Summary: Got an X73 with a Dell System. Dead on arrival right out of the box. After days of getting the run around from both Dell and Lexmark, it was finally replaced free of charge. After 2 years and paying more for the ink cartriges than the price of a new All in One, The thing finally crapped out.
Summary: I have a Lexmark X73 with the same problems that is seems others are having. I have done everything including buying a new power supply, uninstalled the softward, and setup all over agin. I even bought new cartridges and made sure they were properly installed and the same problem happens.
Summary: -Terrible install software, regardless of Windows version (in other words, typical Lexmark) -Plastic main roller gear splits and causes feed failure It's the perfect printer for those who like struggling with software errors and covering their hands in ink and epoxy!
Summary: For the money there are many better printers than this one. Epsons are by far superior, but never mind quality. Let's talk about support. If you're a Mac user or ever intend to even consider it, don't bother with Lexmark.
Summary: I got this in a bundle with a Dell computer about 3 years ago. I have Windows XP and had no extreme problems installing the printer. I have had to re-install the drivers a few times, but this usually solves any "glitches", and it's not that big of a deal to do.
Summary: This came with a Dell Computer in a package from QVC as a family computer,but before I could run a whole cartridge of ink through it the paper advance started crumpling up paper after paper. Tech support on Lexmarks website explains how it works and the paper advance is overengineered.
Summary: I have had nightmares with the driver for this machine. At first I thought a virus was slowing down my imac to near crashes (in os x? Never before.) I even got an Apple technician out, who ended up replacing the motherboard.
Doesn't work and support doesn't know what's the problem

Summary: I would like to warn product. The driver software is not Windows compitable. On my system with W2k after updating it to SP4 the Lexmark software caused the system to crush. After re-formatting and re-installing OS several times every time the software was installed caused the same.
Summary: I gave this to my husband as a gift on Christmas 2001. He never had any trouble setting it up to run on Windows ME. However, after buying some high-priced printer cartridges (including a color cartridge for $49.99 plus tax), the printer stopped working. A few months later, the scanner has quit, too.
Summary: When I purchase my lexmark x73 it came with my system it worked good for 1 1/2 years, out of the blue it started making this loud clicking noise when I tried to use the copy machine, I was under warrenty for 2 years the company sent me a brand new one lasted 7 months by that time the warrenty...
