Exceptionally low running costs. 6,000-page ink bottle included in box. Terrific print quality. Smart home voice-printing and scanning. Fast first page out. Two-year warranty with registration.
Costly. Sluggish compared with laser counterparts. Low monthly print volume ratings. Lacks automatic document feeder.
- BOTTOM LINE
The inexpensive-to-use Epson EcoTank ET-M2170 is a well-printing monochrome inkjet AIO, but its slightly costlier sibling offers additional office-friendly features that make it a better value.

Editors’ Rating: GOOD
The Epson EcoTank ET-M2170 ($399.99) is a monochrome all-in-one printer that’s a step down from the Editors’ Choice ET-M3170, the flagship model in Epson’s recent series of bulk-ink machines. Both entry-level models print at reasonable but not blazingly fast speeds and have the lowest running costs in the consumer- and small-business-grade printer business. For the $50 difference between the ET-M2170 and the ET-M3170, you give up an automatic document feeder (ADF), the ability to send and receive faxes, a larger touch-screen control panel, and a few other less significant options. If your small or home-based office doesn’t need these features, the ET-M2170 is a solid, slightly less-expensive alternative.
