What's the status of those cheap-ink printers that Kodak

sales service is also excellent. I have had one now for over two years
and have only had one problem (a defective print head that was replaced
free of charge without quibble).

going wrong so I am delighted with the quality of the Kodak.

"Perhaps worse for Kodak, it's the first company to show a percentage of
products needing repairs higher than Xerox does. We've never exactly been
able to figure out why for years running Xerox has had double-digit numbers
in this category. Last year it was at 18 percent (and Kodak was at 14
percent). However, this year Xerox's percentage needing repair only went up
to 22; Kodak more than doubled to 31 percent. That's almost one in three
Kodak printers needing a fix; a big problem for a company that hasn't been
in the printer business very long. On the other end of the repair spectrum,
if you want products that don't need many repairs, go with Samsung or
