Epson's new 'EcoTank' printers sound great, but ...

Bill Snyder | Aug. 7, 2015
By now, you know that many printer manufacturers sell you cheap printers and then make you buy expensive ink cartridges, right? So at first glance, Epson's recent announcement that it will soon sell printers with refillable ink wells seems like a great, money-saving idea. Not so fast.

Here's some advice: When the printers debut later this year, keep an eye out for real reviews by reputable tech or business publications, and see what Epson actually delivers.

I'm skeptical, obviously, but I really hope Epson hits a home run. The give-away-the-razor, get-rich-selling-the blade model of home printing is obnoxious, and it's about time a major manufacturer challenges it.
