Kodak Cites QualityLogic Report: “We Print Cheaper”

Kodak Logo

Kodak is reinforcing its claim that its low-cost inks can save customers up to 50 percent in printing costs. The company contracted a third party testing lab, QualityLogic Inc., to compare Kodak’s all-in-one printer ink yields to those of 12 other industry-leading printers.

The analysis according to Kodak confirms that in every case Kodak EasyShare AIO printers offer consumers more pages for every $5 of ink purchased. Savings are based on printing of documents and photos, using average ink costs of comparable consumer inkjet printers.

QualityLogic tested the Kodak EasyShare 5300 All-in-One printer and competitive models for page yields using the ISO 24711, 24712 and 19752 standards for color and monochrome page yields, and their own methodology for photo yield. The page yields were then used by Kodak to determine cost-per-page findings.

There is little argument of course regarding print cost savings. The question is on the quality of the print. Some say it’s “blah,” some say it’s good. Try before you buy.
