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.
Cons: Definitely a design flaw. Had a printhead replaced free of charge and will need another one now. I use Black Ink Print ONLY for School and none in color. I'm having the problem with the black ink as it either prints very weak or prints squares
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.

Pros: Easy set up wirelessly, very easy to use although a little slow, print is of medium good quality.
Cons: Every time I change ink cartridges (3 times), within 3-5 days I get print head error message. Contact Lexmark support and after many unsuccessful attempts to solve problem they say you have defective printhead cartridge, and send me a new one.
Pros: The ink cost is awesome. I do alot a black and white printing and I saved alot of money in the 4 months that I had it.
Cons: I had nothing but problems with the scanner. I usually scan about 30 pages a day and I had to babysit it every time. The adf always jammed or scanned about 4 pages at once. Sometimes I would get to about 20 pages, it would jam and I would have to start al
