Cons: Poor touch/keypad operation Software solutions don't work consistently on both PC & Mac BIG: Left hinge broken with regular/gentle use. Now sheet feeder jams because of misalignment. No repair center in my area will touch it.
Summary: I have had this printer for some time now. I have replaced the print head cartridge twice. This is the poorest quality printer I have ever owned. I have had nothing but trouble with it since I got it. I do not recommend this printer to anyone. I have gone through all the troubleshooting help they offer and still have horizontal lines in my black ink. I have exhausted every avenue of help. I do not recommend this product for anyone.
Pros: It prints cleanly (WHEN it prints). No other pros, sorry. I would be lying if I said there were.
Cons: 1) service sucks (see summary) 2) only the printer ever works consistently 3) no automatic software update, so if it's been a while since you've used scan and fax, you'll have to spend lots additional time to fix-usually when you can least afford it!
"Works well MAYBE 25% of the time. Cheap & unreliable."
17 August 2012
Pros: Reasonably Priced and seemed to be designed well, feature-wise.
Cons: Constantly must restart Scanner/Copier lid broke after a year while opening normally. Have to slam paper tray for full closure Often won't grab paper for auto feed Printer head failure with limited use - not firmware Often won't register ink refills
Cons: installation was an endless aggravation, printing is very slow, I get undecipherable error messages (such as the big red X on the printer staying lit for no discernable reason) -- never had problems like this with the lexmark 205 -- sorry i upgraded
Pros: Cheap... except when it comes time to replace the ink. Regular inks only last a few sheets, and the "XL" inks last a bit more, but still not all that long. I will say that the scan to email feature worked well... that is about it, however.
Cons: Ink doesn't last long. Made of cheap thin plastic. Hinge on the top broke after gentle use, and now sheet feeder isn't working. It is mac *compatible*, but all the setup software is for windows. Will not print on 3x5 note cards printed from Excel.
"Terrible printer, failed before printing 100 pages"
8 November 2011
Pros: Setup was easy but if it can't print even 100 sheets before it breaks what good is the printer. No wonder it was on sale.
Cons: Printer head issue brought the priner to it's knees and forced it to be replaced. I did a quick search on line and I am not the only one that has had the same error that is unfixable by Lexmark. DO NOT BUY THIS PRINTER!!
"Beautiful to look at, User friendly, but dysmal."

Pros: Looks nice and works great -- when it works; cheap black ink.
Cons: Paper jams for fun; Envelopes print 50% of the time; On my second printer sent from Lexmark and third print-head; very touchscreen delay is annoying; Loses wirelesss signal constantly; print-jobs take a long time to inititialize.
