Kodak ESP-7 All-in-One Printer Review
Author: Sandy Berger
Type: Reviews Last Updated: September 29, 2009
Page: 1 of 6

Kodak is one of the most recognizable names in the photo industry. It seems logical that a company so well-versed in photo developing and printing would create an outstanding photo printer. With Kodak’s claim of having the cheapest ink costs, we were enticed to give the Kodak ESP-7 a closer look.

Kodak’s lineup of ESP printers currently includes two ESP-3’s, two ESP-5’s, the ESP-7 that we reviewed, and the ESP-9. All are all-in-one printers that can print, copy and scan. Their suggested prices currently range from USD 99.99 to USD 299.99. At a suggested price of USD 199.99 the ESP-7 is right in the middle of the pack.

As shown in Figure 1, the Kodak ESP 7 comes in a bright yellow and white box.

Inside the box, you find the printer, nicely wrapped and padded (as shown in Figure 2). You will also find the ink cartridges covered in plastic and the print head encased in foil, as shown in Figure 3.

Unpacking the box and the printing materials reveals the printer itself, shown in Figure 4, along with other materials, shown in Figure 5. These include the Kodak black ink cartridge, Kodak color ink cartridge, paper sample pack, power supply, adapter cord, Startup Guide, and Kodak Printer Software  for the PC and the Mac. The sample pack includes 5 sheets of 4" x 6" (10 x 15 cm) Kodak Ultra Premium Photo Paper and 10 sheets of letter-sized (8 ½" x 11", 216 × 279 mm) Ultimate Paper.
