Filling the epson tanks

Once you're set up it works like a dream. After the initial investment of time and money you're business or home is going reap big rewards. Here are my top three reasons to switch: Fun, Frugal, Forget-about-it.

Fun: First, there's the fun of printing photos, artwork and projects in vibrant four color. I used to hoard my color--opting for greyscale. But folks, it's not a black and white world, color is what makes everything more fun!

Frugal: Then there's the savings. Thought the initial unit costs more than other printers in the category, over time you will save big on ink. The WorkForce ET-4550 EcoTank comes with in tanks that are the equivalent to about 50 ink cartridge sets.

Forget-about-it: Set it up and then-Go! It's likely you won't mess with ink for 2 years! The WorkForce ET-4550 EcoTank comes with enough ink to print up to 11,000 black or 8500 color pages.
