Product Description

Product Description



Save an average of £75 a year on ink.**
Fed up with expensive printer ink?
When buying a printer it’s tempting just to look at the ticket price of the printer. But with expensive ink cartridges your total costs are not always clear and can come as a bit of a shock later on. Kodak All-in-One printers are different, they have the lowest total ink replacement costs in the industry.* Independent tests prove that you can save an average of £75 a year on your ink.** Don’t just take our word for it, all testing was done independently to ISO standards by QualityLogic, who have provided testing services for the printing industry for over 20 years. QualityLogic are a world-leading expert in printer testing and were integral in developing the international standard (ISO) for measuring print cartridge performance. So say goodbye to overpriced ink and enjoy Kodak’s low-cost, high quality pigment ink cartridges that give you all the bright colours and sharp text you’d expect for just a fraction of the price.



Print brilliant colour documents and Lab-Quality photos that last a lifetime.***
More than 100 years of Kodak image science research lies behind Kodak’s patented pigmented inks and advanced micro porous photo paper technology. This results in best-in-class image stability together with the brilliant colour and exceptional image quality Kodak is known for. According to Wilhelm Imaging Research (WIR), a leading independent print permanence testing laboratory, Kodak All-in-One printers are ‘best in class’ achieving the highest level of overall print permanence of any current consumer desktop printer system. Other printer brands suggest you keep your photos under glass and out of the light to prevent fading but Kodak photos will last a lifetime,*** with no catches. As well as using pigmented inks which have inherent advantages over the dye-based inks found in most other brands of consumer inkjet printer, Kodak All-in-One printers use an additional clear protective gloss ink. The clear ink is applied in variable amounts depending on the amount of colour ink on each photo delivering a beautiful uniform gloss finish to the photo whilst also improving stain protection and smudge and scratch resistance. No other brand of consumer inkjet printer uses this technology.



Easy to use
Kodak All-in-One printers are designed to be easy to set up and use. The 1.5-inch colour screen provides a clear menu and allows you to view and edit photos. You can print and copy at the touch of a button without a PC and an intelligent paper sensor automatically adjusts the printer settings based on the paper type to deliver the possible print quality first time every time. And thanks to the pigment inks and micro porous papers photos dry instantly so they can be handled as soon as they come out of the printer avoiding any possibility of smudges or finger prints. Scanning is easy too, the high resolution optical scanner allows you to scan multiple images at once with the software automatically creating separate image files making it quick and easy to get great scans.

*As compared to leading consumer inkjet printers total ink load replacement costs using manufacturer's recommended ink cartridges; excludes printers that use only one cartridge. Based on independent third party cartridge pricing survey data obtained May 2009. IDC cartridge pricing survey data.
** Results based on average annual print volumes compared to leading consumer inkjet printers. Actual results may vary.
*** Based on testing by Wilhelm Imaging Research (WIR) using KODAK inks and a full range of KODAK photo and document papers in all common consumer display and storage environments.
**** This printer only accepts inkjet compatible paper types for normal and photo printing

It was recommended to me in a computer shop when my previous printer broke down that I should buy a Kodak printer because the Kodak ink cartridges are so very much cheaper than most other standard printer inks - previously I had had an HP printer and the cost of inks was substantially greater than Kodak.

After ordering through Amazon the printer arrived within 3 days, and within 20 minutes I had it working excellently; printing, scanning, and copying.

Immediately after loading and installing the software from the disc I was asked whether I wished to upgrade the Kodak AiO software. Naturally I clicked - Yes! - but then found myself waiting about 40 minutes whilst the upgrade downloaded and installed. Finally with the upgrade installed everything worked well. However my message is - if you need to use the printer immediately, as I did - download and install the upgrade later when it is convenient to do so.

I bought this to replace a Canon IP4300 as the inks were very expensive, Kodak really go on at how cheap this Ink is but i don't think that is the case at all.
When it first run out i was like wow that's been a week when the Canon lasts nearly 4 months, i have now changed the inks far too many time and will be looking at getting a new printer with cheap compatible inks. The worst thing for me is when i need to print a document and without any prior warning the ink runs out. I needed to print this 1 page document urgently rushed out and bought Black ink installed and then when i went to print it told me a needed a Colour 10c ink. The document only needed to be printed in black ink only and for me that was the final straw.

Good Points: Good quality printing and copying
Easy set up

Bad Points: Ink runs out very quickly
Does not give any prior warning to Ink running out
Compatible inks are just as expensive
A Hassle

This printer not only uses very cheap printer ink but the colour quality of photos is excellent. I print a lot of photos and my printer the ESP5 uses very little ink and if you need more Amazon is the place to get it with a combo pack of 1 black and 1 colour for just £13.00.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Finally, ink refills that cost less than the printer does! It's about time a printer manufacturer broke rank and moved away from the 'razors & blades' business model of the competition. Kodak seem to have partly kept the cost of ink cartridges down by separating the print-heads into a separate unit. There's no indication of how long the print-head unit might last or what it might cost to replace and it could turn out to be the hidden cost of this printer, but at least in the meantime quality prints are actually affordable. Setting up and installing the ESP-3250 is straightforward, thanks to the large-format and well-illustrated handbooks Kodak have included. Compared to the bundled CD software, significantly updated versions of the drivers and printer firmware were available on Kodak's website (for both OSX 10.6 and Windows 7) and both installed without any problems.

On Windows the 'Kodak Home Centre' is a complete integrated solution which allows you to set your own defaults for the device, run maintenance utilities, get help and also serves as a launchpad for the printing and scanning functions, with easy walkthroughs of basic scanning and/or photo-retouching and printing tasks.

On the Mac the Home Centre allows you to change settings, get help and set defaults but does not include direct access to scanning or printing, instead it's well integrated into OSX itself. For example you can initiate and control a scan from within Preview or Image Capture or any other scanner-aware application.

Used as a standalone device, you can make copies of documents or photos or print pictures straight from your camera memory card using the comprehensive onboard controls and the card-reader (which can also transfer pic's to your computer).

I can't believe anyone has given this product a star let alone 5. It is easily the worst printer I have ever used and I seriously regret purchasing this.

The ink cartridges last about 5 minutes and when you change one you invariably get a printhead error message. By the time you have sorted that out with numerous print tests the cartridge is half empty again. And if you do finally get it working and you colour cartridge runs out, even if you want to print a black only document, it won't let you until you replace the colour.

The scanning functionality is awful. The only thing i would say is that the photocopy function works ok, thats the only thing that merits a star.

Frankly I now hate the sight of this printer on my desk.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Thia is a great printer. My previous all in one was stylish, but had twitchy software and was crippling me with ink costs. This machine has a rugged look, and is chunky and fairly compact. It does have a rather odd 'car bonnet' style access to its innards, but that's not really a problem. Setup was very quick but the other reviewers are quite right, you will need a USB cable - I recycled the one from my previous printer.

It does make a fair bit of noise, and the print action is rather dramatic, but the results are absolutely sound. The software here is clear and effective.

A solid machine, great value and really really economical.
