    Great printer...great price!

    Posted .

    After doing much comparison shopping online, I went into the store expecting to buy a completely different printer. I was a little leary about the reviews that this printer recieved, but so far my own experience has been a good one. The deal Best Buy has going on with trading in your old printer for $50 off the new Kodak printer is what changed my mind. I was just going to throw away my old printer, so being able to save more money on top of the sale price was fantastic. I would suggest printing out the full page coupon from this site before going into the store. The actual setting up of the printer was very easy(my wife did it all). We were expecting that the wireless was going give us some problems...but none at all. My wife did get a little frustrated with adding the printer to our computer...but probably from not being to sure of what we're doing. Once she "accidently" figured it out, everything has been smooth sailing. The printer is a little noisy when first warming up, but no more so than our last lexmark printer. Black and white printing is very fast and pretty quiet. The color picture prints do take a while longer but turn out very well...very clear and crisp(unless my picture was already grainy). It is still too early to tell how long the ink will last, which I did buy extra of right away just in case. But the price of the ink is already less than our last printer.

    Nice Printer for home use but.....

    Posted .

    So I purchased this printer on August 30, 2011 to replace my HP all in one printer. I bought it because it was on sale with a printer recycling coupon of $50 off the price and also because we all know Kodak is supposed to be a good brand. It's been not even 3 months and the black ink cartridge ran out a few weeks ago so I guess that's not bad however, I just replaced it with a brand new black cartridge I bought from my local best buy store and I am now getting no black ink on the page. I calibrated and cleaned the print heads and printed a test page 3 times to no avail. All the test page printing did was waste my color ink which caused my color ink to finally run out as well. I just found out the biggest con of this printer: IT DOESN'T LET YOU PRINT WITHOUT BOTH CARTRIDGES! This is insane, how can I not print black and white text without my color cartridge? For this to be an "office" series printer, don't most businesses print in black and white? so you are telling me if I hardly ever use color ink, I cannot print without color ink in the printer? Big negative! However I will say customer support was great. They walked me through trouble shooting and even shipped me a replacement color ink cartridge free of charge. All I have to do is ship back the old color cartridge once the new one arrives within 3-8 business days. Overall, the printer is not a bad buy, just beware if you are not going to use a lot of color ink I just think it's a waste to buy a printer that doesn't allow you to print with a full black and white ink cartridge without a color cartridge. Just my 2 cents!

    ok but could be better

    Posted .

    GOOD news first. This was the easiest printer setup I ever experienced in nearly 30 years, as far as software is concerned. My optical drive did not work and I could not use the software CD. I found what I needed on the Kodak website, downloaded it, and it worked the first time with my Vista Home Premium (pick that download, of course). No additional ‘kernal’ or driver files needed. Future driver updates are available for automatic download. Great. It starts up and shuts down quickly. Printing is fairly quick and good quality. Runs well on USB 2.0 cable. Auto sheet feeder and flat bed scanner. Infrequent users who buy this printer on sale (I paid 89.99) will like it. Now the BAD news. The quick setup instruction sheet was big and awkward and needed more words to go with the pictures, which were not always easy to understand. Installing the ink cartridges far in back of the interior was like reaching into the mouth of a hippopotamus. Actually a real hippo could have opened wider and made it easier. Why didn’t Kodak design this with up front ink cartridge slots, like a brand name competitor? The rear, vertical rack for blank paper feels flimsy sliding up and down. Be gentle with it. The LCD display does not move. The color ink seems to be consumed as fast as the black ink even if you seldom do color printing. But then Kodak did not brag that its machine used less ink, only that their ink is cheaper. Hmmm. Frequent users might be unhappy with that. As an infrequent user I can live with this machine until it gives up the ghost, which hopefully will not be soon. I hope the ink pan has more capacity than my last brand name printer, which stopped working only because the pan was full. Servicing it would require sending the machine out of town and the cost would be more than this new machine’s sale price. Instead of polluting the landfill, I gave the old brand name printer to Good Will for no cost and still felt guilty about it. My penance is to write this review.

