First Look: Kodak ESP 2170 All-in-One

1:47 /

The Kodak ESP 2170 All-in-One is an affordable, multifunction printer that gets average results.

IF YOU'RE SHOPPING FOR A NEW OUTPUT DEVICE FOR A SMALL BUSINESS AND NEED A LOW VOLUME PRINTER THAT CAN OUTPUT HIGH QUALITY SHOTS, THE KODAK ESP OFFICE 2170 IS WORTH A LOOK. HI I'M JUSTIN YU WITH CNET. COM AND THIS IS YOUR FIRST LOOK AT THE KODAK ESP 2170 ALL IN ONE MULTIFUNCTION PRINTER. IT'S A FOUR IN ONE DEVICE THAT CAN PRINT, COPY, AND SCAN ON A BUDGET THANKS TO A NEW PRINT ENGINE INSIDE THAT SEPARATE THE PRINT HEADS FROM THE DUAL INK CARTRIDGES. THAT MEANS KODAK KEEPS THE INK COSTS LOW, WHICH IS NORMALLY WHERE PRINTERS RAIL YOU AFTER YOU'VE ALREADY BOUGHT THE HARDWARE. WITH THE 2170, YOU'LL PAY A LITTLE UNDER 4 CENTS PER PAGE OF BLACK INK AND 11 CENTS PER COLOR PAGE. THE CONTROL PANEL HAS ALL THE BUTTONS YOU NEED TO ACCESS THE FEATURES, BUT WE WISH THE DISPLAY WERE BIGGER, ESPECIALLY SINCE KODAK ENCOURAGES YOU TO PRINT OUT SNAPSHOT PHOTOS WITH A NEW 3D PRINT FEATURE. THE HOME CENTER SOFTWARE INCLUDED IN THE PACKAGE LETS YOU OUTPUT STEREOSCOPIC 3D IMAGES, MEANING YOU'LL NEED A PAIR OF THOSE GOOFY RED AND BLUE GLASSES TO MAKE THE IMAGE POP, AND YOU ALSO HAVE TO TAKE TWO PICTURES OF YOUR SUBJECT, ONE THREE INCHES APART FROM THE OTHER, TO SEE IT IN 3D. THE DRAW IS DEFINITELY A NOVETY, AND WE CAN'T SEE IT BEING A BIG SELLING POINT FOR CONSUMERS. IN TERMS OF PERFORMANCE, THE 2170 NEITHER IMPRESSED NOR DISAPPOINTED US, BUT IF YOU'RE IMPATIENT OR HAVE A BIG OFFICE AND NEED A HIGH VOLUME DEVICE, KEEP SHOPPING. THE KODAK GAVE AVERAGE PRINT SPEEDS ACROSS ALL FOUR OF OUR TESTS, BUT TRUE TO ITS OFFICE MONIKER, IT PRINTED GRAPHICS-HEAVY AND PRESENTATION DOCUMENTS THE QUICKEST. YOU CAN READ ALL THE DETAILS INCLUDING QUALITY TEST RESULTS IN OUR FULL REVIEW ON CNET.COM, BUT THAT'S GONNA DO IT FOR ME. I'M JUSTIN YU, AND YOU JUST TOOK A FIRST LOOK AT THE KODAK ESP OFFICE 2170, THANKS FOR WATCHING.
