Summary: I bought this to replace my old X2480 printer after our neighbor's son destroyed it (to its credit, it mostly survived the fall- just couldn't scan anymore). I had my old one for 3 years and loved it. It works great for scanning, copying, and printing. The only issue I had with the old one (which surprisingly is not an issue with the new one) is that I could not get it to scan using the button on the printer.
Summary: It doesn't print well at all. The color is very poor quality, and the picture always turns out light in color. It does not print a true black color. It only uses one ink cartridge(color). It is a major ink hog! This is use it and throw it away printer.
Summary: I love the compact size of this printer! I needed a printer because I didn't have one, but I didn't need a huge printer because I don't have a lot of room for one. This all in one (printer, copier, scanner, photo printer) is absolutely the perfect printer for me! It doesn't take up much space and it does a wonderful job with everything I've tried so far. I would definitely recommend this printer to my family, friends, or anyone else who asks!
Summary: i really like this little printer. i needed a small scale workhorse that didnt neeed a lot of care but could be ready to churn it out if that is what i needed. i don't think you could find a better priced one. the setup and operation was and is easy and self explanatory. and the software didnt take up tons of space with things i didnt need. one drawback was that there is only a single cartridge and they say i can only get it thru circuit city.

Excerpt: "I bought two Lexmark X2480s about two years ago, one for me and one for my Dad. We have both been using them since then and they work just as well now as the day we bought them. The printer is what's known as a three in one meaning that it prints, scans and copies. The copy feature is particularly good because you can do copies just by switching the Lexmark on but without having to switch your computer on as well. To do a copy you just place the ...
Pros: Its a 3 in 1 so ideal for home or small office usage .
Cons: Doesn't have as many "bells and whistles" as expensive printers .
Excerpt: "I bought this printer second-hand about a year ago, and I must admit it's been a lifesaver. It's main function was to print out my coursework for university, including two 10,000 word essays. I thought this might put a strain on it, but it managed it effortlessly. I've never really had any problems with and considering it's approx. 3 years old now I consider it a bargain. It was quite easy to set-up. the set up CD didn't take long and it ...
