This printer saves you big on the cost of ink
At first glance, you might think $230 (or $229.99 to be exact) is a lot to spend on a printer. And it is — until you consider the cost of ink.
Clark has said in the past that most printer companies opt to lose money on the upfront cost of printers, instead making most of their money on the ink. There’s a joke out there saying that printer ink is one of the most precious and expensive liquids anyone could buy. In fact, the Wall Street Journal did a comparison of printer ink, expensive wine, truffles and caviar and found that printer ink was most expensive than any of these delicacies! Consumer Reports has also had a lot to say about the lifetime cost of printer ink.
This printer, on the other hand, takes the opposite approach. You’ll pay more for the upfront cost of the printer, but so much less for the cost of the ink. The Epson Expression® ET-2650 EcoTank™ all-in-one printer comes with a two-year’s supply of ink right in the box — or 8,000 black and white pages and 6,500 color pages. It has built in wireless, so you can easily print from anywhere — smartphones, tablets or your computer. It even won the Gold for the 2016 Consumer World Awards for all-in-one printers! Costco has the best price at $229.99 for Costco members, with free shipping.
