    Kodak Printer Ink

    I have a Kodak ESP Office 2170 Printer, purchased a few years ago to replace a defunct Epson, with the recommendation of a helpful Best Buy associate. Kodak was suggested as a printer that would not cost quite as much to keep in ink. I'm not sure how much less the Kodak ink cartridges are vs. other major brands, but I do know that I save 15% off the shelf sticker price with a Best Buy Membership. Biggest peeve is even though I set my printer to default to black only, after a time I still have to replace the color cartridge anyway. This is not Best Buy's fault, and I think all the printer manufacturers do this just to sell more ink. Would I recommend this cartridge to a friend? Only if said friend owned a compatible Kodak printer!

    I've owned a Kodak inkjet printer/scanner for years, and the quality has been comparable to other name brand printers. But the price for replacement cartridges was what initially attracted me to Kodak. This two-pack set of color and black ink cartridges saves a few bucks over buying them individually. And it's inevitable that when the black dries up, the color will soon follow. Sadly, I was told that Kodak was going to stop manufacturing ink cartridges in the near future. I'll either have to stock up on a bunch of these or look at retiring a pretty faithful printer before its time.

    I recently acquired my KODAK ESP Office 2170 All-IN-ONE Printer and I love it, I have have to purchase only 2 packages of this combination COLOR/BLACK ink for this printer. The ink cartridges are so easy to install are so economical I really am thankful that Best Buy carries an assortment of them. Whether I decide to purchase the color individually or in the combo package I have a choice to make. I really prefer the combination pack mainly since it 's more economical and it lasts longer.

    PRINTER OR CARTRIDGE?

    I'm not sure whether my beef is with the ink cartridges or the printer itself. My wife and I are retired and only do casual printing, nothing heavy-duty. We never print photos! However, I probably use 6 or more of the Kodak black and white and color cartridges (yes, 12 cartridges) over the course of a year. Outrageous. I'm presently shopping for a new and more economical printer that won't be so costly to use; so hopefully this will be the last review of this product for me. The cartridges are easy to store and insert for use, print quality is fine, but cost is crazy.

    My printer required servicing on line. Turned out the printer and the print head both needed to be replaced, also the new ink cartridges are different than the ones I had recently ordered. I went on line with Best Buy, ordered the new cartridges, a black and a color with black, had them shipped to my home using Best Buy's 2 day free shipping program. They were delivered to my home in 2 days, awaiting the delivery of the new Kodak Printer and Print Head. Didn't leave home. Great Service. Thanks, Best Buy!!

    I have a Kodak printer that works great. However, trying to find ink cartridges is quite difficult these days - retailers who used to carry them have discontinued their availability. Thank heavens for Best Buy. Obviously, they understand how to meet the needs of us who have not given up on our Kodak printers! Kodak 30-2-Pack Ink Cartridges Multicolor/Black

    I use these Kodak ink cartridges infrequently as I don't print all that much off my PC. When I do want a nice color rendition of a photo I have, this ink gives me a very accurate color reproduction, even on non-Kodak paper. It lasts a long time, but I only buy when I need it so it doesn't grow 'stale' as is not the case with fresh ink. Best Buy's prices are the best around for this ink, better than all the other office type retailers. And, it's always fresh in stock when I come in for it. Who could ask for more?

    Kodak Ink

    I've been using Kodak ink for approx. 3 years now. The print quality is great, I use the Kodak ESP 2170 printer. the ink quality is great, I get a good amount of printing from the standard ink cartridges, the cost is far less than other brands. The key to saving ink with the Kodak printer is to NEVER turn it off, let it go into the sleep mode. Use the draft setting when ever possible able This setting will give you good quality, it won't be as dark, but very legibly. This is how you save ink.

    Every time I have used this product it works fine. The only issue is that I do not understand why I only get 20-30 color pictures at a time. The first time they claimed it was because when you first buy the printer they only give you a limited quantity because they sell the printer for such a low cost. I believed it once but after buying 6 combo packs and getting the same result I knew what time it was. I will use the printer for the time being and upgrade very soon to one I can afford the ink!

    I consider myself a value shopper.I was in retail for over 40 years and my ability to ferret out values made my organization #1 in the nation.But this is not about me, before I bought my printer I checked every resource and hands down Kodak was it. combined with Best Buys unbeatable ink pricing five years later I know I made the best choice.By the way I have more than one printer and that is why i buy all my ink there.That's the reason they call it BEST BUY.(DUH)!

    I use very little ink. I bought a Kodak printer because I don't need anything fancy and the ink was cheap to replace. However when I do go to print something I end up having to buy another cartridge. The color doesn't seem to "run out" like the black, but I can't find just the black cartridge. So I end up spending $30+ for a black one and leave the color unopened. Anyone know someone who needs 5 color cartridges?

    upon opening the boxes of both cartridges, the inner metalic package was unsealed on both. I was concerned that might have effected the ink, perhaps drying them out or had been used. But both seemed to work fine. Kodak ink cartridges have never produced the number of sheets they are quoted at however and it uses colored ink it seems even though i print almost totally in black & white. not fault of Best Buy though

    It took me a long time to discover the downside to Kodak's cheap cartridges: When you use the printer, the color cartridge is used even if you're printing in black and white. These cartridges go very quickly. Unfortunately, unless I want to buy a new printer, I am stuck with this predicament until Kodak (in bankruptcy) stops making cartridges, which I believe is 2017.

    Kodak is still the cheapest ink

    I left HP several years ago when the cost of ink just got too high. At that time Kodak sold their black carts for under $10 and the color for under $20. They have gone up lately but hasn't everything? I find it's still cheaper to replace the ink in my Kodak All in One than an HP or it seems any of the other brands AND the quality of the print is as good or BETTER!!

    Kodak products are excellent, and the prices are very competitive. Unfortunately, the company is not financially sound. The ink cartridges are scarce--most stores either don't have any shelf stock or only have a few on-hand. For anyone considering a printer purchase, I'd recommend a product sold by a different, more solvent manufacturer.

    Have been using Kodak printers and ink since they came on the mrket. The ink is great and does give you far more for your (less) money. I am sorry that Kodak went belly up, and have been sending for parts to repair mine when it needs repair. They continued to make the ink for everyone that loves their printers. (Wish that they Where still in bisiness.)

    I've been using this brand for about a year now and I'm totally satisfied with the quality print and how long it last. Prior purchases elsewhere caused me multiple trips to the store and poor print quality. Best buy also has the cheapest price for this product. A plus is warming rewards for you purchases so it keeps you coming back for more great products.

    GREAT price on the ink to work on my Kodak printer. The problem isn't with the ink, it's the fact that the cartridges don't last very long. I have no other choice than to purchase this product of ink for my printer - thank goodness that Best Buy had the cartridges on sale! I will NOT be replacing this printer with another Kodak product.

    Giving it some thought, I've come to tha realization that computer printer ink is one of the most expensive substances on earth. Think of it: a few drops, just enough to fill a hen's ear, prints maybe two dozen full page color sheets and then it's $35 and run back to the store to buy some more.

    I have an old Kodak all in one that I just never seem to get rid of so I reorder the cartridges through the Best Buy ink program. 15% discount and free next day shipping. Kodaks ink prints nicely but don't seem to last as long as i think they should. However I believe that's a complaint about most any brand.
