I recently purchased this printer from a local store because I could not wait for a replacement for my 5 year old HP printer that finally bit the dust. I selected the Kodak ESP C310 because of the supposed ink conservation design of this printer. What a load of misleading adver-hype hogwash. The only reason the cartriges are cheaper than the competition is that they have less ink in them! That is only the tip of the mis-information. I quickly discovered that this printer sucks up a lot of ink even in the BW Draft mode compared to my old HP. Then much to my dismay it quits printing and requires a cartridge change BEFORE it runs out of ink. I know, I cut one of the "empty" cartriges open, LOTS of ink left! probably at least 10 to 20 copies worth. Just recently I discovered that the evil little printer sucks up color ink EVEN IF YOU ONLY PRINT BLACK AND WHITE! I have used up three color cartriges to 7 black cartriges and have never printed a color print. I suppose, to be fair, it does make decent prints, but because of the horrible ink consumption This printer is going back to Wally World and I would certainly not recomend it, or any other KODAK product to anyone.

I'm not tough on electronics -- I've been able to resell my computers and cell phones because I take care of them and pass them along in great shape. That said, this printer is flimsy under the best circumstances. Paper feed is rough and the plastic body and parts feel loose and insubstantial. It lasted 2 months for me with spotty performance before the paper feed stopped working entirely. If your budget allows it, go for something better made.

This printer is really, really worthless. Sure, the ink is cheaper, you just run out of it 4x more quickly than other printers. Also the black ink looks blue. The scanning SUCKS. The scanner decides on its own what dimensions it's going to scan, and there's no way to alter it's determination. There's no easy way to clear out paper jams either, and the printer gets paper jams ALL THE TIME. This thing is cheap, but still not worth it.

This printer will not print if ONE of the two printer cartridges is empty. You should be able to print in black and white if the color cartridge is out, but nooo. Kodak is going to force you to buy an ink cartridge by making the printer not print. I regret ever buying this printer. Won't buy another kodak again.

I have had a Kodak Color All In One Printer (model 5300) since they first came out about 5 or 6 years ago. I love it. When my wife needed a wireless printer for her netbook I picked up one of these on sale at Target for $69.00. I followed the installation instructions and it went together very easy. I then followed the wireless set up instructions all on the screen of the priner,it found my network right away. I entered my network password and I was up and running in less than 30 min. Both of my Kodak printers are far cheaper to use than any other inkjet printer I have ever used. An added bonus for these printers is that they print the most beautiful pictures on photo paper you have ever seen. If you truly follow the instructions and do each step in order and press the OK button on the printer at the correct time when you set it up, the set up is a breeze.

Wow, I had read some of the bad reviews on here but thought Kodak is usually a good product, still wanted to try it and the cheap ink was a huge draw. First C310 lasted just 3 weeks...gave the "Paper Jam" code that so many others have gotten when there is NOTHING jammed. Sent it back and they sent me a new one. Thought it was all fine and dandy, maybe I just got a dud. Nope, been 3 months and now the current one is messed up.

Says it's printing, computer thinks it's printing, but nothing comes out. Had my "techy" husband double check everything, called tech support, still does it. This is a huge problem since I have several online printable tickets for holiday events, coupons, etc and my computer "thinks" it printed them out so they are now void and I can't reprint them, but they never actually printed....and I can't prove it didn't print of course. So I have no proof of my purchases and have to hope whoever I contact believes me and doesn't think I'm trying to get "extra tickets" for free...yay. Thanks Kodak for a lousy glitchy printer. Next time I'll listen to the reviews on here, lesson learned.

The first printer we received wouldn't even make it past step three of set-up. We sent it back for a replacement which did at least set up. However, this one has given us nothing but problems. It is so touchy about every setting that it takes forever to get anything to print. I've called customer service more times than I care to count by this point and not only do you wait forever but the representatives are extremely difficult to understand (and I usually have no issues understanding the help line from other countries) as well as completely unknowledgable about the products and services.

Never will I buy another Kodak. Don't waste your money.

Well... Let me tell you what I think about Kodak and their recent release of so-called money-saving printers.

I would consider myself to be an IT professional and I just need to have a good laugh at the garbage that is being released these days. My only problem is... I can't seem to laugh about it. I always enjoy being able to save money. After all, who doesn't want to save money? My experience with this product has been terrible. I'm sorry to give it a 1 star review, but even that is saying too much for this product. It has been a terrible waste of MY TIME. I am not technically saving money because I am wasting my employer's time playing "CLICK-and-SNAP" with these silly little ink cartridges that need replacing when they are not even being used. In fact, this review is wasting my time.

I AM giving this product a bad review because it is, honestly, just a bad product. But I am also giving it a bad review because of the "fast one" that Kodak is trying to pull over on people. Kodak has taken a very serious turn for the worse in my books. We have purchased 3 (three) of the recent Kodak Printers because they seemed like a great deal and ink was cheap. Good deal, right? Saving money? WRONG. All three... YES, all three of these printers continually eat up the ink. I am serious. THESE PRINTERS USE COLOR WHEN YOU'RE NOT EVEN USING COLOR... AND GUESS WHAT? THEY ALSO USE BLACK WHEN YOU'RE NOT TECHNICALLY USING BLACK. I have witnessed this first hand and I'm telling you do not waste your time and money and these printers. I am seriously disgusted with the plastic trash that is selling as if it is worthy of even being called a product.

This printer seems ok, but one major issue I can't seem to get help on anywhere. My home network has 2 wired pc's and 2 wireless laptop pc's . I followed the instructions to hook this up to the network via my Valet wireless printer. That part worked fine,in fact I was able to use a few different methods successfully connecting to the network. The wired pc's printed to the printer via the wireless connection through my Valet wireless router just fine . My wireless laptops are another story. I tried everything possible,and read enough tech help to make me puke. I did get the laptop to access my wired pc and then access the printer through it,but it was not a stable connection and every time the laptop gets rebooted it goes away.and trying that connection method again is only successful maybe 10%.
Basically,in my several years of working on computers and building computers I would have to give this printer a bad review. I have not even tried to hook up the blackberries or ipod touch yet,my head is about to explode as it is.
My best guess to the problem is the Kodak Software connection utility is junk. I updated the software and even updated the printer firmware. That did not help. The connection software just does not work from the wireless laptops,nor does windows built in "add a printer" software work.
I am not perfect,and I may have done something wrong, but I am good at figuring out pc issues, and I spent literally 12 hours over 2 days working on this with no real success. The average home user with less knowledge would have real issues.
So my advice is this....... if you want this printer for a wired connection,or a wireless connection to wired pc's, you are in good shape getting this pc. If you have a wireless laptop, forget it. I will come back and update this if I find a way to fix it or Kodak properly updates their software.
Amazon has the best price on this, as usual. Everything else about this printer is fantastic, and I look forward to saving money on ink for a change.
