EXCELLENT PRINTER/EASY START UP/CHEAPEST INK!
on May 30, 2010
I am extremely happy with this new printer of Kodak's. Finally a company has the %&lls to break away from the pack. Basically to make a long story short, I ordered this from Amazon, even though it says ships in 3 to 4 months ( at the time I ordered), it still shipped the very next day. Now I see it is in stock. I pull it out of the box and set the whole printer up with my computer and wireless in about 30 mins. Super easy! It is a very quiet printer, looks great and user friendly. The best part was the set up of the wireless, which after downloading the software for the printer onto your computer, you then turn on your Kodak printer, it searches for all the wireless signals available in and around your house, just like your laptop. you then see the list, pick yours, and you are wireless and off to the races! Done! The printer has worked perfectly for me for about 2 months now. Great quality, and I have done a ton of colorful labels as well. THAT'S NOT THE BEST PART ABOUT THIS PRINTER! What is the biggest complaint about printers, all brands....INK right? The printer companies love to gouge us all on the ink$$. Well Kodak has broken out of the pack and want's to carve out a quality niche for themselves. Their ink is the cheapest in the industry. Not only that but the printer came with a FULL, yes you read right, a FULL set of ink cartridges, not the usual half full scheme. I know that because the printer utility shows me a colored diagram of the ink levels and they were full from the beginning, and I have printed a lot so far and am only half way through the ink according to the diagram. Also, when i went into the the big office supply store to get more ink, I was standing there trying to remember the model number correctly so i could then buy the right ink cartridge. The employee asked if she could help and then told me don't worry about the type of printer, ALL Kodak's printers take the SAME! ink cartridge. Wow! That is simple and easy. And the best part.. an entire color cartridge with a separate black cartridge in the same box, cost me only $24 total!. That's it! Yes! Finally.
I originally went out and bought the typical popular brand name HP printer and took it home. Then I read the reviews...not good. So I took it back, having not even opened the box, and then spent hours reviewing and looking up printers, but one thing sat in the back of my mind. I had asked the printer salesman what printer he would buy and he walks me right to the Kodak printers and said these ones, good printer and the cheapest ink. He said he just bought one for himself. That's what made me finally look up Kodak printers. I really liked the brand new line of Kodak printers that was just coming out over these last several months. It's obvious that when Kodak decided to to break away from the pack with cheaper ink, they then redesigned there entire printer line and came up with a terrific printer with a great modern look, user friendly and easy to set up. Thank you Kodak! Give one of these printers a try everyone. Give up paying an arm and leg for ink and get a great printer to boot! PS - Only 4 our to 5 stars because I have only had the printer for two months. It will have to earn that last star over time. :)
