I bought this a year ago and it promised to use the lease amount of ink. Well it ate up ink cartridges and printed out faded photos. Way to go, Kodak. Then, last week, it started only printing blank pages although it had two FULL ink cartridges. I went through the troubleshooting online and when nothing worked was told to contact Kodak. They told me there was nothing they could do since it was out of warranty except sell me a refurbished one, get this, for $79 without the printerhead and cartridges. No thanks! I will be buying a highly rated Epson printer and never a Kodak printer. No wonder they are going bankrupt. Garbage.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
I was excited to try out this printer. I remember that the Kodak printers were a big deal on The Apprentice and I would love to buy affordable OEM ink. This printer has some great points, and then some not so great points:

The Good
- Wifi works well so far
- Ink is cheap compared to HP ink
- Built in card reader
- Cheap

The Bad
- Poorly designed paper tray, in fact one of the worst I've seen
- Color quality on photographs is not as good as on my HP

Although this printer has all of those good things going for it, in the end I just didn't care for the color quality in photographs. For schoolwork, reports, etc the color is just fine, and this would make a good all around family printer, but I would just stay away from printing photographs. The two biggest benefits of this printer is the built in wifi and the cheap ink. If that is important to you, I would recommend this printer.

I bought one of these things, and it lasted about two weeks. Kodak sent a replacement (without the printer head); however, it only lasted about two months. I'm on my third 5250, and having problems. It's going into the garbage, and I'm getting a Canon.

Also, the printer uses more ink than my previous printer (Lexmark), and the quality of photo printing is terrible.

A piece of junk. Stay away from it.

You may wonder how I can say it is flawless and then rate it with three stars for noise. If that's the case you should know that I think noise is a sort of frivolous attribute to rate a printer on.

That being said, the printer was incredibly easy to set up. What was a pleasant surprise to me was that I didn't even need to use a USB cable in the setup process. I had it out of the box and printing wirelessly from two separate MacBook Pro notebook computers in less than 20 minutes. I've printed photos, documents, and coupons and I feel like this printer is an outstanding value. The colors are accurate, straight lines are crisp and true, and it does it all quickly. I have several friends in the market for new printers and they are waiting to see how this printer works out for me over the next few months before they purchase.

So far, so good. Based on other reviews I've read, it seemed that Kodak may have stumbled out of the gate with their printers. I think they've worked out the kinks because this is the best printer I've ever owned (and this is #6). I decided after my last HP leaked black ink onto my desk and carpet, it couldn't hurt to try something new. So far, my decision seems to be a good one.

I'll be making updates as I get to use more features and burn up the ink. If it saves as much money as its supposed to while working as well as it has been, it will be a dream come true.

UPDATE:

Still working flawlessly. The ink cartridges don't last as long as ones in HP printers that I have owned but they don't cost as much. And this has been far less trouble than all of my experiences with HPs.

I strongly recommend that buyers avoid, at all costs, Kodak printers!

They claim that they are inexpensive to operate - They are actually more expensive then my old Epson. The ink dries out within 2 months (even without use).

Their customer support is dysfunctional and out-sourced - within 6 months of purchase, the display went out. Kodak categorically insisted that it was due to low ink (NONSCENE, they had the audacity to give such a ludicrous response.) I needed ink soon and purchased it and installed it - of course it didn't resolve the issue.

Another issue is that the paper feeder design is poor at best. No matter how the paper is fanned or prepared to be inserted, one must manually feed each and every sheet by hand, if not, the printer stops and sends an error message.

When I called them again for the paper feed issue and display and was told that I didn't know how to load paper and that they never told me that the display was out due to low ink. They lied again. I can only assume that they do this routine till your warranty expires. Luckily, I don't print that often.

I just purchased new cartridges, brought them home and installed them. Kodak's error screen then kept changing its mind as to them being full or empty. And after it excepted that they were full, I started to manually feed each sheet of paper in. After 20 copies or so, I determined that it was best to end the pain. I don't care for mental anguish so I ended it all. My evil Kodak 5200 series printer now lays in pieces on my front walk, brand new ink cartridges ($50) and all.

From now on, it is much less expensive and aggravating to go to Staples website and send them the documents for printing, then drive there for pick up.

In the 4 months I've owned this printer (purchased from RitzCamera through Amazon), I've had on-and-off problems with print quality. Missing text, streaks, too light, too dark. Every adjustment I'd make according to Kodak specs, would cause it to print for a few days and then, same old problems. I've requested a new printhead from Kodak and will update my review once it's received and installed. Am hoping for the best!

I still can't believe I am still using the start-up ink that came with the printer and it is only half empty. I purchased this about a month ago and have printed photos, my work for college, letters, project components for my grandson's school project, and loads of other things. The ink use is amazing. I think this printer is making it's own ink somehow!!! Compared to my Lexmark that I replaced with the Kodak, the Lexmark would have alread gone through $60.00 in ink and I would be half through with a second set of cartridges. It is well worth its weight in ink! I wish Kodak had gotten into the printer business a long time ago. The quality is beautiful. I compared a photo I printed with one I had printed at a local store and I couldn't tell the difference. The printer is easy to use and the software is user friendly. The only thing that I wish was different is the software program itself. The printer has to be turned on to use any of the software functions, but that is really minor. I just love the printer.

Even if you do not print anything, it will complain the ink cartridge is empty after 2 months. And, when it determine that the ink cartridge is empty, it refused to scan document which do not use ink at all.

I bought the Kodak 5250 printer based on advertising claims of saving big bucks on printer cartridges -- what a lie! I now believe any favorable reviews must only be the fabrication of company spin and PR. I am lucky if I get 50 pages per color cartridge, and you can't even print Black without using color. Calls to Support were absolutely NO help. They only advised me to keep the printer turned on all the time and to clean my printing heads. All of this, and the print quality is terrible as well. I must use "best" quality selection to even get something that is readable. If the company comes out of bankruptcy, I'll never buy another Kodak product of any kind!

I love this printer. Those using the new Windows 7 Operating software, this printer is compatiable. When you read the instructions on how to install this printer whether your connecting to a Computer or Wifi Network; follow the Macintosh instructions in the book.

Cons: Two Downs sides,but it shouldn't stop you from getting this Printer.

1. A USB Cable is not included if you want to connect the printer to your PC, that should have been included. But, you can just use your old Printer's USB 2.0 cable or buy a USB 2.0 cable at your local retailer.

2. Whether your using the Wifi or connecting the printer to your Pc, you must install the entire Kodak All-in-One printer installation cd on all computers that will use this printer. Like another commenter on here said(in my owns words), "It sucks you have to install the whole installation cd even if your using Wifi."

Note: The Printer's Speed does pick up after you use it. My printer, prints fast.

Note/helpful hint:

I used this printer on two Dell Studio 1555 Windows 7(home editon) Laptops; I did the Wifi step.

Another helpful hint:

If using a Laptop; Check your DSl internet moddem box if it has the word Wireless on the top, you DO NOT need to buy a Router. However, still call your internet provider if your unsure. I made that mistake of buying a router, but I was able to get a refund. Just have the name of your internet box and your Internet Security key code; it's best to call your internet provider for the correct Name of your internet box and Security Key code. If you don't remember your Security key code you made; the internet Provider will help you reset the Security key code. Write down your Internet name/Security key code and put it in a safe place. If all laptops are using the same DSL internet box you will need to put in the same Internet moddem box name and security code on all of them for the Wifi step to work on all laptops. I only used this printer on Laptops, however the same info can still apply to desktop PC's. I hope this infomation was helpful.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!
