Info on EcoTank Line at Epson Site [epson.com]
FYI, Epson's EcoTank printers are large capacity refilliable ink printers, with per page cost falling below Laser printer (even with high upfront cost).
OEM Ink Cost (T-502)
Black 127mL refill is $20 and is rated for 7500pages, while color is ~ $40 (3 x $13, rated for 6000 color pages). That works out to 0.26 cents for BW and 0.67 cents for color.
Both these models come with 2 sets of CMYK ink refills - pushing the overall page capacity to 14,000 BW and 11,200 Color. So even at an initial investment $250, it works out to 1c/page
[Calculation $250/(14000+11200) ~ 1c]. Much less than laser.
Now compare this to HP Instant Ink program [hpconnected.com]
, where even at highest $10/mo level, the per page cost is 3.3c.
