The total cost of ownership is indicated by the red line, based on pages printed per month for years.
The total cost of ownership is based on the purchase cost of the hardware plus the ongoing costs of ink/toner. Other costs may influence the total cost of ownership and could lead to further savings, such as additional consumables used by laser printers and power consumption. The average selling price of the printers and consumables were obtained from the IDC EMEA Hardcopy Peripherals Tracker ((Data Q2 2016 – Q1 2017) and IDC EMEA Consumables Tracker ((Data H1 2016, H2 2016).
Epson’s new EcoTank range of printers features revolutionary refillable ink tank technology that offers an unbeatable combination of convenience and value for homes, home offices and small offices. Print without cartridges at a very low cost.
1 Average number of cartridges required /savings achieved printing the same number of pages using the ink bottles included within the EcoTank range, excluding hardware price. Comparison made on the average of the A4 EcoTank range versus the average of the top 10 best-selling models in Western Europe, in the period January 2017– December 2017, as tracked by GfK. Printing costs calculated on the proportion of Standard and XL cartridges as tracked by GfK for the same reference period for the Western European market, using average retail prices. Ink cartridge yields as communicated by the manufacturer’s websites.
2 Cost per page calculated by ink bottle RRP divided by quoted yield.
3 14,000-page ink yield included with ET-3700, ET-3750 and ET-4750. Please check specifications for included ink with other models. Quoted yields are extrapolated based on Epson original methodology from the print simulation of Test Patterns provided in ISO/IEC 24712. Black: 14,000/Colour: 11,200 pages yield based on two ink bottle sets included with this printer. Black: 7,500/Colour: 6,000 pages yield based on 102 ink bottles sold separately. Quoted yields are NOT based on ISO/IEC24711. Quoted yields may vary depending on the images that you are printing, the paper type that you are using, the frequency of your prints and environmental conditions such as temperature.
4 The 'Market Average' is an overall average figure derived from the 20 comparison models used in the TCO Calculator. All manufacturers' specifications and performance data was collated from publicly available information including but not limited to manufacturers' own brochures and websites.
