Not at all what I expected from Lexmark
9 September 2012
Excerpt: Ok so I was at afirst a fan of Lexmark...I was until this printer was bought for my home. We bought the Lexmark X5250 because of the price and the fact that it was an all around printer/copier/scanner and could do photos with the right ink of course. So our first few experiences with it were honestly alright...
Summary: As previous critics have written, the printer does not feed paper correctly, which leads to *most* print jobs having to be redone. It is so frustrating to see the "Paper Jam" and "Printer Out of Paper" (when it's not) error messages pop up every time I want to print something. And as another critic mentioned, the printer uses a lot of ink. Since printjobs must be done over so often, so much ink gets wasted on half-printed pages that are torn up by this machine.
Summary: I bought the x5150 about 8 months ago and thought it was pretty good. Soon the cartridges emptied after not much printing and I learned the hard lesson. I knew the cartridges weren't cheap but I thought I'd refill them. That didn't work. I went to local refill company and was told the sponges in Lexmark cartridges are difficult (they gave up trying)and they only sold other companies' remanufactured or OEM.
