    The essence of ease

    Posted .

    In my years of fighting with electronics, I have never had anything that is so easy to install. Follow the simple instruction sheet, install the included software when it tells you to, and you are set to print. Make sure you have the security code for your wireless network handy and you (as I am) are set to print wirelessly. Install the same software on all the computers you want to share the printer and you are in business. Yes, the printer is a little louder than the HP it is replacing - but the aforementioned HP died a stupid coward's death the other day - throwing error messages like candy at a small town 4th of July parade- just had its predecessor did. No more HP for me! If these last few hours are any indication - I am a Kodak crusader from here on.

    Setting up a wireless network printer is not easy!

    Posted .

    The best advice i can give you is: Don't use the set-up disc that comes with the printer. Instead go to the kodak website and download the most current software. The guidelines of this review say not to give websites but i will anyway: www.kodak.com/go/esp5250downloads This download will save you time and i think without it, wireless scanning is impossible. I read a lot of the reviews and most people say you need to hook up a usb cable to scan but you don't with this software. I used the disc and couldn't scan into my computor and then i had to uninstall it completely and start over with the download. I used the chat session option with kodak to get all that done and it was a verry slow process. I think the guy was typing with his nose but he eventually got the job done, i won't tell you how long it took. To set up the printer on your network you need to know the network name and password that you used when you originally set-up your router. I didn't remember mine so i had to reset it, but it was easy to connect after that. Hint: ssid = network name. I had to learn that. Its done now and i can print and scan to the wireless printer from all my computers. I hope this review helps!!

    Perfect for ny needs

    Posted .

    I bought this printer for two reasons. First, I wanted wireless connectivity and this printer provided that. Second, the price was good since it was on sale and there was a trade in program for my old printer. Setup was very quick and easy. It was easy to detect and connect to my wireless network. So far, it has worked perfectly. The printing, scanning and copying features work well. The photos that I printed with the included Kodak photo paper were excellent. This unit will meet the basic needs of the vast majority of users. I find it to be slower than my stand alone HP scanner and it does not have as high a maximum resolution, but the scans are very good. It is slower than my Canon stand alone printer, but the output seems to be on par with it. It is quicker than the Epson all-in-one that I own in all respects. If it truly does end up being cheaper for ink, I will be very happy. I wish it had individual cartridges for each color like my printer since colors never all run out at the same rate and it seems a waste to replace them all. On the other hand, I am sure it is more economical for them to do it this way. I will hold judgment on ink costs.

    Great printer for a muti-computer home

    Posted .

    We have 5 different computers in our home. 2 Macs Laptops; 2 Microsoft Desktops; and 1 Microsoft Laptop. We are all able to easily remote print to this printer. I also love the easy 1 black and 1 color cartridge.

    Great printer

    Posted .

    The printer works wonderfully. I love the fact that it is wireless and I love the fact that I can print pictures right from the SanDisk Micro Flash Card. And the feature I love the most is the wireless capability. The printing quality is great. The color quality is absolutely fantastic! I haven't had the printer long enough to say whether or not the printer will use a lot of ink. Time will tell. Thusfar, I'm satisfied.

    Easy to set up and works great but noisy.

    Posted .

    This is an easy set up wireless and can be done in a few minutes. The printer is easy to operate and the only thing I see as a shortcoming is the excessive noise the printer makes when printing.

    Great quality printer for the home

    Posted .

    My old printer kept shutting off and the connection was lost. I received a coupon in the mail so I figured I would give it a try. I am so happy I did. The unit is extremely professional looking with out the professional cost. Quality of the printing is excellent. The speed is amazing. Very happy I purchased it when I did.

    READ THIS REVIEW!!!!!

    Posted .

    After reading all of the 54 reviews prior to posting this one I must say that some of the purchasers of this printer must be expecting the performance and noise quality of the $5000 Konica. Give me a break! I read that it was hard to take out of the box...really? I read that the set-up was not that easy....really? I read that the print head as extremely hard to install given all of the pressure the one had to use to get the unit to "click" in place....really? I read that the photo prints were of a quality that one would expect from a poor quality printer...really? Maybe I just got lucky....I had NO issue with setting up the printer including taking it out of the box. You don't have to lay the box on it's side just unpack and lift it out! Removing the packing materials as well as the protective plastic over parts of the printer ( which I must say I find a welcome change for the manufacturer to want you to have a pristine looking unit) was a breeze. I am not the Hulk and I didn't have to exert a lot of pressure to get the printhead nor the print cartidges to click into place as some have mentioned. The set up was easy , the photo prints are FANTASTIC, crisp and clear, and the document printing has been flawless. I have owned this product for 5 hours and currently have been impressed! I will set-up the wireless when I get home since I am on a business trip and using the USB cable that I had for my old Lexmark. Any issues along those line will be posted as a follow-up.

    Not impressed

    Posted .

    While the speed and noise of this printer can be an issue, we could have overlooked those issues. Unfortunately, we bought this printer mainly for photo printing and the inexpensive inks. We mistakenly believed Kodak would have provided a quality photo printer. If they do, this one isn't it. This may be a wonderful printer for all other tasks but definitely not photos. On the positive side, it was very easy and quick to set up and we were printing wirelessly from two different computers (XP and Windows 7) in no time at all. The value is terrific if you just need a standard AIO printer and don't much care about photos. It takes a bit to get warmed up and finally print so this wouldn't be very good if you're a busy or impatient person and it's rather noisy so if you have it set up in an area where there's other stuff going on like TV watching, not so good. I would recommend it for the price if you just wanted a good priced AIO but not if you want a fast, quiet photo printer. The other positive is Kodak ink is very inexpensive compared to others.

    You should buy this printer.

