    I'm just testing the ET2650 for myself. Initial results are excellent even compared to my 1500W (Although profile is a little off with that!) but the ET really is painfully slow. Switching to normal from high quality doesn't seem to speed it up much either!

    The ET3700 is £190 Ex. VAT on ebuyer. Might be worth testing. I like the fact the new Ecotanks have the fill levels on the front rather than the side.

    The print heads / area they print is small this is the main issue with the speed. For me, I am happy to wait for a quality print, but can definitely see a slow print speed getting annoying in a business environment.

    And my other concern about Eco Tank is how do you swap ink if you needed to (sub ink to dye ink etc..) ??..

    To swap ink, you would need to empty as much from the tanks as possible, and refill them with printer cleaning fluid, and then run like this until the printer prints just clear fluid - there may be a purge/initial fill mode option which would really help to do this, and once done drain off the cleaning fluid and fill with the new ink - a similar process we use with large format printers with a bulk feed system.

    The L1800 is a great printer, but the lack of UK warranty is always an issue. Especially for a reseller, as an end user I would certainly buy one and risk it. You are correct if the Eco tank developed a fault this would cause issues, however I am personally yet to come across one that has so in my experience they are reliable in that sense.

    Personally I don't advise swapping between dye sub and regular inks as it requires a large amount of head cleaning (usually) I often use my dye sub printers (using dye sub ink) to print normal documents such as invoices, letters, emails things like that.

    It works well, saves having to swap and change inks and also gives the printers some work if we aren't using them for dye sub printing for a few days.
