the ink jet printers kodak makes/made were/are better than
their competition. rather than pay the nose through the ink
you pay a fair amount for a good printer and get cheap ink.
i see nothing wrong with that, seeing i paid a fair amount for my printer
and i pay 200$/year for the ink. if i had a kodak printer i wouldn't pay even close to that
for my ink ...

its too bad they didn't advertise to the consumer ink sector better ... i only saw
their printer ads while i caught up on robert éponge avec les culottes carrés
