the number one problem with owning your own printer is the cost of ink for it . that s according to consumer reports. so when epson introduced a printer that promises to save on ink -- a lot of people were asking -- does it really work? consumer reports put it to the test -- to see if it really is worth the money. at 400-dollars, the new epson ecotank printer is far more expensive than most. but the company says its refillable tanks will save you from the high cost of ink cartridges. is it worth dirtying your hands? chyron: patrick austin consumer reports sot "we put the ecotank through the same tests other printers face to determine out how much it really costs for you to own." v/o those tests are based on the average amount of printing people do in a month, according to a consumer that )s 23 pages of text, nine pages of graphics and about nine photos at the end of two years, the total cost of the printer and ink is 400 dollars for the epson ecotank, but only 325 dollars for this 200-dollar hp officejet
4:31 pm
so should you forget the epson ecotank? chyron: patrick austin consumer reports sot "if you do a lot of printing and plan to keep this printer for a while, it could save you money in the long run." v/o things do look much different after five years. the total cost of the ecotank is 448 dollars. the hp officejet pro is 588 dollars and the canon maxify is 692 dollars. sot: patrick austin "if you don t print a lot, it makes more sense to buy the printer that )s cheaper up front." v/o both the hp and canon printers are consumer reports best buys. the hp is fast at printing quality black text. the canon is a very good option for printing photos. another option is consumer reports top- rated printer - the 100-dollar epson expression premium xp-620. it prints excellent quality photos and costs about 14 dollars a month-- in ink. after our wintry weekend, the work week is going to look and feel a lot more springlike.
