I just bought mine from the KODAK store. The deal was good, a 'free' USB cable included and a nice assortment of photo paper to get you started. Standard shipping was just 3 days UPS out of Tennessee. Way to go KODAK! Glad I waited for this one, as the installation was simple and straightforward. Worked right out of the box with no problems. BW/Color printing on Office Depot Ultra All-Purpose paper was flawless. Couldn't ask for better quality, letters crisp and clean with no fuzziness. Have only printed a few 4x6 color photos on the supplied KODAK sample paper so far and they were beautiful with great facial tones, color rendition, sharpness, and required no touchup in photoshop. I do use a KODAK P880 digital camera with SD card. Very impressed to say the least. Copies are clean and sharp and the scanner as well. Very impressed.
I am in need for a new AIO printer, and have been seeing the newest Kodak printer (ESP-3) I was at bestbuy and I tried printing a few pictures...actually I scanned one from a sample they had for another printer and reprinted it with the ESP-3 and it turned out pretty good. The things that have me leaning towards this is the cheap ink costs. For the most part I will print a couple dozen pictures, but would like to scan all of our wedding shots so that we have them incase of a house fire or something.
Does anyone have opinion's on this printer or any others around 150 and less?
