Kodak on Friday released a new multifunction printer (MFP), the ESP 9250. The new device replaces the ESP 9 as Kodak’s top-of-the-line MFP.
The $250 ESP 9250 has a four-color inkjet printer, and uses two ink cartridges: one black ink cartridge, and one color cartridge with cyan, yellow, and magenta inks. The standard replacement black ink replacement cartridge is $10; a high-volume black ink cartridge is available for $17. The color replacement cartidge is $18. The ESP 9250 uses the same ink cartirdges as the ESP 9, but a Kodak representative said that the inks have be reformulated to produce better-looking output.
According to Kodak, the printer is rated at 32 pages per minute (ppm) for monochrome output, and 30 ppm for color. A 4-by-6 photo takes about 29 seconds to print. The printer has a color resolultion of 9600 dots per inch (dpi) and a monochrome resolution of 1200-by-1200.
The flatbed scanner has an optical resolution of 2400 dpi. The scanner can also be used as a copier, with a copy speed of 27 ppm for monochrome and 26 ppm for color.
The ESP 9250 has built-in Wi-Fi, Ethernet, and USB. The card slot can be used to print directly from memory cards. The device also supports Kodak’s Pic Flick App, which allows for printing from a iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad.
