Summary: The old saying of 'you get what you pay for' is born out with this printer, I have had mine for 18 months and during that time it has been more wrong than right, every time Kodak did a so called update to the software the printer failed, either through problems with the printer itself or with the Wi-Fi connection, now I have a printer head problem that Kodak tell me cannot be fixed but they are willing to send me a reconditioned one for almost the price of a new one.
Summary: This arrived requiring a new printhead. Luckily it was within warranty and Kodak replaced this. Unfortunately the printer is making clunky noises and drags through 20 sheets at a time and for no reason so pretty awful purchase and mis-sold.
Summary: I used to have a HP Photosmart for over 5 and very happy with it. When I needed to replace the printer I thought I would try the Kodak as it advertises low ink consumption. Biggest mistake. Worked ok intitially although print was never really good. I didn't think it was economical on the ink as first cartridges ran out rather fast. 3 months after purchase nothing but problems.
Summary: Over the years I have had many many printers. This is without doubt the absolute worst I have ever come across. It has failed to connect wirelessly to my computer so many times I have given up with it and resorted to using a lead. It spends ages and ages thinking about whether to print or not. Sometimes it won't print something for hours!!! There are lines and marks across photocopies, and I have tried everything to get rid of them.
Summary: I confess to being initially suckered in by this dreadful printer. It was easy to set up and, when up and running, seemed to produce decent enough prints. And then the problems started... As other reviewers have commented, the printer just died on my one day. The quality of service from Kodak was woeful and when I finally got a replacement printer back, the print quality is dreadful, the machine seems to grab a random number of pages depending on how it feels (nothing to...
Infuriating - Dont waste your time with this printer

Summary: I have owned a Kodak printer for 5 years, Kodak Easyshare 5100. While their low spec printer, it served me very well and had really low printing costs. Recently It started to eat up ink very quickly. So I decided it was time to replace it To qualify the comments which follow, I am technically literate and work in the technology industry. I can fix most products myself. But I refuse to accept a faulty product, especially when it costs so much money in the first place.
Very disappointed - be veray wary about buying this.

Summary: I have had a good and trusty HP840C for over 15 years and it is a great little workshorse, but I am now doing a lot of work for a local charity at home and was concerned about the amount of paper I was getting through and wanted to be able to print double sided. I also wanted a scanner/copier so I could share documents more easily with colleagues.
Summary: Please be careful when purchasing this machine if the machine is faulty as mine was Kodak only replace with refurbished machine which arrived weeks later only to be faulty and on asking for a refund was told they do not do refunds only replace still waiting after 6weeks for a machine that works.
Summary: I purchased this all in one printer just over a month ago and it has now stopped working. Prior to this everything was fine and I was generally happy with the printer although the quality of the materials isn't fantastic and it feels very flimsy. When it stopped working I contacted Kodak's online 'live chat' support which was easy. However the advice they gave was exactly the same as in the manual, so not much point really.
