    Great for the home but not for business

    Posted .

    The printer lacks a good paper document software like Paperport; it's a bit slow in scanning documents and one can't send PC filed documents to fax rather fax must be done manually through the paper feeder. The print quality is very good and the cost of ink replacement beats the competition. The ink doesn't last long but cost to replace is much more reasonable. Overall, I will keep it as a home printer for scanning, faxing and printing photos or color documents but I am keeping my B&W laser printer for the majority of work. I also, purchased paperport version 12 but again not able to send electronic filed docs to fax, like Brother's MFP, without having to print and manually faxing like a normal fax machine. This is a big negative for me. The paperport is a document management software which is better than the Kodak provided document/scanning software. Hope this is helpful to anyone? Feel free to comment and let me know your thoughts on this printer as well, best ~ Louis D, San Jose, CA

    Nice printer for the money.

    Posted .

    My Kodak ESP-9250 is great. I use it wireless and it prints excellent pictures. The refills are reasonable also, compared to what I was paying for my HP Photosmart printer cartridges, nice savings.

    Great All-in-One For The Dollar!

    Posted .

    For reference I have had this printer about 2 weeks now, and have printed about 200 pages, 90% at draft quality color, a couple test photo's with the sample paper they give you (stunning!), few outgoing faxes and one incoming, copied about 25 pages in the sheet feeder, and scanned a few things for test on the flat bed scanner. Out of the box: It comes with a big glossy "How To" that is easy enough to understand. Setting it up is typical, lots of little easy to remove tape holding the trays and such together, then installing the print head and ink, all very straight forward. Next you need to decide how you plan to connect it to your computer or network. The easiest option is though the USB port, Cable not included. The good news is the Wi-Fi is easy enough to set-up. From opening the box to loading drivers and tools from the CD to printing was under 20 minutes I'd say. First thing was the test page, that is a little scary, I was using just plain generic paper and it looked pretty dull. Once the printer was configured I printed various things a draft, normal, and best, and was very happy with all, draft is good enough for all but very high detail stuff unless it is photo's and I don't print many photo's, the ones I did on the Kodak paper were literally stunning. Given that draft is usually suitable, the print speed is great, at normal it is acceptable, and at best the speed is marginal, but still good for the price. I don't have a good rule for photo print speed, seemed slow to me, but my last printer did not do photo's officially so no real reference, but will say again how impressed I was at the quality, as good as anything I have had printed at a photo shop. The copier with auto-sheet feed is really nice, reducing the scan and print to one step is a bigger plus than it may sound, no need to fire up a word processor or PDF reader, no need to scan to a file and then print the file, nope, just like at work, set your stack of stuff to copy in the try and hit start. Copy speed was very good. The flatbed scanner worked well also and was faster than the stand-alone scanner I replaced with this all-in-one, and scan detail was just as good, I scanned in some detailed Visio drawings and scanned them to PDF using their tools, very nice feature! The Fax is a fax, it works fine, having to store the number is not really an issue for me as that is what I usually want to do anyway, and they delete easily enough. The footprint on the PC is also very light, perhaps one of the best I have seen, the tools are just right to get a little extra out of the printer but other than the scan to PDF, nothing to write home about. If you are a member of Kodak's on-line photo stuff then the tools integrate with that environment and sounded cool. I loaded the drivers and tools on 2 XP boxes and a Win7 system, no issues on any. I also liked how it reached out for the latest from Kodak as part of the install and that it was optional. So far so good, I had always figured than an all-in-one was a compromise of all of the functions, but at least for my use this performs as a printer, copier, scanner, and Fax as well as any of the individual devices this replaced. Final note, I got an ink pack after seeing some reviews about it using a lot of ink, well I was surprised at how cheap the ink was compared to what I used to pay, and at least in my short experience I am still showing plenty of ink in the carts that shipped with the printer.

    i took the plunge!

    Posted .

    After several years of using HP printers and getting increasingly irked at the high price of ink I decided to broaden my horizons. The ESP-9250 was on sale for $149 and had all the features I would ever need. I studied the reviews on this site carefully and decided that I should try one out. Overall, the reviews on Best Buy's site were a mixed bag, though mostly trending toward the 4 and 5 star range. As you can see above, I pretty much agree. This printer was almost "plug and play". It was easy to unpack and set up and install the software. Print quality is competetive and the noise factor is important only if you are trying to use it in a room with someone trying to sleep. It' great that Kodak is getting away from the "Gillette" marketing plan that HP and many other printer manufacturers use. Give the product away and charge a bunch for the replacement "blades" ( re: INK!). According to Consumer Reports, the printer ratings showed that Kodak printers had the lowest ink costs on a cost per page basis. Only one HP model matched it out of all printers tested.

    Great Printer

    Posted .

