Kodak ESP 3.2

 

The Kodak ESP 3.2 delivers fast speeds, quality prints and a plethora of mobile printing options for an affordable price.

Click to EnlargeInexpensive, easy to set up and boasting excellent print quality, the $99.99 Kodak ESP 3.2 provides exceptional value. Those looking for a more business-centric printer might prefer the Epson WorkForce 845, which has such features as a...

Kodak ESP 3.2 All-in-One Printer

 

Aimed primarily at home use, the Kodak ESP 3.2 All-in-One Printer inkjet MFP can also serve for light-duty use in a home office, or in the dual role of home and home-office printer.

High-quality photos. Prints, scans, and copies. Wi-Fi. Supports Google Cloud Print and Kodak Email Print Service

No wired network support. No automatic document feeder. No fax

Kodak ESP 3.2 All-in-One Printer

 

The $100 ESP 3.2 is Kodak's beginner's multifunction device that can print, scan, fax, and copy, but a week of testing is all I need to give it a thumbs down. I'm especially disappointed that this entry-level device still suffers the same mechanical...

The Kodak ESP 3.2 manages decent output performance on both speed and image quality.

A fixed-angle display limits its usability in tight spaces.

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.

Kodak Hero 3.1 All-in-One Printer Review: Bargain Price, Cheap Ink, Great Photos

 

The Kodak Hero 3.1 color inkjet multifunction printer offers a lot of bang for the buck. At only $100 (as of April 2, 2012) this copying/printing/scanning device produces exceptionally nice photos, and its inexpensive inks make it cheaper to operate...

Excellent photo quality ; Inexpensive ink

Slow performance ; Printer monitor software can conflict with driver

For a bargain price, this multifunction printer offers great photo quality and low-cost ink--with just a glitch or two.

Kodak ESP3 All-in-One Printer

 

An affordable all-in-one-printer that has strong editing software and cheap ink.

Great editing software ; Inexpensive ink ; Plenty of card slots

No LCD ; Awkward mechanical arm ; Noisy

If you can handle the higher ink costs, the Epson WorkForce 500 delivers slightly better results in a shorter amount of time. However, while the Kodak ESP3 has the $129 price tag, those who plan to use a printer heavily will save money over the long...

ESP 3 ALL-IN-ONE Printer

 

The Kodak ESP 3 All-in-One color inkjet multifunction printer offers a little bit of a lot of things, for a low price. Because it's slow and sparsely featured, however, it's best suited for a light-use, home or student setting.

Inexpensive unit and inks

Limited features and paper handling Slow; plain-paper prints look dull

In our tests the ESP 3 struggled on multiple fronts. Plain-text pages crawled out at a rate of 6 pages per minute (ppm), color graphics at 2 ppm. On plain paper, plain text looked charcoal rather than black, finely drawn, and just a little imprecise;...

Kodak ESP 3

 

Kodak's ESP 3 is an entry-level all-in-one (AIO) inkjet printer, copier, and scanner. Kodak keeps the cost low at $130, which makes this one of the cheapest multifunctional printers, but the output quality just isn't up to par with that of the other...

Kodak's Home Center Software with autoretouch makes photo editing easy; onboard media card bay; compact footprint

Unacceptable text and graphics prints; awkward mechanical arm; slower-than-average print speeds; buggy Windows Vista drivers

The Kodak ESP 3 comes with great software for editing photos and applying touch-ups to portraits, but printer software is only as good as the physical results, and the print quality isn't nearly up to current industry standards. Your $150 would be much...

KODAK HERO 3.1 All-in-One Printer

 

The Kodak HERO 3.1 All-in-One Printer ($99.99 direct) is the junior member of Kodak's HERO line of inkjet multifunction printers (MFPs). It provides a low-priced option with solid home credentials, respectable speed and output quality for its price.

Good price. Support for Google Cloud Print. Low claimed running cost for color pages

Sub-par graphics. Inconsistent photo output. No port for USB thumb drive

The Kodak HERO 3.1 is the junior member of Kodak?s HERO MFP line, providing decent speed and output quality for home use.

Expert review by:

Kodak ESP 3 All-In-One Printer

 

The ESP 3 has a sleeker design than the original Kodak printers, thanks to a black case and a slightly shrunken size: 6.9 by 16.6 by 11.8 inches (HWD). Inside, however, not much has changed from last year's models, with the same ink system as before,...

Low claimed running costs. Fast photo print speed. Prints, copies, and scans

Although it lets you copy files from memory cards and USB keys to a computer, it can't print directly from either

The Kodak ESP 3 All-In-One Printer lacks common features like direct printing from memory cards, but it delivers reasonably good output quality and a low claimed cost per page.

Expert review by:

Kodak ESP 3.2 All-in-One Printer

 

Great photo output, nice documents (at best quality), and inexpensive ink more than compensate for this inkjet MFP's slow and slightly loud operation.

Kodak has one of the friendliest and most colorful installation routines in the business. The software bundle handles scanning, OCR, and even 3D photos; and you can control everything from within a single nicely rendered interface. The ESP 3.2 offers...
