The Kodak ESP 5 is a fairly standard all-in-one inkjet printer with included software to help you turn photos into creative projects. It has print speeds of up to 30 pages per minute for black and 29 pages per minute for color, and can print borderless 4x6 photos in around 30 seconds, making it well-suited for photo enthusiasts. The two-cartridge system keeps printer ink costs low and the replacement process simple, as Kodak 5 ink is very affordable.
The best photo printer in the world doesn't do users any good if it is too difficult to use, so Kodak made the ESP 6 very easy to use with the included EasyShare software, which helps users perform everything from basic touch-ups to complex edits very easily. It can reduce red eye, restore colors to old photos, and even retouch skin blemishes. Memory card slots make it easy to get photos into the machine or the software directly from a digital camera.
Kodak has also made great strides in reducing printer ink costs for their inkjet models, and Kodak 5 ink cartridges are no exception. ESP 5 ink cartridges are also simplified into only a two-cartridge system to make them easier to replace. The machine doesn't require special ESP 5 ink for photo printing either, unlike some competing models.
PCWorld reviewed the ESP 5, giving it a 3 out of 5 star rating. They liked the low cost of Kodak 5 ink and the intuitive control panel, as well as the included software. They found its print speed to be slower than rated, and scan and copy quality to be lacking.
Overall, the Kodak 5 is a great choice for beginners and advanced users alike. The EasyShare software makes many operations very simple, while speed and quality are both excellent.
