Excerpt: This printer is awesome.... as long as it is working! I have only had the printer for a month and I have had to call customer service twice to get the software updated. I think that is very rediculous. Though I have had great customer service, I think that there is no reason that I should have to be calling them so often to get a connection between my computer and printer. Now, besides that problem, and when the printer is working, it is amazing.
Excerpt: I am a returning grad student and found this printer met 97% of my needs to print research resources. Terrific for printing double side, saves on paper, and the ink last at least two quarters.
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.

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: 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.
