Epson launches compact and white EcoTank printers
Cost-effective and mess-free printers designed to reflect design trends
Epson’s award-winning EcoTank printers have been given a stylish new look with a compact footprint and a white finish on four of the new models (L3116, L3156, L4156, L6176). Making them ideal for modern spaces, the five new models are on sale from April 2019.
Timothy Thomas, Epson Consumer Sales manager, says: “Black printers have always proved very popular, but some customers said they wanted a different option that wouldn’t look out of place in their homes or stylish offices. We believe today’s launch is on trend with its white finish, and redesigned smaller footprint.”
The latest printers in the EcoTank range feature a new space-saving design. No longer located to the side, the tank is integrated and placed at the front of the printer. In addition to saving space this modification means it’s simple to see how much ink is left. Furthermore, the new bottles are squeeze-free making refills easy and mess-free, and only the correct colours can be inserted into each tank.
In keeping with the other cost-effective EcoTanks in the range, these printers (L3160, L3116, L3156, L4156, L6176) feature a large ink tank that is filled by high-yield ink bottles. From the bottles included with the printer, users receive up to three years' worth of ink 1. Providing great value for money, consumers could save up to 90% on the cost of ink 2. Replacement ink bottles are affordable too.
Printing from mobiles, tablets and laptops is easy using EcoTank 3. With Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi Direct, users can send documents to print from smart devices using the Epson iPrint 4app. It can even receive files from almost anywhere in the world via Epson Email Print 4.
These latest EcoTank printers provide even more choice to consumers: L3116 is a white entry level 3-in-1 printer, L3156 is a white 3-in-1 printer with Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi Direct, L3160 is a black 3-in-1 printer with LCD screen, Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi Direct, the L4156 is a white 3-in-1 with pigment black for high-quality document printing, and the L6176 is a white 3-in-1 with double-sided printing and Automatic Document Feeder.
The L3160, L3116, L3156, L4156, L6176 are available from April 2019.
