From HP paper mess to Lexmark paper reliability
8 March 2014
Summary: I was fed up with the way HP (3 in 1 copiers) "don't feed" paper. HP "service?" had no solution for paper feeding mess. I eventually gave up on three of HP printers. Obviously I'm a slow learner. I later tried a small Lexmark S420 printer, I has been doing duplex printing for over a year without a mis-feed or paper jam. I recently replaced the HP junk with the Lexmark pro 5500 and it is living up to my expectations of reliable paper handling. No other problems either.
Summary: Originally had a Lexmark Pinnacle Pro 901. Worked fine initially, but over the years it started hanging up more frequently on the start of a print job. On first power up had a 900 error about ink back pressure, cycled power and another 900 error. Pulled out ink cartridges and tried again getting another error but ran longer. Cycled power and this time it succeeded. The test page didn't have yellow on it.
Summary: The Pro 5500 arrived as promised and is performing as expected. I used the previous Lexmark quite heavily and was pleased about the less cost per printed page. I used the Return Cartridge program, which further lessened the cost of printing.
Summary: 10/21/13. Addition: we have 3 of these printers now. 30 years of using computers in the office and this is the most useful printer I have ever bought. It is as fast as a home grade laser printer (except for first page out, maybe), it is the easiest to refill (no holes to drill!), it is quiet, it can take a 2nd tray (and if the paper in the other tray is of a different size you don't even need to select the tray, the printer will know from which tray to take the paper.
Summary: Best printer for the money I have had to date. It was easy to set up and the instructions easy to follow. I've only used the printing functions so far and have been impressed with the speed compared to other printers I have owned. It was packaged well with no damage at delivery. I use it only for home, but printed out all my financial reports to track my accounts. It was fast and easy.
Summary: I love this printer, and my wife does, too. First, I was impressed by the quality of the machine: the fit and finish says "this printer was thoughtfully made." I found the set-up to be relatively easy, although other reviewers have disagreed. The software gives step-by-step instructions; I had to uninstall and reinstall once, which I don't consider to be heart-breaking.
Summary: Great color. Get's the job done. Has 3 different color cartridges and black. I only have to stock up on the colors used most for my printing style. Better quality print and toner is priced more reasonably than anh HP Inkjet I've owned.
