Pros Easy to set up printer, install cartridges (color and b/w) and wireless printing capabilities. Fairly quick printing, Fairly quiet, good scanning software and quality.
Cons Paper feed entails significant bending; hence thick paper(invitations, cards)can't be loaded. Duplex function worked well initially, but then paper jam occurred, and it was fully cleared, however the error message remained rendering printer unusable.
Summary Easy to set up, reliable wireless printer for standard low volume printing, scanning or photo printing at home. Print quality of the photos was fair - not spectacular. Cannot insert thick paper stock such as cards or invitations without encountering paper jam or failure to "grab" the paper and guide it through the printer feed entirely. Duplex function is a failure even with standard copy paper. Paper jam messages persist after thorough clearing and the printer will not respond at all once that occurs. Customer service was polite but not helpful in this matter. 18 months after purchasing this printer, I am off to buy another one -- not a Kodak. My ancient Dell Photo 926 was the reliable backup and did a much better job of handling card stock given the straighter pathway in the paper feed.
Pros Good photo printing
Less expensive ink (still not cheap!) $5.00 bucks per cartridge would be cheap.

Cons False paper jams that take 10-45 minutes to clear.
Slow printing , slow scans,
No top load paper tray for multi-page scanning.
Summary This Kodak 7250 has intermittent paper jam error's on a regular basis. It seems to happen every 2 to 3 weeks without fail. Not so funny thing is there is no real paper jam, its a false detection but the error has to be cleared before it will print again.It takes 2-5 cycles of pulling out the tray - wait for it and pushing it back in then wait for it again... I have gone through all of their troubleshooting steps repeatedly, which consumes a lot of valuable time. There seems to be a design flaw. The print quality is fine for my purpose when its printing.Photo printing is pretty good but the intermittent ghost paper jams make it a fail over all.
Pros Prints good when it works.
Cons Ink cartridges cannot be refilled so the price for ink is no better than others. Plus you get to fill up landfills with catridges. Wireless connectivity is crap.
My first wireless and my last Kodak. Wireless works about 50% of the time at best.
Summary I hope other Kodak printers are better otherwise I don't see them ever being a player in this arena.

Pros Absolutely NONE!
Cons I get maybe 40 pages per cartridge and these are not even color heavy pages. When I print anything in color, the colors are mixed up. Purple comes out brown, red is a weird orange-y color, and it won't even print anything in yellow. I have bought 12 cartr
Summary Will be taking a baseball bat to this thing and buying a new one. Going back to HP. NEVER had a problem with that one. Too bad I gave our old one away. It could also hold way more paper and we could bleed the ink cartridges dry before we had to buy new ones.
Pros Low cost ink and Looks are nice works with Iphone, ipads, text print is great, picture printing is above average. set up was easy didnt even read the manual
Cons havnt come across any yet
Summary i dont know why i see so many bad reviews, my guess is the person is down scaling from a pro printer that cost $1000. but i tell you i had an Hp photosmart and every time i turned it on and warmed up half the ink cartridge went with the warm up. Ink is expensive $60 to refuel.
if your a college kid like me and use it at home and print a lot of documents and some pictures (by the way why print anymore when you have it on an iphone) ink is cheap i love this printer would recomend it
