Summary: Had this Printer about 2 years now, was OK at first but after a year needed a new print head, year later print head now gets stuck, Kodak tell you to remove any obstructions, there are none, managed to free the head a couple of times but now getting fed up so am looking for another printer. basically I got this printer as the ink was cheaper but in the long run you are not saving any money. In a Nutshell I would not bother with this printer.
Don't ever buy a kodak printer, Hero 7.1 useless !!!

Summary: It's a fallacy about having cheap printing costs.When black ink gets to 20% it refuses to print even with Kodak cartridges, it's even worse with replacement cartridges.It never prints more than 100 pages before running out of ink. I wish I'd never bought it.
Summary: The quality of image produced by this printer is particularly poor and I strongly regret purchasing it. If you are looking for images that are remotely close to photo quality then do not by this printer as the quality is terrible. The best you can do is clean the print heads and recalibrate the printer each time you want to print an image but even then the reproduction level is truly appalling.
Summary: doesn't print to a consistent quality, can't use any other function when an ink tank is showing low so if the colour tank is low you can't print in black and visa versa the tanks run out even if you don't use them, suspecting this we replaced a colour tank in January by early March the tank was registering empty having kept a record of the prints we had printed only 11 sheets in colour!
Summary: Bought this for my wife and she wanted one that would print good photos, doesn't even print all colours, have changed the inks still no joy, have been through all the systems for cleaning and adjustment, no blue ink coming through ,was grainy at first now none.
Summary: I bought this printer about 2 years ago. It has caused me nothing but heart ache and frustration. It seems to take 5 minutes to get through the cartridges and the print quality is terrible. Every time I print something I have to clean the print head and it still comes out looking terrible. I would not advise anybody to buy this piece of rubbish.
Summary: This is the worst electronic product that I bought. There is not even a single day that passed without repenting about this decision. It worked well for two months. After that the printer never gets connected to the computers. I tried all option and including connecting using cable and USB. Still no luck. Its useless and waste of money. I don't know whether I could take legal action against the company who sold this product.
Summary: Do not buy this printer if you want to print photos - everything comes out with a green tinge. I tried very hard to fix the problem doing things like changing the print settings on Photoshop. I was very disappointed - my previous printer was a Kodak esp and I thought I would upgrade and treat myself after its printer head went. Fortunately, at least the ESP printer lasted for last academic year when I was doing gcse photography and printing a lot of stuff.
Summary: I bought this because I was fed up with Epson heads drying up and writing off really good printers. Two months abroad will do it. This one, allegedly has replaceable print heads BUT any form of contact with Kodak is impossible. No wonder they have gone down the pan. I does not seem to me to be cheaper on ink. I do not use it much and do not do photos but it is always running out. The whole cartridge thing is daylight robbery, ink costs nothing.
Summary: I wish I had returned this heap when it was still under warranty. It is forever jammimg, paper gets stuck around the rollers, I've tried Kodak, normal and very expensive papers. No difference. The 6x4 photo tray is unusable, it jams 50% of the time. I spent a very long time on the phone to a Kodak help line person who could not resolve the issue. Yes, the ink is very well priced but it chews up so much paper that it negates any saving! Back to Canon I think... Avoid!
