Under its new EcoTank brand, Epson today unveiled five new all-in-one color printers featuring large ink reservoirs — what Epson defines as the Supertank category — that come loaded and ready for up to two years of prints without replacing the ink. Epson claims that When comparing EcoTank to a traditional printer, the ink included with the EcoTank is equivalent to about 20 sets of ink cartridges, depending on the model.
The WorkForce Pro WF-R4640 EcoTank All-in-One is powered by PrecisionCore and is intended for small business,. It has an in-box ink yield of up to 20,000 black and 20,000 color pages and print speeds of up to 20ppm in black or color.
