Be warned on ink usage and cartridges

vettekid95 "vettekid95", Amazon
28 August 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this printer the other day to replace my Lexmark X74. The X74 printer still works perfectly (in WinXP), but will not work with the new Windows 7 OS. There is no new driver available for it. Lexmark has determined that the printer is too old and they will not develop a new printer driver for it. So, I was basically forced to upgrade my printer. I really liked my old Lexmark so I decided to purchase another one. I did some research and settled on the S605.

Printing With Style

Kristoph2..., Ciao
24 January 2012
  • Excerpt: With work now I need a few printers and this is due to my company requesting me to use a Lexmark as they believe they are more user friendly. Out scouting around this Lexmark Interact S605 was on a decent offer and it appealed to me as it offered everything I would need. The printer itself is stylish and that is easy to tell from the colour and how it is designed. On the front of the printer everything is very well lit up.
  • Pros: It prints very quickly
  • Cons: The scanning can seem a bit poor at times

Lexmark s605...what a beast

  • Excerpt: well this printer had an array of tools from easily copying too accessing the internet to share photos and other little gadgets which you can explore. whats more the printer comes with built in WiFi as you can printer from loads of computers at the same time. Sounds good doesnt't it. however, there may be some disadvantages with this printer because well if you want a printer which prints amazing images of past holidays well this is the one for you.
  • Pros: many tools and fantastic printing .  wifi capable and access internet on the printer also .
  • Cons: ink short lasting and costly

Good all round package but drinks ink

D. Wood, Amazon
20 January 2011
  • Summary: It all works well with an intuitive user face. The only draw back is the ink consumption. Unlike other reviewers I thought it guzzled the stuff and the replacements are not cheap. If you set it on draught it reverts to automatic each time you re- use the printer so if you forget you are getting high applications of ink lavished on your paper. There may be a way of getting around this but that would mean reading the instructions.

Not so good

pommie, Amazon
17 December 2010
  • Summary: I bought this product because it ticked all the boxes I was looking for in an All in one printer. no doubt about the print and scan quality it's very good, I'm not too happy about the paper pick up though, 4 times out of 5 when I try to print I get a paper jam or out of paper, using C6 envelopes is pretty much impossible, it just will not pick up the envelope to feed it through.

Fantastic but NOT WINDOWS 7 COMPATIBLE

consumer101, Amazon
31 July 2010
  • Summary: AVOID IF YOU HAVE WINDOWS 7. I was bought this printer for my birthday and initially was thrilled with it, setting it up seemed to be easy, it is stylish and easy to use, the test page was fantastic quality and fast and the photocopy worked wonderfully- it too was fast and good quality. HOWEVER I had massive trouble getting my computer to recognise it- either wirelessly or via usb port. It would claim to be set up but when it came to print wouldnt do it.

Very high ink costs

Mr. Barry Rosindale, Amazon
28 May 2010
  • Summary: I bought the printer in March based on a Sunday Times review, which suggested a black ink cost of around 1p. I have now learned to my cost that ink usage is much higher. I have been in discussion with Lexmark and they pointed me to a yield table on their website that indicates 170 pages per 100 size cartridge. That is 8p per sheet. Thankfully I am getting slightly better than this, but this will be the last Lexmark printer I will ever buy.

Plutôt déçu

Alain Sartoris, Amazon
16 August 2014
  • Summary: Je remplace une Samsung noir et blanc par une Lexmark S605 dans le but d'avoir la couleur ,le fax intégré et le WiFI Au bout de quelques semaines je suis déçu en effet si l'imprimante semble de très bonne qualité voici mes remarques: Pas de manuel simple donnant les explications nécessaires au raccordement (tout le monde n'est pas un pro de l'informatique) Je n'ai pas pu raccorder mon Mac Book en Wifi avec la S605 et ne peut donc lancer d'impression depuis le Mac Book...

super Drucker, aber nach 3 Jahren defekt

akasha, Amazon
21 March 2014
  • Summary: Dieser Drucker war der beste, den ich je hatte. Druckbild immer sauber und klar, Farben stimmten, Geschwindigkeit okay, Scanner top, einziges Manko: nach dem ersten Ausklappen des Bedienfeldes lässt sich dies nie wieder platzsparend einklappen.... Nach drei Jahren wurde mein Drucker "inkontinent", gelegentlich ist soviel (Original-)Tinte ausgelaufen, dass die Farbe über das zu bedruckende Blatt Papier hinaus in den Drucker lief.
