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.
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...
Summary: Got my Lexmark printer today and it's going back today. Very poor design "glitch". Whenever I tried printing something, I'd be advised to clear up the paper jam first - except there was no paper jam. It took 30 minutes to produce 3 pages because the "paper jam" advisory kept interrupting the printing process. Very disappointing! Will go back to HP or Canon, which I have owned in the past and which have been reliable and efficient.
Summary: We got this printer about 8 months ago. We have not had any problems at all with it. I happen to like the fact that it lets you know on the computer screen that the ink is low cuz thats not something I tend to remember until its too late. I can't speak to the scan feature since we haven't used it, but we do find the print crisp and clean. The copies are crisp and clean also. All in all, a great all-in-one.
Summary: It started off as a good economy printer/scanner/copier. Printing quality is mediocre. Scanning is average. Setup was unusually long with an excessive amount of install files. None of this bothered me much. But after a few times with the obscene voice announcing that "Printing Complete" I had enough. Playing with the drivers was confusing but I finally got rid of the voice. Then I started having notifications and advertisements for ink cartridges.
