Excerpt: Came with a computer kit I bought so didn`t expect much for a kit printer/scanner.Was happily surprised at the photos it turned out when used in best quality mode.Painfully slow to print in high quality,I mean painfull! I put on coffee percolator and finished two mugs off then washed my hair and picture was still printing(was for A4 size with lots of detail).Very good quality though when done,just do not be in a rush.Good software came with it,simple to use and lots of...
Excerpt: I suspect any good reviews of this printer come from people who haven`t had it for long! I made the mistake of buying this because it was the cheapest, but THE REPLACEMENT CARTRIDGES ARE AMONG THE MOST EXPENSIVE and run out in the blink of an eye. Build quality is appaling plus it is slow, noisy, and unreliable. I don`t know how Lexmark have got the nerve to turn out this kind of shite.
Excerpt: I bought this printer because it was cheap. Well I got what I paid for. This unit is a peice of junk! The cartridges last a few days and I was stupid enough to buy new ones (that cost more than the printer) and they dried out in a month after printing maybe 2 or 3 pages. GARBAGE!
Excerpt: Used to think this was an `ok` machine, despite having to sell one of my children to renew its cartridges, however recently updated to Vista and tried to download the `vista compatible` drivers from Lexmark site. Three words come to mind.....WORSE THAN USELESS!!! It takes 5 mins after you have hit the `print` button for the damned thing to kick in and realise that you might just want to print something and as for scanning and copying, forget it!
Excerpt: Lexmark X1190 has been purchased by me a year ago mainly for general home use. The price £44.99, design, colour and light weight as well as the fact that it is all in one printer was very applealing to me so I decided to get it! I have bought Lexmark cartridges for black and colour ink as well that costed me about £36 in total. They were finished within a month even though I did not use the printer much.
Pros: All in One !
Cons: Drinks ink like water & photos come out of poor quality
Excerpt: The X1190, is a printer that may already be familiar to hundreds of people. It's all-in-one functionality, simple design and good looks make it a popular choice for re-branding. This model is currently disguised in huge quantities for the likes of Dell, Samsung and Kodak. Surprising then, that the printer suffers from a fundamental design fault that has caused countless sheets of paper to be chewed, scrunched, mis-printed and messed-about!
Good printer, let down buy the cost of cartridges.

Excerpt: I bought my X1190 as a replacement for a really old Canon printer. I paid only £50 in Comet, and as it's a photocopier, scanner and printer in one I thought this was a bargain. It's a slightly larger size than most printers, and was huge in comparison to my previous one. As it performed the extra tasks of scanning and copying though, I thought I was actually saving sspace by not having to buy a seperate scanner.
