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

We tried this and it certainly worked from our Samsung Galaxy Mini, though the limitations on controlling size of prints, number of copies and other things you'd normally find in a print driver are absent, as they are with ePrint.

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

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...

Easy to set up (first time I've had a wireless one and managed to set it up myself without having to ask the grandkids lol) . Using it for printing off e-mails etc and it is so easy to use. My grandkids have had fun using the cloud printing for...

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.
