Kodak EasyShare 5500 Reviews

Trustedreviews reviews the Kodak EasyShare 5500 and writes;
“This machine, at twice the price of the EasyShare 5300, is not as impressive as the cheaper model. While the ADF and duplexer are useful additions for office use, the scanner takes a while to warm up and the duplexer takes a while to turn the paper over and prevents the printing of headers close to the top of a page. Printing is slow, too and although the quality is quite good overall, it’s only the promise of low-cost photo prints which should swing you in its favour.”

CNET reviews the Kodak EasyShare 5500 and writes;
“Text quality was fairly good, though we would like to see a true black–the EasyShare 5500’s output was more akin to very dark gray. We also saw some wicking, but the quality is acceptable for general use. Color graphics prints were good, with nice color saturation and sharp details, though we noticed a grainy quality to color blocks, while colors looked slightly faded.”

Best in class
“This is the best machine I have ever had. Although being honest, and fair with other reviewers, you may experience some trouble as I did. But for giving this printer less that 5 stars, you must’ve been unlucky! All the specs under the product profile work perfect, so please believe them. I would just add the feature of scanning right to a SD or memory stick with no PC at all. I’ve tried all features, from printing to copying, from faxing to scanning and found them quite easy to work with. Use Kodak high quality photo paper, otherwise your pictures may look blury. And please, get awsome professional-quality pictures at home at a price you could just have ever imagined. “ – by C. G. Quintero

Lovin It
“I recently purchased this Item and its a dream come true for my family and I. All the functions work perfectly and the photo printing is amazing. This handy new machine has not let me down and I am very pleased with it. On top of the wonderful operation of this 5500 the ink is cheap and all of you know how ink prices can get expensive… not with this one. I would recommend this to anyone. The 5500 is dummy proof and by far the easiest all in one machine I have come across. “ – by B. Filip

good printer–great servcie
“Print and scan quality are also better than any other printer I’ve owned. Was so impressed with photo scanning and copying I’m working on making digital copies of hundreds of old snapshots before they deteriorate. Reprints look as good as the original, sometimes better. “ – by gwaihir

Picture quality above average / reliable crisp colors
“This printer a Christmas Gift (2007) , its up and running, pictures are clear, set up, was easy to medium difficulty. The biggest problem encountered was getting the Easy Share Software to work, I rebooted and reloaded the software,many times, so I could use the program to print 4×6 continously. This printer needs a new firmware update, to address, running out of paper , or running out of ink, the printer seems to quit or stall . I have scanned, its easy, copying is easy, I have printed 8×10’s and felt like the image and quality is above many printers I have encountered.” – by Pegs Tresures

Great all-in-one printer
“I purchased the 5500 Kodak EasyShare printer three months ago, it replaced a HP 2175 printer. The HP cartridges were very expensive, plus the draft printing mode did not print up to par.I also had to change the HP 57 to a HP 58 cartridge just for printing photos. I have used everything on the Kodak except the fax mode, the two sided feature is great, the draft mode is just as good as the final mode on the HP, it scanned great and the pictures were A1. The Kodak cartridges cost aprox. $10 for black and $15 for color,it’s a little less if you get the combo pack, and since I do a lot of printing this is a big savings. The Kodak cartridges last a lot longer than the HP’s. The HP is a very good printer and it starts faster than the Kodak, but overall the 5500 is a better bang for the money. “ – by Retired and ready to move

Great Printer Works on Mac with new Software
“Although several people have reported that the printer will not work with the New Leopard operating system, Kodak did come up with a fix and it works just great for those who bought theirs before October. Newer versions of the printer come with the new software But if not,” – by M. Hollander

“The idea of faxing is pretty archaic these days. If I need to fax, I send it directly from my computer. To diss this amazing printer because of its faxing flaw is ridiculous. As a photographer/graphic artist/writer, this printer is a dream. I love it. And thank god for the cheap printer cartridges.” – by Russell G. Lavoie
