Kodak announced the EPS 7250 All-in-One inkjet printer, along with the ESP Office 6150, earlier this year at CES 2010.

The ESP 7250 has a new look and new features but provides the same low cost of ownership as previous models through in-expensive ink, automatic duplexing and reduced energy consumption.

As mentioned in the introduction, the Kodak ESP 7250 is rocking a new design.  Gone is the total black exterior replaced by a silver front panel and a glossy, adjustable control panel.  The trademark yellow accent remains at the front of the scan lid.

Coming in at approximately 18 x 7 x 17 inches, the ESP 7250 is only slightly more compact then the ESP 9 and ESP Office 6150 although it lacks the automatic document feeder offered on both of those models.

Without an ADF to support, Kodak uses the ample space to place a small brand logo and an interesting pattern.  Beneath all of that resides the flatbed scanner with an optical resolution up to 2400 dpi and a maximum scan size of 8.5 x 11.7 inches.  Kodak offers optical character recognition and auto detection for scanning multiple images in at once.

Lift the printer on either side of the scanner to access the inside of the ESP 7250.  Here you’ll find the two Kodak 10 cartridges:  Kodak 10B black ink cartridge and Kodak 10C five-ink color cartridge.  Users can also purchase a high capacity black ink cartridge: the Kodak 10XL.

The adjustable control panel is centered on the front of the ESP 7250 and features a 2.4-inch LCD.  Along with the display, users will find eight quick keys and an easy navigation wheel.

The built-in card reader is found to the right of the control panel.  The Kodak ESP 7250 is compatible with following types of media: SD, SDHC, Compact Flash I and II, MMC, Memory Stick, Memory Stick PRO, xD-Picture Card, PictBridge and USB flash drives.

The Kodak ESP 7250 offers both a 100-sheet paper cassette as well as a 40-sheet dedicated photo tray.  The ESP 7250 prints on a variety of media from 4×6 photo paper to 8.5 x 14 inch legal sized copy paper.

All connections are found on the back of the ESP 7250 including: the power source, USB 2.0 and Ethernet ports.
