This printer is great as long as its working

  • 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.

A printer for a beginner / home office!

  • 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.

"needs printhead re-engineering!"

5 July 2012
  • Pros: I have a pro205 now for two years. It has great print quality and I have had no issues other than one failed printhead. Great printing quality, no jams, great OCR and paper identification.
  • Cons: The printhead is the major failure of this printer and I have had one cartridge in the recycle program that didn't work at all, but they sent me a free replacement and a discount on next order. I wrote to them to re-engineer the printhead.

  • Pros: I had no issues setting up the Wi FI or the printer itself. I printed over a hundred pages with no hassles over our network computers. Maybe it is just me, but I found the software easy to follow, and easy to install. While installing the software on the
  • Cons: The printer cartridge are a bit pricey, but pretty much all printer cartridge are that way. If you get a cheap printer always check the price of the printer cartridge. You have the option of just getting the smaller size ones, or getting the big ones for

"One of the better buys on the market, worth the money"

  • Pros: An Outstanding Buy, Ink use is projected to be much less then others in this price range.
  • Cons: One MUST READ INSTRUCTION Very closely. Paper tray is a bit unfriendly to work with for the untrained. Removing packing tape will be a chore...Tape is everywhere take your time here. Installing ink cart. for the first time is a bit of a trial as well

"Great All in One for the price!"

Gr8ful0217, CNET
16 September 2010
  • Pros: This is an extremely quiet printer with scan, fax capabilities. It prints great photos/graphics without using excessive ink or soaking the page.
  • Cons: The top paper feed (when scanning/making multiple page copies) was tempermental and often stopped feeding pages--although they were in position. Scanned pages sometimes produced crooked images regardless of how the page was adjusted on the scanner.

"Over-all good, but poor scanner capabilities"

agabrans, CNET
5 September 2010
  • Pros: I love the convenience of the wireless scanning and printing etc. This is great! The quality of the print is really nice too.
  • Cons: I do not like the scanner capabilities. I would like to be able to change the percentage of size as well as have more options in scanner.

So far, so good

  • 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.
