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.
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: An inexpensive (and inexpensive-to-maintain) all-in-one printer, Kodak's ESP 7250 may not be particularly fast or fancy, but its ease of use and admirable print quality make it a good choice for budget-minded users.
Pros: Inexpensive media, Easy setup, installation, use, Prints from iPhone and some Blackberries, Very good photo quality
Cons: Slow scan times, Paper handling could be better
Summary: Can Kodak's new ESP 7250 really drive down the cost of inkjet printing?
Pros: Well connected with USB, Ethernet and Wi-Fi, Cheap ink costs, unless you use a lot of one particular colour, Automated postcard photo cassette feeder in addition to standard A4 paper input tray, Built-in connectivity options include USB, Ethernet and Wi-Fi, Initial set-up is particularly easy for...
Cons: Expensive to buy at twice the price of some competing models, Printing a lot of one colour will offset potential ink cost savings, Photo quality is quite lacklustre, compared with many competing printers, Quite noisy in operation, No direct printing onto CDs or DVDs
Summary: The Kodak ESP 7250 isn’t far away from being a very strong contender. Even compared with other MFDs its features set is wide-ranging, and the multiple network options and features for wireless phones etc. are very notable, as are the dual paper trays.
Excerpt: The ESP 7250 is near the top end of the price range for home MFPs, but Kodak clearly hopes to make up for this with the printer's low ink costs of just 4.3p per mixed-colour page. This is phenomenally cheap, giving MFP print costs similar to business inkjets like HP's Officejet 6000.
Conclusion: The Kodak ESP 7250 is well-made and easy to use all-in-one device the low ink cost is important in your purchase consideration; even if you see cheaper machines on the market, compare ink costs as well. Some makers’ devices cost less than a new set of inks for the same machine.
Pros: Easy to set up and Wi-Fi 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 as easy to override as we’d like, lacks print quality in auto quality mode, claimed print speeds are optimistic
Conclusion: La Kodak ESP 7250 impressionne pour le nombre de ses fonctionnalités et son coût d’utilisation qui est bas. Mais sa qualité d’impression, surtout pour les photos, de même que sa vitesse pourraient être meilleures.
Pros: Bon éventail de fonctions, compatibilité Ethernet et Wi-Fi, coût d'utilisation assez bas, impression recto verso automatique.
