Summary: I bought this printer online after my other printer (same one) died after 11months. After 2 uses it too stopped working. Not impressed thus far with the overall life span of this printer. I am supposed to ship my dead printer back, paying for the shipping of course, and they will send me another one. Hopefully it will last longer than the previous two.
most costly per page printing I have ever encountered.
25 July 2012
Summary: I bought two at the same time, first and last one. #1 printed three photos, out of ink. #2 failed to print very clear, lines and skipped. Kodak sent me a new printer head, printed three pages said I was out of ink. replaced both color and black. Printed five charts then said I need new ink. Replaced both black and color cartridges printed almost one page then skipped to printing strips and light spots. Kodak sent me the second head.
Summary: This is the most costly printer I have ever came across. Replacing the ink cartridge after only five or six pictures is common. Want to get one for yourself then go ahead and waste your money. If it is not broke then it is out of ink. Will not print if only one cartridge is out. you have to buy more ink. and more ink and more ink. I just got relief, I took a shop hammer, beat the **** out of it, put the parts in a box with kodak as the return and the sender.
Summary: Poor choice for home use because it is an ink hog with cartridges that run out quickly, making cost per copy much higher than advertised. Also, if any of the 3 colors in the single cartridge runs out, you're done printing everything, even in black only. The printer won't allow any printing until you've replaced the empty color cartridge, which may still have 2 of the 3 colors full. There is no draft printing option (which would use less ink).
Uses way too much ink, making it not worth the price.

Summary: Constantly needs ink. Will not print if one of the cartridges is low. I have a brand new black ink cartridge loaded and it will not print my black and white document because its out of color ink. I'm not sure where the color ink went since I print everything in black and white. Does not have an option to use economy printing to save on ink. Avoid.
Summary: If you wish to print a drawing or picture as is (no change in size nor content) DO NOT BUY A KODAK PRINTER. Once it senses a picture, it refuses to let you print it as is and you must print it as a picture and that screws up the size bit and at best gives you a fuzzy print. While the ink cartridges may be less expensive than other printers, its obsession with "print pictures" is its downfall. Get an HP and it prints as is always.
I am disgusted with this product I did not get it set ...

Summary: I am disgusted with this product I did not get it set up strait away as I was having problems with my computer eventualy I had to buy a new computer well the man from the shop I bought the computer from tried to set my printer up as I am 73 years old ive set them up in the past but as I am in a lot of pain I thought ide except some help the gentleman tried several times and couldn't get the inks to register the black ones did but not the colours so naturaly I asked for...
Summary: Simply the worst printer I have ever owned. Cartridges last half the time they should "running out of ink" Controlled by a chip that calculates the amount of cycles run through before telling you it needs to be replaced when it doesn't. If you print draft all the time like me you are well and truly robbed. I took the top off the cartridge to see how dry the ink sponge was and it was sopping wet with ink. Kodak are deceiving the consumer by doing this.
Summary: I can't advise how irritating this printer is! Paper continually jams in it, (1 out of 2 sheets won't go through at all and I end up putting on the fire!) Also it looks as though it's unrepairable, as you can't take it apart to get at the parts. Don't bother!
