Deals: Kodak Printer Dock $40 Off Share This on LinkedIn   Share This on Google   Tweet This   Forward This

14 July 2017

Among Amazon's Deals of the Day is a $40 discount on the new Kodak Photo Printer Dock, a dye-sub 4x6-inch photo printer that can also charge your mobile device. The printer, whose list price is $139.99, can be purchased for $99.99 today only.

Kodak announced its new printer in June and, while we're on the review unit list, we haven't yet seen it.

But we are intrigued to find a home dye sub printer hit the market again. The first we owned was the Fargo FotoFUN! (circa 1995), which also printed 4x6 prints. Kodak previously sold an EasyShare Printer Dock that mated to its digicams to make 4x6 dye sub prints. And Canon's SELPHY printers, which we've reviewed, are also dye subs that can bang out 4x6 prints (under battery power even).

The beauty of a dye sub printer is no messy ink cartridges. You install a wide ribbon impregnated with dyes with every pack of paper ($20 for 40 prints on the new Kodak dock) and forget about clogged heads and wet media. It's a perfect solution for the infrequent printer.

The downsides are print fading (even with a protective clear coat and display under glass) after about five years and achieving true neutrals in black-and-white printing. But that isn't much of a concern if you just want x6 snapshots.

So we're looking forward to kicking the tires of a review unit. Meanwhile, for more information see the news release below.
