Yes, the ink is cheap but you get what you pay for in the long run.

Summary: The printer was initially very easy to set up and the print quality is pretty good. However, once it is set up, if you ever have to change any aspect of your network in the future, that is when all of your trouble will begin if you aren't the most tech savvy of people. All was wonderful for the fist year, but I upgraded my router and have not been able to print wirelessly ever since. I followed the instructions to the letter. I called customer service.
Summary: Nightmare to set up and connect via Wi-Fi (in fact only managed Wi-Fi hook up once in 6-months!). Heavy user of ink. Cartridges may be cheap but it seems to print a dozen or so sheets before each cartridge needs replacing (either that or my wife is a somnambulist printer!). And if you run out of colour do not think you can print grey scale or vice versa. If it does not two functioning cartridges it will not do a thing!
Summary: It was fine at first, then the blue colour stopped printing. We tried a new ink cartridge but this didn't help so after lots of emails to kodak they send us a new colour printhead which resolved the issue. Now the black has stopped printing and again a new ink cartridge hasn't helped so I guess we will need to get a new black printhead.
Summary: I bought my Kodak esp 3.2 at beginning November 2012, from Ryman Stationery via Amazon - came within a couple of days of ordering. Installation not too difficult, but gave up trying Wi-Fi connection and instead resorted to USB cable (not supplied by the way). From beginning had problems making it print photos, even using photo paper thinner than what the machine is designed to take (up to 200gsm), but runners just not picking up the paper; worked perfectly on very much...
Summary: Yes it is good value for money but after a relatively short time I was prompted to replace an ink cartridge. This proved to be a false report. Soon after, the print function stopped, reporting a paper jam. There was no jam. After a period of several months of non use I carried out a test print, and behold it started to print, but after about 6 lines of text it stopped and reported a paper jam. I then contacted a Help line. BEWARE. It cost me £19 to get an answer.
