Not What I Expected

abcizdaman, CNET
12 September 2012
  • Summary: I wanted a Kodak, because they advertised how much less their ink costs. That was a few years ago. Well their ink may cost less, but you sure need to replace it more! I hardly use the printer and have to replace the cartridges once every 2 months.. stupid! The print quality also isn't up to par with today's day and age. I think next time I'll be getting a laser printer as opposed to an ink one..
  • Pros: Good scanner capability and easy to use, okay price
  • Cons: Ink needs replaced too often, low quality printing

will probably NEVER buy from Kodak again!

  • Summary: I use to love Kodak printers, but now having second thoughts on ever buying another one. I bought a printer from Kodak last year and used it just a handful of times, before I knew it, the printhead went out after I wasted 4 NEW full ink cartridges which is NOT cheap. Once the printhead goes out or it tells you to "clean printhead" you have wasted all your ink.

Kodak USED TO MEAN QUALITY not now

VictorianNonsense, CNET
2 February 2012
  • Summary: Not so long ago Kodak was a great brand, not anymore. I'm sure many people bought this item remembering that, thinking that they could trust good old Kodak. WRONG!!
  • Pros: Ummm I get to throw it away now???
  • Cons: *It regularly doesn't scan images properly, *You cannot use the scanner if you are out of ink, thanks guys, *Its default settings are to use color ink to do black and white, *Runs in background always looking for updates, *Crappy photo printer

Don't buy one used!

  • Summary: Not sure if they're still making these printers but I just had to chime in. This printer is engineered almost as badly as the old British cars and Lucas electrical products. If you run across one of these printers at Goodwill for $5 or even in the FREE bin, DO NOT TOUCH IT if you value your sanity. I bought one in March 2010 and it jammed on the VERY FIRST SHEET OF PAPER. I mean, it shredded the paper into compacted wads deep inside the machine.
  • Pros: Ink is priced right
  • Cons: Mechanically junk

Great Picts, easy set up!

  • Summary: As soon as I got the printer I set it up which was super easy. Printed some picts of my kids and the color is fantastic, I can't wait to use the scanner to scan in some older picts. Great product especially for the price!

Great Idea.. Needs to be made a little better

kimsnoopy, Ebay

  • Summary: I love the fact that this is all in one. Just today I had a paper jam.. and when I opened up the front flap where you feed the paper.. it broke!! I have not used the scanner part yet.. I do not use printer/scanner all that much. This is the 2nd time I've used printer since I purchased it almost 2 months ago. So I would say quality of this is under par.

  • Pros: easy set-up, low cost of replacement cartridges, Kodak Name and history
  • Cons: Inability to retain it's IP address, mediocre print quality, very loud operation, poor performance

Great printer, copier, scanner

maryannb8630, Ebay
11 June 2010
  • Summary: I have never used a scanner before I got this machine, so I don't know how the copies of documents especially are supposed to come out. But this printer, copier , scanner seems to be doing all I need it to do. It works seperately from my computer. Quality prints and the price was reasonable. I love the ink supply. I was using a very tiny printer before and was paying $20.00 more a pop for my ink than I am with this one. It is a great machine.
