The Epson EcoTank L355 and Epson EcoTank L555 printers are two teams that can mark a turning point in the Japanese company's offer for SMEs and freelancers. These are two inkjet multifunction printers capable of printing up to 6,500 pages in color and 4,000 pages in black, thanks to the use of high-capacity bottles. These bottles replace traditional cartridges and can be easily refilled.

These teams are available for prices of 330 euros for the Epson EcoTank L355 model and 500 euros for the Epson EcoTank L555 model . We tell you the details.
The first thing to keep in mind is that these are models designed for a regular but not very intensive printing. Proof of this are its maximum speeds of up to 9 pages per minute in black and white and 4.5 pages per minute in color, quite humble figures if we compare them with other printers in the same price range. But the great advantage of these printers is in the use of ink tanks , instead of the usual cartridges. This enables EcoTank machines to achieve a very high capacity of up to 6,500 color prints and 4,000 black and white prints.with every load. Once the deposit is finished, you can buy a bottle of Epson ink to recharge the equipment ( 25 euros for each bottle). According to the firm's data, this capacity is comparable to two years of use of a printer in the environment of an SME or small office, a time that will allow us to forget about the annoying task of having to buy consumables every little time.
In addition to printing capabilities, these models also have copy and scan functions . The more advanced Epson EcoTank L555 also includes the ability to send and receive faxes , a feature that is becoming less popular in the market but is still used by many businesses on a regular basis. The scanner with which these teams arrive has an optical resolution of 1,200 dpi. Additionally, a 30-page automatic document feeder is integrated into the EcoTank L555 for easy use of the copier and scanner . Another advantage of this equipment is a two-line LCD screento facilitate the use of the different functions of the device, while the L355 uses several buttons to operate these features.
In both cases, we have WiFi connectivity to be able to install the printer in any corner of the office and not worry about the cable (we can also connect them through Ethernet ). In addition, through the Epson iPrint app you can perform remote printing from smartphones and tablets. The Epson EcoTank L355 printer is available for 330 euros, while the more advanced equipment Epson EcoTank L555 hits the market for a price of 500 euros.
