Epson Workforce ET-4550 review

 

More ink than you'll probably ever need

Two years worth of ink ; Decent print quality ; Affordable price

Too wide ; Awful print speeds ; Lengthy setup

If your main concern is keeping costs down, the ET-4550 might be the ideal printer for you. But if you have any other needs, you're better off looking elsewhere.

Epson EcoTank ET-4550 review

 

The ET-4550 is eye-wateringly expensive for a simple inkjet MFP, but low ink costs could make up for it

Even so, we've two reservations about recommending the ET-4550 to those looking for long-term low ink costs. While Epson's reliability is good, a failure outside this MFP's one-year warranty could leave you with lots of unusable ink before you've...

Epson EcoTank ET-4550 review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Epson EcoTank ET-4550 all-in-one inkjet printer is pricey, but includes so much ink in the box that you won't need to pay out for ink again for years. This particular EcoTank machine is feature packed, with wi-fi, automatic double-sided printing...

Epson Workforce ET-4550 review

 

Low running costs, but a high asking price for Epson's top-end Eco Tank printer

Excellent economy for heavy ink users ; Good quality output

Slow print speeds ; Topping up ink tanks is a messy process

Epson WorkForce ET-4550 EcoTank All-in-One Printer

 

The Epson WorkForce ET-4550 EcoTank All-in-One Printer costs a lot for a personal multifunction printer (MFP), but it comes with all the ink most users will ever need.

Bottles of ink and large ink tanks dramatically lower the cost of printing. Ships with enough ink to print 11,000 monochrome pages or 8,500 color pages. Prints, faxes, scans, and copies. Automatic document feeder. Ethernet, Wi-Fi, Wi-Fi Direct.

Paper capacity is suitable for personal or light-duty shared use only.

Conclusion Certainly the strongest argument for the ET-4550 is its low ink cost. But by turning the marketing paradigm of low-price printers with high ink costs on its head, Epson has also introduced a bit of sticker shock for the printer itself.

Epson EcoTank ET-4550 Review: The Future Of Printing Has Arrived

 

It's Sunday night. You're halfway through a 10-page presentation that's due first thing Monday and you get the dreaded “out of ink” message. And no, you don't have a backup cartridge.

Great Printer

 

Having used a HP printer for several years I found I was having to spend nearly £70 every couple of months in ink. I bought this printer as it comes with 2 years supply thus saving me a huge amount of money. It was a bit fiddly to fill the tanks with...
