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.
Excerpt: The best part about this printer is that the ink cartridges are cheap. In the past, I have always avoided buying ink cartridges because I would find new printers that are cheaper. But this time, I will keep the printer because the ink is so cheap. Also, it has a fax machine, scanner, and copier, and this is good because many all-in-ones tend to exclude faxing capabilities.
Summary: This is by far the best printer i have ever purchased and I have had HP,s and Brother printers in the past. Since purchasing the printer last month, I did have one problem with the copies having smeared black ink across them. I called Lexmark support and within one day they sent me a replacement ink printer cartridge via FED_EX with all new ink as well. I was amazed at how fast they responded and the helpfulness of their customer support team.
Summary: This is the second Lexmark Pro901 we have. We bought this one for compatibility and use in our motorhome - mainly as a wireless printer through our router. Nice printer. Easy set-up. Can easily add and change special printer applications from Lexmark web-site. Wireless set-up was surprisingly easy. Wireless printing speed is very good. WHY 4 STARS INSTEAD OF 5? Be aware!
Summary: The Pro901 was the easiest printer I have ever installed. It was as simple as it could be for such a complex piece of engineering. It performs with good quality that is very acceptable for business letters and standard brochures. And the low ink cost is its most salient feature. The only drawback is that it is slow to initiate functions, but once it starts printing the speed is fine. In my opinion the print quality is very good, but for photographs it is not exceptional.

Summary: Let me start by first stating that this printer has really a lot of cool features. I bought this primarily for the following reasons: 1. It is a wireless printer 2. It can scan; 3. It can do double sided printing; 4. You can directly email a scanned document to someone without having to save it to your computer 5. The ink was cheap.
Summary: After all of the packing material is removed and the head and color cartridges are installed the printer helps you through installation. The black ink print was light at the test print. The second test print was better.
Printer itself is nothing special, but the ink savings make this a winner!

Summary: The four stars are do, almost entirely, to the fact that the black ink for this printer is a mere $5 per 500 pages. For someone who has spent the last few years wasting money on printers that ate ink almost as fast as I changed the cartridges, this is a lifesaver. However, in every other respect it's just a normal printer with normal problems.
