    So easy to use

    Posted .

    I had old family photos to scan and store. I was blown away with the ease of use. You can put several photos on the flatbed and scan at once. You then just click and can improve color, get red eye out, etc. then click on a file to store them in and you're done!! It's so amazing, I had a cannon flatbed scanner that was very complicated to use, would take hours on end just to scan and store. With this Kodak you can do multiples in just a very few minutes. I had a photo I truly loved but it looked as if it were in a foggy haze, when I scanned and then clicked on the improve color button I could have cried, it abslolutely took out all the haze and was clear as a bell. I almost cried!! Plus it's wireless and we have 3 desktops throughout the house and it works great. Everything is made with Plastic parts now days and I'm very careful with the paper drawers because they do not feel as sturdy as I would like, but otherwise the printing, copy and scanning features work beautifully. (Have not tried the fax feature yet). I've only had it a full week now, so I'm not sure what the long haul will bring. It is a bit noisy at startup, but no big deal... no more than any other printer. And the ink is much more affordable. OH and one other thing, pay attention to the paper catcher, it has a little flip-up piece to catch the paper, if you don't flip it up, it will shoot the paper copies in the floor :) I got this on sale at Best Buy and has been worth every penny for what I use it for.

    Great product for the price, but only for home

    Posted .

    Purchased the ESP 9 two weeks ago (08/08/2010). Could not beat the offer of $149 plus the $50 rebate for trading in my 9yr old HP3650 (I paid $69 back then). So far I am impressed with the options I have upgraded to for the money...wireless setup, scanner, copier, fax, photo printer, and pigment ink which will not fade (archivable). The wife factor is a 10; she's extremely happy particularly with the wireless printing and the pigment ink. My thoughts on the unit are that it is well built and sufficient for the home, print quality is more than acceptable, it is great However; this unit is definitly NOT suited for an office setting as the speeds stated by Kodak seem far fetched. However, for the home the speeds are fine (for me!). People complain about the noise, but I consider it acceptable. I do agree with the rest of the folks with the paper tray feeling very cheap, almost brittle. But the rest of the printer feels and looks very solid. Setup was a breeze and the only hic-up I've experienced is an error message saying my black ink cartridge is not recognized, eventhough it is the original cartridge that came with the printer. Seems like it came dislodged. I removed it and re-installed it and voila, problem fixed. So far so good.

    I cautiously love this printer.

    Posted .

    This is my 2nd ESP9 printer. I bought the first one in Feb. 2009 but did not purchase the service agreement from Best Buy. I should have. I dealt with Kodak for problems - could not get the jammed paper error message off - Kodak replaced w/new printer (May, 2009); then Kodak replaced the printhead (Oct., 2009) After these problems the printer worked like a charm through May, 2010 whenI had the same jammed paper error message problem which forced me to buy a new printer. I did a lot of research on other all in ones: HP, Brother, Lexmark, etc. None of these matched the price, ease of use, or quality of photo prints that I can get with this Kodak ESP9 printer. Best Buy had it on sale and this time I purchased the service agreement. I can also continue to use the new ink cartridges that I had stockpiled. So, knowing that I may encounter some problems, I will either be able to get them fixed or at least replaced. When this printer is functioning properly you can't beat its features: easy to set up, easy to replace cartridges, store quality photo prints, wireless connection, and faxing are the reasons that I will continue buying Kodak printers.

    Good All in one 4 the price..

    Posted .

    I purchased this model a couple of years ago and it has been a nice addition to my network. As the other reviewers have stated it is loud when it runs. I don't use it for large printing jobs so the speed has been adequate for my use. I was tired of running through expensive ink cartridges and chose this printer to save some money. It has saved me a substantial bit of money in ink - as advertised. My biggest complaint is that every 7-8 months the printer starts printing poorly. I run the print head alignment, cleaning tools and will work for a while but then stops printing text all together. This has happened twice in the two years I've owned this printer. The tech support is excellent. The first time I called they immediately sent me an new printer and had me swap out the old one for the new one. On arrival of the new printer it was damaged during shipping and so I used the print head that came with it. I installed it in my original printer and this took care of the problem. Eight months later the same thing happened again. I called tech support and this time they just sent me a print head. This took care of the problem. I also had to do a firmware update and now the printer works beautifully. I think Kodak has a problem with these print heads since they don't even question the problem just send you a new one free of charge. The draw back is your out of a printer for a week. Another great feature I've enjoyed is the WIFI ability. It's been very reliable and my family can use it from anywhere in the house. Because of the great support from Kodak I have to say that it's worth the purchase. Overall I am satisfied with this product.

    Great 3-1 for personal use.

    Posted .

