Epson EcoTank ET-2720 is a part of EcoTank variants produced by Epson not only to save up printing ink but also to encourage customers to be environmentally-conscious for their surroundings. Instead of using ink cartridges, the printer uses (refillable) ink reservoirs. You only need to refill them when the ink runs out – saving you the trouble of having to buy cartridges, which you will dispose of later on. Of course, there are some extra features and great perks to expect from this variant, so read on!
We are talking about a single that can perform multiple tasks at once. You can print, scan, and copy with this device. It saves you a lot of money not only from the purchase but also for the operational cost. The ability to enjoy several perks from a single device is definitely helpful, especially if you have a business – and you depend on it. And the multifunctional ability isn’t the only handy feature most users like because there is still more to expect from this device.
This Epson EcoTank ET-2720 supports wireless printing, which means that you don’t need to use any wire or cable to connect your computer (or laptop or tablet, etc) to the printer. Just turn the WiFi on and you can enjoy instant printing ability with your smartphone, Android tablets, iPhone, or iPad. Wireless printing will also make printing job easier, especially if you have a busy business that requires you to use the printer all day long.
One of the coolest things about this printer is the ink function and management. It uses refill inks instead of the cartridges. Not only this would save a lot of money for the operation, but it also saves the environment from cartridges pile up. You only need to refill a set of ink instead of buying the inks whose cost is almost similar to buying a new printer. And the ink can last longer too – well, at least that’s what Epson claims. But in the overall quality, having this type of refillable ink will save you a fortune.
Will it compromise the quality of printing? Not at all. You can still expect a high-quality result, whether you are printing, making copies, or scanning. Naturally, don’t expect it to be absolutely marvelous. The black and white are pretty standard. The color is quite good although not overly sharp. However, the quality is impressive enough for the average business-standard.
The overall speed for this printer is quite good. It’s not amazing, but still pretty good. It isn’t too slow and yet it isn’t too fast either. You won’t have to wait long to get all of your documents done. The printer can do around 10 ppm in black and white, and around 5 ppm in color. Yes, you can still print color without having to wait too long.
The printer has a pretty simple and straightforward design. It is quite compact, perfect for families with tons of schoolwork or a small business without too much space. It implements the top paper loading style for easier operation. Although you don’t have to provide a lot of space, make sure that the paper can slide in and go through easily and smoothly. If it is too cramped or limited, you may have to deal with paper jam.
The downside with this Epson EcoTank ET-2720 is the constant need of doing the paper alignment. Make sure to do it during the installation process. Simply follow the directions, and you are good to go. If you skip this, don’t be too surprised if you often encounter white lines during the printing.
The Good and Bad
The things to like about this printer are the inexpensive operational cost as well as the easy management to run everything. The design and the size are quite nice too – you can enjoy a compact arrangement without sacrificing too much space. Printing quality is relatively good although it isn’t amazing.
However, there are several extra efforts that you need to make, such as the paper alignment method. You will have to work on the printer placement to avoid paper jam. But if you are looking for a multifunctional device that can deliver more than the standard results, this Epson EcoTank ET-2720 is quite impressive.
