Kodak ESP C310
Two years ago, I purchased the Kodak ESP C310 printer for my home. The printer, which I ordered online through Kodak and arrived in my home, in New York City, is color black. The ESP C310 is a printer; a copier and a scanner, with the ability to use different sized paper and adjust the printer paper insert area.
When I received the printer, it was very easy to connect to my wireless network at home and the process of installing the CD on my computer was very easy as well. However, currently, the printer will at times not connect to my wireless network.
At times, I have to turn the printer off and on, in order for it to print wirelessly. Similarly, I was easily able to connect an app on my iPhone to the printer and currently, I am able to print pictures from my iPhone.
The ink cartridges for the all in one ESP C310 are reasonably priced, compared to the cost of ink cartridges for my previous printer. The black ink lasts for approximately two months in my household, about two hundred pages; similarly with the color ink.
When the ink is running low, the machine signals that it is running low and I am able to purchase the ink in advance. Changing the ink cartridge is really simple and easily done.
However, afterwards, I also run a nudge clean on the printer, because otherwise, a smudge of ink appears on any paper printed. Paper inserted into the device tends to fold and fall forward, so I place a book on top of the printer, to prevent the paper from falling forward.
The printer quality is great, as is the scanning and copying. Although with black and white copying of colored material, the colored areas come our really dark black in the copy. In terms of printing, it takes a while to begin the printing process.
Approximately one minute after I hit the print button, then the ESP C310 begins to quickly print. Scanning material is really simple and the software is great, it scans clearly; although, there are no advanced options after scanning the material.
The controls on the printer are really easy to use and straightforward; I hardly ever use them, except to scan and copy.
Overall, the Kodak ESP C310 all in one photo inkjet is a great printer to use at home for typical printing needs; however, it is not a proper printer for a professional setting. I would totally recommend the ESP C310.
