Although its name might sound more like a piece of audio equipment, the Kodak Hero 6.1 is actually an impressive all-in-one inkjet printer with a very robust feature set that will appeal to home and small office users alike. Print speeds are a little slow, at 8.5 pages per minute in black and 5.5 pages per minute in color, but the low cost of printer ink may make up for it, as Kodak 6.1 ink is very affordably-priced.
In contrast to many models designed for home use, the 6.1 includes some features that small business users will appreciate. It has a 35-sheet automatic document feeder for quickly scanning multiple pages and it support duplex printing for scanning both sides of the page. The duplexer can process copies, scans, or faxes for true versatility. There is built-in support for both wired and wireless network connectivity, making it easy to integrate into a shared network environment and make the device available to all computers in the house or office.
When it comes time to replace the printer ink, users will find that Kodak 6.1 ink cartridges are more affordable than the average inkjet model. Hero 6.1 ink cartridges have a large capacity of around 420 pages each, which gives users a low cost per page that can help save costs with each page printed. Compatible Hero 6.1 ink is also available at even lower prices.
In their review of the 6.1, Computer Shopper gave it an Editor's Rating of 3.5 out of 5, praising its wide range of features and excellent print quality. The only major downside they found was its slow printing speed.
It is hard to find an all-in-one machine with more functionality than the 6.1 for such a low price. As long as buyers don't mind its slower speeds, its great feature set and the low cost of Kodak 6.1 ink make it a real bargain.
