    Looking at a new printer, all-in-one type unit, and we like the idea of user serviceable ink bottles, instead of the traditional cartridges.

    Has any used either the Expression line or Workforce line from Epson that utilize their Supertank(EcoTank) system?

    Any other brands with this type of ink system yo can recommend?

    Unless you need to print photos on photo paper I'd say get a multifunction color laserjet printer.

    The Expression ET‑2550 might be your best bet then since it says it's a photo printer.

    Yeah thats the Expression line unit I was considering. Its cheaper than the 2500 and I can't tell the difference anyhow.

    The Workforce line might be too much for home usage and several hundie more here.

    Before getting the Canon printer I have now I had an Epson workforce printer. Lasted our family about 8 years of regular use before it got fried by a power surge. They're pretty good printers!

    I did look at one of those printers before I bought my latest brother printer, every time I have to buy a replacement cartridge and see the ridiculous price, I wonder if I would have been better off buying one of those printers where you can refill the ink from a bottle, the problem is a lot of my printers don't seem to last all that long

    Your house seems to be very susceptible to power surges.

    In the area I live in thunderstorms are regularly occurring and they almost always surge our power. And for being built in 1992 my houses wiring sucks anyway
