Working from home and having a pretty busy life means needing as many things as possible to keep us organised. Erin has started nursery now and we sometimes get emailed calendar dates and school activities that will be happening soon and I really like to have these things printed out for both me and John. To make our lives a bit easier we were recently sent the Epson EcoTank ET-7750 printer.
Now, until recently I didn’t know what an EcoTank was so many other people might not either. Unlike a regular printer, the EcoTank works with a different ink system. Instead of using traditional ink cartridges the Epson EcoTank ET-7750 is filled with bottles of ink. In the box you get enough ink to last you roughly 3 years (depending on what you print of course). I am terrible at either remembering to buy ink, or going to print something with it having already run out! The ink tanks can be seen right at the front of the printer so you can easily see when you need to top up.
Setting up the printer took a matter of minutes. I have a Mac which doesn’t have a disc drive, although the printer does come with one. I was able to set up everything near enough from my Mac, apart from having to put in my WiFi password to connect the two. The screen on the printer is really quite large and so are the buttons so everything is really clear to see and easy to use.
For me, wireless printing is a massive deal. The Epson EcoTank ET-7750 is a large machine and it takes up a fair bit of space. So that I don’t have to give up my photography space on my desk, I have had to put our printer in one of the alcoves in the living room. My office is the other side of the room but as long as I have the paper tray out, I can print without moving. The printer also lets me print from my phone if I want to using Epson Connect! I love that I can print something while I’m out and about and on the go so I don’t forget to do it when I get home.
Not only does the Epson EcoTank ET-7750 have wireless printing but there is a slot for a memory card and also a USB drive. These options are fantastic if you want to use your printer for photo printing!
Sometimes when working from home I need a printer to do more than just that. The Epson EcoTank ET-7750 is also a scanner and a copier. It’s one thing me needing a printer for certain things but it’s also super handy for Erin. I find that a lot of colouring books are too complicated for her most of the time so being able to print out sheets for her to colour in is fantastic. Also, if we find a colouring book with really good pictures for her then I can quite easily copy them with the Epson EcoTank ET-7750.
Now, the Epson EcoTank ET-7750 is big and it is expensive. However, if, like me, you work from home or have your own business then this is a great investment. The replacement ink is much better value than buying cartridges and when you do finally need to replace it, it will last you a hell of a long time.
You can buy the Epson EcoTank ET-7750 on Amazon.
Now, our printer will last us a very long time without getting too outdated or costing us a fortune in ink!
