Kodak HERO 5.1 All-in-One Printer

 

Automatic duplexer. Ports for USB thumb drive and memory cards. Low claimed running cost for color printing

Slightly subpar graphics output. Lacks Ethernet connectivity

The Kodak HERO 5.1 provides a decent feature set for home users at a good price.

Kodak hero 5.1

 

The hero 5.1, first of the new range of hero printers from Kodak, takes the remote printing route HP pioneered with ePrint, but goes with Google Cloud instead.

Easy wireless connection, Straightforward controls, Print red-green 3D images

No separate photo tray, External power supply block, Little control over Cloud Prints

Kodak Hero 5.1 review

 

The fearsome quartet of HP, Epson, Canon and Lexmark may appear to have had the inkjets market sewn up between them over the last few years. But Kodak has been quietly and efficently digging its way in.

The Kodak Hero 5.1 isn’t the slickest or most stylish printer we’ve seen. And its speed is slightly uninspiring in places. But it proved reliable in our tests, comes with a multitude of connectivity options, and its running costs are remarkable. It...

Kodak Hero 5.1 review

 

The Kodak Hero 5.1 all-in-one colour inkjet printer isn't very speedy, but it produces great results and its running costs are among the lowest around. It also looks very stylish and offers a good range of features for the price.

Low print costs ; Good-quality output ; Easy to set up ; Decent scanner

Combined colour ink cartridge ; Slow print speeds ; Small screen

Kodak Hero 5.1 review

 

A compact all-in-one that packs in plenty of features, the Hero 5.1 is a great little home printer.

Small and stylish, good quality prints, WiFi connectivity and cloud printing, low running costs

Printing a little slow, combined colour cartridge

At just under a hundred quid, the Kodak Hero 5.1 is an all-in-one printer, copier and scanner that’s a little pricier than similarly specified machines. With low running costs and excellent quality results though, it’s the perfect choice as a family...

Kodak Hero 5.1 review

 

With the Hero series, Kodak is trying to reinvent the all-in-one printer for home users. The status quo has been that you pay peanuts for hardware and a packet for the ink. Kodak's printers are a little more expensive, but running costs are...

great buy

 

Switched from a HP machine due to cost of cartridges and needed Wifi. A little bit noiser but great to use and ink costs are extremely low.

Excellent purchase

 

Having read reviews we decided on this printer and we have not been disappointed. It is very easy to operate and the printed quality is very good. It is a little noisy compared to our previous printer but is still an excellent purchase.
