Epson 3-1 Inkjet ET-3600 EcoTank Printer

I can't begin to tell you how excited I was to test out the cool Epson ET-3600 EcoTank Wi-Fi printer, the Epson printer 3-1 inkjet printer can not to only print, but it can also copy and scan.

The main feature for is that the Epson EcoTank ET-3600 Inkjet printer is cartridge free. In the past I have had lots of difficulties getting hold of specific ink cartridges, so to remove this difficulty from the off is huge for me. in the past I have had lots of issues getting hold of specific ink cartridges, so to finally have the ability to use bottled ink was great. Inside the box, you get X2 sets of ink (Coloured & Black) which is recommended to last around 11,000 pages in black and 11,000 pages in colour, so this really awesome as I don't think I'll be actually needing to purchase any ink for a very long time.

I was really delighted with how simple the setup process was, after putting the ink into the ink tanks, we had to wait for the printer to initialize which took around 20 minutes, and then we were then ready to go. I've always wanted a WiFi printer so I couldn't wait to put it to the test.

I installed the Epson software CD on my laptop which was really straight forward, during the installation setup I had the option to choose from a few software installation options eg Scan and Easy Photo Print. I opted to install all of the software programs  as I know I'd generally use them all, but it was great that I was given the choice. Epson also has a free downloadable iPrint app, which allows you to print directly from your smart device.

We tend to use a printer quite a lot, especially with the kid's homework and my work, so it's really important that we have a reliable printer, I love that the Eco Tank manages the effectiveness of the ink as you can select to use either the black ink or coloured ink, the printer also prints double sided which is a fantastic feature and will save on paper usage. This is by far the best printer I have ever owned, its perfect for our family's printing needs, and the kids are loving the ease and accessibility.

This is by far the best printer we have ever owned,The price point for this model is £399.00 but considering the amount of money that I will save on ink and paper, makes this printer the perfect choice. Epson  ET-3600 EcoTank is available to purchase from Epson and Amazon.
