Whether you want a high-quality printer, an all-in-one workhorse, a compact photo printer, or a simp
CTIA shows off what's new in smartphones, accessories, and all things mobile.
The EasyShare 5300 printer is Kodak's attempt at creating an easy-to-use, inexpensive all-in-one machine, but we think the company went too far and dumbed it down to where it lacks many of the features that the competition offers.
Despite its remote-printing capabilities, the Kodak ESP 3.2's design blunders and inconsistent performance are unacceptable in the face of competing multifunctions in the sub-$100 category.
The Hero 9.1 is a suitable choice for shoppers who need a capable multifunction imaging device with acceptable performance, apps that bring workflow into the cloud, and dual paper feed trays.
If you're not in a rush to receive your prints, the Office Pro 6.1 makes a worthwhile sidekick with several cloud printing options, a generous 200-sheet paper input capacity, and a 35-sheet autodocument feeder for hands-free scans on the upgraded 2,400dpi scanner.
Kodak packs a host of features in the EasyShare 5500, but fails to flesh them out sufficiently. We found this all-in-one printer frustrating to use.
If you want a camera that uses AA batteries and has a long zoom lens for a low price, pick up a Kodak EasyShare Z5010 before they're gone for good.
Stay away from the Kodak ESP C310 if you're shopping for a new all-in-one printer. Competing $100 models like the Canon MX410 or the Lexmark Impact S305 offer similar features in a tighter package.
The HP Photosmart C6180 all-in-one tries to be everything to everyone, and ultimately it fails to meet this lofty goal. It's a good printer at a decent price, however, for the home user who wants to consolidate all tasks into one machine.
As long as you don't mind not being able to print from a USB flash key, the Dell B1165nfw's healthy array of extra features and quick outbound print cycle make it worthwhile for small offices with wireless access.
The Kodak ESP 2170 is worthwhile if you run a small business and need a low-volume printer that can output high-quality snapshot photos, but bigger offices and Mac users should keep shopping.
