The Kodak EasyShare 5300 is a multifunction color inkjet printer that does just what it's name implies: makes it easy to share your photos, whether you need to make digital copies or prints. It has a fast print speed of up to 32 pages per minute for black and 22 pages per minute for color, and has the ability to scan and copy as well. Printer ink costs are very reasonable, thanks to the efficient Kodak 5300 ink system.
In order to live up to its "EasyShare" name, the 5300 includes some intuitive ways of getting photos into the device, with a flatbed scanner, memory card slots, and a USB port on the front which can connect directly to a camera with PictBridge. Once the photos are loaded or scanned, users can use the full-color 3 inch LCD to perform edits directly, or use the intuitive software on their computer to make even more changes. The software also helps users share their photos online, though it doesn't easily tie into some popular sites such as Facebook without a little extra work.
Unlike some inkjet models that use multiple cartridges for each color, there are only two Kodak 5300 ink cartridges in the printer ink system. This simplifies the process of replacing EasyShare 5300 ink cartridges, though it can sometimes result in a bit more wasted ink. EasyShare 5300 ink is very affordable, however, and using compatible Kodak 5300 ink is even more cost-effective.
In their review of the 5300, Cnet.com praised its quality prints and scans, as well as the dedicated paper tray. They also liked its low ink costs but felt that more editing features could have been included on the control panel.
Overall, the Kodak 5300 offers an easy-to-use experience for photo enthusiasts and home users. It can print on a wide range of media, and the results are very impressive.