    We purchased your kodak esp 9 for our office cause ours went down and we use the fax machine regularly. Well since receiving your product and hooking it up, we have experienced NO CONNECTION, NO DIAL TONE, and have not been able to receive or send any faxes. After calling a tech to see what could be done, he said its already on line. and somehow it mysteriously started to produce faxes. Here we are again and still the same recurring problem. I feel the ESP 9 is a wonderful machine for home use or even a small business. However, I dont think its performance capacity is useful for larger corporations that uses its fax machine as one of its primary sources of cummunication.

    7 OUT OF 10

    Posted .

    Overall this is a great printer if when you have to have a good quality print you have some time to wait, or if you need only so so quality print it is super fast. I most of the time only need draft quality so it works out great for me. I am having a few problems it jams rather easily if you are trying to copy from the top feeder, and it has told me several times that my paper tray is empty when it is not. I still have not been able to get my wireless set up but im sure if i call kodak they will be able to help me so that is not an easy set up, The features are super and this is a very easy machine to use for printing, scanning and faxing. Overall works great for my situation and is well worth the ink savings.

    BEST PRINTER!!!!

    Posted .

    AMAZING print quality. I would definitely recommend using Kodak photo paper because I had HP glossy photo paper and compared the two and kodak beat HP by far! The colors were more crisp and vibrant and not as dull as HP's photo paper. It comes with a built-in duplexor which is awesome. Most ALL printers normally make you purchase it seperately. The ink is cheap! That's the main reason I went with Kodak! (Next to its print quality) The scanner is really nice. You can feed mulitple pages using the upper tray or you can place the documents on the flat bed scanner. The only thing wrong that I can see is the software that comes with the printer. It seems to have minor glitches but all in all its a pretty cool easy program to use. Also, the "State of the art paper detection" is LOUD. It automatically detects what type of paper as well as what tray the paper is in. Which is fine, but when detecting where the paper is at its really loud. I would definitely recommend this product. It is pricey at $284, but its worth it in the long run!

    Quick feedback

    Posted .

    Am compelled to provide this quick feedback for potential buyers, as I was agonizing over the mixed reviews. I've read that the printer is noisy; well, unless you plan to use it in the bedroom where someone is trying to go to, or stay asleep, I would not be overly converned about that. It makes audible sounds, but I am focussed on function. I've read about the control panel not working properly; well, during installation I chose to use the "web install" option - over the provided disk - and the program proceeded to download the latest version (be advised: it is a 408 Mb download) and proceeded to update the printer's firmware during installation ... and, I suspect, that the firmware update seems to have addressed any control panel glitches. The text and photo quality are excellent, and I love the separate paper feeders for regular letter sized paper and for photo stock (5 x 7 or 4 x 6). Faxing and scanning work fine. I'll provide updates - pro or con - as necessary.

    WORKS great! - easy wifi setup

    Posted .

    After having many different printers at work (automotive repair) we were going through alot of ink! decided to try the KODAK line with their simple and very cost effective ink program. Had two of these printers for a year now - both work great, both are hooked up for WI-FI, easy to use, easy to operate. REally like the seperate photo paper tray - makes it simple to print photos! The bad: picture quality (photos) not as nice as my old HP unit, - (colour saturation), speed is a little slower than other units in the past, and a little noiser than I would like but its acceptable. there is a slight lag-delay when sending a job to printer - sleep mode? never checked settings to see if this would change or not, not really that bad of a wait The HELP screen is very helpful, instructions on setup are pretty obvious and clear - especially if you have set up other printers in the past. The cd installlaion disc is useful and has nice programs I have recommended this to anyone who listens.

    I Like It

    Posted .

    This replaced an older HP printer that never really worked well from day one. It would drink ink at an unbelieveable rate and constantly had compatability problems. This new Kodak works fast and has a nice easy to read and use screen. As someone else stated, it is fairly noisy but that is on initial start up. I needed the faxing capability and this sends and receives faxes without any problems. I had a stand alone HP fax that had constant error problems. The Kodak, no problems so far. The initial set up took over an hour and a half due to dial up connection and old Dell Dimension computer. The machine will power up when needed and shut down when not used which is also a nice feature. Another nice feature is the ink scale that is always on display on the screen so you never guess how much ink you have left. I haven't tried printing any phots yet though. On sale and $50 old printer trade in brought this down to $129.

    Well worth it

    Posted .

    I've been watching the price on this item for a while now and when it dropped to one that was in my reach I was all over it. This printer boasts a number of features that I've come to fall in love with. The scanning is crisp and clean, the printing (especially photos) is brilliant and I appreciate the LCD display. I've wanted so badly to get away from a wired solution so this was an easy decision for me. It can be a little clunky and noisy at times during initialization but that wasn't enough to deter me. Replacement ink price is a huge buying point for me especially since I was coming from an HP all-in-one that was setting me back nearly $60 for color and black cartridges. The software that accompanies the printer is pretty good too! Photo priniting and editing couldn't be easier. All in all, this has been a great purchase so far and I would recommend it to others.

    Great Machine!

    Posted .

