    The best AIO I have ever owned!

    Posted .

    Software takes about two minutes to install on both windows and Mac. Wireless was easy, only took about 60 seconds to configure. My iMac, Macbook Pro and Windows XP computers can all print pictures or documents wirelessly with no problems. The photo/document paper trays are automatic so I don't have to worry about having the right paper in the tray when I print. This is by far the BEST printer I have ever owned. I had a Lexmark before this and it never gave me a problem but this printer blows the lexmark away in every way. I also had the Kodak ESP 3 before this ESP 9 and never had any problems from the ESP 3 either, I just needed to upgrade to the fax and duplex printing features of the esp 9. Fax, duplex printer, coping, pictures, documents etc all work great as expected. I could not be happier with it. I can print over 130 pictures with one color cartridge. Not only are the color/black cartridges cheaper than the other brands, they seem to last longer also. I also like the fact they dry instantly so I don't have to worry about smearing them or getting them wet. The pigment ink is the way to go.

    Dont believe the hype on ink cost saving

    Posted .

    I bought this at bestbuy not even a year ago price matched so i got it at a great cost. I know they say the ink is cheap it better be cause you are always asked to calabrate when you have to pull ink or ink head so it waste alot of ink, then to make matters worse it hates printing on invitation cards jams says pull out ink pull out print head over and over and over, my sons graduation was coming up and i had to print invitations and it took me almost two hours to print just 25 invatition. Called kodak they sent a new print head and oh im so sorry over and over lol but they wont give you any ink for all the problems its caused over using. Now its freezing up when you turn it on so i have to pull the plug out of the wall to turn it off. Its loud while printing etc im going to return it using the extended warranty. My dad had trouble with the esp 5 model using alot of ink so he ended up using the warranty and getting his money back. We would not buy another Kodak. We were using HP's and the only reason for the change is they were not compatable with the new operating systems vista and windows 7 and hp wasnt going to mess with updating drivers so our loss. kodak esp models are junk

    Best Printer, Copier & Fax I have ever owned!

    Posted .

    I received this unit as a gift. Out of the box set up was easy with the provided instructions. Loaded software and set up wireless connection. Printed documents and Photos from computer. Results were excellent. Used the scanner and copied one of the pictures I printed. I was unable to tell the difference between the scanned copy and the original. Tested the copy function for multiple documents. Here again it tested fine. I have yet to test the Fax Feature, but I expect it to works as well as the rest of the other features.

    ink hog not as advertised

    Posted .

    Not as advertised, slow print speed, pictures ok not great, sucks ink like thirsty camel, small ink units, buy several at a time you will need them. Does have holes under label, but cost to refill same as new. Did I say loves ink, this baby drinks. 1st unit died 4 months household use, pick up circuits shorted out? Bought warranty smart idea. Should have taken other mfg. when offered. Over 200 in ink since 12/15/09 to 6/1/10 on 5th color 4th black, won't run on black only. Don't set to high quality except for pics. cheaper to print at drug store. MFG lied would use less ink. Both 1st and second units run same slow speed and mega consumption of ink. Fax is great, scanner is a snail, pick up quality good but if you are in a rush not for you. Try a different MFG, please.

    Good but room for improvement.

    Posted .

    Out of the box, the setup time is really quick. The directions are simple enough if you’re using a USB cable, but are seriously lacking in terms of Wi-Fi usage. Using this printer completely wirelessly is nothing short of a headache. The setup is overly complicated, the support either in print or online is poor at best, and frequently disconnects. The printer is not amazing, but it does produce reasonably good output in both color and black-and-white. The printer’s navigation menus are simple to get into and out of and nicely lit, though the numerical keypad could you some work. The printer was not able to perform some listed features without an update that was not on the CD. In all, this particular printer offers a lot of features at a reasonable price, but comes short in terms of a great all-in-one printer.

    Ink hog!!!

    Posted .