    Pleasantly surprised at the Quality

    Posted .

    I got tired of paying a lot for ink and ran across this printer that claims to have a low cost of ownership. Just about for the price of new ink for my Canon printer, I could have an entire new printer (almost...). And then you have to figure in the long-term savings of cheaper ink. So I went ahead and did it! I set the printer up to work wireless - easy setup - worked perfect! I was surprised the setup was so smooth. Since I purchased the printer because of the low cost of printing, I expected the quality to be mediocre... boy was I wrong! The quality was much better than my expensive Canon printer and the print speed was faster as well. We've been using it for a couple months now and love it. Works well, looks sharp and has been overall a good performer. We have not had to replace the ink yet, but I look forward to only needing to spend $10 when the time comes. Negatives: It has required a power off and back on a couple times to reconnect it to the network. But I believe this was a problem with my router and not the printer. I replaced my router and have not had a problem since.

    Very Satisfied with My New Printer

    Posted .

    Okay so I was having trouble with my old HP printer working properly with my new windows 7 laptop. The printer still worked properly and I never had any issues with it in the last 10 years. Sad that I had to let it go. That said. I shopped around and read the reviews and of course looked for the best deal. This printer seemed like a good choice, good reviews, great price and easy to set up. I was printing pictures in no time and the software was easy to navigate and I love it. Plus I can take stills from my videos and print them. Ultra sweet. One day I will use the fax capabilities, that was just an extra for now. I used the trade in and got it on sale. Can't beat that. Plus the ink is half of what I used to pay for my HP ink in a combo box. Happy so far. Good luck hunting for your next printer.

    Nice printer overall for the price

    Posted .

    For the amount of money spent on this printer, it was worth the money. The only complaint that I have regarding this printer is the amount of noise that it makes while printing. The only concern that I had after my ink ran out was finding available ink in my area. The stores were saying that Kodak was being phased out and the company wasn't going to be making the printers anymore.

    This printer is great. Best printer EVER!

    Posted .

    This printer is excellent. It has all the essentials that is needed such as a document feeder so that you can print more than one page at a time. Not all printers have that feature! The pages come out clear and crisp all the time. The ink is always dry. This printer is really easy to use. Just follow what it says on the screen and you will be alright. The only downfall is that I wish the scanner had higher dimensions so that I don't have to go to a store location such as fed ex for photos. The scanner is really clear and perfect. Looks very proffessional. There's also a numbe you can call to speak to a Kodak customer service representative on the cd rom that it comes with that you can call to help you set up the printer if you have trouble. They are very patient and help you every step of the way. I haven't been able to use the fax yet or the photo but I'm sure it's a no brainer. The printer also has cartridges that are low cost only $10 which saves you lots of money.

    Awesomely easy set-up

    Posted .

    Opened box, followed the simple directions, and in less than 45 minutes I was printing easily from our 2 computers (both Win 7 and wireless). So this is really just a review of the start up. As a small business owner, I couldn't be without a printer for more than a few hours, hence my excitement of a seamless transition from dead printer to this little beauty. I'll be back to complain, if I have to. But what a great beginning!

    The printer works and prints well and is user friendly. The ink is cheaper, but it seems to use it quickly. It is possible we just don't do enough printing.

    Don't use with Dell Inspiron

    Posted .

    This Kodak printer worked well, except that it constantly lost communication (within a day or less) withe a new Dell Inspiron laptop using the USB and the only way it worked was to reinstall the software. Dell tech support said it was a 3rd party software issue and Kodak tech couldn't offer any permanent solution. Took it back for an H which worked great. Good printer, just may not work on all Dells. Also would like to print black/white only without putting in color cartridge, but I guess all printers demand that you use both.

    Great multi-function

    Posted .

    I have to admit I was a little skeptical about purchasing a Kodak printer as I was unfamiliar with them but the ink cost sold me and I couldn’t be happier. Out of the box I noticed how sturdy this product is, it doesn’t feel cheap like other multi-functions in its class. Printer/wireless setup was a breeze. Print quality has also exceeded my expectations. Scan quality is great and auto feeder only speeds up the process. The iPhone/iPad print app is also a nice perk. The only con I had with this printer is that it is a little noisy but its other qualities really make this a non-issue.

