Top VFM. Outstandingly low print costs
on 21 March 2012
I have owned personal printers for nearly 15 years, I've had 8 in that time. My biggest bug bear has been print costs - you know what I mean, the cost of replacing inks. Nothing worse than being seduced into buying a £39 printer only to spend £25 on ink every month. Do you know printer ink is £1,800 a litre (remember that next time you are complaining at £1.40 for a litre of petrol). Anyhow, I digress. I've had this Kodak 6.1 Hero for 3 months, I consider myself a heavy print user, and I am still on the same cartridges it shipped with. I purchased spares so I am ready when it runs out - even they were only half the cost of my previous HP cartridges), but this Kodak printer ink is like the Duracell Bunny, it just keeps going. Print quality good, speed is certainly adequate. Not sure why all the fuss about wireless connectivity - I just plugged it in, followed the instructions and was wirelessly printing in less than 10 minutes, no fuss at all. If I was forced to find a negative, it would be that it is a bit noisy and it's internal printing mechanism seems to overpower it's flimsy carcass - in other words, you can see the whole printer rocking / jarring from side to side as it prints. Very very very happy indeed. Annoyed with myself for persevering with better quality printers whilst allowing myself to be mugged on ink costs for so long. I would guess the savings you make on ink with this product compared to other brands, would pay for the printer's purchase price within 18 months. IMpressive.
