    I like and use HP printers. I know there are some HP haters however I haven't had a bad experience. I use Lasers.

    They are all brand names and shouldn't cause you an issue. I would probable read a couple of reviews on each and draw your own conclusions base on what you need.

    By need, I see you want lots of Ink. Other things do come into play, what kind of network attachments does it support, I like wired.
    What is the duty cycle and how fast is it? Does it print duplex, is there an auto feeder for scanning and how many sheets? Can input drawres be added to carry alternate paper sources say for legal.

    Does it support mobiles like Apple's Airprint or what ever you use?

    The Epson Ecotank was the first of its kind, Canon followed Epson's lead a few years later. Brother now make tank printers too. I wasn't aware that HP had joined the club, must have been quite recent.

    I have an Epson ET-4750 I'm very happy with (full duplex and a document handler that folds away neatly when not in use). I'm not a heavy user, but I do like to print A4 glossy photos.

    Epson’s EcoTank series was first to market back in 2015. Canon brought us the Megatank in 2017 and Brother just recently introduced an ink tank version of their popular Inkvestment printer line. Here, we compare a couple of popular models from each brand so you can determine if an ink tank printer is right for you.

    There is no real answer to your question. I have been using HP Inkjets and LaserJets mono/colour for decades, but never the Inkjet versions with a tank.

    I know other people using the Epson equivalents who get more problems than I get with HP.

    Print heads can always get blocked with dried ink. Some have a replaceable Print Head, some have the Print Head on the cartridge which means you get a new Print Head every cartridge. Whilst costly has advantages.

    Depends a lot on your usage, tanks are for high volume users. If you are not then not much point. The Print Head might clog up needing a costly replacement part negating any saving in ink costs.

    Your profile flag says 'Singapore'. For your region the Epson Ecotank L1110 is their base model.

    That's in your budget too.

    As I said earlier, I'm not a heavy user. My Epson Ecotank can go weeks at a time without use. I have had it for over a year and never had the print head dry up.

    The Epson printer that you recommend does not attract me. Igo for this printer instead.Canon PIXMA G2010

    I've never used a tank-type inkjet.

    I have the impression that Brother may be the best in terms of long-term driver support.

    I'm a bit down on HP because they seemed to be the market leader in terms of tiny, overpriced inkjet cartridges. Perhaps they've cleaned up their act since I last bought an HP inkjet.

    ...and firmware updates to reject anything but a genuine HP one

    My Ecotank was a replacement for an elderly Lexmark, so old that I had to keep an XP machine running in order to use it (no other drivers available) and OEM cartridges were near-impossible to find. When it finally died I went for a tank system on the grounds that my main use was photo printing - and that uses a lot of ink.

    only way to disable automatic firmware updates on certain HP printers is to turn off HP web services
    though I hardly had any problems with HP inkjet/officejet printers in general, although my family used to have an old HP Officejet 6500a plus wireless [E710n-z] printer for almost a decade and it died sometime last year (it would never power on again, even when plugged into any socket)

    OP's pick for the Canon G2010 printer is pretty good. check out one of the reviews of it here:
