Avoid this printer

SNS, Amazon
30 December 2013
  • Summary: When we first got this printer about 2 years ago it was absolutely fine and worked great. Over time it appears to have got worse and worse in regards to simply printing ANYTHING at all. We are now at a point where you can manage to print one document, but when trying to print a second or third the printer will do absolutely nothing. It gives the impression that it is going to react but doesn't.

Worst printer I've ever owned

Caitlin R. Kight, Amazon
14 August 2013
  • Summary: I cannot tell you how much I hate this printer. It has been a hassle from Day 1. It uses atrocious amounts of ink, tells you to replace the cartridges when they're not even empty, has near-constant error messages that prevent you from using all the printer's functions, and, now, claims to have a (nonexistent) printhead issue that cannot be resolved via cleaning and firmware updates. I am never buying a Lexmark again.

Rip off and a waste of space

S Miller "sophie_on_a_stick", Amazon
4 June 2013
  • Summary: THIS WILL NOT DO ANYTHING WITHOUT ALL THE LEXMARK BRANDED CARTRIDGES - not even scan. We were given this as a present and for a while, it was ok. Apart from the fact that you had to reboot it every time you wanted to use it as the wifi wouldn't connect, and took far too long to get it to talk to our laptops. In due course, it started chewing all the paper and not feeding it through. I opened it up to take a look at the head and a spring came flying out.

Don't buy

UwqdUUUU, Amazon

  • Summary: Printer is unreliable, and unless you register online instantly once bought Lexmark will weasel out of replacing it. Support is atrocious, taking 30 minutes to answer on all occasions I've tried.

Do not buy this printer.

OEJ, Amazon
18 December 2012
  • Summary: If I had a hammer, I'd smash this piece of **** to pieces. OK it was a cheap initial purchase (under £40) in June 2011, but that has proved to be a totally false economy. Even if it worked properly - which it doesn't - it would be costly to run as those 4 different cartridges are very unsuitable to the occasional user (like me).

  • Summary: Bought this printer which seemed fine but it broke within a week with the fix being to dispatch back to Lexmark. Not impressed.

Don't buy

  • Summary: This is a dreadful printer - print more than a couple of things on it and it runs out of memory, ask it to print multiple copies and copy 2 onwards doesn't print properly. Honestly a complete waste of money.

Waste of money. Drinks ink and needs constant realignment.

BRP, Amazon
21 December 2011
  • Summary: Enjoy buying loads of ink and spending time aligning the print cartridges ? Do you collect numerous print outs of the printer alignment results ? Then this is the printer for you. I thought I would save money buying the colours separately with this printer, but instead you just spend time and money buying all the colours individually. This printer is a serous money pit. I will certainly not bother with another lexmark after this experience.

Zero stars- Deceptive business practices by lexmark

N. Graham, Amazon
7 December 2011
  • Summary: Will not print (or even scan) without ink (reported- may be some left but not recognised) in all cartridges. Deliberate, won't accept refils or alternative cartridges. Runs out of ink incredibly quickly, even large capacity cartridges. Wifi signal intermittent at best but trivial in comparison.
