Summary: If you're a busy person who just wants to print, fax, scan...etc. then avoid this POS printer and in my opinion, Lexmark in general, as this is 3rd printer I have had from them that has not been able to fulfill any of the promises they make on the box.
Pros: Lots of promises to scan, fax, print, wi-fi...etc. So if you like promises, I guess that's a pro., And apparently the price as my GF did, in fact, purchase the cheapest one she could find despite my advice against that.
Cons: 0 fulfilled promises., 1) No computer can ever seem to find the driver, so I have to manually install it every time., 2) Wi-fi has never worked and we've tried with 5 different computers of both Mac and PC
Summary: I won this off of eBay back in '08 and liked how it worked. I had a previous Lexmark All-In-One but I had trouble with the scan bed. My sister was able to get it to work but I needed another printer just in case. I saw this upgraded model and got it for only $30! Honest truth. Last month I needed to fax something and I tried to slide my printer out of the box. It slid out but the lid snapped open real hard. It scared me b/c I thought I broke it.
Summary: This is a great bargain! For the price I paid, I couldn't be happier. I bought this as a gift for my mom and she thinks I spent a lot more than I did. ;-) The wireless setup is super easy, and the print quality is great. The only issue I'm having is getting the fax to work properly. Fax setup is easy through the software provided with the system, but then faxes only make it through half the time. When I had a test fax sent, it took the sender three times to get through.
Summary: If you need some more stress in your life? this is the machine for you, if you want one that prints,scans copies and faxes Buy a Brother laser. I only print in Black @ White ..... when 75% of the ratings are 1 or 2 stars, and only C-Net folks rated it high should tell you volumes. if someone want this machine for free just pay shipping it's yours, but I'm not taking it back....
Pros: features if they worked as advertised, Warranted for 5 Years
Cons: Everything Lexmark sent me 3 different machines, as all has some kind of issues with Scanning, The scans looked nice until your go and print a pdf then prints @25% size only.The ink is costly and non Lexmark inks doesn't work.
Good printing quality and it's wireless capabilities.

Summary: I bought this product when my similar printer broke and I was really attached to it because of it's various capabilities. I also like it because it still uses 2 print cartridges unlike the newer models which has 4 and 5 cartridges which costs a lot more to maintain.
Summary: The simplicity and sharing ability of this all in one printer is fantastic. Printing, faxing, scanning - all easy. Setting up multiple computers to one printer via wi-fi couldn't be simpler. Of course, I own a Mac. I imagine that PC owners operating on Windblows will have the usual difficulties.
Summary: The paper always jams and crumples the pages. Power saver comes on and I don't get all my faxes. Can't find the faxes in memory. Eats ink like my kids go through milk-only milk is cheaper. Never, do we use it, without having a problem.
Summary: Beware of this product. Lexmark has put software on this printer that requires that you order ink cartridges from them when they run low. A window comes up that says, "Order Ink". Even if you click, "Continue Printing", the printer does not respond. I had 3 techs try to resolve the problem, and they all failed. This printer guzzles the ink. I ran out in 2 1/2 weeks of regular use.
Summary: I like that it is wireless. I have only had it few weeks, and it constantly gives me the message of low ink. Lexmark sent me ink twice, but it still does that.. So not sure technically its a good product.
