I find it hard to bang the drum loud enough for Kodak printers, this all-in-one small home-office model being the latest.
I’ve discussed Kodak’s iconoclastic view on ink prices here before — the bottom line is that they are substantially cheaper than the big brands. No one, however well-off, can be thrilled when they find themselves paying the best part of £100 for ink. So when you fill up your Kodak for just £20 or £30, it feels vaguely naughty.
The ESP Office 6150 is a printer (two sides when required), scanner, photocopier and fax (for the seriously retro). It’s easy to use and incredibly well behaved.
As for photo quality, I would say the 6150 is as good as a fancy eight-ink machine from one of the big guys. This really is a great, sensible product based on a great, sensible idea.
