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.
Yes it's cheap, but the ink isn't! Read on to hear about the rip off:

Summary: Honestly, this printer is a decent machine for the price. For the price it prints and scans OK quality stuff. But that's where the good deal stops. Besides the touch screen system being pretty slow, here's why you should avoid this printer: It falsely depletes your ink levels. I do a lot of printing with black only ink. But apparently, that lowers the levels of the color ink drastically!
Summary: I've bought it a year ago. After 1 month and approximately 40-50 pages printed all black ink gone. All the color inks were close to minimum. To replace the whole set, you have to pay 70-80% of the printer cost. If you don't print for a while, your printing head is getting jams, so you have to start cleaning printing head procedure, that eats a lot of ink:).
Summary: Bought S605 because it had some good reviews. Features seemed nice and setup was easy. My biggest problem, and absolutely not acceptable, is their numerous restrictions on ink usage. It won't accept any third party inks, their inks that originally came with the printer ran out fast, and I had to clean the head several times each time wasting a lot of ink.
Summary: I purchased this printer at local office supply store following very good reviews on CNET. It worked very well for a number of months, used moderately for my wife's home based business. Then about a month ago, a page printed completely in light blue and the screen indicated "Print head error." I followed all of the instructions to clean the print head, but nothing helped.
Summary: I have had this printer for 5 months and it is nothing but trouble. Always losing connection with the network. Lexmark is sending out replacement print heads because the one that came with certain serial numbers are faulty. I registered the printer and did not receive notice from Lexmark. When it works it drinks the ink. Do not be fooled and think you can use the less expensive ink in this printer.
Summary: I've owned this printer for a year now, and hate it so much that I want to share my frustration with you would-be buyers out there. My desired printer location is a good distance from my computer, and I was attracted to the wireless feature. I was sold on it in the store since the Lexmark Rep happened to be in the aisle at the time and she showed me all the great benefits of it, and even convinced me that it was one of the best on the market for cost of ink.
Summary: I bought this printer about a month ago. Only 3 days after I began using the printer, it came up with "printhead error" and several other error messages. After severally dismally long trouble shooting conversations with Lexmark they finally gave me a NEW printer. It has been a week since I received my new printer and it is now showing up with the SAME error messages as the old printer.
Summary: Please save yourself a hassle and a waste of money. This is the ABSOLUTE worst printer I've ever owned. WIthin 5 months it said it had paper jams that were non-existant, won't print black and white when it is low on a color cartridge (very frustrating), eats Ink like there's no tomorrow, and has frequent wireless communication errors. Very disappointed with this printer!
