Springtime is a weird time for me. On one hand I'm buying tulips, lighting scented candles and spending time replacing my grey/black winter wardrobe with more colour.
But as it's my final semester at uni, I'm super busy and bogged down with tonnes of work.
Epson were kind enough to send me their fancy new eco printer to try and I was interested to see if it would make my uni and writing life (I write novels and poetry) a tad bit easier.
You may think it's odd that I'm doing a whole blog post about a printer, but this thing has really saved my bacon (and pennies!) over the past few months.
Let me explain...
During my four years at uni, I've spent so much money on printer credit and have never actually had a printer in any of my flats. This meant running to the library before a deadline, having to wait in line for about ten minutes and then always having some kind of technical error. It's been really stressful!
The Epson EcoTank (*) is something I've never seen before. Instead of faffing around with pricey ink cartridges that you have to refill every month, this printer has a much more time and cost-efficient system. You pour your coloured ink into the designated tank and you're good to go! I've been using this printer non-stop, and the ink is nowhere near empty.
I read that this ink will not need to be refilled for TWO YEARS.
What kind of awesomeness is this?
Wanna know something else that's pretty nifty? No only can you print wirelessly, you can also print wirelessly from your mobile or tablet when you connect to the printers strong wifi connection.
After a really (thankGod, because I had been dreading it), the print was good to go in under 30 mins - no errors, no annoying beeping sounds, just smooth eco printing.
If you are a student, who spends so much money on uni/college printer credit and is sick and tired of having to go on campus to print, I really recommend investing in an Epson ET-2500 EcoTank printer. It can save you up to 70% in printing costs!
Right now, I'm working on my debut poetry pamphlet, and printing off those dreaded past papers for my last ever uni exam. Deadlines are looming, but I'm feeling less stressed out now that I don't have to worry about wasting time with uni printers!
Wish me luck guys!
How is your Spring going so far? :)
