Few devices slurp more money out of your pocket than printers. They’re notoriously expensive, thanks to the sky-high cost of ink cartridge replacements. Not only do they burn a hole in your pocket, but they also run out far too quickly.
That’s why Kim uses cartridge-free printers. The ink lasts much longer, and she doesn’t have to wrestle with cartridges. One perfect example is Epson’s impressive line of cartridge-free printers, our sponsor.
Epson’s EcoTank printers provide up to two years’ worth of ink in just one load. That’s 7,500 pages in black and white or 6,000 pages in color. Once you make the switch, you can kiss expensive cartridges goodbye.
Even better, EcoTank updated six printers so they’re better than ever before
When you’re printing pages for work or school, you want everything to be as efficient as possible. You don’t want to worry about connectivity or anything like that. EcoTank printers can connect to your phone and your smart assistant, so you could call out, “Alexa, print this for me” without touching a single button.
Epson wants to make your life even easier with seven new EcoTank models. They’re similar to previous versions, although they come with helpful new features. Here are the six models that have been updated, along with the more recent versions:
- ET-4700 → ET-4800
- ET-3760 → ET-3850
- ET-4760 → ET-4850
- ET-2720 → ET-2800
- ET-2760 → ET-2850
- ET-3710 → ET-3830
Considering an upgrade? Here are three updates you can take advantage of:
This easy app is a mobile command center for your wireless printer. You can monitor and operate your product all from your mobile device.
Its auto-configuration and customization features make work easy for you. You can even get supplies or help from the app. It’s a great way to print from your phone if you don’t want to log into your computer.
2. All the printers come equipped with Epson ScanSmart Software
This software lets you easily scan, edit and share documents. For example, once you have scanned, you can preview and edit your files. This lets you rotate pages, along with delete, reorder or remove them.
Not only that, but you can easily save and share files. Uploading them to the cloud allows for easy access and sharing. You can even turn them into easy-to-edit documents that are compatible with Microsoft Office.
Each of the updated models comes with Epson ScanSmart software, so you can scan and print more efficiently than ever before.
3. Right-angled power cords let you push the printer right up against a wall
This is a great design choice because you can push your printer right up against a wall. Typically, you have an awkward gap that papers always seem to fall through. Now you can maximize your space and minimize chunky clutter by pushing your printer out of the way.
There are a few other updates, too. For instance, the ET-2850 has no memory card slot, but the ET-2760 does. You can get huge 250-sheet paper input trays with the ET-3830 and ET-3850, too. Here are all of the updates you can look forward to:

Make the switch today
Having a printer is so convenient. You can print coupons, the kids’ homework and essential documents for work, all from the comfort of your home. The downside? Expensive ink cartridges — unless you purchase an Epson EcoTank printer. They come with a ridiculous amount of ink right in the box — enough to print a whopping 6,000 color pages.
