Kodak Hero 9.1 All-in-One Printer

 

The $250 Hero 9.1 is Kodak's newest flagship printer with do-it-all features including a fax machine, a 4.3-inch touch screen, and dual paper trays, and for only $50 more than its linemate, the Kodak Office Hero 6.1 . Competing models from HP, Canon,...

A low cost per printed page, dual paper feed trays, a functional touch screen, and capable print speeds make the Kodak Hero 9.1 a strong printer for home users.

The tricolor ink tank will cost more in refills over time than single-color cartridges, and the 50-sheet paper output tray could be too small for home offices with high-volume print needs.

The Hero 9.1 is a suitable choice for shoppers who need a capable multifunction imaging device with acceptable performance, apps that bring workflow into the cloud, and dual paper feed trays.

Kodak Hero 9.1 All-in-One Printer Review: Slow but Capable Home MFP

 

The $250 (as of December 7, 2011) Kodak Hero 9.1 color inkjet multifunction printer is $50 more expensive than the Office Hero 6.1, but this more home-oriented MFP didn't fare as well in our hands-on evaluations. Our test unit produced the same...

Great-looking photos ; Excellent software ; Inexpensive ink

Slow performance

Pluses on this home-oriented MFP include an LCD touchscreen, a dedicated photo tray, and cheap inks--but its pedestrian speed is not for the impatient.

Kodak Hero 9.1 Review

 

The Kodak Hero 9.1 is the brand's new flagship desktop printer, topping a range of less-equipped, less-expensive models including the Hero 3.1, 5.1, 6.1, and 7.1. The Hero 9.1 comes complete with trendy features like 3D printing (the paper glasses...

Easy-to-navigate touchscreen interface ; Well-placed USB port and SD card slot

Extremely noisy ; Somewhat unresponsive touchscreen ; Glitchy; multitude of setup and connectivity errors ; Smartphone app wouldn’t consistently connect

The Kodak Hero 9.1 is a good, solid printer, but falls short on the more advanced functionality it aspires to provide.

Kodak HERO 9.1 All-in-One Printer

 

The HERO 9.1 supports Ethernet and Wi-Fi for easy sharing on a network, and it can print, scan, and fax, even over a network, as well as print in duplex (on both sides of the page). It also works as a standalone copier, fax machine, and direct email...

Prints, faxes, and scans. Standalone copier and email sender. WiFi and Ethernet. Low claimed cost per page

Subpar output quality for text and graphics. Slow print speed. Low paper capacity

The Kodak HERO 9.1 All-in-One Printer is a good fit as a home printer or for the dual role of home and home office printer, as long as your print needs are distinctly light duty.

Kodak Hero 9.1

 

In mid-2011, Kodak replaced its well-established ESP line of inkjet printers with its new "Hero" brand of single-function and multifunction models. Feature for feature, we haven't seen a huge difference between the Heroes and the printers they've...

Consistently good-looking prints and scans ; Big, colorful LCD and contextual control panel ; Low-cost consumables

Uses just two ink cartridges for a six-ink system ; Performance is a little slow ; Doesn't photocopy skin tones well

This feature-packed, compact all-in-one inkjet turns out good-looking documents and photos at a low cost per page. It's not the fastest office printer in the race, though.

Kodak Hero 9.1

 

The Kodak Hero 9.1 is a feature-packed all-in-one printer that has a smart touchscreen and very good image and text quality. Small business buyers will appreciate the automatic document feeder and built-in duplexing. It definitely isn't the speediest...

"Best printer"

 

This is my 2nd Kodak printer, they are the best printers I have ever had and it is to bad that more people did not know how good they are. I will never buy an HP again.

This does every thing well.

None at this time.
