Kodak ESP 9

 

Kodak's ESP 9 All-In-One color inkjet multifunction offers a number of advanced features for its higher price. Unfortunately they cannot compensate for the machine's painfully slow performance and other shortcomings.

Touchscreen controls ; automatic duplexer ; Cheap inks ; Ethernet and Wi-Fi

Very slow ; very expensive ; Low-capacity main paper tray

If you're going to spend this much money on a multifunction, it had better be good. Kodak's ESP 9 All-In-One may be nicely designed and economical to operate, but it's incredibly slow. Canon's Pixma MP980 costs about the same and has its own quirks,...

Review: Kodak ESP 9 All-in-One Printer

 

The ESP 9 is a multifunction device equipped with very good printing capabilities on Kodak paper. It's mediocre in other important areas.

The ESP 9 has Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and USB connectivity. The three-inch LCD screen flips out on an easy-to-read panel that gives you access to copy, fax, and scan features. A jet-black exterior and blue LED panel lights give the impression of refinement, a...

Kodak delivers plenty of features and good running costs, though you can ignore its speed claims.

Kodak ESP 9 all-in-one printer

 

The latest top of the range all in one printer, scanner, copier and fax from Kodak is a neat and well-specified black liveried device. A backlit blue-buttoned control panel graces the front of the printer below which are dual A4 and 6 x 4-inch paper...

Easy set-up, good photo print quality, good text output, nice scans

Slow print speeds, poor copy quality, random paper jam alerts (even when there are not any), odd maintenance "timeouts" stall the printer, black ink drops out when copying, problems with black in coverage even after software driver update

But there is one more possible clincher: the cost of ownership. The ESP 9 costs a penny shy of £300, so that’s not particularly cheap. But the inks are £6.99 for the black cartridge and £9.99 for the five-colour ink tank. Kodak claims this provides the...

Kodak ESP 9 review

 

The Kodak ESP 9 is a versatile device equipped with very good colour scanning and printing capabilities but is mediocre in other important areas.

The Kodak ESP 9 is a multifunction inkjet that prints colour (well), prints black text (slowly), copies (badly), faxes (adequately), and scans (decently). Thanks to its nifty black design, it'll look real cool in your living room. Just turn the TV's...

Kodak ESP9 Multi Function Unit

 

At last a Kodak printer that seems to resist the temptation to jam at the drop of a hat, however this is a far more sturdy machine and is actually a multi function unit (as it has fax) and not an All In One as Kodak call it.

The Kodak ESP9 is very black and measures 43x39x25cm, as the paper cassette pokes out behind the main body this covers any extension caused by the cables. Software installation is very straightforward and you come to a point where you have the choice...

Matt Grayson takes a look at the shiny new Kodak ESP 9 All-In-One printer.

Beautiful styling; WiFi enabled; Ethernet enabled; Memory card reader; Pictbridge enabled; Fabulous printing; Fast and quiet; Built in fax; Built in duplexer for double sided printing

Control panel is flawed
