Summary: If you are looking for a printer with good length of time on the cartridges, this is one of then. All cartridges for Lexmark are expensive, but it's one of the easiest refill cartridges. Usually I run on economy ink and have several years with the original cartridges, specially the black ink doing a refill. The paper jam is typical on similar printer like this one, after heavy use but this is a good printer.
The value of this printer is worth more than its price!

Summary: I've owned a Lexmark 3200 for almost 2 1/2 years now and all I can say is that this printer is great! The 1200x1200 resolution is astounding! All black text when set to 600dpi is comparable to that of Laser printers while color and photo prints are very detailed. The only problem I have with this printer is that it is slightly noisy and the print times are not as fast as other inkjet printers.
Summary: I have had no problems with this printer, it has worked flawlessly for two years. It is a great value and is attractive as well. Requires no warm up time, unlike our laser printer and the color printing is nearly as good as printed photographs. Ink cartridges can be easlily refilled multiple times to greatly reduce the cost of printing.
Summary: I was surprised to see so many high ratings for this dreadful printer. It was relatively inexpensive, but you get what you pay for. The cartridges for it cost around thirty dollars and then magically dry up in a couple of months, with the printer task bar being completely inaccurate in telling you when they will dry up. The printer itself has a tendency to jam at inopportune times.
Summary: i have had this printer for 4yrs and it has finally died. i had the same problems as another review --- always jamming, taking a pad of paper and not one at a time, the ink cartridges went fast and are expensive to replace,and right now it has a chainsaw sound to it. and for the cost of the printer it isn't worth fixing and getting new ink.its done and now i must move on........
Summary: I received a $35 rebate so the cost was a bonus. It can handle plenty of home or small business uses. While a little slow the print quality is excellent. It goes through ink pretty quickly but don't all printers? The Lexmark technical support has been excellent. Nothing has been wrong with the printer it is just my lack of experience.A review in PC World ranked it 8th among budget printers citing noise as a problem. It has not been a problem for me.
Pros: Great technical support, excellent print quality, adaptability and plenty of user options
Cons: It is slow when you are in a hurry or printing out many pages
Summary: I love this printer. I bought it originally because I'd heard good things about the brand and it had a rebate, and I'm glad I bought it! Great quality and the cartridges last for a good length of time. They are kind of expensive, but most printer cartridges are. I am very happy with the quality when I print both in b&w and color. It makes a little noise at the beginning of a print, but other than that is quiet and fast.
Summary: This is one of the best printers that I have used with a low price. The printing quality is sharp and the speed is very fast. I would recommend the Lexmark 3200 to anyone in the market for a quality inkjet printer.
Summary: I bought the lexmark 3200 to replace my 2050. I really loved the 2050 and the software that came with it. I don't like the 3200 as much. I think it is a bit loud and slow. The quality of the printing is very good but it doesn't include a software package. Good print quality for the price. A nice gift for a teen with his own computer or a first printer purchase. The ink is very expensive but I have checked ink prices for other printers and they are all over priced.
