I was recently sent an Epson ET3600 EcoTank printer to review. As you can imagine I couldn’t wait to unpack it and start using it!
One of my pet hates has always been the cost of ink cartridges. They always seem very expensive and they usually didn’t last very long, especially when you have children in high school who need things printing off all the time! In fact, one time I went along to buy ink cartridges and they had a printer that was cheaper to buy and included ink cartridges, than just buying the ink cartridges alone! How does that even make sense?!
The Epson ET3600 EcoTank is the first time that a maker of printers has come up with something that is true value for money.
This particular printer says goodbye to cartridges! Hooray! It comes with two full sets of ink which are capable of printing 11,000 pages, so for the average user of a printer that is going to last a long time!
The great thing about this printer is that it’s wi-fi, has wi-fi direct and it also has an ethernet connection, which of course allows you to print from your phone, cloud and laptop.
It also has high speed, double sided, business quality printing and the integrated high capacity ink tanks keep the cost ultra low per page.
Here is some of technical data on the Epson ET3600 Ecotank printer for those of you who like to delve a little deeper into the specifics!
ISO Print speed (black/colour) 13.7/7.3 ISO ppm
Two sided ISO Print speed (black/colour) 6.5/4.5 ISO ppm
Scan Resolution up to 1200 dpi
Print Resolution up to 4800×1200 dpi
LCD screen 2.2 inches 5.6 cm
The paper is held in a hidden tray and this holds 150 pages.
Finally setting up the printer was very easy. You are guided throughout the process by the written instructions, but also by the LED screen which helps guide you onto the next step. If you watch the video below you will be able to see me setting up the Epson ET3600 Ecotank printer.