    THE GOOD: Out of the box, setup, installed, takes less than 10 minutes. No lies when it comes to fast printing, that it does. Ink cartridges are cheap, like it says. $35 for 2 black and one color. Nice display, and pretty easy to use. EVERTHING ELSE: DISPLAY- Great looking, yes, but even with the power down setting set at one hour, it hardly ever does. Other times, it'll power down soon after use. Mind of it's own maybe? Possibly... INK-The dream of having a color printer that finally takes cheap ink cartridges is quickly destroyed as you watch the ink level drop as the page prints (literally). They fail to mention how much ink is in each cartridge. Not like it matters though, once you start printing, you'll see. It's very little! They claim you save money using this printer and it's "low cost ink", but they fail to mention how long they last. It's rediculous. NOISE- It's a noisy machine most of the time. Doesn't really bother me, but it seems unnecessary. SCAN/COPY- Works great most of the time. High quality scans/copies, both color and b/w. However, it frequently has brainfarts. Failure to communicate to and from the computer at times, and failure to scan/copy at the machine. Happens a little too frequently for me. You can press scan and it'll scan right away, the next time (any amount of time later) you can press scan again, and though it may say it's scanning, it'll sit there forever and not do anything. It does this with other features too. Not a legal bed scanner, which is ok. It forces you to use the top loader, which works sometimes. PRINTING- Fast, both color and b/w are in the 30ppm range. Really not needed though, and doesn't make up for it's many other faults. Quality is ok though, so there isn't a whole lot to say about that. FAX- Works fine. However, to get a fax log report, you must print it, and it has incorrect dates and times that are 5 years old (at least mine did). There isn't any way to change that, that I could find anyways. Stuck in 2004... SOFTWARE- There isn't enough ability to adjust settings on both the computer and the printer. The software just didn't have enough options to change settings. That limits it's ability quite a bit. INSTRUCTIONS-???? Only got a manual that shows how to set it up, nothing else. Computer instuctions are minimal at best. Instructions on the machine are minimal also. And I already mentioned the software... PAPER TRAY- This one is rediculous. You can use legal paper, it does say that, but it's a pain. The inlet tray takes some playing around with to figure it out, but once it's done, it's great. At least they realized some people need legal printing ability. However, they forgot to factor in that ability on the outlet tray. You must set something in front of outlet tray, or build an extention with a lip, just to use legal. It will shoot the papers out, and they'll fall off the tray all the time. Looks stupid when papers are flying everywhere, and they get all mixed up. Did I mention it's a pain? And boy it shoots the papers out. ALL IN ALL- Get something better. I thought Kodak would be a bit better quality, and live up to this saving money on ink lie they spewed all over. They didn't, and this machine will prove that. It replaced an HP, which quit working, that had it's fair share of problems too but had more ability to me. I wouldn't waste the time. It's getting replaced with another machine as it's only here to fill in the gap temporarily, then it's going back. Don't like having to run to the store to get cartridges (cart loads at a time) just to keep it running. Even if it's personal use, a few pages of anything will drain the ink rapidly...

    Kodak ESP 9

    Posted .

    This printer is very noisy in printing, very slow and the print quality is poor on documents. I have not printed photos so I cannot evaluate the quality on photo printing. The customer service is in India with individuals that do not have good English speaking or comprehension ability. I needed advice on how to set up the printer with my particular network situation and he could only deal with what was written on the screen. On the other hand customer service was very frendly inspite of the language barrier. Printer was very easy to set up. Recommendations to others would depend on the purpose of the printer. If you want high speed high quality document printing I would recommend either a HP Color Laserjet or a Xerox Laserjet. For home use, this printer is adequate.

    ESP9 review

    Posted .

    I am happy with the product. Easy setup luckily as I had to do it twice. Received the product out of the box with a broken copier feed tray. Kodak's repair policy is to replace with refurbished products. This is as close to an office copier as anyone can get. The product itself is great. I'm not happy with Kodak's replacement procedure. When you pay for new and never get to use it once, the refurbshed printer sure is over priced.

