Summary: This is the 3rd Lexmark printer I have owned. After about 1 year of ownership, all of them started having problems picking up paper. They would randomly say, "Out of paper", when there was plenty of paper. Clear the error, try again and usually it would work on the 2nd try. A bigger complaint is the high cost of ink. And get this! -- run out of color ink and now you can't print even a document in black, even if you have plenty of ink in the black cartridge!
Continuously needed to reinstall software and reset to factory settings
22 August 2012
Summary: I really desperately want to Office Space this expensive piece of crap. For every single time I wish to use the wireless scan option of this device, I must reset it first to factory settings and reinstall the software on all of my computers which turns a 15 minute job into a 3 hour ordeal. This device is not user friendly at all and habitually forgets its network settings.
Summary: Pretty bad experience overall. WIFI, even after numerous driver updates was almost non-functional with either my iMAC or my Windows 8 laptop. Had to switch to USB. Ink cartridges last for anywhere between just 50%-75% of their listed capacity on the package. (since the last two cartridge purchase, I have been keeping track of how many pages the printer printed) When it does work, it does an OK job, nothing stellar.
Summary: Wireless still not working, so I have to keep it next to the computer. Cartridges are a problem - says there's no ink, when practically new, stops working with "left cartridge incorrect" message, although it is the prescribed cartridge. Sometimes it comes back on, sometimes it doesn't. What a waste of money!
TOO EXPENSIVE TO MAINTAIN; COST OF INK IS OUTRAGEOUS!!!

Summary: Will never buy another Lexmark...wouldn't even accept as free...ink is way too expensive and the wireless function is below-fair at best...it's always been an issue. It looks pretty, but lacks function.
Summary: For my X5650 LEXMARK, I have had to buy a new black cartridge ($24 plus tax at Walmart) after just about 50 sheets. The cartridge was 36 black. This adds up to about 45 cents a page. The maintenance people (people with barely understandable English) told me that that is not unusual. This cost is outrageous!
Stubborn, erratic and eats ink behind your back. Cat likes it when it works

Summary: July, 2011 update I find it to be a decent printer, but the problems still outweigh worthwhile. I've been too lazy to buy another all-in-one printer with WiFi. I put off getting new, extremely expensive ink, and thus seldom use it. Again, I did buy ink, and again, it has run fewer that 35 pages and is already out of ink. It would be far cheaper to buy an expensive printer with cheap ink. Fie on Lexmark! Do not buy this. ------------ This printer is a problem.