    I bought this in the spring when it was on sale, using it primarily for school. Set up was no problem and not at all time consuming. It works great with all 3 PC's, 2 iPhones, 2 PS3's, and one iPod touch in my house. When I print pictures the quality is great although I am in no way a photographer and have never printed larger then a 5x7 (only on Kodak paper so far). The speed and noise of printing both my papers for school, family photos, and personal documents is comperable to the HP I replaced with this purchase. After owning this for a few months I have only replaced the ink once (spring semester and summer semester of homework, personal documents, and approx 55 mostly 4x6 photos printed). This printer has freed my digital pictures from the hard drive on the computers, finally making it to the frames I have and onto the walls. I have been so pleased with this printer that I bought my mother and grandmother one, both were able to follow the directions to set it up on their own (not typical for either one as I usually have to do all their electronic installations for them). The only thing I dislke is that you have to be connected via usb for the firmware updates for the printer, other than that this printer has surpassed my expectations and the performance of all the HP printers that preceeded it.

    Solid performer

    Posted .

    I have been using the Kodak ESP9250 intensively since I bought it about a month ago. I'm very pleased with the performance, speed and $10 black ink cartridges. This is a nice contrast with the $25 black ink cartridges for the HP all-in-one I replaced. The setup, a mix of wired and wireless, was effortless. One area I was concerned about, based on reading reviews before purchase, was paper handling. My heart sank when, on the very first test page, I had a jam. However, this turned out to be an aberration. I've only had one paper jam since while printing hundreds of pages, many of them duplex. I've had a chance to use all the features (fax, scan, copy) now, and all work fine. I've seen criticism of the photo quality in some reviews, but to my eye, the photos I've printed look equally as good as those I printed on my old HP. Except, with the Kodak, they print in one fifth of the time or better. I got the printer on sale for $149. It was a real bargain.

    it's just 'ok'

    Posted .

    over 4 hours trying to get it set up...finally called kodak (probably should have called immed). over an hour on the phone w/ them. quite frustrating, however, they were very nice & helpful. eventually got it set up. the next day, the printer wouldn't work again. i called kodak and was told to hit the windows button & the letter 'r' button at the same time. then left click bonjour & kodak, then hit restart. i have to do this every 3 or days (only when i want to print something...the copier always works). kodak tells me it my wireless network (which i'm not sure i believe). also...when printing, the machine is VERY LOUD!!!!!!!! i mentioned it to the kodak assoc and he replied "really?" now i find out it's not receiving faxes (although sending them works)...back to the manuel & possibly another call to kodak! wish i could return it & buy something else. i orig purchased this one because of all the commercials (less $$$ for ink replacement). i haven't tried to scan yet...

    Pretty good so far

    Posted .

    Setup was clear and simple. We programmed it for wireless and the tests we did produced photo reproduction with good color and clarity. Unfortunately after about a week we started to get an error code indicating problems with the printhead or cartridge. We used the chat support on the website,and it was very quick and responsive but ultimately unsuccessful. the suggested solution was a new printhead that arrived two or three days later. It seems to be working fine.

    Innovative features, easy wireless set-up

    Posted .

    Picked this printer up at my local Best Buy yesterday after seeing a review on CNET. Wireless set-up was incredibly easy, and best part, I can print even when I'm VPN'd into work (my old HP couldn't do that). I love the duplex (double-sided printing) and auto feed for the copier/scanner. And the Kodak free app that you download on your iphone to print your iPhone pictures couldn't be any easier to use. Finally I can print directly from my phone without having to email a picture to myself. AWESOME! I also liked the built-in templates like blank grocery lists or blank lined paper- what a cool feature. This is the printer I've been waiting years for. I can't believe this is a Kodak printer--glad to see them really stepping up to bat.

    Great Value

    Posted .

    I bought 2 of these - one for each of my offices. I've had them about a month now, and no problems to report. They set up quickly using the keypad to set up on wireless networks. No problems. I'm able to scan directly to any of the computers on the network. No problems. Can print from any of the comupters on the network. No problems. The only issue I have is that the software has to be loaded onto each computer before they can "see" the device on the network. As long as you have a fairly up to date computer, no problems. However, I could see how this might create a problem if you have limited disk space or memory (there are a few programs that run resident to monitor the printer/scan mode).

    Very Nice, Great features, but weak sheet fed scan

    Posted .

    Printer is great. Quality is excellent, even with photos. Scanning is great on glass but sheet feeding is rather week. NEGATIVE: It's great if you're scanning 81/2x11 using sheet feeding, but if you want to scan anything smaller, the guides will not adjust to a smaller size, like 4x8 for photos or receipts. You'll need to use the glass for that. It does scan both sides at once which is great. Problem is that it scans one side then feed it through automatically again for other side. Nice in theory, but painfully slow. Printing is a bit noisy as well. The software is great, but the problem is that it does not give you the option to scan different document to different folders. If you want to do that, you have to change the global setting every time. You can't do that either from the screen on the printer which is a pain. Finally, if I scan a document, and want to add another page to it, I have to have the software open. I don't have the option to do that on the printer screen. POSITIVE: Printing is great, very fast, and great quality. Very nice colors. Relatively small for everything it does, Looks great and feels solid Uses less ink than other inkjets and ink is cheaper, Very easy to use and setup, Wireless works great! Very nice software with lots of options Overall, the best all in one inkjet printer I've ever used. Of course, lasers are much better, but a LOT more expensive.

