Lexmark Prospect Pro205 Great and convenient - when it' working.
9 September 2012
Excerpt: I love being able to have wireless capability with my printer. It is very easy to add computer to the network and you can print documents throughout the house. However, this printer has a lot of print head issues. I'm on my second print head and having problems again - such as the print head is not functioning and you have to check the user's guide. Then it will say that the print head is not compatible with your all in one even though you've been printing with it...
Excerpt: I got this printer on sale for a very good price. Howver, I should have checked to see how much the ink costs. It costs nearly $70 to replace all four of the ink cartridges if you need to replace them all at the same time. The biggest benefit of this printer is the wirless connectivity. I can easily print from anywhere in the house using my laptop or my wife's laptop. It is also convenient if you have a guest or two that would like to be able to print--insead of...
Summary: The sealed package arrived but was missing a power cord and usb connection. The print heads didn't work. After an hour on the phone Lexmark sent a replacement part that worked. The complicated procedure to get a new usb cable a power cord was not worth the trouble and I just bought new ones from FRY's to save the hassle. The wireless worked for a while but then went bad after a few days. I will follow up with Lexmark when I have hours of phone time to spare.
Pros: The printing works well, single-sided and duplex, regular paper and photo paper. The speed is satisfactory. Fully functional scanning and copying.
Cons: Wireless communication is suspect. On many occasions I've had to reboot the printer (cycle power) in order to get it to recognize WiFi requests. My WinXP system communicates with the Pro205 by WiFi; when I request that scans be uploaded directly to the co

When I originally purchased this all in one I was able to use ink purchased from another source at a much reduced cost. Then when I updated my firmware one day that came to an end. Lexmark printers will now only work if you use their ink. And naturally they make money on their ink which is very expensive.
stampante discreta, ma teme decisamente il confronto

Excerpt: Lexmark fa solo stampanti, e partendo da questo presupposto dovrebbe proporre sul mercato prodotti a dir poco perfetti. Le concorrenti (epson esclusa) si dilettano in modo discreto anche in altri campi e sarebbe più comprensibile qualche difetto. I pri ...
Pros: costo non eccessivo per le funzioni che offre
Cons: cartucce non economiche, qualità di stampa non eccellente, mancanza di supporto per tablet
Excerpt: Ho deciso di prendere questa stampante multiuso per la funzionalità fax (a colori) che non tutte hanno e wifi. Ho ancora una HP che mi dura da ben 10 anni ma le cartucce sono sempre state care. Ora con questa nuova macchina costano 45 euro tutte e 4. Dunq ...
Pros: fax a colori, wifi, fronte retro
Cons: segnalazione del computer dal quale si vuole stampare