    Some problems.

    Posted .

    I have had this unit 3 months now and works very well. Cartridges are relatively inexpensive. Replacing ink cartridges is impossible without unplugging from power souce. Have told Kodak about it and they want to replace it already. I can handle the problem without trading for a refurbished unit, which would probably give me more problems. You'd think Kodak would correct this with a download, but that would be too easy.

    Kodak Esp 9

    Posted .

    If your looking for a all in one unit that has low cost prints, then the Kodak Esp 9 is the way to go for the price,it's not a small unit but the money you save in ink is well worth it, if you are a thrifty shopper. The upfront cost is high for the unit,yet it is on par with the Epson Artisan 810, but the Epson is way easier to setup. In the end it all comes down to upfront cost vs long term savings in ink.

    AWESOME

    Posted .

    I bought this primarially so that I could save money on the ink cartridges, by far kodak inks are far cheaper than what i had been paying for my printer. I use my printer alot for pictures, printing coupons and etc. and have saved easlily over a $100.00 in ink costs in the 6 months I have had my printer.. It is a little loud and obnoxious when you first turn it on as it calibrates everything but other than that I have had no problems with it. I have noticed that if you are sending a large fax ( 10 pages or more) that it doesn't like to feed all the pages through one at a time, but that is not a huge problem, i just split it up! LOL pictures come out wonderfully! my aunt had sent me a picture, i sent it to the printer and even with out a photo ink cartridge the picture came out wonderfully, I was very impressed with it. Over all I would have to say that this printer has been well worth the initial cost, I did suffer from sticker shock when I first saw what it cost but all ready the printer has paid for its self in the savings on the ink cartridges and time saving.. I have already told everyone I know how wonderful this printer is.

    A little disappointed

    Posted .

    It's a very basic looking printer. The noise it makes when printing is extremely loud, clicks, buzzing and other noises made me think it was going to break down. It is not ready to use out of the box as wireless until you purchase a wireless router which is an additional cost of $150-$200 for a nice one. This is not made clear in the set up instructions. I had to call my ISP for help. I think it should be mentioned in the ads and on the box that a wireless router is needed to operate this printer wirelessly. I haven't checked out the copier, scanner or fax features yet, but as a printer, it's just average. Nothing special.

    Problems out of the box!

    Posted .

    Read all the reviews and thought I'd see for myself. Setup was easy for both WiFi and USB. Started setting features for use with my Mac and found minimal software for the Mac. No scanning software ... have to set up and scan from printer, then save to file on computer. Difficult to load photos to computer from memory cards using printer's reader. You need to open menu on printer, then find the transfer photo setting, then transfer. Photo printing is OK. I printed two photos from this printer (on Kodak paper) and a cheap HP photo printer .... NO comparison. Kodak prints were washed out and had a yellow "cast". Blue waters of the Gulf were looking kinda Gray rather than the Blue of the Hp print and the Mac screen. Two-sided document printing was a real problem for me. Documents printed using the duplexer had an enlarged border of 5/8" compared to the 1/4" of a single page. This could not be remedied and was told by customer support that the printer was faulty and needed replaced. I'm going to take their advise and replace it with another ...... maybe another EPSON!

    Most awesome printer ever

    Posted .

    I bought this printer primarily for printing high quality photos, and I couldn't be happier. The photos are the same quality that I can get for $5 a photo at a photo lab, but without the inconvience and high cost. It is also a great general office printer because it easily scans documents and can do double sided printing. The printer's instructions are very clear and helpful for whatever you want to do with it. The only problem was the printhead. When I first got it, the printhead was already malfunctioning because of rough shipping and handling. When I contacted customer support I was able to IM a representative and after attempting to fix the problem, they sent me a new printhead at no extra cost. The printhead arrived promptly and worked beautifully. The origiinal high price of the printer shoudln't deter people, because it more than makes up for it in terms of convienence, low ink cost, and high quality photos. I absolutely love this printer and am very happy with my purchase.

