Kodak ESP 5250 All-in-One Printer

 

The Kodak ESP 5250 All-in-One color inkjet multifunction printer costs only $150 (as of February 5, 2010) and includes Wi-Fi connectivity--a nice feature to have at this price point. Otherwise, it's essentially the same average-quality, slightly...

Low purchase price ; Superlow ink costs ; Wi-Fi connectivity

Grainy-looking prints on plain paper ; Slow at printing and copying ; Meager manual-duplexing help for Mac users

The 5250's wireless functionality is a nice touch, but the MFP itself is slow and minimally featured otherwise.

Kodak ESP 5250 review

 

The ESP 5250 is Kodak's latest upgrade to last year's ESP 5 all-in-one printer, which should be obvious from the almost identical design. Aside from looks, the printer does make improvements to print quality and, most notably, its output speed....

Improved photo quality and speed over previous model; 2.4-inch LCD screen; easy to use Home Center software.

Fickle paper input tray; expensive; lacks auto-document feeder, USB port and scanner hinge.

Kodak's ESP 5250 multifunction printer isn't marred by the errors of its predecessors, but it still needs improvement before it can keep up with the competition. Right now, its pleasing photo quality and satisfactory output speed don't justify the $170...

Kodak ESP 5250 All-In-One Printer

 

The difference between home and home office multi-function printers (MFPs) keeps getting less and less clear. Where there was once a bright line (as lawyers like to call it) between the two, there's now a wide fuzzy gray area. Few printers make that...

Unusually high-quality text for an inkjet. Fast photo printing. WiFi. Low claimed cost per page

Relatively slow for business applications. Only a 100-sheet paper capacity. Photos tend to lose details in light areas

The Kodak ESP 5250 All-In-One Printer offers fast photo printing and high-quality text, but photo quality is at the low end of the scale for inkjets.

Kodak ESP 5250 review

 

The 24-bit optical flatbed scanner offers a 1200 dpi resolution while scanning photos and documents up to 8.5 x 11.7 inches. Kodak also offers multi-scan software allowing users to scan multiple photos in one pass but separating the images into single...

Ease of use ; Good print quality ; Automatic scan features ; Intuitive software

Print speeds slower than advertised ; Manual duplexing ; One hour minimum for energy saver

Supplies for the ESP 5250 are also available on Kodak.com; the 5-color ink cartridge is $14.99 and the single black cartridge is $9.99. Or save by buying the combo pack for $24.98

Review Of Kodak 5250 Printer

 

Kodak has been famous for photo graphs and cameras. The alliance is so old that photos have now become synonymous with Kodak, just like goals have become synonymous with Ronaldo in football. Kodak ventured into printing business in 1999 along with...

Memory Card Reader, Photo Management Software, Wireless Connectivity

No Bluetooth Connectivity, Ugly Looks

Kodak 5250 isn't among the best. It misses out on some of the features like Bluetooth that a MFD must have. Take a good look at this printer before buying it. Other printers in the market give you better value for money than this.

Kodak ESP 5250 - Wireless All-in-One Inkjet

 

Kodak adds wireless, but not much else, to this refreshed all-in-one printer.

Kodak ESP 5250 review

 

The Kodak ESP 5250 is a tried-and-tested multifunction colour inkjet printer that's been with us for some time.

The Kodak ESP 5250 does a good job of proving the consistency of Kodak's product look and feel. This is a slick update of older technology. However, despite the odd improvement – the hinged LCD screen, for instance – there's little here that the Kodak...

Kodak ESP 5250 review

 

Despite excellent networking features and reasonable print costs, mediocre print quality makes this an average MFP.

Kodak ESP 5250 Review

 

The ESP 5250 is a tried and tested model that's been with us for some time, it's is marginally faster than the C310, but the C310's print quality is better

Decent range of connection options; output to photo paper is decent; good image reproduction from scanner; cheap black ink costs

802.11b and 802.11g WiFi only; slow print speeds

In many ways the 5250 does a good job of proving the consistency of Kodak’s product look and feel. This is a slick update of older technology. However, despite the odd improvement – the hinged LCD screen, for instance – there’s little here that the...
