Printer review: All-in-One, Cartridge-Free Epson ET-4760 with four separate ink tanks

The Epson EcoTank ET-4760 is a very good printer in general. Instead of using traditional disposable ink cartridges to replace once empty, you have four separate ink tanks. It has exceptionally high printing performance, so you don’t need to recharge your tanks very often. Replacement ink bottles are not too expensive, which makes this printer very convenient. It also prints faster than most of the inkjet printers we tested. It has a flat scanner with an automatic document feeder (ADF), but does not scan duplex. It is also not the best in photographic printing and has difficulty reproducing colors accurately even when printing documents. Considering all things, it’s a versatile and complete printer that’s suitable for most uses.Epson EcoTank ET-4760 Printer

The Epson EcoTank ET-4760 is a large home printer or small office. Print a vastly large number of pages in an ink-filled tank, so you don’t have to worry about the workday being interrupted by empty ink cartridges. It also has a sheet scanner with an automatic document feeder (ADF) so you can scan multiple documents at the same time. However, it does not scan two sides and the printing speed can be a bit slow for a busy office.

The Epson EcoTank ET-4760 is a good family printer. Its cost-printing ratio is excellent and prints a large number of copies before having to fill the ink tanks. It has a lot of scanning features and a good mobile app as well. However, its photo print quality is only decent and has disappointing color accuracy when printing documents. If you almost always print things to use in the house, then this should not be a problem.Epson EcoTank ET-4760 PrinterThe Epson EcoTank ET-4760 is an perfect black-and-white printer. The super tank system contains a large amount of ink, resulting in remarkably high printing performance. Replacement bottles with black ink do not cost much, so the cost of printing only in black is exceptionally low. Although this printer still prints decently quickly, it’s not as fast as a monochrome laser printer. It’s also a little difficult to fill the tanks with ink. That said, it’s still a great printer if it prints only in black and white.

The Epson ET-4760 has an excellent super-tank ink system. Instead of using traditional disposable cartridges, you have four tanks of high-capacity ink to fill you with. They have a lot of ink and last a long time. Even if you’re printing very regularly, you won’t have to fill tanks often, let alone buy new bottles of ink.

While it is technically possible to fill the supertans with any third-party ink, we do not try it and we do not recommend to do so. Low-quality ink may damage print heads, and unlike standard inkjet printers, ink cannot be removed simply in case of problems. The use of third-party supplies can also cancel the warranty.
