The Kodak ESP 9 uses a similar design to other color inkjet printers in its line, but adds professional features such as an automatic document feeder to make it a better device for small business use. Print speeds are fast, at up to 32 pages per minute for black, and 30 pages per minute for color. Printer ink costs are very low, thanks to the affordability of Kodak 9 ink.
Some of the business-centric improvements to the ESP 9 include an automatic document feeder that can hold up to 30 pages, and both wired and wireless network support, which makes it easy and convenient to support multiple computers and devices with one machine. Making copies is a simple one-touch process, and the machine does not need to be connected to a computer to use the feature. A dedicated photo tray makes it easy and fast to print popular photo formats, and borderless printing is supported.
Replacing printer ink is a breeze, as the unit uses a two-cartridge inkjet system instead of multiple tanks, which can cause confusion and extra cost. ESP 9 ink cartridges are very affordable, and the Kodak 9 ink cartridges have a large yield of around 420 pages, which means they need to be replaced less often. Compatible ESP 9 ink is available for a fraction of the cost of OEM versions.
PC Magazine gave the ESP 9 a rating of 3.5 stars out of 5. They praised the low cost of Kodak 9 ink and the inclusion of an ADF and wireless support. They disliked the small paper tray, and found it performed slowly with some business applications.
Overall, the Kodak ESP 9 is an excellent all-in-one printer that could work well in either a home or small office, as long as its small paper tray is not a problem. Its fast speeds and excellent photo quality make it a good value for the price.
