Excerpt: Kodak has broken ranks with a series of printers that use a single colour ink cartridge to reduce the cost of ink refills. The ESP 7250 sits in the middle of that range and offers print, copy and scan utilities.
Summary: The Kodak ESP 7250 comes at a reasonable price, has built-in wireless and optional Bluetooth, and creates very good prints. It is not the fastest of printers, however, and, like the cheaper 5250, can take a while to warm up; and an automatic document feeder would be a welcome feature. But the wireless was easy to set up and I like the separate tray for photos.
Pros: Wireless networking, Low-cost ink refills, Good photo quality, Duplex printing built in
Cons: No automatic document feeder, No fax, if that bothers you

Summary: In the final analysis, while there are issues on the way the device uses ink to get top quality prints using the paper sensing technology, you can get some outstanding print quality out of the 7250. For run-of-the-mill use, or when you want quick and dirty output the all-auto set up is certainly a time and money saver .
Pros: Easy to set up and WiFi connection. Photo print quality, ”Laser-like” text output, Good scans, Price, Low cost ink system, Auto duplexing built-in.
Cons: Slower print speeds than claimed, Dot Replacement not available in borderless printing, Auto print settings not easy to override, lacks print quality in auto quality mode, claimed print speeds are optimistic.
Excerpt: This easy-to-use inkjet printer prints quickly and produced quality printouts
Pros: Prints photos quickly, Settings are easy to navigate, Cartridges are easy to replace
Cons: Slow at making copies, In tests, it automatically separated our test page of photos in to two separate photographs. Many of the others offered you this option but did not automatically do so in case this isn't what you wanted, Makes loud sounds when you're using the control panel, There's no print tray flap to catch printouts
Conclusion: Kodak does a good job providing a mix of easy to use features along with good overall print quality and low cost ink for the ESP 7250. And with the suggested price of $199.99, it’s still in the affordable range, especially when you add in the long run costs (ink, paper).
Pros: Easy to use software, Good print quality, Good mix of features
Cons: Slower print speeds than advertised, Out of paper error (with paper in cassette)
Excerpt: (1 items) Kodak’s ESP 7250 multifunction device (color inkjet printer, scanner, copier) offers home and student users a fun assortment of features for a midrange price. Its low ink costs are appealing, but this device is otherwise an average performer. The ESP 7250 is easy to use from the get-go. You can install it via USB, ethernet, or Wi-Fi; and completing the driver and network installation processes takes just a few clicks.
