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 was drawn to this printer because of the inexpensive ink cartridges. All went well for about a month and then the first of three print heads went bad. Over a one year period of time I went through three new print heads and a whole new printer. Luckily my old printer still worked and I could hook it up in between getting new print heads. If Lexmark can get the print head problem fixed, this probably would not be a bad printer.
Pros: Can hookup to computers both with a wired or wireless connection.
Cons: Keep having to replace print head (three times)
Summary: I was excited to get it home and set it up. The process was relatively painless and that made me even more excited. Wifi was seamless and connected easily. Printing was great. Ink usage was awesome and that was the reason I changed from HP. Then after 31 days the printer started up with some kind of check which made it go through setup again. After that it started printing boxes and lines over the top of the document sent to it.
Nice print quality, good features, but some problems

Summary: The printer works well, providing very good print quality. I especially liked the wireless connectivity and the scanner, where the original can be fed through a paper handler or laid on a flat screen. I have only used the printer for month, so reliability is still unknown. There are a few things that could be better. The print cartridges are different than pictured in the installation drawings, and my printer had both old and new types.
Summary: The printer has a good rating which prompted my purchase. However, it's got one big issue that I can't overlook. The printer does not recover from sleep mode. It's get's very frustrating when you're trying to print and your printer is on vacation and not responding. Otherwise, lovely looking printer and I like the two sided printing capabilities. I returned the Lexmark and dusted off my Brother All-in-One network printer and I am back to reliable printing again.
Summary: 3/3/2011. This is an update to my original review (see below). To recap, I liked the machine in principal but it had a few severe weaknesses: had to reboot frequently to get the computer and printer to talk to each other and it could not handle card stock. I was managing to work with that until I started to get wide blue streaks across the pages. Must be the print head, I thought, so ran the head cleaner utility provided by Lexmark.
Summary: This looks like it should be a good product. I'd really like all the features that it offers except for the fact that the touchscreen gradually becomes unusable and even starts acting on its own. I once had it send a fax for *066#, which is a number it actually came up on its own! I called Lexmark and they claimed that a "few" other people have complained of something similar and that they are sending me a replacement. Let's hope that works out.
Summary: Habe diesen Drucker seit April, die ersten Tage guter Druck, danach ganz gosse Sch.....! Nach kurzer Zeit schon Druckkopf defekt! Warte seit fast 14 Tage auf Lieferung von Lexmark auf neuen Druckkopf.Ich würde dieses Gerät nicht mehr kaufen.
