Kodak's new Inkjets -- "Good enough" per the WSJ

This morning's Wall Street Journal, in its Personal Technology column, features a review of the Eastman Kodak Company's Easyshare 5300 inkjet all-in-one printer. Walter Mossberg compares the product against an HP (NYSE HPQ) Photosmart C6180 and finds both products have their strengths along with their idiosyncrasies. This review must have triggered a huge collective sigh of relief among Kodak executives and marketing types, as following their splashy introduction in February, a string of reviews (mostly from pickier photo-only sources) have been lukewarm at best on its new printers. Walt brings his more "everyman" approach to product reviews and comes away reasonably impressed. The battle goes on!

Note -- 4/26 10am MDT -- I've upgraded this post with a direct link to Walt's review and also a link to the brand new site, All Things D.
(Thanks Christine of Dow Jones for the heads up!)
