Epson Eco Tank ET-2500 Printer Review


A few weeks ago the lovely people at Epson sent me one of their Epson Eco Tank ET-2500 Printer  (RRP £229.99) to review, I also ran a giveaway for one which had a great response and the winner is hopefully enjoying her prize now 🙂


I don’t know about you but I am ALWAYS running out of ink and the ink for my current printer is so expensive so when I heard about the Eco Tank range I was actually really excited about them. The ink which comes with the Epson Eco Tank ET-2500 Printer is expected to last around 2 years, then when you run out you just refill the tanks! Genius! I just had a quick look on Amazon and a full set of ink bottles for this printer is currently £36.99! That is a good deal cheaper then the ink from my current printer and I was replacing those cartridges every 6-12 months, so that is definitely going to save me some pennies!

The Epson Eco Tank ET-2500 Printer isn’t just a printer it scans and copies too which is just brilliant, every family should have a scanner/copier in their household nowadays. I use my copier every single day for all different kinds of things. The print quality on the Epson Eco Tank ET-2500 Printer is great and I have been using it to print photos, calendar pages, stationary and much more!


The Epson Eco Tank ET-2500 Printer is really simple to set up and get started, it connects to your wifi. I have ours connected to my phone and iPad to it so I can easily print photos and documents from those devices too! It doesn’t have AirPrint but it does have it’s own App that you can print through.

The EcoTank range offers the UK’s first branded printer models to come with refillable tanks that provide a continuous supply of ink to the printer, which will last most users two years for convenience and to save a huge amount on printing costs.  These new ultra-high-capacity inkjet models offer affordability, convenience, quality and reliability, all in one box.

They feature easy-to-use Wi-Fi, mobile printing, Micro Piezo printhead technology and have warranties of up to 50,000 pages (depending on the model). It is calculated that the printers in the range could save an average of 70% on printing costs, and deliver yields of up to 11,000 pages – making them ideal for busy, cost-conscious families and home workers.


  • Two years of ink – Print up to 4,000 pages in black and 6,500 pages in colour3
  • Ultra low-cost printing – Save 70% on printing costs
  • No ink cartridges – Easy-refill ink tank system
  • Wi-Fi & apps – Print from mobile devices
  • 3-in-1 – Print, copy & scan


From what I have seen so far I am very impressed with the Epson Eco Tank ET-2500 Printer – if I was going to purchase one myself I would spend the extra money and get the Epson Eco Tank ET-4500 Printer as that has Apple AirPrint and an LCD which makes life a little easier 🙂

    That looks amazing, we seem to spend an absolute fortune on ink and are always running out.

    Ink which lasts 2 years sounds incredible. One of the reasons we put off buying a new printer when our last one broke was the cost of the ink cartridges on top of the printer itself. This has made me think maybe there are good value printers out there though which are worth trying!

    We so need a new printer, this one looks fab. I’ll look into the one you mentioned at the end of your post. Thanks x

    Tjis would be perfect for my mums business as she always has to print out really beautiful high quality leaflets and brochures and this looks top notch! x

    We don’t have a printer at home, so this kind of thing would be perfect for us. Perhaps then I’d actually get round to printing off some of my pictures, rather than storing them all electronically.

    This sounds like a great printer – I’d be interested to hear how you actually refill the ink though. My printer has separate cartridges for each colour, so they last for ages, but they’re not refillable.

    I was the lucky winner whoop whoop! Can’t wait for it to arrive especially after reading your review, I am so over the moon 🙂 x

    I have tried this printed and really struggled to get on with it. Do agree that the lack of needing new ink every 5 mins is good though.

  • Reply Jen January 27, 2016 at 9:47 am

    Oh interesting. We have been offered one to review. I am not sure that we actually do that much printing to warrent it!

  • Reply Kara January 27, 2016 at 7:16 am

    We have one and it is great for printing letters and homework but I have been left disappointed by the picture quality

  • Reply Globalmouse January 26, 2016 at 9:27 pm

    Oh this looks great and I’m not joking, I have literally just run out of ink….again!!!

  • Reply Kate Thompson January 26, 2016 at 8:57 pm

    Wow -we were only saying yesterday that it is criminal how ink costs more than printers these days, and how you are encouraged to throw printers away as the new one with “free” ink is cheaper. Not very environmentally friendly! This is *exactly* what we need, although expensive if the ink really does last that long it would be worth every penny.

  • Reply Louise Edwards January 26, 2016 at 12:52 pm

    This sounds like a fab printer – two years of printing for less that £40 what a bargain! We go through loads of ink too and I feel like throwing our printer out of the window sometimes so this sounds perfect. x

  • Reply Helen @actuallymummy January 26, 2016 at 12:48 pm

    I love all the money-saving printers on the market now. We have one with a subscription that automatically knows when I’m running out of ink and sends me cartridges – no more planning a trip to Ryman’s! This is a great idea too.
