Epson this week introduced two new portable projectors, the EX5250 Pro and the EX5240. The new projectors are aimed at small- to medium-sized businesses, and both are designed to integrate with users' mobile and other devices. Both output at 1024x768, and both models support HDMI connectivity spanning numerous devices.
Printers are funny devices when you think about it -- the cost of printer ink has become the punchline to many a joke, and it's not uncommon for people to just buy a new, cheap printer when they run out of ink as it's cheaper to buy a whole new one, rather than pay up to $120 to get a full set of ink. Epson's come up with an ingenious, possibly retro, way to solve that problem: the EcoTank Series. We got our hands on an Epson Expression ET-2550 EcoTank and thought we'd share our experience -- check our full review to see what we thought.
