Summary: As a printer, my first one lasted me over 4-5 years. It survived a move, and served me great. When it finally did fail, it was due (I believe) to a simple mechanical failure that would probably have been an easy fix. I however have neither the patience nor the knowledge to fix printers, and so bought a replacement. I spacifically sought out the X1150 because I belive they are reliable in the long term, and are very easy to use.
Summary: I have purchases 3 of theses. One for myself and the other 2 for my sisters. They are very reliable. (X1150 & X1185) they look and do the exact same things. The only problems that one of my sisters had was trying to refill the cartridges herself. Lexmark is making it almost impossible to have your cartridges refilled. It burnt out her printer. Therefore the need to purchase this one on ebay, Lesson learned tho.
Summary: Good OCR software. Easy setup - just follow the step-by-step poster/instructions. Ink is easy to find on eBay - at 30%-40% less than office stores. Decent speed for a basic-type all-in-one. Very easy to use fax/printer/scanner interface. All round great value.
Summary: I got this printer because I was looking for an all-in-one. It's a 3-n-1. The scanner feature is outstanding. i love the voice prompts when its connected to the computer. The scanner is the best feature it has. The printer is just above average on print quality for documents but there is something to be said of its fuzzy photo printing ability. The ink at best is expensive but I have been able to purchase ink on ebay in lots at about $30 for 3 27s and 2 17s.
Summary: Its a nice looking printer and easy to operate I purchased it for the package its capable doing My strongest dislike its a ink guzzler to make it worse the cartriges are way to expensive compared to some other brands Id look at other printers and there features before purchasing one but like mentioned other than the ink issue there nice printers
GREAT PRINTER @ A GREAT PRICE!! RELIABLE!!! 8 out of 10

Summary: We purchased our Lexmark X1150 All-In-One Printer brand new in approx 2003 or 2004, and have been very happy with it. As an All-In-One, it functions very well. It does tend to use more ink than expected/desired, but the ink is readily available on eBay and also at your local stores, and the ink is fairly priced.
