Guzzles Ink! Consumer Reports Blew It!
Jim S. "Dogs Of War", Amazon
24 February 2015
Summary: Consumer Reports had this as a top rated printer with very low monthly costs. I hardly even use this, yet it guzzles ink like an inkaholic! I'm sick of throwing money away on ink every few months! Like other reviews, this thing won't print in black and white if a color cartridge is low!
Printer will not print when a single ink cartridge is low
Jeff A. Miller, Amazon
26 July 2014
Summary: Printer is awful on ink. We go through maybe one ream of paper a year but have to change ALL the ink cartridges 4-5 times a year. The printer will not print when any of the cartridges are low.
Summary: I was originally very happy with this product. It printed very fast and was somewhat quiet. I wasn't very happy with the quality of photo printing. 1 1/2 years later....I really hate how I cannot print if one of the cartridges is out, even if I just want black and white.
Summary: This thing is simply unusable. The ink that came with it lasted less than 25 sheets. If any cartridge (such as yellow) shows "low" this thing will not even print a black and white copy. It shows a little yellow triangle saying "low" and it's just dead.
Unreliable printer with unfriendly customer service
29 December 2013
Summary: I bought this printer when my prior Lexmark broke down. Appreciated the low cost per page printing cost. But, this was the worst. I really needed a working printer ... was in a time crunch. Paid extra extra for expedited shipping.
Summary: Have to keep calling Lexmark to help get printer reconnected (wired) to computer. Lexmark customer service very helpful, but equipment is really sub-par. I will be going back to hp soon. Consumer Reports rated this Lexmark as #1. I disagree.
Summary: Purchased this printer earlier in the summer of 2013. This thing sucks down ink at an incredible rate and the cartridges are not refillable and very expensive. I've replaced the color cartridges twice and the black cartridge 3 times in 5 months at $64.99 for 3 color and $36.99 for 1 black.
Summary: Consumer Report had this listed as cheapest to operate so I bought 2. 6 months later after people complained that ink ran out fast, and it does, they retested the copier over a long period of time and found out they use excessive amount of ink cleaning the cartriages.
