Epson has announced the launch of its L220 and L365 Ecotank inkjet printers in Colombia, designed for the small office and consumer environment. Like other Ecotank printers, the print system is based on discrete CMYK ink tanks and permanent print heads, eliminating the reliance on inkjet cartridges. This results in many more pages printed between refills, and refill ink costing a small fraction of what cartridges typically cost for comparable printers.
The Epson Ecotank L220 & L365 models integrate Epson’s Ecotank system, which uses ink tanks instead of cartridges, drastically reducing the printer’s Lifetime TCO (Total Cost of Ownership)
“Economy and tranquility; those are our promises with EcoTank, because users of the L220 and L365, for example, can print all they want without worrying about the cost,” said Epson Latin America’s Vice President for Video Projectors, José Luis Rodriguez. “Thanks to this technology, printers are equipped with high-capacity ink tanks that the user can replenish whenever needed, with Epson ink. If we consider that each bottle of ink equals 30 conventional cartridges, the economy is incomparable.”
The multifunction and the wireless
The EcoTank L220 prints, copies and scans documents, web pages, and photos. It comes equipped with four 70 milliliter ink bottles able to print an estimated 4,000 black & white pages or 6,500 color pages.
“Our L220 is recommended for homes, but also small offices. It prints quickly…and has a 48 bit scanner with 600x1200dpi resolution for enlarging photos and documents,” said Rodriguez.
The accompanying L365 (pictured above) has similar features, with the addition of Wi-Fi and Epson’s iPrint app, which enables printing from a smartphone or tablet. “Even faster than the L220, and with a 48 bit 1200×2400 dpi scanner, the L365 adds flexibility and mobility to the multifunction platform,” clarified Rodriguez.
