A great value printer with cheap cartridges - why wouldn't you!!
14 May 2013
Excerpt: I purchased this printer from Amazon. Right from the start it was easy to use - set up was quick and simple and print quality is good for home use. I mainly use it for text documents and scanning both of which it handles really well. I have printed a couple of pictures, although only on normal paper, not photo paper and the colours were what you would expect from Kodak - good balance and nice skin tones.
Summary: I Love my kodak printer and scanner ,quiet,clear printing fast and easy . Photos are great as you would expect from kodak so glad i brought this one ,came next day too most definetly recomend it i had a printer years ago was so noisey, andf remember i had to purches a scanner seperate,much more simpler now and with wifi ,fantastic
Summary: I did my research before purchasing this printer as I had my old Epson Stylus for years and I wanted to make sure I chose the right one. I was tempted to buy a Kodak because of the low ink costs but was also looking for a wireless printer with good quality prints for all my family's needs.
Summary: I've had several printers, HP Photosmart 1200, Canon BJ-210 and most recently the Epson SX130. All of them were reasonable on the print quality but very expensive on the ink. I had enough, the Epson was cheap to buy and within weeks I had spent more than the cost of the printer on the inks alone!
Summary: I hate buying new printers but bought this after reading many reviews. Really impressed with the design and functionality;I downloaded the firmware/software directly from the easy to follow Kodak website and the installation,both in connecting to my WiFi,and setting up the Google Cloud account went like clockwork following the on-screen guide(I confess to not liking to read handbooks/instructions!)and was up and running in about 30 minutes.So top marks there.
Summary: After a week of use I am very happy with the machine, the quality of photo's is pretty good on unbranded paper, to claim as good as Snappy Snaps might be pushing it but I've yet to buy Kodak paper. It was as simple as any printer I've owned, and I've had a few, to set up. 10/12 minutes max.
Summary: Before deciding to buy this product I went to a major retailer and had a good look at all of the printers they had, narrowed everything down to a) What I wanted the printer to do, and b) The price range I was able to pay, I had almost decided completely that this printer seemed to tick all of the right boxes but for once gave myself time to review the two products I had looked at.
Summary: I purchased the Kodak Hero 5.1 printer after months of deliberation (well, I AM a woman)! At first, I considered a higher spec, and found the online guide provided by Kodak very helpful in seeing clearly what each printer had to offer. But, my techno son had a look at various printers(it's so annoying, isn't it!), pointed out all the pros and cons and said 'what's wrong with the Hero 5.1? Much cheaper, but still does most things you want'.
Summary: First off I don't see the problem with the by now legendary arm: Lift the top scan/copy assembly and the arm extends into the recess. Move the arm out of the recess to close the assembly. That's about it and much more secure than some other printers without such a support. Assembly is easy following the instructions in the printed sheet and on the LCD display. This involves installing the printer head and the ink cartridges by pushing them in until they click into place.
