hello,

few years ago, when buying my Canon i865, i had found a great printer review site, which tested text sharpness, print ecnonomy (cost per print) and much more.. but i can't find it now!

does anyone know of any such site out there..?

thank you.

There doesn't seem to be much of it done any more — there are so many of the things around now, and models change so often (and often change so little...), that no one could keep up to date on them.

Unless it's a breakthrough model the best you can hope for these days is that one of the popular mags will do a brief review that will be copied widely on the 'net.

That's probably why you didn't get useful response.

Steve just finished two new reviews:


Sony Picture Station DPP-FP90






Kodak EasyShare 5500 All-In-One Printer





He doesn't do the volume of printers that he does cameras.

You'll find reviews of more printers here:

I work at Kodak and we are pretty excited about the new Kodak AiO inkjet printers. These printers are changing the game with inexpensive ink. $9.99 for black ink and $14.99 for color ink. I really like them for crafting and scrapbooks because the prints come out dry and ready to use and they last a lifetime. You can read more about the printers at http://www.kodak.com/go/aio.

You should suggest that Kodak consider providing drivers for Linux. ;-)

You can even find volunteers to help write drivers if you don't have the resources to do it.

As of right this minute, HP gets my printer business (since HP offers very good printer drivers and tools for Linux). I don't even consider another brand.

But, if other companies like Kodak were more Linux friendly, I'd consider them, and I'm sure a lot of corporate and home Linux users would welcome more printer choices.
