Summary: Purchased here Dec, 2010. Am on 3rd print head! Used as main printer for my small business (average 1 ream in 4-6 weeks) so this sucks to be down til (5yr) warranty replacement comes in. Has tendency to jam when using card stock & labels. As the feed flips paper 180 deg, this is an issue.
Summary: I would love this printer except for the ink issues I keep having with it. I have replaced the color cartridges and I never really do color prints. I am currently trying to do a black and white print job for a letter.
Summary: Don't waste your money on this printer. The reviews look nice, and setup on a local machine is easy, but thereafter it is terrible: Lexmark scanning s/w hangs after scanning 81 photos at 1200 dpi. Has a 2 pixel wide grey stripe down the middle of the scanning surface at 1200 dpi.
Summary: I brought this printer a little over a year ago with great expectations. Unfortunately those has been dashed with 2 failed printheads, poor print quality, constant and slow reboots, very slow printing starts, and uneeded down time waiting for printhead to arrive in mail.
Summary: I was sold this printer by a slick sales person at the local electronics store. Her pitch made the printer sound like the best thing since ice cream. Well, the ice cream melted quickly. The printer worked fine for the 1st week, then the printhead went out.
Summary: Comments about Lexmark Platinum Pro905: Pros: Within 20 days of purchase the printhead failed. Lexmark replaced the entire printer. 8 weeks later the printhead in the newly replaced Pro905 has failed and Lexmark is sending a replacement print head. Cons: An apparent print head failure issue.
Summary: We were really happy with this printer for about a week, then couldn't use it anymore because of a Printhead Error. Looking at internet forums it seems that many people have had the same problem and went through the same steps as I did to (unsuccessfully) fix this problem.
Summary: In the 6 months since we have purchased this printer, it has been nothing but trouble. I wouldn't recommend it for business use at all. It uses a lot of ink and is poor quality for business documents. The paper trays are flimsy and it is difficult to print envelopes.
