Wireless all-in-one inkjet printers are all the rage these days, and from a quick glance at the specs, you’d be led to believe that they’re mostly the same. The reality is, all wireless printers are not created equal, so we rounded up six Mac-compatible units (each from a different manufacturer) to find out which one is worth your time and money.
On the surface, Kodak’s new ESP 7250 All-in-One Printer seems much like any other device in its class. It prints, it scans, it copies. On closer inspection, however, the 7250 stands out thanks to some notable features and even a plan to save you some green with every print job. And we’re not talking ink colors--we’re talking money.
If you flipped over the Flip pocket-size video cameras, there’s a new
contender worth your attention. Kodak’s Zi8 replaces the Zi6, bringing
full HD 1080p capabilities to a small, well-designed package that fits
in your pocket but does more than its competition.
Like many of its features, photos taken with the 10-megapixel Kodak Z1085 IS look good initially but lose their luster on closer inspection. Most images are stippled with visual noise, and background details often jumble together. An optical image stabilizer keeps many handheld shots steady, and a manual mode even lets you set the aperture and shutter speed. HD-video mode captures high-resolution video, but muddy quality looks worse than footage at a low resolution. We can’t get too excited about the Z1085, but it does manage to cover the basics.
