Conclusion: The Kodak HERO 7.1 All-in-One Printer leans more towards home than office needs, but it can easily serve in the dual role of home and light-duty home office printer. It prints, scans, copies, sends email, and lets you print through the cloud.
Pros: Prints and scans. Standalone copier and email sender. WiFi and Ethernet. Low claimed cost per page.
Cons: Subpar output quality for text and graphics. Slow print speed.
Summary: Like many of the Kodaks, the Hero 7.1 has stunning running costs. Overall though, it’s an MFP that gets close, but without quite making it. The all-round features and performance are decent, but no more than that.
Excerpt: The Hero range of all-in-one printers all benefit from built in Wi-Fi and low running costs. They all make great colour and monochrome prints for home users. Still, the Hero 7.1 distinguishes itself from its cousins in key areas that make it great for home photo printing .
Pros: High quality photo prints (for a consumer printer), touchscreen LCD, dedicated photo tray, low running cost
Cons: Printing a little slow, integrated three colour cartridge