    Good Printer

    Posted .

    I hooked this up last night after waiting 5 weeks for delivery since Best Buy didn't send priority mail to my APO address. It hooked right up to my wireless network and I installed the provided software on 3 computers withouit issue. I printed a few things and I'm happy with the quality. I'll have too see how ink usage goes and if I remain satisfied with quality after more experience, but so far so good.

    Excellent addition to home WiFi network

    Posted .

    Purchased this after comparing to HP, Epson and Canon All in Ones. Have had experience with all of these brands. Kept coming back to Kodak because of looks, quality feel, ink costs and features. In store discount plus old printer trade in made it an easier choice. Installation and adding to my wireless network couldn't have been simpler. Have used print, copy, scan and fax features without problems. Photos I've scanned and printed produced a copy difficult to tell from the original photo. Basic printing produces fast and clear images.

    AS Good or better than HP !

    Posted .

    Have printed, faxed, copied ,have not come across any of the complaints from others on this 9250 as others have said on line. This multi function is as good as any HP I have had over the years. Does all it says and as good as any. Great picture prints, copies and page prints, faxes are as clear as any other printers. Quieter than my last HP , not exactly quiet but, none I have come across are ! Software works great on my system. Savings on ink and print quality is worth the try. I love this printer and so far, and will never get another HP who wants you to get a loan every time you need ink.

    Buy it !

    Posted .

    I already have 3 HP all-in-one printers and I have 1 Epson. I got feed up with the high cost of Ink Cartridges. I checked out the Kodak line of printers and the costs of the inks. I purchased the ESP 9250. Don't let anyone fool you, this thing is so easy to set up. Just follow the instructions step by step. The Wireless connection was the easiest I've ever set up. It prints excellent photos and prints outstanding color graphs. I have 4 home computers and 1 laptop connected to this thing and it works great. Buy it, start saving money on Ink.

    Save on ink? I don't think so...

    Posted .

    I did a lot of research before buying this printer. I have had mostly HP printers and a few Canon so I was in search of a printer that had cheap ink without having to buy those refills. Features are all good, wireless is easy to setup. I haven't had a chance to print a picture. I mainly use it to print documents (and I always print draft in black and white) and scan documents. Guess what? The level of the colored ink is the same as the black and white which is already half of the cartridge. What the heck happened to "save on ink?" Kodak... you don't know how disappointed I am.

    Great printer for the price

    Posted .

    I bought this printer at $100 off the original price. I was a bit worried after reading some of the reviews of people having problems with the WiFi and mysterious paper jams that didn't exist. Well, I have had this printer now for about a month and I can say it is a GREAT BUY! I have not had any of the issues I have read about (yet lol), and it has just been a really great printer thus far. I print a lot of coupons, and documents and I still have not had to replace either ink cartridge. I think I have gone through at least 200 pages, black and color, and they are reporting as half-empty. If I had to find a complaint I would probably say it is rather loud for a newer printer but it does not really bother me so much.

    A great value!

    Posted .

    For the price I don't think you can get a better printer and it was the price that caused me to consider this printer. I was willing to forgo features and quality to get a wireless all in one. I have another expensive printer that is not wireless so I felt I didn’t need to spend a lot when I only needed wireless. What I got was an all in one printer that way exceeded my expectations. The wireless feature was easy to set up and works perfectly. The print quality rivals my more expensive photo printers and in some features exceeds in performance. For example, you can edit your photo in the print menu and even remove red eye. The LCD screen is bright and very functional. What makes this all so sweet is the ink is the lease expensive in the market and last. I now use this printer for almost all my printing. It is a great value!

    Very Poor Customer support, Wi-Fi Quit

    Posted .

    The Wi-Fi quit working on my machine and I was unable to get help from Kodak. Possible language barrier, but "live" chat was anything but. It took minutes for each line to be answered and the rep didn't seem to understand when I told him the problems and what I'd already tried. He kept saying I needed to wait a few minutes while he researched the problem, but he seemed to have no idea what was going on. It tied up about 4 hours of my time and still isn't fixed. It took so long for each chat comment to be answered that I kept thinking we were disconnected. Print quality is not great for the cost of the machine. Wi-Fi was working, then stopped for no apparent reason and it won't go back online even though Wi-Fi is working with other equipment. Sorry, but this was a mistake and I probably won't buy another Kodak.

    Awesome printer

    Posted .

    I bought this printer as a replacement for a previous Kodak printer. I was waiting until this new model became available. I love the wireless printing feaure. It prints awesome color photographs. I also downloaded the Pic Flicks app to my IPod Touch 4 g and can instantly printer pictures with just the touch of a button. Love, love, love this printer!! I also got a $50 dollar trade-in on my old printer and then it was on sale for $50 dollar less, so I paid $149.00 instead of $249.99. It was a fantastic price!
