Kodak EasyShare 5300: Don't Believe The Hype

Though new to the world of desktop printing, Kodak still has an illustrious past with some excellent products. But its reputation could be going down the drain thanks to some recent claims the photo-centric company made. Over at Pop Photo, the boys put the Kodak EasyShare 5300 All-in-one to the test to see if could truly crank out 180 borderless color photos. It looks like Kodak got a little excited when making claims about the 5300, because the printer cranked out only 165 color photos.

Now Kodak is claiming you can make prints for 10-cents a pop with the EasyShare 5300. According to Pop Photo, it really breaks down to about 11.5-cents a print and even then Pop Photo complained of low color saturation and shoddy printing. These things are fairly new, so we’ll give it the old hands on when it hits our doorstep and let you know what’s going on here.
