Excerpt: I would not recommend this product. I have had many problems with it in a year. Paper jams for no apparent reason. Printing smudges. Calibration doesn't work properly. Ink levels improperly reported. The scan function does work well but otherwise very disappointed in this product.
Excerpt: do not buy a lexmark printer because the thing will definitely break on you. i wish i would have never bought this stupid product and it has broken on me within the first few months of owning this product. do not be stupid and buy this because you will regret the decision later.
Summary: The printer is not what I expected its very slow to print. Also the description said it came with ink and that was not the case. The ink is expensive and doesn't last long. I'm not to happy with it at all. For the price I guess you get what you pay for at 80.00$. GOODLUCK people this is not a good printer in my opinion.Looking for a replacement as we speak.
Summary: Bought it for < $30+tax. Installing the software is awful. The printer driver does not work with a simple installation process although the scanner driver does. I downloaded the "latest" version, it did not fix the problem but then the scanner user interface completely disappeared. After install/uninstall/reboot > 10 times with a specific sequence, and including manually editing registry a few times, finally, both the printer and scanner drivers are fully operational,...
Windows Vista driver difficult to find and install

Summary: This came free with a new laptop loaded with Vista Premium, so I figured it wouldn't be too difficult to get it to work with Vista. I was wrong. After installing the software on the included CD, the PC failed to even recognize the printer. I then went to Lexmark's website and after hunting around, found a Vista driver.
Summary: I have the x1240, an earlier version of this product. The printer works ok... but i am having alot of trouble getting the scanner to work on a Windows 2000 PC. No scanning software on the cd that I can find. The help file references a program that wasnt installed and i can't find it by exploring the CD either. Maybe its defective but Lexmark support is notoriously tough to deal with.
Excerpt: Os voy a contar mi experiencia con este impresora porque, contento me tiene... sólo comentar que actualmente no imprime, se han secado los cartuchos al parecer y me estoy planteando comprar otra. Lo primero es decir que compré esta impresora porque por 35 euros tenía impresora y escaner y a mí, que no imprimo demasiado, me pareció una buena opción. Después de 1 año de uso, me estoy planteando cambiarla porque al final me está saliendo muy cara.
Excerpt: Hola os voy a hablar de esta impresora multifunción que me compré, porque fue la mas barata que encontré, pero de cuya compra me arrepiento bastante. Hablando del aparato, tiene un diseño bastante bonito exteriormente, en un blanco brillante con algunos elementos en gris. La bandeja de papel está en la parte superior, y es bastante incómoda, ya que ocupa mucho y los papeles se doblan con mucha facilidad.
Pros: Escáner, impresión
Cons: bandeja de papel, cartuchos pequeños, se seca
