Advertising for this printer is very misleading
on December 15, 2011
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.
