Summary: If you do not use Kodak photo paper the prints are crap, they look faded & washed out. I normally used Fuji film multijet photo paper in my HP 2575 all in one, the prints were as they looked on screen, bright & sharp. Even with the print quality at best with the Kodak using other photo paper the quality of the print was poor. If you used Kodak paper in the printer, with it set at best the print quality was as good as the HP at normal quality.
Pros: it has wifi, looks good,cheep ink
Cons: print quality poor, instruction book is only good as a door stop
Summary: a fantastic printer at a great price, i thought, but it has taken 2 weeks, multiple ink cartridges and discussions with Kodak and a new printerhead to get this machine working perfectly. 'nearly new' machines seem like a cheap way to buy a very good printer, and i do like to kodak machines, but the printerhead is the key part and you have no way of knowing if the one you are getting is any good or not. a replacement for this was £25.
Summary: Sometimes I'm a little disappointed with the print quality especially if it is in draft mode. I have an HP printer which is better for documents but it didn't have wifi connection so I went for the kodak option.
Summary: It worked flawlessly up until about a month ago. I use Foxit as a pdf reader, as it is a very small and unobtrusive program, and have never had a problem printing from it. Then - about a month ago - the printer refused to print pdf files from Foxit (which makes it pretty useless as a printer). I uninstalled the Foxit program, downloaded the latest version, installed the new one - no joy, no print.
Summary: Kodak Hero 7.1 I had been looking for a good quality photo printer for a while and after alot of looking around decided that with a make like Kodak I could nt go far wrong. Unfortunatly I experienced a few problems - Firstly after fiddling around for a week trying to get it printing I contacted Kodak help. Apparently there was a fault and I will say they sent me out a new printer (without waiting till the old one was returned which was great).
Summary: Woeful printer, it scans ok, it prints pictures ok but ask it to print on anything other the Best setting and it bands badly and on draft it is all but unreadable. It may have cheap ink but the print quality is shameful. I spend at least a couple of hours a week live talking with India. Unreliable, poor print quality, cheap ink at face value.
