Our take on the Kodak ESP 9250

by Dave Bar
Kodak

Print crisp documents and colorful, long-lasting photos from anywhere in your home or office with Kodak's versatile ESP 9250 all-in-one printer. It features built-in Wi-Fi®, so multiple users on a wireless computer network can enjoy easy access. The printer's simplified Wi-Fi setup and intuitive control panel make it easier than ever to get started. It's more than just a printer, too — the ESP 9250 also makes quick work of all your scanning, copying, and faxing tasks. And Kodak's highly affordable replacement ink cartridges help you save big on printing costs.

Easy image transfer and speedy printing
The ESP 9250 connects seamlessly to your favorite mobile devices. Print photos wirelessly from your iPhone®, iPad®, iPod touch®, or your BlackBerry® smartphone. The '9250 also prints directly from most newer digital cameras via a handy, front-panel USB input. You can even pop your camera's memory card into the printer's built-in card reader. You'll get vivid 4" x 6" borderless photos in as little as 29 seconds. Or create large, beautifully detailed prints up to 8-1/2" x 11" to delight your friends and family.

Efficient multi-document operation and two-sided printing
The ESP 9250's high-capacity automatic document feeder lets you tackle big jobs in a hurry. It holds up to 30 pages of originals for batch scanning, copying, or faxing. Two-sided copying means you can transfer two document pages onto a single sheet of paper — saving trees and money. The '9250 even boasts dual paper trays to give you plenty of storage space, and for switching from text to photo printing without having to swap out your paper supplies.

Fax your documents and forms
A fax machine is a handy device for any home or office. The ESP 9250's built-in phone dialer holds up to 60 of your most frequently called numbers for quick and easy connections. The printer's 100-page fax memory stores your incoming messages — a must-have feature if you ever run out of paper or ink in the middle of an important transmission. See more info on this item

    So far I have been having connection problems. I attempted to set up with the wireless connection by following the instructions included with the printer and was unsuccessful. I was able to contact tech support and the connection was made but as soon as I unplugged the printer the connection was lost and I have not been able to connect again.

    Exactly as described and very consistent with products from Crutchfield; that is, received in good order, delivered as promised and pre sales help was knowledgeable and helpful.
    Pros:
    Very simple to set up, very good quality for photos and quiet enough to not be the main focus in the room.
    Cons:
    A bit slow but not more than it was predicted and rated to be.

    Kodak ESP9250 Won't Work with XP

    Written By Phil, Olympia on Wednesday, September 21, 2011
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    The usual excellent Crutchfield service. Printer would not print from my Windows XP machine, connected with USB cable. Spent 8 hrs. troubleshooting and reinstalling software. The next day 6 hrs. with Kodak tech support (India)--they really don't know the software well. The third day with a tech and supervisor who took control of my computer, tinkered with registry. No success at all, still won't print after this final four hours of on-the-phone tech assistance. They crashed my computer but helped with recovery. I did get it to print with a loaner Windows 7 laptop, but even then not from Pagemaker files--fussy, incomplete software. I need to return this printer. The Kodak solution was to recommend that I buy a new computer but this machine was supposed to support Windows XP SP2.

    Kodak ESP9250 All in one Printer

    Written By Ro R, Pompton Lakes, NJ on Friday, September 02, 2011
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I owned a Kodak AIO 5100 Printer and had need for a fax solution so I purchased the 9250. I was extremely pleased with the photo quality and low cost of the ink as well as the general scanning and printing characteristics of the 5100 printer. The 9250 built on this quality with a duplex and fax feature. I was happy find that the fax feature works seamlessly with my answering machine so that I do not have to monitor it manually. It will also automatically select letter or photo paper without manual intervention.
