‘Does the printer have ink?’
Belle is shouting this up the stairs at me at about 11.23pm on a Sunday night. I am in bed already.
‘Umm…’ I reply, making a bit of a sceptical face, ‘I’m not sure.’
I hear heavy sighing.
I could raise the point that 11.23pm on a Sunday is not really the time to be starting to think about printing things, but also I know that ‘buy ink for printer’ has been popping up as a reminder on my phone now for about three weeks.
Printer ink is one of those things that grates on me, like car repairs. I begrudge having to spend money on something just to then have to KEEP spending money on it. Printer ink is the worst because I stupidly bought one of those cheap printers that FEELS good value, until you realise that replacing the ink is going to cost you more than the printer did in the first place and that you will need to do it roughly every eight sheets of paper.
You’re feeling my pain I can tell.
You can imagine then my SURPRISE AND DELIGHT to be asked to review the Epson EcoTank ET-2750, which comes in a box that says this:
14,000 pages?? Will I ever even print that much now in the whole of the remainder of my life? Doubtful. In which case this could very well be a printer that NEVER RUNS OUT OF INK. (Note: I’m sure the ink would dry up eventually if I didn’t use it – Epson says the ink can last for up to three years, which feels like a much more reliable claim.) View Post
