EPSON MONO ECOTANK M2170
THIS THREE-IN-ONE EcoTank is a high-quality workhorse device that will reduce your day-to-day running costs in the long run. Its large, refillable ink tank features ink bottles instead of expensive ink- and toner cartridges, and can print up to 11 000 pages with the included black ink.
This system will result in savings of up to 50 per cent in three years when compared to monochrome laser printers, as well as more than 90 per cent on the cost per page, as each replacement ink bottle can print 6 000 pages. So you can cut down on the time you usually spend replacing ink, and there’s no warm-up time required for the device to achieve its speeds of 20 pages per minute. Replace paper less often too with the
250-sheet tray, and save on paper usage with automatic double-sided printing.
The EcoTank saves you up to 95 per cent in power consumption compared to monochrome laser printers.
It’s slick and compact (375 mm wide, 345 mm deep, 300 mm high), and the 3.7 cm colour
LCD screen let’s you browse through the menus and select features with ease.
Epson’s PrecisionCore printhead is renowned for its speed, quality, reliability and efficiency, and print resolution of 1 200 × 2 400 dpi can be achieved, meaning crisp and detailed text and beautifully defined graphics.
The EcoTank has both USB and WiFi connectivity, allowing you to scan-toCloud and print from anywhere in the office using Epson’s free mobile printing apps. If you’ve got internet access, remote printing from outside the office is also possible.
Every Mono EcoTank printer comes with a one-year/100 000-page warranty, giving you peace of mind. *Available from FNB Connect. (Check the website for pricing.) fnb.co.za/fnb-connect/shop. html
