The L300, L350, L355 and L550 come with two additional black ink bottles in the initial bundle, while the L800 comes with an additional light magenta and light cyan ink bottle each in the initial bundle.

Ultra high performing and reliable Epson Micro Piezo print head – The Epson L-series is made possible by Epson’s advanced “Micro Piezo” print head technology that has higher reliability and lower operating temperature than competing thermal print head technology used by other inkjet makers. The high reliability of Epson’s Micro Piezo print head allows it to be built into the printer and cater for high volume printing. The Epson Micro Piezo print head found in the Epson L-series models achieves a maximum print resolution of 5760 x 1440 dpi and its variable size droplet technology (VSDT) allows the print head to eject ink droplets in multiple sizes. These capabilities ensure the greatest detail and extremely smooth gradations in documents or photographs.
Easy operation – The Epson L-series printers feature Epson Original Ink Tanks, neatly integrated ink tubes and a special choke valve, all of which allow for easy ink refilling as well as convenient transportation of the printer.
Peace of mind through Epson warranty – Unlike third-party systems, the Epson L-series ink tank system printers are covered by Epson’s warranty for a year or for 15,000 pages (L110 and L210) or 30,000 pages (L300, L350, L355 and L550) and six months for L800 or 3,000 pages, whichever comes earlier.
