1.0 out of 5 stars Kodak Ink doesn't Last, 14 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kodak Genuine 30B Ink Cartridge - Black (335 Pages) (Office Product)
The ink cartridge is easy to fit and does its basic job but it simply doesn't last very long, certainly less than the 335 pages claimed. I am used to printers and ink cartridges where quality is maintained until the last drop of ink but in the case of the Kodak cartridges when you get a low ink warning the quality of printing starts to deteriorate noticably. This forces you to replace the cartridge before it is empty so effectively the cartridges are much more expensive than the up front cost would suggest. This combined with problems with the printer itself makes me think I won't be buying a Kodak printer again.

I totally agree with this review.

I am horrified at paying £5 per month for printing that I don't do, simply based on the cost of the teeniest printer cartridges. My printing is absolutely minimal, and the kodak printer just point blank refuses to print. I don't get the poor quality as it runs out, and I would prefer that... I have even taken to printing everything in 'draft' form to try to get better value for money.

I think their claim of being one of the cheapest printers to run on the market is false and needs taking down.

I don't print anywhere near over 300 copies, and the printer printout of numbers of copies proves it.I have a printer that I have had for years and its cartridge is still churning out the black/white copies thousands of prints later. What a rip-off printer cartridges are! and this the worst of them

Do not spend anymore money on Kodak products, cut your losses, ditch your printer.

Good advice Mr McEwa - I've binned two Kodak printers and will never buy another! The ink cartridges are a scandalous rip-off!

Agreed, I have exactly the same problems. Cartridges seem to run out very quickly and quality deteriorates. also, a real pain that you cannot print in black and white when the colour cartridge is empty (or vica versa). Printer is pretty rubbish as well, keeps going through print heads - no wonder they have stopped making printers.

Couldn't agree more with all of the above reviews. Worst printer ever, the ink cartridges seem to last a few weeks! Would never recommend this printer.
