Summary: I very rarely leave bad reviews or any reviews but this printer is the printer from hec. Between print spool issues and bad cartridges (yes I buy Lexmark not gray market) and paper jams and on it goes - this printer is going to be donated because I have a stock of cartridges and for someone who can buy it for 15 bucks maybe it will be worth the headaches. I will NOT buy another Lexmark. I will buy an Epson that both my son's have for 1/3 the price and be happy again.
Summary: Did not see that I was purchasing a reconditioned machine. Lexmark not making them any more. However, my previous machine was wonderful and I had a lot of new ink, so I got this one, it was defective, and Lexmark sent me a replacement that so far seems like the new machine I purchased almost 4 years ago. I will reluctantly purchase future machines next time from a manufacturer that is still making new machines.
Summary: When the printer worked, it generally worked well. But over the course of two years, I went through three printheads. Print quality was pretty good when it was working, though somewhat slow compared to printers introduced in 2013. The wireless features were sporadic, especially in a multi-computer household with a mix of PC's and MAC's. Generally we could only get one computer at a time to print wirelessly, and the rest had to be hooked up via USB.
Summary: At the time of this writing, the printer has generally negative reviews, of which I understand and agree with. When I bought this printer, it actually had good reviews and even good video reviews on YouTube. It was very exciting to get a printer with a display, wireless capabilities and cheap ink! The printer is great in theory, but falls a short of reasonable expectations.
Summary: I admit, this isn't the BEST printer out there but good enough for me to have purchased 3 of them for three of my housing. You probably won't find a printer that will save you money in the long run, especially when it comes to paying for ink refills. In terms of printing quality, it does its job, no doubt but if you want clear and vivid image for lecture notes for CT scans of MRIs, go for a laser printer, but again, this computer does its job above average I think.
There is a problem communicating with the printer AND

Summary: I bought a Pinnacle Pro901 for my for my home office and it worked great for months. So I purchased an identical one for my small business. And then the problems began, and not just with one of the printers but with both. I began receiving lots of messages from the printer that needed translation. 1) "There is a problem communicating with the printer" means "You need to unplug this piece of junk and plug it back in or there is no chance anything will happen.
works good black and white but poor color performance

Summary: This printer works ok for low volume black and white printing. The color printing is below par. Even on simple color graphics streaks and smears are common. If you would like to print an occasional photo you definatly don't want this printer. The fax scan and copy functions work well and the low black ink cost is real nice.
Summary: Lexmark hit a home run with this one. It self feeds for scanning and the print cartridges are CHEAP!!!! I bought one of these brand new a year ago and decided I needed one at home so I went to ebay and bought another. It's nice to have fax/copy/scan/print in my office and now in my home.
