A new article has pitted Kodak against Hewlett Packard (HP) to see which firm can offer the best use of printer ink.

The Miami Herald spoke to a number of students and got them to test the manufacturer's respective ESP 7 and Photosmart C6380 AiO devices.

It was noted both have cheap ink cartridges as the print head is built into the machine itself - making replacements a more cost-effective purchase.

The two were found to offer memory card and USB 2.0 support, with an integrated LCD display.

However, 16 surveys were collated and 13 of the respondents preferred the HP model for photo quality. Nine of the students said this device was also faster and ten chose the unit as the one they liked best overall.

One of the participants told the publication: "The Kodak printer, in just a short time, had a dirty head and left lines, while the HP stayed true to the image and had constant good quality."

The HP Photosmart C6380 retails for around £180.
