WorkForce Pro ET-8700 EcoTank Feature-Rich All-in-One Offers Fast Printing In Compact Form Factor

LONG BEACH, Calif., April 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Epson America, Inc., a leading provider of printing solutions, today announced the WorkForce(®) Pro ET-8700 EcoTank(®) All-In-One printer, the newest addition to the line of cartridge-free EcoTank printers. The WorkForce Pro ET-8700 features Epson's innovative Replaceable Ink Pack System technology in a new compact form factor, with up to two years of ink included in the box(1)--enough to print up to 16,000 pages black and 11,000 pages color(2).

The WorkForce Pro ET-8700, designed specifically for the small-to-medium business market, allows users to speed through projects with 24 ISO ppm (black/color)(**) print speeds, plus fast scan speeds of up to 24 ppm(3).

(*)This product uses only genuine Epson-brand ink packs. Other brands of ink supplies are not compatible and, even if described as compatible, may not function properly.
(**) Black and color print speeds are measured in accordance with ISO/IEC 24734. Actual print times will vary based on factors including system configuration, software, and page complexity. For more information, visit www.epson.com/printspeed
(1) Based on average monthly document print volumes of about 450 pages.
(2) Included ink pack yields are estimated based on ISO/IEC 24711 test in Default Mode printing continuously. Ink pack yields vary considerably for reasons including printed images, print settings, temperature and humidity. Yields may be lower when printing infrequently or predominantly with one ink color. All ink colors are used for printing and printer maintenance, and all colors have to be installed for printing. For print quality, part of the ink from the included ink packs is used for printer startup and a variable amount of ink remains in the ink pack after the "replace ink pack" signal. For details, see www.epson.com/inkinfo
(3) Based on letter-sized scans at 200 dpi in Black-and-white or Color Mode, using the USB interface.
(4) Compared to the Epson WorkForce Pro WF-R4640 when in storage mode, with all paper feeds closed.
(5) Savings comparison based on the purchase cost of replacement ink packs and the cost of enough color toner cartridges to achieve the total page yields of the ink packs using the manufacturers' online prices and yields for the highest-capacity toner cartridges for the best-selling similarly featured color laser printers with speeds of 30 ppm or less per NPD, August 2017. Actual savings will vary based on print tasks, print volumes and usage conditions.
(6) Most features require an Internet connection to the printer, as well as an Internet- and/or email-enabled device. For a list of Epson Connect(TM) enabled printers and compatible devices and apps, visit www.epson.com/connect
(7) Wi-Fi CERTIFIED(TM); level of performance subject to the range of the router being used. Wi-Fi Direct may require printer software.
(8) NFC requires use of a device that includes NFC, and may require additional software.
(9) 12 months of standard limited warranty or 150,000 plain paper sheets (whichever happens first). For an additional 12 months (total of 24 months or 150,000 plain paper sheets, whichever happens first), register your product. See Limited Warranty for details.
(10) Based on average monthly print volumes of about 300 pages.
(11) ET-2500/2550/2600/2650/2700/2750/3600/3700/3750/4500/4550/4750/16500 included ink bottle yields based on the ISO/IEC 24712 pattern with Epson's methodology. ET-7700/7750 included ink bottle photo yields are significantly lower and are based on the ISO/IEC 29103 pattern with Epson's methodology. ET-8700 included ink pack yields are estimated based on ISO/IEC 24711 test in Default Mode printing continuously. Actual ink yields will vary considerably for reasons including images printed, print settings, temperature and humidity.
