The Kodak ESP 3250 provides the essential features that most home users need in an all-in-one inkjet printer, at a price that is extremely affordable. It produces excellent photos with sharp details and vivid colors, and has fast print speeds of around 30 pages per minute for black and 29 pages per minute for color. The cost of printer ink is affordable, as Kodak 3250 ink is some of the least expensive in its class.
Kodak had to make a few tradeoffs to achieve the low price of the 3250, but not as many as you might think. The paper tray is smaller than some models, as it holds only 100 sheets, and the LCD screen on the control panel is only 1.5 inches, compared to more expensive models that feature 3 inch or larger screens. Nearly every other aspect of the machine is comparable to more expensive models in its line, including 1200 dpi scanning resolution and fast printing speeds. The model still includes Kodak's EasyShare software, which makes editing and printing photos very simple.
Unlike some inkjet models, printer ink is not overly expensive. Kodak 3250 ink cartridges are easy to find and very cost-effective. The large capacity of ESP 3250 ink cartridges gives them a low cost per page that keeps operating costs down, and users can purchase compatible ESP 3250 ink instead of OEM versions for even lower prices.
Computer Shopper gave the 3250 a 3 star rating out of 5 in its review. They praised the low cost per page of Kodak 3250 ink, and liked the sharp photo quality and automatic paper detection feature. They found print speeds to be slower than rated, however, and disliked the lack of wireless support.
For home users who need basic features and want a very affordable upfront price, the Kodak 3250 is an excellent choice. The low running costs will keep it affordable into the future as well.
