Kodak's ESP C310 inkjet printer lets you print, copy and scan, all in one fairly compact package. It also includes Wi-Fi connectivity and offers among the cheapest running costs of any inkjet printer on the market. It's available now for around £75.

Black dwarf

As with most printers, the C310 is finished in black, but Kodak has opted for a matte, rather than glossy, finish, so fingerprints don't show up on the surface. Kodak has also added some flashes of its corporate yellow on the scanner lid and the ring around the start button.

Measuring 419 by 173 by 312mm,  the C310 is relatively small for a device of its kind, although folding out the front and rear document trays does increase its footprint somewhat. The rear tray holds up to 100 sheets of paper.

The top of the printer is home to a small colour screen, a four-way direction pad and various other buttons that allow you to control features such as photocopying and printing photos. A multi-format card reader on the front of the C310 makes it easy to feed your photos to the printer. The menu system is pretty straightforward and easy to navigate.

The C310 can be connected to your computer either via the USB port on the rear or over Wi-Fi. Setting up the Wi-Fi connection is pretty simple -- you can search for and join networks using the controls on the front panel.

No speed demon

The flatbed scanner on the top of the C310 has an optical resolution of 1,200dpi. Scans look reasonably good, with accurate colours and sharp detail captured in photos. Similar tones at the darker end of the colour spectrum tend to get mingled together, rather than remaining distinct, but this is an issue that affects many scanners on all-in-one devices.

You can view photos on the 1.5-inch colour screen. 

As a photocopier, the C310 is fairly speedy. It managed to copy our ten-page black and white test document in 32 seconds.
