Kodak ESP Office 2170

RH Numbers

This is Kodak's offering as a home office all-in-one, so it includes a 25-sheet ADF and full fax functions. It's full-width control panel comes with a rather small, 38mm LCD, no bigger than that in the more budget-end ESP C310. Paper feeds from a single tray at the rear to a pull-out tray at the front and there is no separate photo tray. There's also no front-panel USB, though Kodak does provide a wireless connection. With a maximum print speed of 3.7ppm, this isn't a fast printer, but it makes up for this with very low print costs of 1.6p for black and 4.3p per colour.

Lexmark Genesis S815

RH Numbers

The key feature of this machine, immediately obvious when you look at it, is its near-vertically mounted scanner. It photographs rather than scans, and produces a page image in about three seconds. The LCD screen is set into the large piano-black front cover, but the print engine is the same as in many of Lexmark’s other machines based on its Vizix print engine. It prints well enough and its duplex performance is better than some rivals, though the paper path, from rear to front, makes loading paper a little awkward. Running costs are better than average and it’s fair value - if you shop around.
