Summary: Have literally just put together my kodak hero 5.1 and my first impressions are that this is a good purchase. Set-up was pretty straight forward and took about 15 minutes to get out of the box, install and print my first photos. Picture quality of the photos is also very good, with excellent colour reproduction. All-in-all a very good printer and looking forward to using it more over the coming months.
Summary: I am by no means a computer savvy person. I normally renew my computer and associated equipment every four years so that should give you some indication of the level of skill and knowlege I have when it comes to computing. I guess I would update my equipment more often as I like new technology but it's the thought of having to set up and familiarize myself with new equipment that puts me off.
Summary: Are printers now in the top ten most weary-inducing products to purchase? They are reliably unreliable, so buying one every two or three years now seems unavoidable. And it goes without saying they always break on a Friday evening just as you hit print on that job application or vital document that you must submit for Monday.
Summary: I must admit my first impressions of the printer are very good. I personally could not see a problem with the arm that props open the lid whilst changing the cartridges, (this works as the arm would on the bonnet of your car). I found this useful, (just handle it carefully). I do agree with the the previous reviewer on fitting the ink cartridges as you effectively have to fit the print head yourself and then load the cartridges.
