  1. Included ink bottle yields based on the ISO/IEC 24712 pattern with Epson's methodology. Included ink bottle photo yields are significantly lower and are based on the ISO/IEC 29103 pattern with Epson's methodology. Actual ink yields will vary considerably for reasons including images printed, print settings, temperature and humidity. Yields may be lower when printing infrequently or predominantly with one ink colour. All ink colours are used for printing and printer maintenance, and all colours must be available for printing.
  2. Most features require an Internet connection to the printer, as well as an Internet and/or email-enabled device. See for a list of Epson Connect enabled printers and compatible devices and Apps.
  3. Black and colour print speeds are measured in accordance with ISO/IEC 24734. Actual print times will vary based on system configuration, software, and page complexity. See for details, including complete ISO reports.
  4. Actual savings and costs will vary considerably based on print tasks, print volumes and usage conditions. Savings and cost per ISO page are based on the cost of replacement ink bottles and the cost of enough high-capacity cartridges to achieve the total page yields of the bottles using the RRP (AUD) and yields for Epson high-capacity (312Xl and 277XL) ink cartridges for similarly featured Epson consumer inkjet printers as of October 2023.
  5. 12 months of standard Return to Base warranty. For an additional 12 months (total of 24 months), register online at within 12 months of purchase.
