Kodak added a new lineup of all-in-one inkjets to its portfolio with the HERO All-in-One series.
The HERO AIOs allow users to access Google Cloud Print and Kodak Email Print for easy prints out from any location. But the good news for current Kodak customers is you don’t have to go out and purchase a new printer if you want to access these same features. Previous Kodak all-in-ones (with WI-FI connectivity) will be able to use Google Cloud Print and Kodak Email print as well.
The new HERO AIO lineup consists of four “home” printers – the HERO 3.1, HERO 5.1, HERO 7.1 and HERO 9.1 – as well as one “office” printer, the Office HERO 6.1.
The HERO 3.1 is the entry level model at the suggested retail price of $99.99 with scan, copy and print functionality as well as 2.4 inch color display, print speeds up to 6.8 ipm in black and 4.1 ipm in color, optimized print resolution up to 9600 dpi, 100-sheet rear fed tray, built-in card reader, wireless connectivity and a two ink system.
For $30 more, the 3-in-1 HERO 5.1 also offers scan, copy and print functionality along with the other features mentioned above but adds in automatic duplexing, faster print speeds (8 ipm in black and 6 ipm in color), 100-sheet paper cassette, front side USB/PictBridge port and Kodak’s Smart Sense paper feeding technology.
The HERO 7.1 offers a larger 3.5-inch touchscreen display, print speeds up to 8.5 ipm in black and 5.5 ipm in color, duplex printing, separate 40-sheet photo tray with the 100-sheet paper cassette and wireless connectivity for the suggested retail price of $179.99.
The flagship HERO 9.1 is the only “home” printer to offer fax functionality as well as print, scan and copy. It also features a 4.3-inch touchscreen display, 30-page ADF, duplex printing, 100-sheet paper tray with 40-sheet photo tray, print speeds up to 8.5 ipm in black and 5.5 ipm in color and wireless connectivity for the suggested retail price of $249.99.
