Fall is here, so now is the perfect time to grab the tech you've been waiting for. Whether you're swooping up the last-minute deals of Back to School shopping, or jumping at the first opportunities to save while getting a head start on buying Christmas gifts, there are some essential items you really can't miss.
These three items are just what you need for your family this fall season.
1. Epson Ecotank Printer
Now that the kids and grandkids are back in school, one of the first things you'll need this fall is an efficient printer. Epson's new line of EcoTank SuperTank printers will help you save money as you print those homework assignments, art projects and research papers.
With yields of up to 11,000 black and white pages or 8,500 in color out of the box, Epson's EcoTank printers forego the use of the traditional inkjet cartridges by using their own refillable high capacity tanks. Compared to the mere 500 black and 450 color pages you get from even the high capacity inkjet cartridges, this is an extremely significant improvement.
Replacement EcoTank ink sets are much cheaper, too. A complete EcoTank will set you back about $58 with yields of up to 6,500 pages. A complete color inkjet set for a comparable non-EcoTank printer will cost about $150 and that will only yield up to 2,300 pages. That's a whopping 80 percent savings compared to traditional inkjet cartridges.
The initial cost of the Epson's EcoTank line of printers may be a bit steeper than conventional inkjet printers but they more than make up for it in the long run. Epson estimates that with the initial ink that comes with EcoTank printers, an average user won't need replacement ink for two years!
Epson's EcoTank lineup currently has two home all-in-one models (ET-2500 and the ET-2555 with an added 1.44-inch LCD screen), two for business printing (ET-4500 and the ET-4550) and one for high volume, heavy-duty business printing (WF-R4640).
