Epson EcoTank Photo ET-8550 driver download

Epson EcoTank ET-8550 driver. The Epson EcoTank Photo ET-8550 is an all-in-one photo printer with a refillable ink tank. It supports Wi-Fi, USB, and Ethernet connectivity, and you can also print directly off an SD card. Its flatbed scanner supports up to legal-size paper but lacks an automatic document feeder and fax functionality. In addition to the usual cyan, magenta, yellow, and black ink, it also uses grey and photo-black ink to produce more detailed photos. This is a wide format printer that supports up to 13″ x 19″ paper size. There’s a smaller variant called the Epson EcoTank Photo ET-8500; it has a smaller 8.5″ x 11.7″ flatbed scanner and only supports up to 8.5″ x 11″ paper size.

The Epson EcoTank Photo ET-8550 is excellent for family use. A full ink tank yields thousands of pages, and replacement ink is fairly inexpensive, so your maintenance cost remains low over time, even if you print a lot. Although it lacks an automatic document feeder, the scanner produces exceptional scans, which is great for digitizing your old family photos. It also prints high-quality documents and detailed, colourful pictures. It has plenty of connectivity options so that every household member can access the printer easily, and it’s compatible with Epson’s mobile app, allowing you to print directly from your smartphone.
