We have in the past covered many scanners and MFP ranging from Epson, HP, Canon, and Brother. But this is certainly the first time we’ll be reviewing a product from Kodak. The 1150, specifically. They’re not a well-known company, but that doesn’t say anything about their product. So, let’s get started right away with this Kodak i1150 review.
Usage and Performance
While we rarely heard the name Kodak when it comes to scanner or printers, we have to admit in this Kodak i1150 review that their product is quite excellent.
The i1150 is easy to use. It comes with a 50-sheet ADF that makes scanning document very stress-free and painless. It also supports duplex scanning with still incredibly fast scan speeds at around 49ipm.
Adding in to its ease-of-use, the i1150 shows what scanning profile you’re on through its front LCD. Though you’re only limited to nine profiles to create and use.
Kodak i1150 also have this neat little feature they call the ‘transaction mode’ that boosts the scan speed of the first ten pages you inserted. This might seem like a gimmick at a glance because most of the time, this ‘feature’ doesn’t really give a significant difference.
But Kodak i1150’s transaction mode boosts the first ten pages scan speed to 40ppm compared to its usual 25ppm which make the different in speed very much noticeable.
One of the things that this scanner is lacking for this Kodak i1150 review is the installation or set up process. While it is easy to use when it’s already set up, the process of setting it up itself is a bit of a hassle since it doesn’t come with any application programs compared to other scanner in its price range.
They’re most likely expecting you to already have a vertical market package with scanning software already installed to be used with the Kodak i1150. But don’t worry even if you don’t have them because any other Windows program will be able to scan with this i1150 just fine.
It’s just that it’s a bit unfortunate to have it not come with any application programs.
Other than that, though, installing its driver is quite simple just like any other scanners.
To end this Kodak i1150 review, it’s only apt for us to draw the verdict for this neat little scanner.
Overall, the Kodak i1150 is a very capable scanner. It’s not that expensive, it’s easy to use, and it’s got great quality scans with impressive speed. Thanks to these qualities, the Kodak i1150 is ideal for any offices in the world that requires fast scans for the first few documents.
So as long as you don’t have to scan 50 documents at once, the i1150 is definitely a great choice.
