According to Epson, the wireless, multi-function EcoTank ET-8500 and ET-8550, use 6 color Epson Claria ET Premium inks and print stunning photos and documents at incredibly low running costs. They include a range of modern connectivity features the whole family will enjoy. The photo black and new photo grey ink make it easy to achieve detailed, high-contrast black and white photos with beautiful toning, while the pigment black ink ensures sharp text when printing double-sided documents on plain paper. The OEM claims that this makes these printers a fantastic choice for every task at the home. The two new printers come with flexible media handling capabilities. With five paper feeds there is no end to the creative projects these printers can deliver. Not only can users print directly onto suitable CDs and DVDs, but users can also store photo size and A4 paper in the two front trays ensuring the printer is always loaded and ready to go. The rear tray allows users to print on media such as craft papers and cards, even up to A3+ size with the ET-8550. Finally, the rear straight pass paper feed means users can print on media up to 1.3mm thick and 2 meters long and up to A4 in width for the ET-8500 or up to A3+ in width with the ET-8550.
