“They UPS in the device and we’ll repair it if we can,” Chen explains. “If we can’t, we’ll return a replacement unit.” Epson covers shipping costs in both programs.

Users can upgrade from Standard to Premium in year two for $169.99, and can purchase up to three years of extension coverage at either level.

Global printer shipments grew 19.3% year over year in the first quarter of 2021 to approximately 25.5 million units worth $10.9 billion, according to IDC. Epson has seen brisk sales of business inkjet models in particular.
