"I WILL NEVER BUY A KODAK PRINTER AGAIN!! GARBAGE!!"
18 February 2013
Pros: None. Even the "inexpensive ink" is not particularly inexpensive.
Cons: Ink cartridges often malfunction, have to buy another cartridge. 2x this year, I spent a hour on the phone w/ India to resolve an unfilled cartridge issue. Rep insists its a printhead problem and I am welcome to buy a printhead replacement for $35.
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.

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).
Cons: -Poor print quality -Jams frequently, even with high quality paper -has a sleep mode, but usually does not work. It's wide awake 24x7 most of the time, even when PC is in sleep mode. -refuses to print when it *decides* either cartridge is out of ink.
