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...
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.
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.
