Summary: We got this to replace a 8 year old HP3030 MFN and the price after a $50 trade-in rebate was unbeatable. That printer could never network and hence was a pain. Liked the looks, feel of buttons etc compared to the cheap black plastics of other competitors. Seems like everythings a little sturdier than the competition here. I have a home wired ethernet network with 3 desktop computers and 3 laptops running Vista 64/Vista32 and XP.
I don't know why this great unit has such poor reviews here...

Summary: I wanted to get a MFP that I could share amongst 2 iMacs, 1 Macbook Pro, 1 Mac mini, and 3 Windows laptops (7 and XP Pro). I also wanted to use Airprint when it comes out (for printing from iPhones and iPads) which would likely require direct attachment to a server via USB vs. networking over wireless or ethernet. I was tired of spending 2-3 times the cost of the printer itself on ink a year so decided I was going to go laser this time around.
Summary: Comments about Lexmark X204N Multifunction Printer: The printer and copiers were easy to network and works great with a router on 3 PCs. Some reviews suggested the printer was not quite as good as other lasers, however, it looks fine to me. I give it "4" only because I'm having a problem networking the scanner. I believe it is more a Windows problem than a hardware situation. Most likely this printer should be a "5".
Pros: Easy Setup, Easy To Use, Fast Operation, Great Print Quality, Reliable
Summary: I use this mostly to print out documents at home with some occasional scan and fax use. The printer is set up on my home network and I access it with both Macs and PCs and works flawlessly with both OSes for scan and print. Print quality is great as you would expect of any laser printer. I set up the email scan feature and so it is a very painless process to scan a few documents and have them waiting for me in my email inbox.

Pros: dimensioni , prezzo di acquisto e qualità di stampa
Summary: Hab den meinem Freund geschenkt der ist eigentlich ganz glücklich mit dem ab und zu muckt er ein bissl rum aber das ist halt so bei Technik. Wir haben ihn ca seit nem knappen Jahr in Benutzung und mussten noch nichts auswechseln (Patrone). Aber ich glaub der kann nur schwarz weiß find ich bissl doof aber sonst supi.
Summary: Habe das Gerät im Rahmen einer Lexmark-Cashback Aktion gekauft und jetzt einige Tage im Einsatz und bin damit zufrieden, es funktioniert alles, der Bedienkomfort ist für den Preis auch in Ordnung. Habe das Gerät via Netzwerkkabel über einen Router (Speedport W723V) im Netz eingebunden. Die Rechner sind mit Windows Vista und Windows7/x64 ausgestattet.
