Kodak ESP Office 2170 All-in-One

 

The Kodak ESP Office 2170 is a multifunction printer that can print, copy, and scan on a budget thanks to a new print engine inside that separates the printheads from the dual-ink cartridges. This new hardware design lets Kodak cut the price down to a...

The Kodak ESP Office 2170 proves to be a capable home office performer, with an impressive software bundle, simple installation, and a new print engine design that keeps ink costs low.

The printer lacks double-sided printing and has a small LCD screen that hinders photo-editing functionality. Also, Kodak's All-in-One Home Center software works only with Windows, leaving Mac users without 3D printing or photo-editing features.

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.

The Kodak 2170 is a home office dream that photo fanatics will love. Considering its features, it's a compact machine that boasts productivity as well as a creative side. While it stops short of fulfilling your every corporate need and might seem a tad...

Pic Flick app makes iOS/BlackBerry printing extremely easy ; Photo prints (even lower-quality smartphone images) offer natural, rich color tone ; Very simple setup process, especially connecting to Wi-Fi ; Software UI is extremely intuitive for every...

No simple photo-editing options built into the printer ; Should support Android devices ; 3D glasses should be included

It seems like Kodak banks on the 2170’s worth because of its cost-saving ink, but it falls a little short on other important functionalities.

In most other ways, the 2170 offers a fairly typical set of capabilities for a home and home office MFP. It can print and scan over a USB cable or WiFi connection and it can work as a standalone fax machine and copier. Unfortunately, however, it...

Prints 3D photos. Prints and scans over a network. Standalone copier and fax. Automatic document feeder. Wi-Fi

No Ethernet connector. Relatively low paper capacity. Relatively slow for business applications. Can't fax from a PC

Despite its name, the Kodak ESP Office 2170 All-In-One Printer is less suited for the office than for the home office or for the dual role of home and home office MFP.

When you buy a printer there are certain features consumers look for prior to their printer purchase. For starters – price? Does it print quality images? How fast does it print? And how much will the ink cost me? Well the latest All-in-one printer from...

Easy setup. Good value for your money when it comes to ink cartridges. 3D printing feature. Wireless printing. iPhone and BlackBerry Apps available for printing directly from mobile devices

3D software printing is disabled for Macs. Cheap paper 3D glasses

The Kodak ESP Office 2170 is a well rounded printer that can also scan, copy and send faxes. It may also just seem like another typical budget all-in-one printer but it truly is a budget printer for the long haul, and it prints some nifty 3D images to...

The Kodak ESP Office 2170 is a multifunctional inkjet printer that falls squarely into Kodak's Office range.

The Kodak ESP Office 2170 isn't without its faults. We'd prefer a larger screen and, of course, the speed is disappointing. It's a real shame that you couldn't use this MFD for urgent text jobs, as otherwise it's got the strong scanner (with great...

Kodak's ESP Office 2170 is a compact inkjet multifunction peripheral (MFP) aimed at home workers and micro businesses. It's not as smart looking as some of the competition, notably devices from Epson and Canon, but it's not bad either; its textured...

This compact MFP isn't perfect, but it has everything a micro business needs – including very low running costs

Kodak's new, slimmed-down print engine in a SOHO all-in-one, at a lower price than earlier models. So is it all good news?

Easy WPS wireless setup ; Easy maintenance ; Built-in fax

Slow print ; No duplex ; No separate photo tray

Kodak provides its AiO Home Centre software, which covers all the basics, as well as drivers for PC and Mac. The two ink cartridges, one black and the other tri-colour, clip into the semi-permanent print head, which itself clips into the head carrier...

Kodak ESP Office 2170 All-in-One Printer review

 

Affordable, but minimal, all-in-one printer

Easy-to-use control panel and software; Excellent photo output

Cannot print or scan in duplex; Plain-paper print quality is mediocre

The best way to look at the Kodak ESP Office 2170 is as a photo printer that also handles basic office chores in low volumes. If nothing else, its inexpensive inks make it far cheaper to operate than most others in its class. If you're looking for a...

Kodak ESP Office 2170 review

 

Kodak's ESP Office 2170 has very low running costs and, as the name suggests, is clearly designed as a workhorse office printer

Low purchase price and very low running costs; very good text and graphics output

Limited quality when printing photos on plain paper

If you’re looking for a specialist photo-printer then there are more sophisticated models in this group. However, the low running costs of the ESP Office 2170 make it a good choice as a general-purpose printer for home and small business users, while...
