First one fell apart, cheap ink but short life, must have color cart to print black=FAIL
on January 20, 2010
I will be fair and post positives too....prints nice photos, wireless setup worked no problem, easy to figure out.
Negatives. I printed one photo and nothing but black and white thereafter, black ink ran out and printer refused to print ANYTHING at that point. No problem, whatever, I bought more. A day later color empty notice pops up. What??? No problem, I'm only printing black anyway. Set for black only, no go. The printer will NOT print at all unless you refill the color cartridge as well. Don't tell me, Kodak, that you do not possess the technology to print black ink out of a solo black ink cartridge. THe first one I purchased had pieces falling out of it and had to take back.
1. First issue is the color cart is being used to print black at all
2. Second issue is color cart is being used WAY too much to print black/white docs.
3. Third issue is I cannot print black/white docs without a filled color cartridge, once color runs out, time to buy more ink.
If you are mainly using printer to print black and white pass on this printer.
