Better One crucial factor when buying a modern printer is its connectivity options. The Epson EcoTank ET-4810 scores well here, offering various connection options including LAN (Ethernet), integrated WLAN, and Wi-Fi Direct. This allows for seamless integration into nearly any home or office network. There’s also a USB port available. Another advantage is its compatibility with iOS devices, thanks to AirPrint support, enabling hassle-free and direct printing from an Apple device. It also features an Automatic Document Feeder (ADF). However, it lacks a touchscreen, which is standard on many newer models. It’s also missing a duplex unit, and there’s no support for CD printing, which could be a crucial factor for some.
Faster Regarding print speed, the Epson EcoTank ET-4810 delivers satisfactory results. From initiating a print job, it takes about 10.6 seconds to start. The inkjet printer then outputs at a rate of 14.8 monochrome pages per minute. However, printing a graphic takes around 2 minutes and 33 seconds, and a photo takes about 2 minutes and 54 seconds to print. Both times are acceptable but not particularly impressive when compared to some competitors.
Copy Speed and Print Quality
The copy speeds are a bit better. A black-and-white text copy takes about 12 seconds, and a photo copy is ready in 1 minute and 12 seconds. In terms of print quality, the Epson EcoTank ET-4810 generally performs well. While graphics printing could be improved, the quality of text prints is quite good, which should suffice for most home and office applications. The same goes for photo print quality. It should also be noted that photo scanning leaves hardly any traces, a significant plus for those who frequently print or scan photos. However, the quality of text copies could be improved.
Quiet and Economical
One major advantage of the EcoTank ET-4810 is its quiet operation, a significant benefit in tranquil office environments or home offices.
Cost-Efficient and User-Friendly
When it comes to printing costs, the Epson EcoTank ET-4810 excels, costing just 0.2 pence per A4 text page and 0.5 pence per coloured A4 page. The manufacturer uses high-volume ink tanks for different colours, boosting efficiency and lowering costs.
In summary, if you’re looking for a simple, cost-effective printer for home use that’s easy to operate and you don’t need high-resolution graphics, then the Epson EcoTank ET-4810 is a suitable choice. Its compact size (37.4 x 57.2 x 24.5 cm) ensures it fits even in a small office. However, if you’re expecting more features and brilliant graphics given the relatively high purchase price, you might be disappointed.
