Lexmark printer gives me nightmares.
9 September 2012
Excerpt: Ok, the Lexmark X1150 doesn't really give me nightmares, but it is definitely a pain to use. After spending around $80 just for the ink, I had trouble setting it up to print accurately and evenly without some lines appearing bolded where they were not. Also while trying to print out pictures, right after buying brand new black and color ink catridges, the picture came out in terrible quality.
Summary: Bought this as a replacement for another similar Lexmark model which lasted us 3 years. Had just spent $60 on ink when it died so it made sense to get something that used the same carts. Never been real happy with this printer. Color copies were very grainy with lines through it. Experimented with different settings but nothing really helped. Didn`t use color a whole lot because of the poor quality and after a couple months the color ink carts would not work at all.
Summary: This printer sucks up ink like no other and ink cartridges are expensive. I purchase new ones, even though the software says it's still full. Once I put the cartridges in, it will last for a few pages, then start streaking again. I tried to do the maintenance cleaning just in case the nozzles were clogged, but this didn't help either. As far as the scanner goes, it does a good job.
Summary: This printer was only $40.00 at Wal-Mart when I purchased it. I have had it about a year with no problems at all. The documents printed nicely, but took a few minutes per page. I also noticed that the ink is used up quickly. After about 200 pages, the ink needs replaced at a hefty $30.00 each! The all in one function is the only plus; I found that the scanner works great. If you only print occassionally, this may be the printer for you.
Summary: I like the product, but I didn't the condition it which it came in. But I guess you get what you pay for. The ink is swearing on the paper. It has tape on top of the ink cartage to hold it down. So in all what I bought it for was to print documents, and it does a poor job in doing that. But the other function work fine. Thats why I gave it an Below average rating, because I'm going to end up having to buy another one from somewhere else.
Summary: Wonder why you're getting a printer so cheap? You're probalby only getting reject half filled cartridges included, and look at the cost of new cartridges and consider how frequently you may need to buy them unless you hardly ever do any printing. I bought the x5150 about 8 months ago and thought it was pretty good. Soon the cartridges emptied after not much printing and I learned the hard lesson. I knew the cartridges weren't cheap but I thought I'd refill them.
Summary: I purchased this in the store on clearance and new. 95% of the time while printing color, the cartridge "stalled". I would have to open up the printer, take out and put back the cartridges, and start it back up. 50% of the time, Windows XP would lock up. I had all the drivers and patches installed from the Lexmark website, but it would not work. After a while, BW printouts started "stalling". So much wasted time and paper.
Summary: The Lexmark PrinTrio is a multi purpose printer, it says multi but really it's just a scanner built in to it. At first you look at the printer and it has quite a nice sleek look to it, a nice design. It sits quite well anywhere really and despite it's age still looks quite modern. Don't let the modern looks fool you, quite honestly I think this is the worst printer / scanner that i have ever used.
Summary: I bought this printer when I had a new computer about 6 years ago. The computer has since died and gone to computer heaven/hell, but I still have the printer. There are several reasons that I bought it. Firstly, it was from a reliable brand and you can easily get replacement cartriges. Secondly, the printer is multifunction, which means you can scan and copy documents and also fax documents if you have the appropriate software.
