"You HAVE to have COLOR Ink to print in BLACK&WHITE."1.5 starson by bobby-bobbins
Pros: It works for what that's worth.
Cons: You HAVE to have COLOR INK to print in BLACK&WHITE. This is a scam product made to keep you buying the color cartridge no matter what.
Summary: Apparently "The advanced printing technology" that comes in this printer must use "Small amounts of color ink" to print quality "grey scales".
I have confirmed by calling KODAK and their online help. The printer will not print anything at all (including black)without a color cartridge with some amount of ink in it.
We print 90% black. The black cartridge ran out first. With in 100 pages (probably more like 30)of printing only black pages, the color cartridge when out.
This is a scam product made to keep you buying the color cartridge no matter what. They recommend you setting the print quality to "draft" (as apposed to "normal" or "quality") to conserve color ink.
I have had it for about 6 months now and I'm really missing my old laser printer that got 2000 pages per cartridge.
