Epson ET-2500 Printer Review

Saturday, 6 February 2016
Hello everyone! Today I'm going to be reviewing the Epson ET-2500 Printer* which I've been testing out over the last few weeks. The printer is part of their EcoTank range which uses refillable ink bottles. So there's no need for new printer cartridges which is not only cheaper but more eco friendly. With our family printer at home it feels like we are never done buying new ink! The printer comes with bottles of black, blue, pink and yellow which are supposed to last for two years worth of printing for home or small office use. The printer can also photocopy function but I've not been able to make it print double sided so I don't think it does at all. I've gotten used to the printers in the library doing this so it is something I've missed. 

The printer was really easy to set up. The instructions on how to fill the ink were very clear. I did spill a little ink on myself and it does stain but cleared in a few days with a good scrub. I had a little trouble connecting my laptop to the printer via wifi but after retrying it a few times it set up easily and is now good to go. My only real issue if that the cable that attaches into the back of the printer is really loose and it's hard to insert it into the printer and then move the printer afterwards without it dislodging. But once you have a printer set up in place you aren't really moving it anyway. Obviously as I've only had this printer for a few weeks I can't comment on the claim that the ink will last for two years. But so far so good. I'm really impressed with the print quality when you consider that this printer is designed for low cost per page printing.

This isn't exactly a student budget printer at around £200 but it is very reassuring to know that I'll almost have finished my fourth year of university before I have to start worrying about it running out! So far, I'm really happy with this printer and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to invest in a good printer.
