Excerpt: This printer is affordable and prints, scans and copies fine, but there is one very irritating feature about this printer that makes me give it an "average" rating. Despite the fact that each ink cartridge is seperate (and also surprisingly affordable for printer ink), if one ink cartridge runs out the entire printer WILL NOT print. So, if the yellow ink runs out, you can not just opt to print in black until you get a new cartridge. Nope. No printing for you!
Summary: We purchased the Interpret 405S in May 2010 for $59.99, which was a discounted price since we were buying a new computer. The main reason we decided to go for it was the ink cartridges for our old HP printer were $20 more than buying a new printer when you had to replace both of them. However we haven't really found the value in the 405S yet because we've already had to replace the cartridges several times.
Great speedy unit, poor day to day problems fixing solutions

Summary: This has been an amazing purchase for me. As I am not the primary user it's impossible for me to rate ink consumption as others have commented on. Scanning and printing quality and speed are wonderful. It's amazing to get this much quality from this kind of machine. The Wifi on this unit is subpar. An external antenna could have greatly improved the signal quality perhaps but this unit ultimately suffers from too much corner cutting.
Summary: I bought this (not on Amazon) in April 2011 and in rather a hurry. It was only after I bought it that I realised how expensive the inks are with Lexmark machines and that the cartridges that can be used are heavily restricted by the company's software. I do not print a great deal, but this thought always annoyed me and made me feel as though I had been conned. Inks are generally expensive in relation to the printer cost, but Lexmark's prices are just ridiculous.
Summary: I just replaced this pile of rubbish with an HP office jet 6500A plus. All the same features and better done at the same price. The lexmark chews through ink like nobodies business, even the 'XL' ones. The wireless was hit and miss despite all my other gear worked perfectly. Honestly, you will pay a fortune on ink for this, get a better make! Also the software is dodgy (on Mac at least), and I had nothing but problems with it! Much happier with the HP!
Summary: Wenn der Drucker funktioniert, ist er ein ideales Kombigerät für qualitativ gute Drucke, einer flotten Druckgeschwindigkeit und opitmal für das Homeoffice mit Fax und Scanfunktion. Wireles Lan macht es möglich Drucker aus allen Stockwerken des Hause zu verbinden, schönes Konzept das alle glücklich machen würde wenn........................ Wenn nicht die Technik sich hier immer wieder selber einen Streich spielen würde.
Summary: Hatte bevor ich mir diesen Drucker gekauft hatte einen HP DeskJet, dieser streikte plötzlich bei einem Scanvorgang - nichts ging mehr. Also den Lexmark gekauft, war anfangs skeptisch über einen Multifunktionsdrucker um 60€. Doch die WLAN unterstützung hat mich dann doch geritten das Teil zu kaufen. Installation ohne Probleme, Druckergebnis war auch in Ordnung, Verbrauch von Tinte -> kaum gekauft schon leer.
Summary: Ho acquistato questa stampante in offerta mesi fa ad un prezzo ottimo, 59 euro. Il costo delle cartucce era accettabile. Purtroppo non ho trovato cartucce compatibili. Secondo Lexmark con le cartucce si possono stampare fino a 200 pagine. Qui però sono cominciati i dubbi. Non uso il colore in quanto per la mia attività utilizzo solo il nero, ma puntualmente la stampante mi indica scarso inchiostro in una o più cartucce del colore e del nero.
