Summary: I bought this printer about a year ago to replace a previous Kodak printer. I had 3 sets of ink left which is why I opted for another Kodak (mistake). I have just replaced this with a HP Deskjet 2540 and this knocks spots off Kodak.
Summary: I've owned this printer for just over a year. To begin with I was really pleased, it was easy to set up and the print quality was good but.... Just after the year was up I noticed the same problems others have mentioned, the print quality declined and photos started to get lines through them.
Summary: The printer worked well for a couple of months. Then I started to get problems with the quality of the print. These problems have continued and I cannot get a good print out. The printer has now jammed when I installed cartridges. This is the last straw and I will not be using this printer anymore.
Summary: Too many bells and whistles and not enough basic printing. Nearly every time I use the printer it has an error, usually "printer not responding". If left on standby it does not print until you turn it off and then on again.
Summary: Printing is fine, when you can get it to feed paper through... The paper trays are flimsy and insubstantial, and the photo paper (good quality, branded) will not feed through. Have to load one sheet at a time, then it jams in the machine more than 60% of the time.
Summary: I bought a Hero 7.1 in February 2012. The first printer could only be switched on and off using the mains switch. But all other functions worked perfectly. After about 45 minutes on the phone to Kodak call centre they agreed to replace it. The replacement printer arrived within a couple of days.
Summary: A word of warning if you are using XP: don't buy this printer! The print and copy functions work fine but the scanner causes my PC to hang and become completely unusable; the only escape is to switch off the computer at the on/off button.
Easy connection but let down by poor photo printing

Summary: I bought this printer to give me wireless printing facilities and provide a printer capable of printing good quality images to enter into photographic competitions, as well as general document printing.
