Summary: My original X6170 that I bought new in 2003 was working fine until March 2012. I looked inside and a small spring below the cartridges became unhooked. I called Lexmark and they were of no help. So I decided to check E Bay for a back up model and that way I could fix my original one. The shipping was more that the price of the printer. So what, the price was great and I fixed my original one.
Summary: I bought my present X6170 printer about 6 years ago and I've been using it ever since. I do an awful lot of printing and scanning, it's great. I love the scan feature, it's really easy to scan, to copy and to fax with this machine. About six weeks ago, my printer died so I bought another Lexmark, it was in NO way comparable with the X6170. It used too much ink too fast, too many problems trying to scan and was very, very slow when printing.
Summary: you can still refill ink cartridges and no chip in cartridge to stop printing after so many uses as newer printers bought this as back-up since I found out about lexmark greed to gobble up money in ink cartridges

17 February 2010
Summary: LEXMARK HIT THIS NAIL ON THE HEAD WITH THIS UNIT FAST PRESICE AND DURABLE WE PRINT AT LEAST 1000 PAGES A DAY EVERYDAY WITH NO PROBLEMS WE HAVE USED THTHIS MODLE EXCLUSIVELUY FOR YEARS AND WHEN THEY DO GET SLOW AFTER 4-5 YEARS WE PURCHASE A NEW OR REFURBISHED UNIT VERY PLEASE WITH LEXMARK AND WE REFILL OUR OWN CARTRIDGES TO SAVE EVEN MORE
Summary: I like that it is an All-in-one, that it does everything (print, fax, scan and copy), but there is one little glitch. I don't know if it is a problem with all Lexmark X6170s (which I very much doubt, because I used to have one for regular use at one point and I never experienced this problem before), but whenever I try to copy something, I don't get all of the data back on the paper. A little part at the bottom of the paper gets cut off, so it is not an exact copy.
The Lexmark X6170 All-In-One printer is a great buy.

Summary: I have had my Lexmark X6170 All-In-One printer almost two months and I love it!! It it very easy to use. It is great for every day home use but, it is also perfect for my home business too. I love that it has a flat bed for easy copying. You can feed up to 50 pages at a time to fax. My last printer was also a Lexmark but I had to manually feed each page of a fax into the machine, which didn't always work that well.
