Excerpt: I am reviewing the Lexmark Pro205 because I want others to be aware of the pros and cons of this printer. I have never purchased a Lexmark before and was talked into it by the salesperson who said it was a great printer and one of the few that comes with a 5 year warranty. I normally purchase HP printers. I wanted a printer that my kids could use wirelessly also. I also liked that it scans, and can send and receive faxes.
Excerpt: I got this printer several months ago for free with a purchase of a computer. I see now why they were giving it out for free. This is by far the worst printer i have ever used. Although it touts being able to scan, fax, copy and all sorts of other things, it simply does not stand out. This printer tends to not work a lot of time and paper gets easily jammed in the printer when doing a job.
Printer indicates problems OFTEN when there is none=added steps to print.

Summary: I am very disappointed with this printer. Sometimes it prints multiple copies when only programmed for one. It almost always tells me there is a paper jam when there is none. It also often tells me there is an issue with the magenta cartridge--again when there is none. Several times it has told me it cannot communicate with my computer when there should be no problem and I must go through all the steps it tells me in order to begin printing.
Summary: Unreliable...everytime I try to print I get an error, "Problem with the Printhead" Lexmark support has had me reset print heads and restore factory settings...now they are sending me a new printhead.
