worth of ink out of the box1, with ink bottles equivalent to 84 ink cartridges and capable of printing up to 11,0002 pages in black and colour. These longer lasting ink bottles result in a considerably low cost of just a fraction of a penny per page3 and ultimately deliver savings of up to 74%4 compared to other leading printers. Plus, when you do eventually run out of ink, these bottles come at a surprisingly affordable price.

Hassle free

Whether it’s remembering and trying to find the time to restock, or struggling to remove and replace with new ones, we’ve all experienced the hassle of ink cartridges. If you’ve also suffered this inconvenience, then the EcoTank range is the perfect solution. The new revolutionary design means the ink tanks are easy to access and even easier to refill from the bottles. Additionally, with the new long lasting high-volume inks, you’ll never run out at the last minute. With ink supplied continuously to the printer there’s no unexpected emergencies or quick trips to the shops; simply restock when you’re running low and get peace of mind for the next two years.
