The Kodak Easyshare 5500 All-In-One's poky speed and a high price detract from this multifunction printer's useful small-office/home-office and shutterbug features.
The Kodak Easyshare 5500 All-In-One managed a lacklustre 6.2 pages per minute (ppm) printing plain-black text, and a poky 2ppm printing graphics. Text on plain paper looked good: charcoal rather than black, but fairly precise otherwise. Graphics printed on plain paper seemed a tad faded, while on photo paper everything was a little dark. On both papers, images still looked natural.
The Kodak Easyshare 5500 All-In-One is noteworthy for its low-priced ink replacements. There's a separate black for text, plus a colour cartridge with five tanks for cyan, magenta, yellow, photo black, and a clear protective coating.
