DO NOT BUY!

Summary: Very slow startup time. Wastes a LOT OF INK on it's "cleaning" cycles or whatever the heck it is doing with all the noise. Worst thing (so far anyway) is that if you run out of a color ink cartridge YOU CANNOT PRINT AT ALL EVEN JUST PURE BLACK TEXT!!!!!!!
I'm very disappointed with Lexmark and the quality of their current printers

Summary: I got this printer after my 900 series started acting up and Lexmark tech support was unable to fix it. The 4000, only because you are unable to print in black when any color is low should decide you not to get it.
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.
Summary: Despite the extremely high rating of this printer in the 2012 Consumer Reports Buyers Guide, it is clearly NOT a best-buy. I spent 3 days trying to get this printer working properly as advertised. I could never get the wifi working - via Mac or PC USB (as required).
Summary: Even when printing in black and white the printer uses color ink cartridges. They are VERY expensive and if you don't replace them the printer will refuse to print. I called Lexmark and their response was "that's just how the printer was designed." No wonder I got such a good deal on the printer.
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.
Summary: This printer goes through ink unbelievably fast. I print perhaps 2 pages per month that have any color at all on them, yet I need to replace all the color cartridges every other month. The black cartridge says it prints 600 pages, but barely prints 100 pages text (invoices) before it runs out.
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.
