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.
