Kodak announces new multifunction inkjet printers

Kodak to produce full-size inkjet printers

Though Kodak has recently released several 4-by-6-inch snapshot printers (EasyShare Photo Printer 500, for example), the company is now set to launch its first full-size printers in roughly five years.

The US$150 EasyShare 5100 All-in-One and $200 EasyShare 5300 All-in-One printers are due in early March, while the US$300 EasyShare 5500 All-in-One (equipped with 100-sheet memory, 33.6-kbps fax capability, and 35-sheet legal-size automatic document feeder) is slated to appear in May.

Each has two USB ports to print directly from a USB thumb drive or digital camera. To further simplify printing without a PC, the EasyShare 5300 and 5500 also have built-in media card readers and LCD displays (3 inches and 2.4 inches, respectively).

For paper handling, each model in the EasyShare All-in-One (or AiO) line has a 100-sheet input tray, a 20-sheet 4-by-6-inch photo-paper feeder, and a 50-sheet output tray. The duplex attachment (for two-sided printing) bundled with the EasyShare 5300 will be an optional extra for the other two models.

Another option--a Bluetooth 2.0 attachment--will enable wireless printing from Bluetooth-equipped notebooks, PCs, camera phones, and digital cameras. All models will feature the same printing speeds and letter-size CCD scanner for copying; they will also support the Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Mac OS X operating systems.

Besides being available directly from Kodak itself, units in North America will be sold exclusively through consumer electronics retail giant Best Buy. (Kodak also plans to release the printers in certain European countries in May and in Australia and New Zealand later this year.)

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
