Summary: This printer worked fine to start but when I didn't use it for a few weeks it stopped printing completely. I don't know if the ink dryed up or what, but now it is useless. I also, should have went for the wireless model which as I recall was only $10 more. I wonder if the seller would make me a deal to trade this in on a WORKING WIRELESS PRINTER. VERY DISAPPOINTED AT THIS TIME. A TOTAL LOSS, AND i ONLY PRINTED ABOUT 2 SHEETS TO TEST IT WHEN I FIRST RECEIVED IT.
Summary: I HAVE FOUND MOST OF THE LEXMARK PRODUCTS ARE JUNK---PRICE FOR THERE INK TANKS TO START PRINTERS GULP IT DOWN----PROGRAMING ---ANOTHER PROBLEM--- OVER RATED---- MANY OF THE INK TANKS ARENT MADE ANY MORE FOR PRINTERS MADE BY LEXMARK---NONE BRAND INK TANKS ANOTHER $$ DOWN THE DRAIN ----- LEXMARK PRODUCTS SHOULD BE LOOKED INTO BE FOR JUNKED EDDY KLEIN BOSTON MASS.
Summary: Do not buy this printer, I bought a brand new Gateway and they put this printer "if you can call it one" with my package. It only works with Vista for a few days and they go back and try to use it, you will get a "cannot communicate with computer-printer error" call Lexmark and you will be told to download vista drivers from their site, do that, it still won't work. Now I am trying to clean these programs off my computer and I can't even get that accomplished yet!!
Summary: This thing is garbage. I've owned it for a few months and the ink is gone already. Cartridges are VERY VERY small. Also, Lexmark intentionally makes the cartridges IMPOSSIBLE to re-fill yourself. If you're looking to throw money down the drain, this printer is for you. Terrible. Just terrible. Stay far, far away from this piece of garbage.
Summary: I got this printer with the laptop I purchased. THis one has been pain ever since. I have replaced toner cartridge on it already and I have yet to get a good print job from this printer. Not a good printer.
Summary: This is the second Lexmark printer I've owned and it turned out just like the first one... crappy. Being on sale for a small sum of money, I readily purchased an all-in-one device. It saves space and as my current scanner was a Mustek, the Lexmark would obviously be a step up. WRONG!! The only thing the Lexmark X1270 does decently is save space. Only one USB cable, one outlet plug, and one unit (as a whole) to contend with.
Excerpt: I have two Lexmark printers (including an X1270) and even for someone as computer literate as me, the amount of time I have invested in trying to get my printers to work makes them extremely expensive and they still don't work. Why? Well, part of the software that comes with Lexmark printers is almost like a virus that takes over your Windows PC's print spooler and, if you search the internet for "Lexmark""spooler" you'll see links to this problem.
Excerpt: I bought this about 9 months ago,and for the next 6 months it was OK but not brilliant, recently it would only print in yellow I checked my cartridges and they came up as 75% full, so then I took them out to see if I could find out what the problem was, when I put them back in I got an on screen message 'cartridge missing', with so many niggling problems I decided to give it to a charity shop, maybe someone else will have better luck than me , I have had Lexmark printers...