    We have wanted a Kodak wireless printer for a while now. We were tired of spending so much $ on ink. This machine makes clear photos, just like professional. We have not needed ink yet but it seems easy to replace. The only thing that it is a little complicated to figure out the fax part and when you want to make a photo it gets a little confusing when you want to choose the smaller photo paper versus the 81/2 x 11. There are alot of directions and doors and it takes getting used to if you have normally used just a printer. But overall, it is worth the price and it is top notch!

    Not the best printer I have ever had

    Posted .

    I bought this printer because I wanted a full function printer with cheap ink costs. Well this printer fits that bill but it has its drawbacks. The print speed is very slow compared to other printers I have had. Also, this printer is very loud when it prints...It makes alot of clunking noises as it pulls the paper in and the it is just overall clunky. The touch controls are neat but not super high tech. The printer is big and not very modern looking and just plain looks cheap. I bought it online and the picture didn't really show how big and clunky it really is. The print quality is OK but not phenominal. I probably would not recommend this to a friend. I am not sure if the cheap ink makes up for the other drawbacks. If you do not do a lot of printing like me get something else.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Better than HP, Epson, Canon, Lexmark

    Posted .

    It is not often that something works this easily. This is the least complicated printer I have owned ever. The old HP, Canon, Epson and recent Lexmark printers I have had were a waste of money but they were bought before Kodak offerred this model esp9. Last year we bought a kodak 5300 and it works so well we bought this new one for larger prinf obs and direct faxing. Also bought one of the new esp9's for my senior inlaws and they had no trouble setting it up and this is their second printer too. The large display is so easy to understand that my 4 year old seems to have it figured out well enough to print without much trouble. The HP and lexmark were not kid friendly like this new top of the line kodak model. Here's an attaboy/girl and an A+ to the people at Kodak for bringing this printer to the market. If you offer a PC in the futuer as well engineered as your printers I will replaceour apple, compaq and hp with it as they reach the 2 year update or replace stage. Jim

    Best Printer

    Posted .

    The printer looks great. The paper trays work great. The ink cartridges are a little larger than the HP printer I had and are only 1/4 of the price. The only trouble I had with this printer was hooking up the wireless It would not detect any networks. If you enter the wireless information manually it works perfectly. I have had several other printers mostly HP and if I had to buy another printer I would definitely buy this one again.

    Great features! Great printer!

    Posted .

    When I started reading the reviews for this printer I found either people loved it or they hated it. This left me with a lot of doubts. During my research, I watched a video about all the features (love the built in duplexer) and it sold me on buying this printer. Because of the features it offered, I thought, this is the business printer I have been waiting for, not to mention the low cost for ink. So I decided to give it a try. The one piece of advice that seemed to be common with some of the people who loved it was they used the web installation option. I’m glad I took this advice because my printer works great! This may or may not be an important factor because printers can be finicky when it comes to installation and everyone’s computer is different. It may be worth noting, however. It did take a little troubleshooting to get my wireless network connection to work, but it works fine now. As for the noise, I noticed it only during startup when first turning it on and when it prepares to print, but I didn’t find it bothersome. I’ll have to see how it does over time. I’m using this printer wirelessly with both an HP and a Dell laptop running Windows XP. My small business will run a little easier with this one. Thanks Kodak!

    Great Quality, poor mechanics

    Posted .

    OK, so here it is, honest, I bought this because I wanted an all in one printer that I could print pictures with. The fax doesn't work with my broadband phone carrier (this isn't a Kodak problem, just putting it out there). I've had to call Kodak twice now, once because I left my printer on while I was away on business and apparently you can't do that because the printer head will dry up (in a week), and the second time because I kept getting "top tray paper jam" warning (with no paper in the top tray mind you). Now, I will give it to Kodak, they replaced my printer head and NOW are replacing my whole printer, good for them! The other bad thing I have to say, is that there are some connection problems, not sure if this has to do with my running XP Pro X64 though. On the positive note, this is one sexy printer, when it is working, it prints some of the best pictures I've seen, it beats Wally-World and Walgreens photo labs hands down! They are bright, vivid, and just plain gorgeous pictures. (when it works) I really love the printer, I'm just saddened by all the troubles I have with it.

    Good printer for the money

    Posted .

    Got this printer primarily for printing everyday stuff. I still use my photo printer for snapshots. The photos I've printed on this printer are acceptable, and even good if the lighting is good; doesn't do so well with low light photos...a little more grainy than I would expect. Easy set up and install to home network. NOISY. Time lag before it starts printing. But I love the price of the ink!!

    Good printer some minor issues

    Posted .

    Great printer for the money many useful functions great photos and easy to use, the ink last a long time and1/2 the cost of other printers like my old HP software is user friendly . Wireless is great a true stand alone devise The only negative it sometimes doesn't wake up from the energy saving mode when you need to print you have to turn it of then back on again then will work fine.
