Mitsubishi vs Kodak Price Comparison
Check out the return on your investment by comparing the cost per print over time

 

Although the Mitsubishi is more expensive to purchase, the cost of consumables for 10x8 glossy prints is much cheaper. Depending upon the quantity of 10x8 prints you print, it may be worth paying the extra to recoup the longer term benefits.

Please note however that the Mitsubishi CP3020DE does not have Apple Mac Support, while the CP3020DAE and the Kodak 1400 do.

How many prints would each printer need to print to pay for themselves?
