We all know the game the printer companies have been playing for years. They practically give away their inkjet printers to consumers, and then hit you hard every time one of the cartridges runs out of ink (which happens quickly). Some manufacturers even added DRM to the printers to ensure you don’t cut into their huge ink profit margins by using a 3rd party solution. Now one printer company has decided to try a different tact.
Epson is launching a new line of EcoTank inkjet printers later this month that do not use expensive ink cartridges.
