Kodak ESP 3.2 Wi-Fi All-in-One Printer (Print, Cop&hellip by Kodak
1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid, 29 Dec 2013
A complete waste of money. Ink doesn't last anything like as long as it says. If you don't use the printer for a few weeks, the ink disappears. I reckon to have got maybe 15 sheets out of a B&W cartridge that boasts it will print 400+ sheets. Nonsense. My wife has the same printer too and she has nearly thrown it out of the window in frustration with it. Cheap ink = Cheap printer = Expensive mistake. AVOID.

A bit of a curate's egg this one. Hatherley is an entertaining writer but when I reach the end of a chapter, Im left with the impression that Ive read the thesis of an over-enthusiastic student, too eager to impress. This guy frequently uses five words when two would do; drops in the sort of references to other work which are a necessary part of an academia but not this; scatters -isms like confetti and generally seems to be aiming for an A grade in big words. HOWEVER, I confess to finding the book often difficult to put down well past my bed-time. Also, I have got to the end feeling rather disappointed that its all over. So much so that Ive ordered Militant Modernism here on Amazon… Read more