    Very good printer for the price. Excellent value.

    Posted .

    The ESP 2170 was easy to set up, and connection to my home wireless network was easy and quick. The print speed is good, text print quality is good, photo print is great! Best of all, I figure the cost per page is about 8 to 12 cents, depending on type of printing, (BW, color, or photo), which is much better that the 14 to 20 cents with my old HP. Want my advice? Buy it.

    Not a good Wifi printer

    Posted .

    We purchased this printer primarily for the Wifi capability as my family are all using laptops at this point. Our old HP printer is connected to a desktop PC via USB cable, and to print on it from one of the laptops required the desktop to be constantly powered up to act as a print server. The problem with this Kodak printer is that it is CONSTANTLY dropping from our Wifi. The only way to 'wake' it is to power cycle the printer, which takes several minutes. I have spent hours on the phone and chat sessions with Kodak and I'm not able to resolve. The only reliable way to print I have found is via the USB interface, but it takes a LONG TIME from the time you click 'Print' until the printer finally starts printing. So my family is now using our old HP as it's a much faster printer. So this Kodak is going back to Best Buy, and I'm going to get an HP Wifi printer.

    Don't buy Kodak

    Posted .

    I Bought an esp2170 in September, and it worked fine for several weeks. I had never tried to use the scanner or copier, but a time arose when that became necessary, and much to my chagrin, the copy/scan mode created a black image. Every time. Spent a long time on the phone trying to get it resolved with a dude that could not speak English very clearly, and after about an hour of him reading the manual to me ( I guess he assumed that I couldn't read it myself), he agreed to send me a replacement printer. As it had only been in use about two months, I thought I might reasonably expect to get a brand new printer. They sent me a refurbished printer. I never got to the point that I could see if the refurbished printer could scan or copy, because it wouldn't accept the ink cartridges from the original printer. So I called again, and again an outsourced employee with poor English skills read the manual to me. Finally it was decided that I needed a new print head. Print head arrives, nothing changes. Still an error message. So back to the phone. Now I'm about three weeks into this, awaiting new Ink cartridges this time, and wondering what Kodak has done with all the money they saved by outsourcing their customer service. Clearly they did not invest it into their product design or manufacturing. I'll never buy a Kodak product again.

    Perfect Printer for the Home

    Posted .

    After my Epson printer informed me that it would no longer work for me, I turned my attention to reasonably priced, practical printers. After comparing prices, reviews, and estimated "ink cost" I was very pleased to single out the Kodak ESP Office 2170. The machine was on sale, very easy to install (hard wire) my desk computer and my wife's (wireless) laptop, and looks great on my computer table in my den. The printer itself is VERY EASY to operate and turns out clear, sharp prints of, both type and pictures.

    High ink consumption

    Posted .

    The setup was easy and wireless connection was steady. However, the printer is very high ink consumption. I bought the printer on last Christmas and had replaced the black ink twice up to this point. The "Lowest total ink replacement cost" is a misdirection.

    Great printer for the money.

    Posted .

    Great printer for the price paid which was less than $90. Print quality is good, but a little slow. Does have a nasty habit of dropping off the network now and then even though it show its present on my computer icon. Only way to get it back is to restart the computer...a very easy, but never timely fix.

    Good printer, hard to connect via wi-fi

    Posted .

    This is a good printer, but I had a hard time trying to connect printer to my laptop. Everytime I connected it, it would work once and then lose it's connectivity. Finally I had to contact Kodak ( India ), and they talked me through it and now it works fine. Print quality on pics is great.

    Great wireless printer.

    Posted .

    It was fairly easy to set up. Printer speed for a inkjet is better than most printers. The fax capabilities along with being able to make color or black and white copies and also to use the fax without having to use the computer is a plus. I have had this printer for almost a month and a half and have been well pleased with it. I haven't found anything that I didn't like about it. The cost of ink is great compared to my old printer.
