Epson L210 review – All In One printer with ink tank system

The Epson L210 is an all in one printer (print, scan and copy) with ink tank system and ultra low running cost. The initial investment is high but the running cost is quite low. This printer is priced at Rs. 10K approx.

Inside the box there is the printer, installation CD, quick start guide, power adapter, USB cable and color bottles (Black, Yellow, Magenta and Cyan).

Epson L201 Design and Installation
The L201 is compact and doesn’t take much of the space. The buttons are on the front side. The tank is little transparent – you can see the INK levels. You need to refill once the Ink reaches the lower line.

After Unboxing the Epson Printer you will first need to remove the protective tapes, and then fill in the colors from the bottle into the ink tank, the process is the same when re-filling. Once done you need to press the power button and then another button (check video review) to charge up the ink. The ink charging process takes about 20 minutes.

Once done you need to install the software from the CD and then when asked connect the printer. The installation is done.

Cost factor
I was using the HP deskjet F4100 all in one printer before, and now since my printouts have increased it was not at all affordable. For every HP cartridge (black colour) I would spend Rs. 950.

I had two options, one was to choose the HP All in One 1050 model for under Rs. 4500 and the cartridge would cost Rs. 466 (black) (120 page yield). This seemed a cheaper option but if look closely and read the fine prints you will find that for Rs. 466 you get a small black Ink cartridge, the large HP cartridge will cost you Rs. 1000. The color cartridge is even more expensive. The costing I think will come to the same as on my HP deskjet printer.

There is a single color cartridge that houses all the 3 colors. If any particular color gets empty the cartridge becomes useless even when the other colors compartment have some ink left. You can still take the printouts but the color production will be unnatural.

Also since I take a lot of color printouts, I choose the Epson L210. The L210 initial cost is under Rs. 10,000 but the ink cost is Rs. 375 per bottle. With the tank system you can fill in the ink as and when required for the specifics colors (optimal use of ink). The back ink bottle can print up to 4000 pages (page yield); the page yield will usually be less than 4000 (depending on your usage) but still its affordable.

Features
There is built in scanner that can be used to scan documents or print it directly (scan & print). There is the choke valve on the ink tank that comes handy when moving the printer from one location to another (minimize leaks).

Epson L210 review
A good printer for home and office use with optimal ink usage and ultra low cost running. The print quality both black / white and color is very good. If you’re print requirements are high then go for this model – it will be cheaper in the long run. In case your print requirement is less, but still can afford the initial cost, then too it’s a good buy.
