Start printing from your 802.11b/g/n wireless network in minutes with easy Wi-Fi setup

Click here for a larger image

Easy and fast Wi-Fi setup

Kodak offers one of the easiest and fastest Wi-Fi set-ups in the industry. So you can start printing and scanning from anywhere in your home or office in a matter of minutes. Simply select the Wi-Fi Set-Up Wizard from the menu on the printer's LCD, select your network and type in your network security password.

Scanning

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.

Touchscreen control and convenient connectivity

Kodak all-in-one printers are designed to be easy to setup and control. The sleek, responsive 3.5 in. colour LCD touchscreen makes it simple to create, copy, scan, and print. With conveniently located memory card slots on the front panel, supporting SD/SDHC, MMC, and Memory stick, you can view and print photos on the touchscreen without the need for a PC. If you prefer to hook up your printer via a standard USB cable, then use the Kodak All-in-One Home Center Software, allowing you to edit with ease to reduce red eye, fix blemishes and skin tones, or even restore colour.

Double-sided printing

Waiting to turn the sheet over is no longer an issue with the Kodak Hero 5.1 All-in-One Printer, thanks to automatic double sided printing. With double sided printing you can save money, reduce your paper consumption and help the environment in the process – all without compromising on print quality.

Smart sensor technology

Loading paper into the printer couldn’t be simpler thanks to the rear feed paper tray, holding 100 sheets of document paper or 20 sheets of photo paper for continuous, worry-free printing. There is even an intelligent paper sensor which automatically adjusts printer settings based on paper type, so you get the right print the first time.

Dual paper tray convenience

Switch effortlessly between photo and document printing with two paper trays. Load photo paper in one tray, plain paper in the other, and let the printer toggle between them depending on what you are printing – it couldn’t be easier. The photo paper tray has a capacity of 20 sheets upto 5 × 7 in. and including the popular 4 x 6 in. A4 can be loaded into other tray with a maximum capacity of 100 sheets.

Borderless and printable templates

Easily access printable template designs right from the control panel including graph paper, line paper (narrow or wide ruled), tic-tac-toe, reminder list, shopping list, and sheet music (portrait and landscape).

Kodak printing technology.

High-quality photos and documents with KODACOLOR technology

KODACOLOR technology is a revolutionary technology that combines a high nozzle density printhead and pigmented inks with precision dual drop placement. Together with our instant dry papers and high speed print system you get brilliant, crisp documents and vivid photos that last a lifetime. And all this for up to 50% less than other inkjet systems*.

At its most basic, a print is literally ink on paper. Our thermal inkjet printhead has 3,840 nozzles. All those nozzles deliver fast, precise, high-density printing. Plus, our printhead is a permanent part of the printer. Not part of the ink cartridge, like most other inkjets. So not only do you have a precisely tuned system—and quality prints—you only have to pay for it once.

What makes it all work? Over a hundred years of Kodak image science. This includes advanced color management for a wider color gamut, real-life tones, and brilliant colors. It includes algorithms in the printer and in the all-in-one printer software. All of this combines to give you crisp, clear documents and Kodak lab-quality prints at home.

The only printer ink triple 5 star rated for print quality

Most consumer inkjet printers use dyes, but Kodak printers use patented pigment based inks that deliver incredible print quality, ‘best-in-class’ print permanence of 120+ years** and prints that dry instantly.

In the latest Which Test Lab report on printer ink (July 2011) Kodak was the only printer ink awarded five out of five star ratings in all three categories for print quality; text print quality, photo print quality and water resistance. The same Which report highlighted Kodak as the lowest cost printer ink of any printer manufacturer on test.

The Kodak Hero 7.1 All-in-One Printer works with our expanded line of Kodak pigment-based 10 Series Inks. Featuring patented pigmented ink, ensures Kodak lab-quality photos and documents that last a lifetime Ideal for everyday printing. Print crisp, sharp, black and colour documents thanks to instant drying which resist smudges and smears. Kodak offers a range of ink cartridges that suit the way you print.

Fed up with expensive printer ink?

When you buy a printer, price will often be a major factor. But with expensive replacement ink cartridges, the total cost is not always clear – and high running costs can come as a bit of a shock later on. Kodak all-in-one Printers are different. You pay a little more for the printer but much less for the ink so now you can afford to print as much as you like.

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.

Introducing 3D photo printing from Kodak

The first 3D photo printing experience among leading consumer inkjet printers. All it takes is a few simple steps to create stunning 3D pictures that leap off the paper. Create 3D pictures at home... it's easy.

All you need is your digital camera, a Kodak All-in-One Printer, and Kodak Home Center Software, (version 6.2 or higher).

