71.8 Printer Install Epson ET-1810 Printer


This EcoTank printer cost AUD $234. It was set up using the Epson Android app to connect to WiFi and intialise the ink. Once setup the printer was immediately recognised on Ubuntu as EPSON_ET_1810_Series and no further setup or driver was required/available/installed.

The printer came with ink for the four tanks (BK, Y, M, C) which is otherwise available for AUD $16 (or AUD $6 for 3rd party ink). There is a suggestion that the ink will last 2 years. The claim is also that the ink delivers up to 4,500 pages for the black ink and 7,500 pages for the colour inks. Essentially 39c per 100 pages black (or 5 pages for 2c).
