Excerpt: Every time I've purchased a new computer I've received a free lexmark printer, usually a three-in-one or scanner type. This is the only one that I've had no problems with. The quality of the print-outs is fairly good; not hi-quality, but good enough for most people's purposes. The scanner does a good job. I've scanned a number of very old family photos and then had them professionally printed, and the quality of the scans has proven to be very good.
Great printer you can access from anywhere in the house.

Excerpt: This printer is great. In todays society with desktop computers being used less and less, who wants to have to plus in their laptop anytime they want to print something? With the Lexmark X4875 you can set it up through your wireless router and print from almost anywhere in your home. I spend a lot of time in my living room using my laptop and the printer is back in the office.
Excerpt: If you are a person looking for high quality performance, durability and for practical, all-in-one printers, this printer is your best choice, but if money and cost is a concern, be very weary when purchasing. While the printer's performance is top-quality, and the printer itself is not very expensive, being able to replace the ink is not in many peoples' reach.
Excerpt: I purchased this all-in-one printer about a year ago. It does not fax but that was not an issue with me. Overall it prints text well and fairly fast but seems to go thru alot of ink and for some reason I have a hard time finding this ink locally and it's expensive. I find the scanning features to be confusing although I have been able to scan once I figured it out. It's larger than I would like, but at the time most of the all-in-one's were huge. I paid under $100...
Excerpt: This is a great printer to use with a household with 5 computers running at any one time. You don't have to be connected to the printer to use it, you don't have to even be in the same room. The printer was easy to set up and use. The only draw back seems to be the cost of the ink. You have to replace the ink pretty often.
Pros: Prints B&W Text at about 30ppm and color at an impressive 22ppm! Idle, allows printer to "sleep" which saves energy costs.
Cons: Using WiFi with this printer is quite the hassle on both the PC and Mac fronts. Issues with tethering and even issues with drivers. Requires you to download more drivers from Lexmark's Webpage. Interface is quite blocky. Wake up time can be sketchy
Summary: The software is rather bad for a serious old printer brand. Scanning by Wi-Fi is a trial. In 80% of the cases the entire software has to be reloaded to get Wi-Fi going. As a USB printer the performance is excellent. Wi-Fi tumbs down.
Pros: Good and practical design, excellent USB performance, great as a colour photocopier amd low in electricity consumption. Low purchasing price.
Cons: Most of the time Wi-Fi does not work even with supplied new software against the glitch.
