Approximately 9 months ago I purchased a Kodak All-In-One printer purely based on their advertising claims, that their printers allow you to print loads for a low cost.
However, since I've had the printer i've gone through 3 sets of genuine Kodak cartridges (at a total cost of £75.00) but I've only printed about 300 pages.
I contacted Kodak technical support. They informed me that their printers have been tested to operate at their most efficient when they are printing 350 pages continuously. They do not operate efficiently or economically when used for small or infrequent print jobs.
This is fine budding the novelists out there but for most home users, printing tends to be a few emails, some pictures and a few small to medium size documents. Surely, people regularly printing 350 pages in one go would look to use a laser printer, for speed if nothing else.
I am completely unimpressed with Kodaks excuse for misselling their products and to demonstrate this I will not be buying a 4th batch of ink for my printer. I would strongly advise that you consider alternative brands before buying Kodak.
