Summary: I bought this printer about 2002. It is a good enough printer for me since I am not using it for business. i just learned today though that if you have not been using it for in excess of a month. you want to take a soft cloth and gently clean it inside and out. i could not get my scanner to work. it would give a garbled sound and the mechanism that scans would not move. the status light would not light up and the preview was a black picture with nothing on it.
Summary: I was given this printer - New In Box, etc. so I can't complain about buying it. But there is no way I'd buy one myself. 1) The print quality - at any level - is noticably worse than other printers I have access to. 2) The cost of cartridges is stupidly high 3) The paper feed mechanism is hit-and-miss after only 1000 sheets 4) Now, after 6 months, it won't print. Period. It advances the paper and moves the heads around, but nothing hits the page.
Summary: The Lexmark X75 burns through ink. Worse, it is a cheaply manufactured product that breaks down after about two years of use. Specifically, it starts feeding multiple pages at once. The color functionality stopped working. Finally, if you own a Mac steer clear. Lexmark does not update the drivers and therefore you lose the diagnostics tools.
Summary: I liked my X75 at first - I love being able to scan and copy at home. BUT - I can no longer use it for any kind of printing. The paper jams have gotten totally out of control. You have to be extremely quick and straighten out each page at exactly the perfect split second to get an ALMOST straight printing job done. That's for ONE page. I have tried all weights of papers. I have reloaded the driver 4 times as requested.
Summary: Initially, this printer worked OK for scanning some friend's photos and printing out on photo paper for some cute little frames around the house. After a short time, however, this thing became more of a headache that it was worth. The paper is constantly jamming, tearing, crumping... you name it. The ink cartridges always need cleaning (which takes up a LOT of ink), and the quality quickly and obviously declines when choosing NORMAL over BETTER or BEST quality printing.
Summary: My husband and I bought this "all-in-one" printer a couple years ago for $129... After a few months the scanner stopped working, since we were still under warranty, we managed to have it replaced, however, I have to say that it is a really mediocre printer, the paper jams a lot, the printing is never even, the ink cartridges are very small, etc. Right now I am buying another printer and will keep this one as a scanner only, for as long as it will work (cross my fingers).
Summary: You can't get a better 3-in-1 printer/scanner/copier for this price. Of course, you can most definitely get a better 3-in-1 if you're willing to pay just a bit more. The Lexmark x75 is as mediocre as they come. The print resolution is sufficient for text documents, but less than good for graphics and pictures. The same can be said for the scanner function.
Summary: I've owned this printer for a year, and for awhile it was okay. It does a horrible job of printing pictures, but scanning and copying work good. Paper feeds crooked every time, and I'm not unfamiliar with printers. I tried everything to fix the silly thing. Now it won't feed paper at all. Unless you print daily, be prepared to "clean" the cartridges before you print.
Summary: it's good for the small size, quiet machinery and 3 in 1 function. That's ALL. I've had it for six months, and like the person from San Francisco, CA, i've tried everything to clean the print cartridges and it still won't print correctly. It was the first scanner/fax machine I had, so I thought those two functions were okay. But the printer is NOT worth the money. I had my HP Deskjet for years, while this one only works for... 6 months only.
Summary: I picked up this bad boy for a whoppin' $35. here's why I rate this 2 stars... Start with 5 stars 1. Like everyone else, this thing sucks in the paper like a turbo Hoover deluxe. The pickup roller assembly seems to be take paper from the right side before the left, therefore causing paper folds on virtualy every type of paper, from plain copy paper all the way to phpto quality glossy and even thicker paper as well. (4 stars left.) 2.
