I received the Kodak EasyShare 5300 printer as a present in November and I love it. I asked for it so I would have a quick way to print out pictures when my new baby arrived in December. I have printed dozens of pictures in color and black and white and still have ink to print more. In antiipation of running out of ink I already purchased a refill cartridge along with extra photo paper and was very pleased with the low cost of both. The photos are of good quality, however, not professional quality so if you want a professional photo printer this one probably isn't for you.
I've also used the EasyShare to scan old photos onto my computer and then used the wonderful photo editing software to add special effects such as spotlighting, turning color photos black and white, and I've even turned a picture into a coloring page which was especially fun. I've recently used the software to edit some pictures of my baby and then had them printed at a local store so I could get slightly higher quality large prints and the technichian thought they had been professionally done!
Overall I am very happy with the pictures for the price and I have had no technical difficulties. I highly recommend this printer.
