Pros and Cons

Before our final verdict, we will go over a few pros and cons of the two EcoTank printers from Epson.

Epson ET-2650

Epson ET-2650

Pros:

  • Close to laser print quality
  • It handles being connected to multiple devices at the same time
  • Setup is incredibly simple when you follow the instructions

Cons:

  • The scanner could be better

Epson ET-2750

Epson ET-2750

Pros:

  • Scanned images are much clearer
  • There is an unbelievable amount of ink
  • You have Google Cloud printing

Cons:

  • It’s a little loud

The Final Verdict

You might feel that both the Epson ET-2650 and the Epson ET-2750 are lacking some of the typical features that you see in a printer, for example, an auto doc feeder, larger paper trays and 2sided scanning. Really, the main reason for choosing one of these is because of the EcoTank printing and the savings.

Today’s overall winner is the Epson ET-2750, but it was still a difficult call. After testing all of the features, we found that there were a couple of things that made it worth the extra investment. In the first place, the printer is more economical in ink consumption. With the same size bottles, you are able to ger more color and black copies. The quality for both printers was good, but it did help that the scanner was better with the Epson ET-2750. We also felt that having scan to email and Google Cloud printing are quite important features to have.
