LONDON, September 21, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Eastman Kodak Company is proud to have recently won a prestigious accolade for its inkjet printing. Channel 5's The Gadget Show has selected the KODAK ESP 3250 as the Number One colour printer on the market today. Recognition from such a popular consumer advice programme is proof of Kodak's ongoing commitment to provide consumers high-quality, inkjet printing with high-quality, affordable ink.

Since its market launch in 2007, Kodak has provided premium-quality ink at low-cost to consumers who are fed up with overpaying for ink refills. The Gadget Show specifically highlighted not only the high quality prints produced by the KODAK ESP 3250, but commented that it was ecstatic about the costs per print which were less than half the price of the nearest rival.

The KODAK 3250 can print Kodak lab-quality prints in as little as 29 seconds. Crisp, sharp documents are printed fast - up to 30 pages per minute in black/white, 29 pages per minute in colour. [1]

Kodak's AiO printers use Kodak's innovative, low cost ink system that uses proprietary, premium pigment-based inks to produce documents and Kodak Lab-Quality Photos [2] that last a lifetime. [3] In addition, Kodak has made printing simple and more cost-effective - without compromising on quality. Kodak is proud to provide consumers premium quality printing options at affordable prices that are recognized by consumer product experts such as The Gadget Show as best buys.

We are delighted to have received such great praise from The Gadget Show, commented Bob Ohlweiler, Director and VP, Consumer Inkjet, Europe, Africa, Middle East. Coming in as a new inkjet player it is an honor to already be receiving industry recognition for our high-quality ink, affordable prices, and premium quality printing. We are extremely pleased that the KODAK 3250 has been so well received and acknowledged as the UK's number one printer.

Kodak entered the inkjet market with a commitment to save consumers money if they switched to Kodak inkjet printers. This commitment remains and independent tests confirm that Kodak customers who print as few as four pages per day will save on their overall printing costs. With Kodak inkjet printers, quality is not compromised by the savings as this recent accolade from The Gadget Show confirms. [4]
