Inkjet printersPosted Monday, February 18, 2008, at 9:36 AM
I bought a new inkjet printer / scanner / copier over the weekend. It wasn't a planned purchase; I went in looking for inkjet cartridges. I usually get my old cartridges refilled, but not on this occasion.
Anyway, I found an all-in-one printer I liked, and bought it instead of refilling my old printer. Its the first time I've ever owned a working scanner, and I'm having fun scanning some of my old family photos.
It's a Kodak. They are now claiming that their technology dramatically reduces the cost of printing. According to the bar graphs on the side of the box, and at a promotional web site they've sent up, their cost-per-page is, depending on what kind of document you're printing, supposedly as much as half the cost of the competition. The black & white and color cartridges for my new printer cost roughly the same as I had been paying to get my old cartridges refilled at Walgreens. That promise of lower cost-per-page was part of what tipped me toward buying the new printer even though I wasn't in the market.
The image quality, at least so far, seems terrific, both on regular paper and when printing photo-quality from the photo-paper drawer.
Has anyone else used one of these new-technology Kodak printers? Are you happy with it? If Kodak can deliver what they're promising, this could touch a lot of people who are fed up with the high cost of ink cartridges.