  • Select a subject that has little motion— portraits, and landscapes work best.
  • Take one picture. Within 20 seconds, move the camera 3 in. (75mm) to the right without changing the camera angle, and take a second picture.
  • Save the pictures to your computer and use Home Center Software to create and print 3D pictures—simply follow the on-screen instructions.
  • View your prints with the special Kodak 3D glasses.
Print from social networks

This software enables consumers to manage and print their photos, including those on social media sites such as Kodak Gallery, Facebook, Picasa, Flickr and Photobucket, all from one location.

Print from video

Another great new feature of the new software is the inclusion of printing pictures from video. You are now able to extract a still image from a video using the software then print directly to your Kodak printer. You can print pictures from AVI, MOV, and MP4 videos.

I was given the Kodak Hero 7.1 as a gift to print mainly photos, "has Kodak had being involved in the photographic industry for years" it was with some trepidation I opened the box to set it up as I had read reviews of earlier Kodak printers, commenting on problems with set up, faulty print heads requiring replacing and below average photo print quality.
First it could not have being easer to set up, just follow the steps on the enclosed instructions. Just tell it if you want WiFi or are using the enclosed cable (disc goes in to computer after you set up the printer).
I've held off placing a review for a while to see if the print head fails, but touch wood Kodak have seem to have solved this problem, and every thing is working fine.
I found the print quality does very, but this seems to be more to do with the quality / type of photographic paper you use. I printed the same photo on Lexmark paper, Canon and Kodak's own paper and got three different results, all close but not surprisingly the Kodak paper gave the best colour / tonal range on its own printer. You also have the ability to enter the batch code from your Kodak paper, so presumably any batch changes will not alter the colour of your photos.
I tried a similar test with a flyer and again found the quality was more to do with paper quality than inks, plain photo copy paper although exactable, paling in comparison to good quality paper and light card stock.
Printing from memory cards or sticks is a matter of just following the touch screen prompts to get what you want from individual prints to multi photo sheets
The scanning ability, is what you expect from a modern 3in1 printer (I used my own software to scan not the Kodak package) and works well as a stand alone copier.

Woeful printer, it scans ok, it prints pictures ok but ask it to print on anything other the Best setting and it bands badly and on draft it is all but unreadable. It may have cheap ink but the print quality is shameful. I spend at least a couple of hours a week live talking with India.
Unreliable, poor print quality, cheap ink at face value.
It just doesn't add up to a sensible buy - AVOID

I only wish I had bought from Amazon rather than Currys as i would have returned it for a full refund and be printing on something with more expensive ink, but that actually printed ok.

Just getting the printhead replaced, so basically its the whole printer replaced in parts, - wasting my time and shredding my nerves in the process.

UPDATE 06/01/14

The printhead was replaced and things were better, for a while. But then I was back on the phone to India and in the end my white printer was replaced, except for the printhead that I had to transfer over from the original printer, by a black version. I've been running this version successfully ever since. So now I have the machine I was after in the first place. I'm running it with a Mac and a windows laptop and they communicate perfectly with good quality printing and low costs.

However, I still cannot recommend this product to others as the time and cost it took to get to where I am now is not worth it. lets hope they get the problems sorted so they work out of the box.

Verified Purchase
I bought this printer last year and am very disappointed. The cheap ink claim is a con. The ink cartridges may not cost much but last about ten minutes. The Brother printer that we had before was much more cost effective. The first printer we had was faulty and Kodak sent us a replacement but we are still not impressed.

I bought a Hero 7.1 in February 2012. The first printer could only be switched on and off using the mains switch. But all other functions worked perfectly. After about 45 minutes on the phone to Kodak call centre they agreed to replace it.

The replacement printer arrived within a couple of days. Unfortunately the on screen control buttons did not function. After a 30 minute call they agreed to replace the printer.

Printer three arrived and functioned perfectly.... hooray!

Then three months later it developed a problem printing using wireless. Initially the printer seemed to take several minutes to process and spool and print even for basic one page Word documents. Then it started giving communication errors.

To test the wireless signal I tried moving the printer to within one foot of the router with no success. I reloaded the software to reset the printer to default settings. Then got the printer to search for wireless networks and it could not find any at all. My computer and phone could detect six.

I spoke to the call centre again who are based in India. They were very polite and very helpful and asked me to perform a few tests and also using remote software tried to fix the problem. This took about 90 minutes. At the end of this they agreed to send me printer number four. I've not received it yet but based on past experience it probably won't work for long.

On the positive side when it does occasionally function correctly the print quality is good.

I bought the Kodak Hero 7.1 to take advantage of cheaper print cartridges but as I will probably have to buy a new printer once its out of guarantee its a false economy.

If you still want to buy one be prepared for long chats to the call centre.
