Great seller, mediocre product, but guess it will do the job

Summary: One drawback is that you can't put alot of paper in it and just forget about it if you are printing something lengthy. It's a VERY small tray, but since I mostly convert something from a scanned document to a PDF and do that more than printing, I was willing to deal with that problem. I went from a Lexmark 9575 which was great, could hold alot of paper AND had many steel parts, which I liked alot.
Summary: I put this printer in the rubbish bin today and was so pleased to see it go. Had it for 2 years and hated it - clunky, clumsy, poor print quality, crap software and paper jams. I don't know if you can still buy this, but if you can, DON'T. The ink carriage jammed so I didn't need any excuses to replace it. Have swapped it for a Canon Pixma MG7150 - my goodness, what a difference! Quiet, unobtrusive, stylish, good print quality.
Summary: From the beginning the print quality was poor and it is now so bad we will have to get a new printer. (About a year old now) The scanner isn't great either. I think this is a dud of a printer, even if kodak cartridges are cheaper it isn't worth it. Like other reviewers mention it's noisy, it jams, can't connect remotely from computers or iPads, and all round rubbish. Bought it because it had good reviews, should have sent it back after opening.
Excerpt: I bought a Kodak Printrer Hero 9.1 as Kodak Printers are famous for cheap cartridges and the name Kodak is a famous name. I am not sure whether I was unlucky or it is a bad product. I had to change it as soon as it arrived. It is highly automated and simply did not function. The replacement was equally troublesome - poor printing, a number of the functions did not work as advertised. I stuck with it for a few months, accepting a poor quality product.
Cons: Not user friendly . Highly automated and simply does not work as advertised .
Summary: I made the mistake of buying the Kodak hero 9.1 printer. Periodically Kodak sent me downloads/updates and one of these updates corrupted my system, it stopped me being able to scan from my computer. I went on to their help line and one of their experts took control of my computer, but after 2 hours he still could not correct the fault. I decided to accept that I could now only scan directly at the printer.
