Users Can Print with Confidence with Five New EcoTank Pro Models that Offer Up to 80 Percent Savings on Replacement Ink vs. Standard Laser Toner Cartridges1and Two Years of Unlimited Ink2
Epson America, Inc., pioneer and North America market leader of the Supertank printer category, owning almost 95 percent of the market share,3 announced five new EcoTank® Pro cartridge-free printers. A breakthrough for the Supertank category, these high speed, heavy-duty models are designed to provide worry-free, cost-effective printing to small businesses, home offices and workgroups. The new EcoTank Pro Series offers business savings up to 80 percent with low-cost replacement ink bottles vs. standard capacity color laser toner cartridges1 and leverages Epson PrecisionCore Heat-Free Technology™ to deliver fast, consistent, heavy-duty performance and print-shop-quality output. In addition, Epson also expanded the current EcoTank portfolio with the announcement of the EcoTank ET-15000 all-in-one, designed for SOHO printing up to 13” x 19”.
Epson partnered with Shaquille O’Neal, NBA Hall of Famer, business leader and philanthropist, in 2019 encouraging people to “Just Fill and Chill” with Epson’s EcoTank printers featuring zero cartridge waste, which includes the new EcoTank Pro Series and EcoTank ET-15000. EcoTank Pro wireless all-in-one printers offer fast cartridge-free printing with easy-to-fill supersized ink tanks producing ultra-low cost per page at about 2 cents per color ISO page compared to 14 cents with standard-sized color laser toner cartridges,1 ideal for businesses pursuing low-cost replacement ink options. Despite producing unparalleled output at speeds up to 25 ISO ppm black† with no warmup time for fast first page out, the EcoTank Pro Series has low energy consumption. Epson DURABrite® pigment ink delivers professional-quality output and vibrant borderless prints. Additional features include two 250-sheet4 front paper trays and rear specialty-paper feed, plus a large 4.3-inch color touchscreen and hands-free voice-activated printing.5
“Supertank printer adoption is growing rapidly worldwide; in 2019, nearly one out of every three inkjet printers shipped was a Supertank.6 This new fleet of Pro performers will accelerate that growth,” said Nils Madden, director, Consumer Marketing, Epson America. “PrecisionCore Heat-Free Technology is optimal for office printing and we are looking to further disrupt the industry, demonstrating that cartridge-free EcoTank Pro Series printers are cost-effective and offer fast, reliable professional-quality color prints. While these robust machines are designed for heavy-duty performance, the EcoTank Pro printers are also a great solution for high-volume production now being done at home.”
To further support the printing needs of businesses, Epson is introducing an Unlimited Ink for Two Years Program2 with EcoTank Pro models. Customers who purchase and register an EcoTank Pro Series printer are eligible to receive reimbursement for replacement ink bottles.2

1 Actual savings and costs will vary considerably based on print tasks, print volumes and usage conditions. Savings and cost per ISO page are based on the cost of replacement ink bottles and the cost of enough standard-capacity color laser toner cartridges to achieve the total page yields of the ink bottles using the manufacturers’ online prices and yields for the best-selling similarly featured color laser printers, available at retail, priced at $999 or less (USD) with speeds of 40 ppm or less per industry-available data as of July 2019. Savings of up to $600 (USD) and cost per ISO page of about $0.09 (USD) for XL-capacity color laser toner cartridges based on the same methodology.
