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.
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.
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.
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.
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: 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.

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.

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.
