Ink cheaper but go through 2ce as much
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I bought this printer just over a year ago from an informercial. Supposed to use less ink & be cheaper. Yes the cartriges are cheaper but I go through 2ce as much. You can only get the cartriges from Kodak so stock up when you order. I don't think the colors are as bright as Hp ink. Seems to print photos well though. Paper seems to get jammed often & doesn't always want to feed in. I have had to call customer service to get new printhead every 6 months.
Excerpt: I got the Kodak 5500 last year during tax season and was prepared to be amazed. I was mearly dissapointed. I have already had to send my printer back to the company and was without it for over a month. I have had several issues with it. First of all, kodak states that you will be using less ink and I find that hard to believe. I rarely use the thing and have not even printed 20 pictures and it was out of ink.
Excerpt: We have owned the Kodak 5500 printer for 6 months. I have replaced the ink maybe 3 times for black and 2 times for the color. The price of the ink is really reasonable. We replaced the black and color this past weekend, it printed for a day and now nothing. My husband figured it to be the printhead. I was unable to locate a printhead to purchase at any of the big office supply stores. So I went to the Kodak site.
Good choice for first all in one printer. But could be better

Excerpt: I had been looking for a new printer and wanted to upgrade to a three in one. (printer faxer copier) I ordered the Kodak 5500 from the infomercial one late evening :) What had really sold me was the fixed pricing on the ink. 9.99 for black refills and 14.99 for the color refill. Comparing that to the costs of ink I was spending on the HP I had, it seemed like a dream come true.
Kodak Easyshare 5500 All-in-One: Handy for photos, not so great for basic printing.

Summary: We bought this printer as friends of ours had raved about how cheap the ink cartridge refills were to buy, and we've had it for about eighteen months. It is really handy to have the capability to copy, scan and fax really easily, although the quality of scanned documents isn't great. I've not used it as a fax machine as yet though, as we don't have a phone line in the room that the printer is in. I have to say, I am not very impressed with this model for several reasons.
Pros: Good quality photo printing, easy to use, cheap ink cartridges.
Cons: Patchy quality of normal black and white documents.
