Kodak EasyShare 5500 All-in-One printer review
To start it should be noted that the Kodak EasyShare 5500 All in One printer is a larger version of the EasyShare 5300 to be used in the office setting instead of a smaller home use. Upfront the best feature of this printer is that you get the expected photo print quality from a Kodak product, let’s face it when we think about Kodak we first and foremost think photos. Other great features are two host USB ports, a photo paper tray for size 4x6 photos, and last but very important low cost replacement ink cartridges.
With the Kodak EasyShare 5500 you can fax, copy, scan and print photos directly. Like most printers the copy features are standard with adjusting capabilities such as fit-to-page or poster copies. Unlike the little brother version this printer can copy photographs straight to photo paper. Talking about printing time well it’s not finishing first in the race. To start it needs at least 30 seconds to warm up and will let you know it’s getting ready with some noise. Printing five pages in black and white takes around one minute twelve seconds to come out. Color prints come out after two minutes forty seconds. Overall they are not bad so toughen up and learn patience people.
Let’s talk about printer ink! This printer has a two-tank ink system that holds a black pigment based ink cartridge and color tank that has the standard black, cyan, magenta and yellow plus a clear coating that is applied to photo prints. Kodak has made these 8 color ink cartridges with a low cost in mind and a pretty good page yield per cartridge. So basically you can print around 420 pages for less than $20 dollars when it comes to color prints. There are also XL versions that bump up the amount of pages to 770 black prints per cartridge. In case you were wondering there are compatible Kodak ink cartridges available for about eight dollars and remanufactured Kodak cartridges for less than six.
Being that we are talking about the ink cartridges one of the great things about this printer is the easiness of installation. OEM cartridges come with an orange plastic protection that once you take them off you can click them into place easily. If you work with inkjet printers as much as we do we appreciate easy installing instructions and most of all the actual process to be able to be done by a child ok maybe not a toddler but a ten year old can get it done without problems.
So our verdict about this printer is that if you are looking for great photo printing options on an office all in one printing machine this printer is right for you. Although there are other all in one option out there the low cost on replacement cartridges is a big issue especially in an office setting so keep it in mind.