    Never Again

    Posted .

    I thought I was making a wise & thrifty purchase when I picked this printer. However, I have been greatly disappointed in my choice. This is my first purchase of a Kodak printer. I like to work in the early morning hours & it makes so much noise it wakes others up. It is extremely slow in printing from the internet. It has jammed several times & I find the paper has been pinched in the middle after I get it out of the printer. Sadly, I have only had it for less than a month & regeret buying it already. It was not cheap. I have not had it long enough to see if it lives up to the claims of more printing (from the ink cartridges) for the money.

    Kodak - OK with Pictures, Terrible with Printers!

    Posted .

    Bought it in February. Got so frustrated setting it up wirelessly I gave up for a while and went back to it in April. I had another scanner connected and I think the two were conflicting.Finally got it set up and working, with some help of my Indian friends on the other side of the world. Developed problems with the ADF, which I'm not sure ever did work right. I evenutally had so many problems that I've had it replaced twice with a refurbished model, and finally talked them into sending me a new one, which they just did recently. I never opened the new one, and sold it at a garage sale. At least I got most of my money back. Because of my experience with this machine, this was the absolute last Kodak product I will ever purchase. This thing should never have hit the shelves,especially being priced as high as it was when I bought it. Plus - THIS KODAK PRINTER IS JUST TOO STRESSFUL TO OWN! I probably have no less then 20 hours troubleshooting it in the 5 months I owned it. The bads? Noisy, Shakes, washed out colors on photos, can't scan from an application such as word (at least I couldn't), ADF worked well with copies, but not with scans, replaced units are so-called "refurbished" that I'm sure are just returns just like mine, cleaned up, re-packaged, and sent back out to the next complainer. I don't think they repair them at all because so many problems are probably computer related (device conflicts), rather than product related, and both "refurbished" machines I received had the exact same issues as the one I returned. The goods? Not much. The ink is cheap, easy to replace, the text printing is excellent. That's about it. But I have to commend their customer service. If you're not happy with, or can't understand your tech, ask for a supervisor. They are very friendly, and they really try hard to resolve problems. But they have so little to work with because of such a poorly designed and overpriced machine!

    A very good printer for the money

    Posted .

    Wish to thank Kodak for a very good printer and I do realize that you also took into account of printer ink. As far as cost of ink affordable compared to HP photosmart price ink (96-98) costing around 80 dollars. Great job love it. Support group has also been there for me. Again, great job guys.

    Best Printer Ever!!!!!!!!

    Posted .

    I started with the ESP 5 and was so impressed that I just had to get the ESP9 as well. Both work great. They don't conflict with one another. I can print two jobs simultaneously with no problem. The fax feature on the ESP9 is great as well as the duplexer which allows for two sided printing. It's very user friendly. I have two desktops, and one laptop, all are connected to the ESP9 we can print from any location in the house. If I'm using the ESP5 in my office, I can send other larger jobs to the ESP9. I can't say enough about the affordabilty of the ink and how simple it is to go into a store and not have to remember cartridge numbers. It's nice to be able purchase good, quality ink, and not spend $80 for the color and black combo. I also like the design of the printer. It's very modern and sleek. It's not big and bulky.

    Quality!!!!!!!

    Posted .

    I am a photography major and this printer prints quality images! They look like they were printed at a photo center! The speed is pretty great for the amount quality that you get at the end. I have printed 12 8x10 photos in color 2 in black and white and at least 60 photos in 4x6 (both color and b&w) and I still have ink. My color is just now getting low and my black ink is still half way full. This printer is amazing. I am currently in the process of starting a photography business and it is great for printing out photos for me to look at and judge what needs to be manipulated in the photograph. (I give CDs to my clients, not actual prints) Overall I have to say this is an amazing printer. You may think that the price is steep at an initial viewing, but you will get your money's worth no doubt!
