This is more suited to high volume lower quality printing which is why I purchased it for my daughters uni work (no photos). If you want ecotank and cheaper printing costs if you have high volume then the Epson EcoTank ET-7700 is worth a look but it aint cheap. Which reviewed it and gave 77% but it seems to retail for over £450!!! Pros Very affordable ink costsPrints photos and spreadsheets wellWi-fiAirPrintAutomatic double-sided printingCons Text print quality could be betterCopier is a bit underwhelmingVery expensive
Are the printers with ink bottles cheaper to maintain compared to laser printer? I bought a colour laser printer years ago for £200. Third party replacement cartridges are cheap and I got the full set for around £40 which gives me a yields of around 5000 pages.
My point was more against Epson’s marketing than value of your deal. Many home users do scan a lot so an ADF Duplex Scan is a key feature. Many printers sub £100 have an ADF at least, be it manual to do double sided.
This ain't better than the rest of Inkjet printer all Inkjet do self cleaning so nothing special.....The only thing this make it special is the tank....but then you can get a system which added to your existing Inkjet from eBay....which sit next to your printer.....on eBay search 'Epson ciss' and to set up check YouTube.
I need a good quality printer for photo prints for my business. Would anyone recommend this?

Considered getting this Epson but ended up getting a HP instead as I can pick it up in the morning and comes with 12 month free ink: https://www.argos.co.uk/product/9199314 Probably not the best deal but I needed something ASAP.

Thanks I think I will give it a go,You would think things would be made easier to set up these days but it often seems to be a struggle
I've only just bought it and it comes with ink so can't comment on replacement ink. I've only printed a few pages on standard quality from my phone and they looked great. Still can't get the print via email feature to work, needs a bit of setting up i think

PERFECTION V39 Photo and document scanner £59.99 at Epson Shop£59.99£82.7928% off
Yeah I know, scanners are old-hat and few people want them nowadays, but I need a scanner for the rare times I need one. So, I came across this nice deal for a Perfection V39 direct from Ep…
When it's done its job, you can then sell it. There are always others in the same boat. You then have digitized photos done well and cheaply.
Not saying otherwise but... How many times will you be using it? Scanner sales have gone down and it will become increasingly difficult for them to sell esp at entry level. If you are digitising tons of photos are high res, then sure they make sense but for most people, a phone or the MFP will be more than enough. It's all about use cases. Once you will have digitised all your photos, it will be just another item on your desk that you won't need.
Standalone scanners might not make sense for you, but they obviously have a role to play for some folk, as evidenced here. I'll be buying one myself in a few months, have loads of shots to digitise.

Epson Expression Photo XP-8600 £79.99 delivered direct from Epson - and 14% TCB£79.99£89.9911% off
Seems the best price around for this printer, A4 all-in-one with CD/DVD Printer. As its a slightly older model there seem to be lower price compatible ink available than the current XP-x100 …
I think so! I looked at a trade manual and there are over 70 screws to remove along with countless ribbon cables - about 24 separate steps altogether. I'll have a go at most things but this is on a different level and well beyond me.
Yes that's a shame. My son looked at me funny when I said I wanted to fix mine. But have plenty of replacement cartridges to use up. Epson make great machines whatever model you have. To fix it I had to take apart but the videos on YouTube show it's only a few screwsand not to difficult but my model is very old. They may have mad e it more difficult now.
Sadly that's not the problem. I stupidly printed on the wrong side of some Avery label sheets (the plastic side). Ink smeared all over the surface and then the print heads started blocking up. I ran the nozzle cleaner twice but that only seemed to make matters worse and now all nozzles are blocked! I suspect the damper pad is saturated and clogged also. I can't use the traditional nozzle-cleaning tricks as it's one of the fixed-cartridge models (Epson Stylus Photo PX720WD) and to get to the print heads you have to dismantle the whole machine, which is fantastically complicated. It's a real shame as until then it was working perfectly and produced fantastic colour photo prints - it was pretty expensive as well. Seem as shame that such a small mistake means chucking a good machine out.
Is it the constant flashing lights as there's a reset for that. Just sorted mine. If it is try googling on YouTube. My Epson is easily 15 -20 years old. Choice stationary do brilliant replacement cheap cartridges wouldn't give up on your old one unless totally broken. 😄

The printer on its own seems no cheaper than Amazon or printerland but if you add the 2 years unlimited printing then its a least £100 cheaper. This might work for the other Ecotank printer…
