Great print quality, packaging, and warranty, but a few problems

Summary: This is one of a few inkjet all-in-one's packaged with XL ink cartridges (official yield rated at 600 pages for color, 510 for black), auto 2-sided printing and document feeder, wi-fi connectivity, and comes with an un-matched 5 year warranty (1 year initial, 4 additional years after registration) for less than $150. You might want to look at the Pro705 which can be similar in price.
Summary: Comments about Lexmark Prospect Pro205: I just received this printer and set it up reasonably easily. It's in my second residence, so I haven't used it much; however, so far I like it much better than my HP printer, which is a piece of junk. The Lexmark is quieter and prints efficiently, without going through a million gyrations after each task. I haven't used the scanner yet, and I'm not sure how much ink it uses. I was just happy to get it working in approx.
Summary: A wireless printer, flat-bed scanner, copier, and fax for under $100 with a 5-year warranty makes the Lexmark Pro205 an excellent budget 4-in-1. I was extremely impressed with everything that you get for the price-- it even comes with full-sized ink cartridges. Another plus is that it will do automatic two-sided printing, which I haven't often seen on lower-priced models.
A quality built printer with great features and price

Summary: Product Features: This Lexmark Color Prospect Pro205 is an all in one (4 in 1) multifunctional printer. For less than $100, you get a wireless device which prints, fax, scan, and copies. It can also be directly attached to the PC via USB. Other features include 2 side printing, 35 page auto document feeder. It also comes with a 5 year warranty. Product Positives: This is a solid printer, well built. It's fast and quite. I love the wireless capabilities.
Summary: I have this printer only for about 10 days now - thats one of the reasons I have rated it at 4 stars as it has not proven itself over a long period yet. Overall I found this to be really good! This is my first Lexmark product and I was a bit skeptical initially. The instalation was a bit rough as its driver clashed with my Logitech webcam's driver. The Lexmark support was friendly and trying to be helpful but they had no clue why the installation was failing.
Summary: Very pleased so far. Probably not the best on the market, bet definately the best for that price. I like the double-sided printing and the Wi-Fi connection. It is also very easy to set up. Money well spent I think.
Summary: I bought this recently to replace an old photocopier and fax machine and a relatively new printer because I need the space plus the flexibility of a wireless machine.It does all the jobs very well, though its not as fast as my other printer (now given to my daughter). I would like there to be a phone handset connection on the machine as well as fax. I've looked in the handbook but it doesn't look as if that is possible.
