Review: Epson EcoTank ET-15000 all-in-one printer-Cartridge-Free Supertank Printer

Ideal for small offices. The Epson EcoTank ET-15000 printer has remarkably high performance in black and high color page yield . You won’t have to worry about refilling your ink tanks regularly, even if you print out many pages every day. It has a seed scanner, but it does not support two-sided scanning. Print black-and-white documents fast enough, but it’s slower with color pages.

Print for up to 2 years with each included or replacement ink bottle set — each replacement set includes enough ink to print up to 6,000 pages. That’s equivalent to about 80 individual cartridges. And, there’s zero cartridge waste.

The Epson EcoTank ET-15000 is a great inkjet printer in general that has an incredible ink tank system. It has a remarkably high color and black page performance, so you don’t need to fill the ink tanks for a while, and even when you do, replacement bottles are cheap. It works similarly to other Epson EcoTank printers and can be printed on tabloid-sized paper. It is well built and has front and rear inboxes with adjustable sliders for different paper sizes. Unfortunately, it has a disappointing color accuracy, so it is not the best choice if you need precise colors. It has a flat scanner and foil, but does not support duplex scanning, so you need to manually flip the duplex documents during the scan.Epson EcoTank ET-15000 Printer

The Epson EcoTank ET-15000 is great for students. Its page performance is remarkably high, so you won’t have to worry about buying new bottles of ink for a while. It has a flat scanner and foil, which makes it easy to scan your textbooks or course packs. It doesn’t have Bluetooth support, but you can still connect over Wi-Fi.
Excellent for black-and-white printing. The Epson EcoTank ET-15000 has incredibly high performance on the black page and, combined with the ink bottle cost, printing is affordable over time. Print black and white pages fast enough. Print two-sided pages, but unfortunately the sheet scanner is not able to scan two-sided documents.Epson EcoTank ET-15000 Printer

The Epson ET-15000 has a very good build quality. The plastic body feels solid, it is easy to see the ink levels and the power cord is removable in case you need to replace it. The scanner cover remains alone, but it doesn’t rise high enough to place thicker objects like books. It is necessary to lift the scanner glass to fill the tanks with ink, which is not very convenient. Unfortunately, the output tray somehow you when you need to put the paper in the inbox, and you need to properly align the paper in the inbox; otherwise, the printer will not detect it.

Good print speed. Epson ET-15000 prints black-and-white pages pretty quickly, but is slower with color documents. Unfortunately, it takes a long time to print a photo. Your inbox contains many pages, while the automatic document feeder can contain up to 35 pages, and your back inbox can contain up to 20 pages.Photo:Epson
