It’s even rather strange to see two interface connectors – LPT and USB – in a device that was designed to be as cheap as possible (without control buttons and a per-sheet feed slot, among other things). On the other hand, an entry-level printer is quite likely to be connected to an old computer with very few, if any, USB ports available.
It’s good to see the manufacturer did not save on really important things like the fan for cooling the heater. The fan is quiet and not irritating at all.
The cartridge can be taken apart by detaching the container with toner from the photo-drum holder. This solution is justifiable considering the difference between the service life of the toner container and the photo-conductor, which is 3000 and 20000 prints, respectively.
There’s a plug on the side of the toner container, so you can fill it up by yourself – but at your own risk, of course!
Taken as a whole, the design of the Epson EPL-6200L is both practical and ergonomic and all the basic parts and mechanisms are high quality even though the manufacturer economized a little on some small things. The printer didn’t fail once during my tests and never chewed up even low-quality paper, so it is quite reliable at everyday use.
