Kodak has been advertising heavily that their printers will save you major bucks on the price of ink. We have all known for years that many of the inkjet printers have been sold at production cost or below to hook you on their exorbitantly prices ink. Many of us have had mixed experiences trying to use compatible inkjet cartridges. Back when I was repairing printers, we had an inkjet come in looking as if a small animal had been slaughtered in the printer. Think about how fast that print head moves and then picture a leak in a refillable cartridge, pretty ugly it was! Compatible inks have come a long way and that is one method of cutting inkjet printing costs.
The new Kodak printers seem to have similar specifications to it’s competitors. I compared the $149.00 range and there were distinct similiarties and all of them had more expensive ink than the Kodak. I did notice that the Lexmark X6675 has a five year warranty if you register it. That is 4 years longer than the rest of the pack.
If you are getting a free printer when you buy your computer that makes your decision easier. $100.00 will buy a fair amount of ink. It does seem that Kodak is bucking the industry and offering a viable alternative that WILL cost a lot less to print. Those of us with working printers can only try to find acceptable compatible ink cartridges to combat the outrageous ink prices the rest of the vendors are demanding.

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't whether I got it free or NOT!
