It was great until....(but technical support has been good)

Summary: We ordered the printer on 11/10/2010 from Amazon & it arrived within a few days. Wireless setup was easy and print quality was great. On December 3 the printer gave an error message saying there was a problem with the printhead.
Summary: I used it wireles for the first couple of weeks then got a router. Found I had lost my instal disc but found the drivers online and setup was then automatic. My laptop was set up using online drivers and works fine also. The new XL cartridges are lasting longer than expected.
Pros: Set up is easy and fast. USB cable included in package. Good copy quality, good speed, great scan resolution on documents, pretty good resolution on photo scan. Two sided copies has already saved me money on paper as I print a lot of work at home.
Cons: If I have not printed for a couple of days, I have to unplug power cord for a few seconds it to be recognized by computer again. Was disappointed that the first ink cartridges ran out so fast. I was told that they were regular cartriges and not starter cartridges but clearly that was not the case.
Summary: Out of the box mine wouldn't connect to wifi. Worked with online tech who remotely worked on the system for about 4 hours and deemed the unit defective. I was shipped a new (RMA) unit from Lexmark within 2 days with a return shipping label. Second unit has worked like a dream.
Pros: Wifi is great. Very quick printing and scanning. Ability to save directly to a flash drive. User friendly touch screen interface. Customer tech support available via chat very helpful and knowledgeable.
Summary: The 105XL cartridge can be modified to work with the S605. The 100, 100XL and 105XL are all the SAME physical cartridge, just with different size ink fills. The 105XL physically fits into the S605 with no modification. When installed, the printer says "unsupported ink cartridge.
Summary: Setting up the wireless was kind of a pain. I ended up calling technical support who (although hard to understand) were able to help me determine the reason it wasn't working was because my wireless router was set to b/g/n and I had to disable n to get it to work.
Pros: Great image quality, looks great, wireless, large capacitive lcd screen, prints on both sides of paper, sd slot
Cons: goes through ink kind of fast, however I'm still using the cartridges that came with it so I'm sure they have less ink to start with. LCD screen swings out and gets locked in that position and doesn't go back, found if you reach under the screen you can press in a certain area to have to able to ...
Summary: In writing this, I am amazed that the price jumped to $177, i just bought it from Newegg for $109, but this is a very intuitive and easy printer overall, prints great, fast, and you can control your printing from the interface or software application. enjoy!
Pros: This is a wonderful printer. From the ease of setup to printing. You install the CD first, the software downloads the most current drivers and firmware. Once you go through the very intuitive setup wizard, then after the printer is connected, the driver and firmware will automatically be updated....
Cons: Owners manuals are so-so. Lexmark could save the trees and eliminate the French copies. Hello... this is America! No LAN connection just USB & WIFI. I am not sure how long the cartridges will last as they are thin, Black cartridge should last you awhile as its bigger than the Magenta, Yellow and ...
It works okay most of the time, but it whizzes through cartridges

Summary: This printer has not been flawless by any means, but the after sales service from Lexmark was far better than I received from HP with my old printer. I would like to give it more stars but the cost to replace cartridges is extremely high and they seem to need replacing fairly frequently despite not...
Good printouts, but a little tempromental. FAULTY PRINTHEAD REPAIRED UNDER WARRANTY

Summary: The joy of this printer is it's so easy to use. The touch screen gives all the information and interaction you need. Scanning quality is very good. Why not 5 stars? It stopped printing 8 months into ownership. Turns out a batch of these printers went out with defective printheads.
Summary: This was an impulse buy, when seen in Sainsbury's Andover, for a clearance price of £39.99 on 25th April 2012. (It was advertised for £79.99, supposedly for half the RRP a few days before !!) I had just bought an i Mac, and this was so cheap, I couldn't resist it!
