Excerpt: My overall experience with the Lexmark X 2500 has been horrible. In my opinion this is a very bad printer and it’s not worth the money that I paid for it. I purchased this printer about 5 months ago and I have completely stopped using it because …
Summary: This printer has few annoying aspects. The major one being that it must be aligned every cartridge change which prints a color page (wasting ink), and then scans it (wasting time). Funny thing is that you can print over the network before alignment and the printout is fine.
Summary: $[...] for real???? Must be joking when I saw this price on amazon... My brother brought this printer at [...] online special for $[...] and let me tell you he got what he pay for, a peace of usable junk... I say usable because it was once usable for about 30 pages of texts..
Summary: Bought this for about 45 because I needed a cheap scanner that would work with my Windows Vista laptop (okay this was 4 years ago). Had a Canon MP that stopped feeding paper and wouldnt work with Vista thus the cheap solution. For scanning the X2500 is good.
Summary: I had so many problems just getting the WiFi feature to work. After three attempts of reloading the software and set up, it finally worked. The print quality is atrocious, and it seems like I have to buy new ink cartridges with my books every semester. The duplex mechanism jams during the winter.
Summary: I have had this printer for over a year. Had one problem with printer, it would only print a single page of any document. Had to choose to print each page one at a time. Lexmark was able to solve this problem without much hassle.
Summary: I have had this machine a while now, and it has served me well and good--absolutely, no complaints. The price is right (as compaed to those other pricey brands that do the same job more or less). So, go get yourself one--recommended!
Good priced all-in-one for those who don't print a lot

Summary: I used this printer during 7th and 8th grade. It was adequate for my uses then, when I was printing little. By the end of 8th grade I was printing a lot and chewing up ink really fast. The cost of the printer is phenomenal for all it does, but the cartridges are way too expensive.
Summary: We bough our Lexmark x2500 printer primarily because it promised to be a good choice economically. We were mistaken. The printer is an ink sink. When you put in a new ink cartridge, you are always required to print an "alignment" page.
Summary: Like the other reviewer said, this piece of junk wastes sooooooo much ink doing a completely unnecessary "alignment" page every time you do something except straight photocopying. The scanner function doesn't work properly and the print quality sucks!
