Kodak Hero 5.1

Milesius, CNET
17 May 2012
  • Summary: I got this unit for my family for Christmas 12/20/11 last year from Target. On Fri 5/11/12 I never used that scanner before but when I did, I got lines across the print I just scanned. Customer Service is a joke, especially the Chat part if you decide to chat with someone.
  • Pros: Prints wirelessly, Prints are great if you use Kodak Paper
  • Cons: scanner is garbage at any dpi

Not recommended.

BluMal, Amazon
13 November 2014
  • Summary: I bought this in early 2012 for uni and at the time it was considered a decent all-in-one printer. However it seems the device itself cannot handle the multiple features thrown into it. Just note that I have spent most of the time connecting the printer with a USB lead and not the wireless features.

It did nowhere near the recommended numbers of pages per ink cartridge

Pawan, Amazon

  • Summary: Worked okay for the first few months, but then started doing incomplete prints all the time - black missing, or colour missing.

Clint, Amazon

  • Summary: Seemed like the perfect package with the reasonably priced printer, low running costs and all in one. Within 4 months this printer was broken, the print-head stopped printing anything magenta so that rendered it useless.

Kodak Hero 3.1 wifi printer

Calsknits "Cals Books", Amazon
20 June 2014
  • Summary: This only lasted me 6 months. I had a new printer head replaced within that time by Kodak, the service for that was fine and they sent me a new one as soon as I told them the problem I was having. The reason I replaced it was the paper kept getting stuck and I just couldn't use it.

The worst printer I have ever bought

N. Hoath, Amazon
11 June 2014
  • Summary: I've had this about a year and have tried to soldier on with it. I have never had so many issues with a printer as this one. It loses the standard settings for every single document I print, even if I'm printing a set of documents, so I have to keep going in and reapplying defaults (like duplex).

Kodak Hero 5.1

Mrs. S. James "Sandra James", Amazon
4 June 2014
  • Summary: Thought this printer was going to be economical.......sadly not. The print head needed replacing after 13 months. (just our of warranty) Now a year on and it needs replacing again. So that would cost me £45. The inks might be cheaper but the printer should last a bit longer.
