  • Kodak EASYSHARE 5500 InkJet Printer

    Jun 30, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: The ink uses pigments, not dyes - Cartridges are very inexpensive, fast printing
    Cons: Cartridges are inexpensive, but they get used up in half the time

    Summary: Just in time for Christmas 2007, me and my wife caught the somewhat informative infomercial on TV that is dedicated to the brand new Kodak 500 series printers. It was fairly timely too because I had just finished painfully spending about 60 dollars on ... read more

  • My wife is laughing at me - Kodak AIO 5500

    Dec 15, 2008 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Ink costs much less, prints were good when working.
    Cons: You may spend as much on printheads as you save on ink.

    Summary: I bought one of the first Kodak AIO 5500s out, and it worked pretty well for a while, but then stopped printing black. I thought I had messed up the firmware upgrade that Kodak made available after a few months. When I called their tech ... read more

    The 5500 only cost $99.00 at Sam's Club.

    Cons: The 5500 software does not work with Windows System Pack 3.

    Summary: The 5500 is a cool looking machine, but it is full of flaws. I bought my 5500 in Sam's Club for $99.00, but I should have saved my money. My problems started when I began to scan. I was first disappointed with the time it took to feed and scan ... read more

  • Don't Buy If You Will Use This For Scanning

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Good quality prints, fast (after initial delay), faxes great.
    Cons: Scanning software buggy and crashes often (particularly if you are scanning documents) requiring multiple reboots.

    Summary: I bought the printer in February because of the lure of cheap ink since I was sick of paying through the nose for ink cartridges. I was also miffed at HP for forcing me to purchase a new scanner when I bought a Vista computer. Even though the scanner ... read more

  • Kodak 5500 AiO

    Jun 15, 2008 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: None from my Point of view
    Cons: Noisy, printhead unreliability which seems to be a problem with several other owners.

    Summary: I purchased my Kodak 5500 AiO in January 2008 through a home shopping channel. Though it seemed to be quite noisy, I was satisfied with the document and photo printing outcomes. Things went down hill after replacing the ink for the first time around two ... read more

    Pros: Copier
    Cons: Poor print quality, horrible sounds, overpriced, doesn't work with mac

    Summary: I was very excited to get this printer - so much so that I paid the full price at Best Buy. What a major disappointment right from the start. The instructions were vague and I needed to install software for my Mac. Had problems upfront getting the ... read more

    Pros: HAHAHAHA!
    Cons: KODAK 5500 AIO

    Summary: I made the mistake of purchasing TWO of these machines for my home office, and they have both had the identical problems....the auto-feed scanner function doesn't scan more than one page (the others scan as blank white pages), the paper jams constantly ... read more

    Pros: Looks nice.
    Cons: See above

    Summary: I am very disappointed with the Kodak 5500 and will be returning it to Kodak. Right out of the box I felt the setup instructions were vague and I feel the same way about instructions for Scanning and photo reproduction. Print quality is poor. Black and ... read more

  • A Good Printer...When It Works

    Jan 31, 2008 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Low Ink Cost, Photo Print Quality, Good Software Package
    Cons: Very Large, Printhead/Ink Cartridge Setup Can Cause Errors

    Summary: This printer seemed attractive to me due to the low cost of ink which blows away any competition. I found it at a great price which helped since this model can be a bit pricey. It's easy to set up out of the box and the Kodak Easyshare software that ... read more

  • The Kodak Easyshare 5500 a Jack of All Trades

    Jan 16, 2008 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: It does it all - very easily! Scan, Copy, Fax, Print! Low cost ink!
    Cons: Probably due to it's intended simplicity, there are few adjustment and settings options.

    Summary: This printer was a Christmas gift and a replacement for an HP 722 DeskJet with ink cartridges that are quickly becoming obsolete and very hard to find. I had a heck of a time getting my Athelon based E-Machine to work with this printer. A Macbook and ... read more

    Jan 1, 2008 by

    Pros: Works with Vista, cheap ink, separate 4x6 photo tray, double-sided printing options, nice editing software!
    Cons: A little bulky, trouble figuring out the photo tray (slide in to print-4x6). Otherwise, awesome!

    Summary: Being someone with a small home office AND a growing desire to print pictures as I go, from home, this seemed like the perfect option. I picked it up at Best Buy, during the after Turkey Day frenzy, and managed to get it for $199 PLUS three free ... read more

    Pros: Brilliant Color prints. Crisp, clean letter writing.
    Cons: Units tested were not up to "Home Office" Standards. Poor telephone support. Bulky.

    Summary: I would like to praise this product as the last one I purchased did a great job as far as printing photographs is concerned; however, the first three that I purchased had to be taken back because of defective print heads (it seems that none of the ... read more

    Pros: All-in-one functionality. Quality of print. Ease of setup. Kodak name.
    Cons: Initially defective print head. Some features are difficult to program. Some signs of cheap construction.

    Summary: I was interested in this particular printer ever since I first saw the display at my local Best Buy store. Normal price was $299 but a sale went into effect and I saved 10%. The big appeal of this printer for me was it's 4-in-1 functionality, the Kodak ... read more

    Pros: I feel like I can actually print photos from home now!
    Cons: It's big and a little noisy.

    Summary: I bought the EasyShare 5500 for home and home office use. I needed the auto-duplexer and fax features and was frankly tired of paying $60 for ink on my old HP every few months. I took Kodak up on their claims of low cost ink after doing a decent amount ... read more

    Pros: Duplex feature is good, colors are good for photos. 
    Cons: Can't get the scan to work, I have to clean print head too often.

    Summary: This is a unit that is supposed to print, scan, copy and fax.  I don't have a land line, so faxing is out, but for the rest of them:Printing-this isn't as fast as I was lead to believe.  I don't use it more than 1-2 times a week, so ... read more

    CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!! **if there's a problem**

    Prints quickly.

    Fairly quiet.

    Easy to use.
