We purchased this printer from Pixmania after performing some through research as to the best multifunction printers on the market that produced cheaps prints per page, but to my surprise, the printer continually produced blank prints. After playing around with it for a while, and contacting Kodak online technical support, they suggested that the print head needed replacing.

They quickly sent us a replacement print head free of charge, but unfortunately it had no effect. We returned the product back to Pixmania in France for an exchange. Although it took a while to get through to their customer service department, collection was arranged and a new Kodak ESP 7 was sent through in about a week.

When it finally arrived we were extremely pleased with the product. It didn't take too long to set up. It took a bit longer to set up the wireless but found it was easier to set up if you broadcast the SSID of your network. Some people might find it helpful to put the printer in a different room, but we ended up setting the printer next to the PC anyway after trying this for a few days!

63 sheets of Kodak photo quality paper was provided for free, and the photo prints produced are hard to tell the difference between photos from the lab. Although we probably wouldn't do this that often as a few high quality print outs drain the ink very quickly.

Standard text prints are of an excellent quality. Draft printing is very fast. The printer includes a duplexer so pages can be printed on both sides without requring user intervention - which saves paper.

Replacement cartridges were a big factor in the product choice and are relatively cheap, we easily found a genuine colour cartridge on the high street costing £10. Colour cartridges come as one unit, so if one of the colours run out, its time to replace the cartridge.

The flatbed scanner is pretty good, and produces sharp images. It works great as a photocopier and we found it easy to use.

Flash cards can be plugged directly into the printer to print images without the need for you to switch on the PC and there is a nice little display on the front panel to preview these images.

No real problems with the printer, although the paper has jammed a couple of times.
