Kodak ESP 9 Reviews

Pocket-lint reviews the Kodak ESP 9 and writes;
“Scan speed and quality, like all the timings here, will be dependent on the system you are using. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the scanning which took just over 6 minutes to scan (using Wi-Fi) an A4 photo at 600ppi creating a 98MB file. Scan quality is good (up to optical 2400ppi) with faithful colours and good detail.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

Macworld reviews the Kodak ESP 9 and writes;
“The print tests were more impressive. In our Graphics: Fine Lines and Gradients test, the ESP 9 received a Good rating, with one juror noting the printer’s struggles at producing an even gray gradient. In our Text Quality test and 22MB Photoshop image test, the ESP 9 was awarded a Very Good rating. The Kodak paper, which we used for our final jury results, did in fact make a difference in producing sharper and more vibrant prints than when printing with plain paper.”
Rating: ★★★☆☆

PCAdvisor reviews the Kodak ESP 9 and writes;
“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 volume up and you can tune out the long and loud printing cycles.”
Rating: ★★★☆☆

Ephotozine reviews the Kodak ESP 9 and writes;
“If the ESP9 wasn’t an all in one and simply offered printing or printing and faxing, it would be a sterling unit. The printing performance is fast, smooth and precise with some lovely pictures being produced. Scanning is an altogether different matter and I’ve split the performance into printing and scanning because the rating won’t show a fair appraisal otherwise.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

Printercomparison reviews the Kodak ESP 9 and writes;
“The black and white prints were good; no noticeable smudges or faded letters. The print speeds did not live up to the advertised speeds. Kodak has 32 pages per minute as the print speed for the ESP 9 but it was considerably less, even in draft mode. It took two minutes for the ESP 9 to print 30 pages in draft mode. However, I would say that Kodak has an excellent draft mode. The black text was almost as dark as it was in normal mode.”
rating: N/A

Computershopper reviews the Kodak ESP 9 and writes;
“Photo print quality is very good. Images are bright and have plenty of contrast, with generally pleasing though not entirely accurate colors. With 3,840 nozzles on the printhead, the ESP 9 is capable of very fine text and image detail, so monochrome type is clean, dense, well-formed, and very legible, even down to 3 points in size.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Trustedreviews reviews the Kodak ESP 9 and writes;
“As Kodak continues to produce printers with very low consumable costs, the value of its machines has to take that into account. However, the ESP 9 has a few rough edges, not least the noise levels it produces when printing, it’s relatively sluggish speed and the driver problem we noticed. This is a fair home office all-in-one, with quality print delivered slowly.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

PCMag reviews the Kodak ESP 9 and writes;
“Output quality is above par for text, but a touch below par for graphics and photos. More than half of the fonts on our text tests were both easily readable and well formed at 5 points, with several passing both thresholds at 4 points. The characters don’t offer the same crisp, clean edges you’ll get from a laser, but they are perfectly acceptable for most business documents.”

Kodak ESP 9 User Reviews

Easy to use with great picture quality
“I absolutely love my new Kodak printer. I set up the printer on my home wireless network, and it couldn’t have been easier. Great wireless photo and document printing, as well as great wireless scanning. The software included for the Mac is great, and the ink is so inexpensive! I would highly recommend this printer. “ – by J. Gaudino

A wonderful machine
“Overall, this is a really super nice machine and I’m very glad to have purchased mine. They are a little pricey but I hope to use it so much that I eventually offset the cost of the printer with the cheaper ink. So far, we are off to a good start! “ – by Kelly Kniceley

Kodak ESP9 All-In-One Printer
“This printer has everything you need. Produces lab quality pictures and printed materials come out flawless. The big plus is the cost of the ink – black $10 and color $15. I can’t say enough about this printer. It has to be the best one I have ever owned. “ – by Robert E. Mcginnis
Rating: ★★★★★

“I printed out 2 documents, one in color and the other in black and white, both came out perfectly. No errors in printing and the colors and blacks were perfect. I have had my printer for 3 days now and I am still printing photos, so far I have printed out about 12 4×6 color photos and about 40 black and white documents (front and back sides with the 2 sided printing option) My ink cartridges are now showing 60% full in color and 70% full in black. One thing you want to make sure of is that you use only KODAK paper because when I used my old HP photo paper, the colors were not as vivid as when I used the Kodak paper.” – by Sandra F. Lewis

Fabulous purchase for small business
“I love this machine! I have owned Lexmark’s and Epson’s and have always been dismayed at the cost of color and black ink cartridges. You tend to accept that as the norm because there was no alternative. I am so grateful for this machine. I use the fax in manual mode through my business line and all you have to do is press “234” on your phone when a fax call comes in, and “kazaam” your fax answers the call! The scanner is a flatbed scanner that can save the document as a picture or a pdf, which is very handy. The copier gives very good definition, and the printer is…well…the bomb! The duplexer is the most fabulous design.” – by Optix
