While the other printers are from Kodak's newer range, the ESP 5250 is a tried and tested model that's been with us for some time. Now priced at around the £80 mark on Kodak's online shop (although you can shave another £5 or so...

For the price (over $150), the Kodak ESP 5250 didn't perform as well as I hoped. In that price range it competes with some excellent Epson all-in-ones (including the WorkForce 610 and the cheaper NX 515) and even some entry-level Brother printers...

Although the Wi-Fi in the Kodak ESP 5250 is tempting, other than that this MFP is an unremarkable device that happens to have very inexpensive inks. While it would fit nicely into a light-duty environment, other models in this price range are faster...

Kodak's upgrade for the ESP 5 is a curious trade-off in order to keep the price low, losing memory card and USB input options and gaining Wi-Fi and a marked improvement in photo quality. Kodak - ESP 5250 price Buy Kodak ESP 5250 securely online at a...

From the introduction of Kodak's pigment-based inkjets, we've been impressed with the concept. The finely ground pigments matched to the extensive paper grades and finishes all barcoded for identification by the printer promised a level of...

If Kodak's is equivalent to an ESP 3.25, the ESP 5250 is like an ESP 5.25. It takes the earlier machine and gives it a tweak, specifically adding wireless connection. This is an extra convenience, but it's about the only improvement over the...
