Decent value/cheap ink

  • Summary: I have owned one of these printers for several years. It suits my needs as a home-owner/parent. However, I would not recommend his printer for a business where time is of the essence. Great, frameable pictures on any kind of paper. Replacement ink is the cheapest around, and you don't break your bank by printing pictures. I actually bought a second one for my son to take to college with him.

Great for everything but printing pictures

  • Excerpt: We bought this printer to save money on the cost of ink. It works great for printing out doucments and scanning things into the computer and even making copies but to print a picture off the computer is a nightmare. Comes out with lines going through it. Almost looks like its running out of ink or something. I love this 3-in1 for everything else and the money it saves with ink.

I was disappointed that the ink doesn't last long.

  • Excerpt: I bought this printer because it was suppose to have less expensive ink, which it does but have been disappointed that the ink does not last very long. when the indicator says the ink is low it has already stopped printing that color. the ink is easy to install. The attachments were flimsy and the catch try fell off and would not stay on the first weekk.

Kodak ESP All In One Printer Eats Paper

  • Excerpt: Well I purchased the Kodak All In One Printer in October 2009. I was so excited only to find out it is not what it is cracked up to be. I have found that 8 times out of 10 it eats the paper, so I am dealing with paper jams a lot. It does not print high quality photos either. You would think coming from Kodak that it would print beautiful pictures. I am disappointed. I waste a lot of good paper. It will not hold a lot of paper in the tray either.

Decent printer, but nothing to get excited about.

  • Excerpt: I originally bought this printer mostly because I bought into the hype about ink price.  I really was tired of paying $45 for ink, so to only pay $15 seemed like a steal.  Overall I have not been disappointed with this printer, but there are some drawbacks that you need to know about. First, the printer is quite noisy and takes a long time to get started.  This might not be that big of a deal, but it is noticeably noisier than other printers I have had.

this printer gets a mixed review from me

  • Excerpt: The Kodak ESP 3 all in one printer gets a mixed review from me.  I love that this unit is a printer, copier, scanner, and photo printer all in one.  I also love that I bought it for under one hundred dollars and the ink cartridges are inexpensive.  However, I am very disaapointed with how often I have to change my ink cartridge.  I have to buy another black and white or color cartridge once a month.

Don't love it, but it gets the job done

  • Excerpt: My husband and I bought this printer to replace our old printer/scanner setup. We chose this one because it supposedly had a small footprint, printed high quality photos, and was cost-effective. But I'm a little disappointed. First of all, it's not really that small. It's the size of our old printer, but with a scanner. That's nice, but our old scanner was very slim and hardly took up any room, so this printer isn't a huge improvement.

Cheap Ink. Good for students. Printing OK.

  • Excerpt: The Kodak ESP-3 printer is a good bet if you just need cheap printing and aren't looking to impress anyone with it.  I use it at college because the black ink cartridges are only $10, and obviously my professors aren't too concerned with the quality of the print job.  They just want a legible paper to read. The printer itself tends to be a tad slow.  The Kodak software that comes with it is awful.

Great printer but saving on ink is it true?

  • Excerpt: I bought this Kodak all-in-one easy printer to save on ink. Since I have had this printer I have had to replace the printer head (in which Kodak did it for free), and I had to replace my ink every month and a half. I do not print or copy as much as a company or anything. Just recently I had a problem. I tried to print all my documents in black ink because I was out of color ink. Nothing would print.

I bought into the commercials...

  • Summary: The ESP-3 series paper jams frequently. The feeder will grab multiple sheets of paper frequently. 10 months after purchase results in Printer Head Failure. Printer use minimal to medium. Printer Head costs 1/2 of what the printer's retail value is. I'll spend a little more on ink and less on headaches in the future.
