When’s the last time you purchased a printer? Were you as surprised as I was by how inexpensive they’ve become? Here’s the thing, though: the printers themselves are inexpensive, but when purchasing ink cartridges, you’ll learn that great deal wasn’t so great. That’s why I’m so intrigued by the Epson Expression ET-3600 EcoTank All-in-One Supertank Printer.
Instead of using expensive ink cartridges, the Epson Expression ET-3600 EcoTank is cartridge-free — it has easy to fill ink tanks, and it comes with enough ink in the tank to last for up to two years. Whaaaat?
Inside the box, you’ll find the Epson Expression ET-3600, a power cable, eight bottles of ink (four initial bottles and four refill bottles), a software disk, and a Quick Guide, information on who to call if you have issues, and a Start Here pamphlet.
The ET-3600 measures approximately 20″ wide by 8″ tall (with the scanner lid closed) by 14″ (all measurements taken at the widest points). The ET-3600 is able to print, scan, copy, and it can be used wirelessly or while connected with an ethernet cable. The one thing it doesn’t have is fax capabilities; if you want those, you might want to look at the Epson ET-4500.
The Epson Expression ET-3600 is fairly compact …
… but it is wider than some other printers I’ve reviewed because of the added tank area.