    Posted .

    most printers sell the printer cheap and the ink for high cost. kodaks printers are more expensive, but their ink is a great value. i use my printer mostly for business. the intro cartridges lasted quite a while. i started using this early december. the ink lasted until early march. i had read the picture quality was not great. i do not print a lot of pictures but the couple i did were great replicas of the originals. in fact, i could not tell the difference. the printer is a little louder than others. but honestly, unless you are running it all the time, it is easily tolerable. in the long run, this printer runs great. i will save a ton buying the ink. to save money i always had to buy the generic inks for every printer i every had before. the OEM ink is still significantly cheaper than what i use to pay for my lexmark generics. spend the extra money up front. save money later.

    good choice so far

    Posted .

    Read reviews b4 purchase "seems to be a little noisy" is true. Printed invitations without trouble, prints color somewhat fast. Scanned pics easy enough. Set-up was a little tricky called customer service. Set -up online instead of using disc,using windows 7. Like better than old H/P

    Amazing print quality, affordable ink!

    Posted .

    I see this as one of my best buys ever!! I switched to this printer over from an HP Photosmart printer. A full ink refill kid would cost me about $60. With the Kodak printer, $60 buys me 2 or 3 full refills. The photo paper is also extremely well priced. The lowest quality paper is still professional photo quality, and you get 100 sheets of full letter size paper for $6. The only problem that I do have with the printer is the constant paper jams after you've refilled the printer with paper. But once you get past that first sheet, things usually clear up. I've noticed if your there to push that first sheet up a little bit so that the paper feed can catch it, it helps avoid the paper jams. I got this printer on sale for $80, which gave me a lot of extra money to buy extra ink for the printer. I printed an entire textbook for school, plus probably about 40 full size 8.5x11.5 full color photos at high quality, and I just replaced my ink cartriges for the first time. I would definitely say invest in one of these printers, it will pay for itself very quickly depending on which printer you are switching over from and how much printing your actually do.

    Great printer and a great deal-photos, not so much

    Posted .

    The scanner is great and easy to use. It even allows you to save a scanned image as a PDF. The copy function is one button. Simple and intuitive. The only shortcoming, surprisingly, is the picture print quality. Even with Kodak photo paper the colors are muted and with standard paper the quality is nowhre near what one would and should expect from a company that gave the world Kodachrome. Had they done a better job with the photo printing, this would be the best printer I have ever owned. Given this drawback, howver, I would grade the printer a solid B.

    Great All-In-One With Minimal Investment

    Posted .

    To tell the truth I was a bit apprehensive about getting a Kodak printer after reading so many poor reviews. The old printer trade-in credit and the low cost of ink had me take the chance. Let me say, I am won over! Set up was very easy, including the wi-fi (mine was not the easy push button WPS Enabled Router). I purchased this printer to print business fliers and signs and color hand outs. I will also print the occasional photo though, if there is any quantity to be printed I will go to a photo lab as it will be cheaper. I also make copies of business documents and the quality is very good. The speed is acceptable, though I had hoped for a quieter printer. The printed instructions were good and for further clarification I visited their website as recommended (simple but effective). I would recommend this printer to anyone seeking minimal investment cost with low operating costs.

    Good product and a good price.

    Posted .

    I am quite happy with my purchase! The print quality is very good but not the best I've seen. The machine is a bit noisy and runs through lots of procedures before it is ready to print, but that doesn't really bother me. The scanner works well, and you can easily plug in an SD card or other media storage devices and print directly through the printer (instead of using your computer to print). Ink is VERY cheap in comparison to other printers. That is a HUGE plus in my opinion!

    USES INK SO FAST

    Posted .

    This is actually the 4th replacement printer we've had. the first 3 all had some problem of either a paper jam that wouldnt resolve, a bad print head. Now I'm disconnecting this printer and buying a HP. These printers eat the ink so fast. I did a test on my own and found I was able to print 16 4X6 pictures, 30 color documents and then I was out of ink. Once the printer is out of ink you cant use it for anything, cant download pictures, cant scan. The ink may be cheap as Kodak says, but not when you are replacing it 4 times as much. Although Kodak does has OK customer service to a point, they were always willing to try and resolve my problem, but forget trying to talk with a supervisor, there was never one available and nobody had a direct phone number to the corporate office or to a manager, I got placed on hold for 1 hour and 23 minutes waiting to talk to t manager and when I finally got him he disconnected me. Printing is slow and noisy, paper jams constantly, pulls more than one sheet of paper through a good majority of the time, the paper catcher isnt long enough to catch the paper and it always falls on the floor. DONT waste you money on this printer. I will never buy another Kodak product again.

    great printer

    Posted .

    This was easy to install using the Kodak software and it's been a work horse for me. It's my personal printer however I used it extensively during a club function which called for lots of scanning, copying and printing - didn't have any problems at all. Using the included instructions it was easy to get up and running with out problems. Price of the cartridges is good - better then other's I've had. Recommend getting the larger of the black in cartridges if you will be doing a lot of printing.

    The printer is simple to set up. It prints real well. Not the fastest in the world but if it is for home use it is more than fast enough.

    Good all round printer, scanner and copier.

    Posted .

    It does everything advertised and is economical with ink. It is really easy to link up on a wireless network. I replaced my nearly new previous printer with the Kodak 5250. It cost less than than one set of replacement ink cartridges for the printer that I replaced. The photo prints are are of good quality and text prints out crisp and sharp. I am really happy with the Kodak and have had zero problems with it. In addition the ink is much less expensive.

    Nice printer for home printing needs

    So far I have had no problems with this printer. I use it a couple of times a week for small jobs and it does the trick! Set up was very easy and I love that the ink isn't a fortune!
