I have been obsessed with photography from a very young age, ever since my Mum bought me my first ever camera so over my years I couldn’t even begin to guess how many photographs I have taken. When you consider on an average family holiday I can easily take upwards of 1500 in just one week I think you get the picture?!
I tend to print most of my pictures at home to display around the house and then use online services to make photo books of the rest as keepsakes or gifts.
My last printer died just before Christmas, it was an Epson SX400 which I’d had for a number of years and whilst I was very happy with the print quality I wasn’t happy with rate at which I had to replace the cartridges which cost an arm and a leg. There was also the problem that I didn’t print often so the printheads would dry out and each time I started it up I would have to run through head cleaning and nozzle checks wasting valuable ink.
Well now I have been sent an Epson EcoTank ET2550 to review and so far I am impressed. The Epson ET2550 is a wireless printer with scanner included. I can print from my laptop, tablet or mobile phone from anywhere in the house – this has been a priceless feature for our house. The Epson EcoTank doesn’t have cartridges, it has a ‘tank’ on the side of the printer which holds four containers for your ink. The ink in the Eco Tank will supposedly last me up to 2 years (depending on my printing habits). Epson claim 4,000 pages with black ink and 6,500 pages with coloured ink. Now I like this idea A LOT! When the ink runs out you simply buy replacement bottles to top up the tanks.
