Kodak Easyshare 6000 vs HP PhotoSmart 145

Discussion in 'Kodak' started by Larry R Harrison Jr, Dec 21, 2003.

  1. I am considering one of those for casual 4x6 photos. I don't figure an
    inkjet would be appropriate due to the tendency of inkjet photos to fade. I
    want something that is as permanent (or almost, anyway) as regular photos.

    The Kodak comes highly recommended, yet I've also seen that Photosmart for
    sale too. I'm curious as to any opinions persons have of both models, or any
    other models in their price range.

    Make sure you check out the cost of the media for the Kodak. You might be
    shocked.

  3. Yes, it's $25 for a 40 photo kit, which is like 60c a print. I'm aware.

    What would you suggest? One thing--permanence is a big deal to me, so I'm
    thinking I should avoid inkjets. Your advice?

    Sony has a Dye Sub 4x6 printer, and if you buy the 75
    pack, print costs are slightly less than 54 cents (US)
    even if you buy the 75 pack with no discount.

    The price of 4x6 ink jet paper is about .30¢ a sheet. That is .32¢ a
    sheet less than the easyshare print... BUT when you add the cost of
    ink which is anywhere from .30¢ to .45¢ a sheet, the Kodak Printer Dock
    is much better.
    Spill water on a ink jet print, throw it away.. on the Kodak print.. No
    problem.

    Sure it is cheaper to go to Sam's or Costco if you have a membership..
    Oh yeah, I only need to print 4 pictures.. 4x62=$2.48 then add Sam's is
    20 miles away and my SUV get's 17 MPG, so that is 2.25 gal. of gas at
    $1.50 a gal. plus some idiot backs into my car and does $1000 worth of
    damage and my deductalbe is $1000.
    So my 4 pictures end up costing me about $225. each
    Now sure that is going overboard with the car.. but the gas isn't.
    If you have 40 or 50 prints to do, sure it is cheaper, but most people
    want to print a few pictures at a time and the Printer Dock makes that
    easy and affordable.
