Today, Epson has announced three new monochrome EcoTank printers. These three new models include Epson M1100, M1120 and M2140. These printers have been made especially for office printing market and they have many features that—the company claims—would persuade mono laser printer users to shift to EcoTank printers.
The three printers are aimed at lowering business printing costs, which is incurred with the use of mono laser printers. They charge 12 paise per print, which makes their printing cost 23 times lower than mono laser printers. The mono laser printers cost Rs 2.74 per print with original toners.
According to Epson, the monochrome EcoTank printers have especially been designed by taking into account UN Sustainable development Goals (SDG). There are refill ink bottles that provide an ultra-high page yield of up to 6,000 pages per bottle compared to laser printers which have an original toner yield of up to 2,000 pages per toner. According to the company, this will help businesses to get over the frequent changes of toners and consequently, help them reduce carbon footprint to a considerable amount.
The Epson M1100 and M1120 come with 1,440×720 dpi and provide a print speed of up to 32ppm (pages per minute). Both the printers weigh 3.5 kgs. Exclusively, the Epson M1120 comes with Epson iPrint, Epson Email print, remote print driver and google cloud print. Maximum paper size for Epson M1100 and M1120 is 215.9x1200mm.
The Epson M1100 costs Rs 12,099 and the Epson 1120, on the other hand, costs Rs 12,999. To talk about the Epson M2140, it comes with 1,200×2,400 dpi and it can scan and copy aside from printing. The device has a printing speed of up to 39 ppm. It weighs 6.2 kgs and costs Rs 19,899.
All the three printers have a warranty period of up to three years and can provide up to 50,000 prints. Siva Kumar, General Manager of InkJet Printers, Epson India said, “For organizations that are concerned about their printing costs and are concerned about the environment, there is no better option than Epson’s M Series EcoTank printers. 23 times lesser printing costs and over 17 times lesser power consumed translate into significant savings over the life of a printer.”
