Summary: Had this printer for 2-3 years. Have gone through 4 print heads and one whole printer. Have had great customer support and fast replacement time. Not sure I will go with Lexmark again even with a 5 year warranty.
Pros: $5 black ink. Good prints when working. 5yr warranty.
Cons: Can't maintain wifi connection. Color ink not cheap. Poor quality control or design.
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: The BEST & CHEAPEST DISPOSABLE DIAPERS YOU CAN EVER BUY!!! I mean, printing Black all the time is low cost! But it'll break eventually and give you HEADACHES!!!
Pros: Great when it works!!!!
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.
Choose another Lexmark, this has print head problems

Summary: So even though I get a new printhead, usually in two business days, it is very frustrating to have to do this every time I run out of ink You also have to send them the defective printhead back ( they pay postage), but I'm thinking they just send them out again to others having the same problem.
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.
Summary: Lexmark and I have a love hate relationship. I hate their printers and they love to sell them to me. Long story short, back in the 90s when I had a Lexmark printer, it was the only printer that I had or have ever had that the ink on the printer dried up when I didn't use it for a couple of weeks. I pretty much swore off the company since then, because as you know, ink is too expensive to be drying due to lack of use.
