Summary: Recently picked this printer up used. I plan on using it for coupons. It was very easy to setup; essentially all that is required is power and a data cable...and even that can be negated via the wireless connectivity. Setting the printer up for networking was as simple as navigating to settings, scanning for a network, and then entering my wifi password to connect.

Pros: Makes a good book shelf for junk mail and coffee cups.
Cons: Had this thing for 2 years and battle it everyday. Just trying to use up the ink I have. Constantly reboot my computer to get it printing, no wireless connection, printer head replaced and multiple ink errors.
Summary: Great product! I love the double sided printing feature/option and its pretty quick, not lightening quick but not too bad really. Its moderately quiet and really functional. I am starting my own small health and wellness coaching business and it has really been of help not to go running to Kinko's or a printing place!
Summary: I bought this product about a year ago. It has not worked properly since the day I bought it. Some days it prints perfectly and other days it won't print at all. Then almost exactly one year after I bought it, it stopped working all together and I ended up having to buy a new printer. I do not suggest this product to anyone.
Pros: Bought cheap at $25.00 new just a little over a year ago
Cons: print head failures are notorious. C.S. did replace it but it's bad again. Uses way too much ink and replacements are costlier than most. Paper jams alot and loses connection often. It's more of a hassle and too much money to maintain.

Pros: No pros in my opinion. Takes forever to warm up and get ready to print. Print speed isn't too bad but it will sit there for several minutes sometimes "preparing to print". Horrible user interface, constantly updating drivers,constant paper jams.
Cons: Lexmark updates have made it impossible to use non-OEM ink. Constant paper jams, buggy operation and a real disappointment overall considering I bought it based on CNET's glowing review.
Cons: Pricey cartridges do not last long in comparison to others. Several error messages. Proprietary chip prevents cartridge refills. Printer blocks printing even if ink is just low. Too sensitive print head is expensive to replace. No flat fold
