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. You can't print black and white if the color cartridges are empty. If you don't keep a barrel of ink on tap, you won't be able to keep up.
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. While I am pleased with the mechanical reliability of the printer, it is extremely expensive to run due to ink costs. I will be junking it as soon as the next cartridges run out.
Summary: How can one truly rate an item such as this Lexmark inkjet printer the Lexmark has abandoned and went to only laser printers? Anyway in the first two weeks this print has performed satisfactorily. Time will tell how we'll it holds up and how expensive ink cartridges are.
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. These copiers use color ink when printing in black and gray scale. If you want to print somthing fast forget about it! It takes 3 to 8 minutes if the unit is not warmed up.
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. Wont be buying anything from Lexmark again.
Summary: I've had nothing but trouble with this unit. After operating for a few days, the yellow cartridge went empty. After replacing it, I set up for printing black and white only for awhile. Now I can't print color because the new yellow cartridge isn't delivering ink. Communication with Lexmark is hopeless.
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). Giving up on wireless, I focused on wired networking which also had major problems; with firewalls completely disabled even though they were configured properly, the scanning software would never work with...
Summary: Das Gerät verliert im Ruhemodus seine LAN-Verbindung, sodass es neugestartet werden muss, natürlich mit ausgiebiger Tintenintensiver Reinigung. Die Patronen kosten soviel wie der Drucker, und halten nicht annähernd die angegebenen Seitenzahlen! Das Gerät braucht bis zum Ausdruck der ersten Seite nahezu 3 Minuten um warmzulaufen. Mein erster und zugleich letzter Lexmark. Bin ehrlich froh, wenn ich das Teil verschrotten darf, ich warte nur noch, dass die Tinte leer ist.
