Review of Lexmark Interact S605 All in One Inkjet Printer
11 March 2010
Conclusion: The Lexmark S605 is a nice printer basically, the quality of the prints is excellent, the pictures are beautiful and the regular printing is good as well. The extraneous stuff like the ability to connect to the internet and read feeds etc is a nice addition, it’s a novelty idea, but personally I think it’s not needed. I would never be reading the news on my printer, I want a printer that prints and works when it should.
Pros: Beautiful prints and photos, Fast printing, Easy setup
Cons: Problems with the printer working, Touch screen not very sensitive, Rather loud
Summary: The print quality and good solid print, scan, and copy functionality make this a good All-in-One. The wireless networking was easy to set up, but Lexmark obviously has some problems with their interconnectivity. While adding features and Internet connectivity is certainly admirable, the average consumer doesn’t want to spend hours on the phone with tech support to set up a new printer and certainly doesn’t want to use a printer that throws up errors every time it prints.
Excerpt: Lexmark’s Interact S605 got off to a slightly rocky start, as the driver software included with the printer didn’t work with OS X 10.6 on our Mac, leaving us to search Lexmark’s website for a new version of the software. The printed QuickStart guide didn’t get us started all that quickly either, and we had to delve into the bulky reference manual before we could even figure out how to install the ink cartridges.
Easy to use once you get started, excellent text quality for office documents, double-sided printing
