The perfect family printer
Having tried many different printers over the years, I am really very impressed with the EcoTank ET-4500. It looks good, it is very easy to set up and I have found it to be extremely user-friendly.
We are a large family who all use a printer a lot and the printer responds very quickly and is easy to connect to via our different computers and devices. The print quality has been excellent so far and I have also been impressed with the quality of the copier.
The refillable tanks are a genius idea. We filled up when we set up the printer and after three weeks of daily use, hardly any ink has been used and I like the idea of the bottles of ink as it makes refilling the tanks easy and you don't have to worry about buying expensive ink cartridges as the ink bottles are very good value as they will last a long time before needing to be replaced.
Setting the printer up took around forty minutes and you follow instruction on the printer and the computer and filling the tanks takes a few minutes. Set up is helped by the good sized display panel and easy to use controls and unlike other wireless printers that I have used, I have been able to connect to this printer each time, straight away with all devices which has been really helpful.
The printer is quite big but it looks good and the refillable tanks are tucked away under a cover so that younger children won't be able to mess with them.
Apart from printing and copying, you can also use the ET-4500 as a scanner and a fax, I haven't used it as a scanner yet and I don't have a telephone line to use the fax, so I can't comment on those functions.
