Very poor quality

NewStudent, Amazon
29 January 2010
  • Summary: I have the C522 version of this. It's pretty noisy, but I could live with that if it was a decent printer. It's NOT. The print quality on images started out OK, but very quickly degenerated: pictures are streaked and uneven. The mono text print quality is fine for every-day use, but it goes through periods of splatting flecks of colour onto the pages. However the real problem is its consumption of toner cartridges.

  • Excerpt: I thought I was getting good value when I bought this printer. then I found out that when they say "starter" cartridge, that is exactly what they mean! Although I am a very light user, the black toner ran out shortly after purchase and the colour toners soon thereafter. The replacement toners cost more than the printer. I note what a reviewer says about crippleware - although I believe you can buy a chip to get around this.

  • Excerpt: Totally trouble free network printing. Good quality even on photographs. First page printing could be slightly quicker but it churns out large reports at the listed rates. We have had no jams at all in the first 3000 pages so far. Consumables expensive but should be better when refills available. Network connection is easy through the software or if you set up through the panel.

Great, big printer!

moorejs, Ciao

  • Excerpt: A very good value-for money entry-level colour laser. I found this very easy to set up (with WinXP, via USB) and with good print quality for most purposes, such as newsletters and other desktop-publishing. Probably not quite the standard you'd want if you're a keen digital photographer and want large photo output, but then I haven't tried changing the default settings or using high-quality glossy paper.
  • Pros: Great value for money, good print quality, fast output
  • Cons: Big and heavy; starter cartridges don't last long

Don't touch Lexmark's crippleware printers

dllegal, Ciao
15 January 2007
  • Excerpt: Beware - although not mentioned anywhere in the paperwork, this printer has a hidden disable feature on all cartridges. Our cartridge was still printing fine and indicating toner despite its cripple ware (cripple-your-wallet-ware) showing replacement needed. Suddenly (despite previosu page printing perfectly), the printer cripples itself with no override forcing you to pay for a new very expensive cartridge.
  • Pros: Few if any in value terms
  • Cons: Has crippleware on cartridges which means you can't use all the toner

Disappointing black toner

gordy123, Ciao
6 October 2006
  • Excerpt: Although primarily delighted with the speed and quality of this well designed, reliable product. The speed at which the black toner cartridge ran out - nowhere near 4,000 sheets had been used, was disappointing, fortunately I did order a long-life spare as part of the deal. I have to say the price of the 'cheap' replacements from Lexmark and elsewhere are inclined to make you sit up and take notice.
  • Pros: Speed, quality and ease of use
  • Cons: tends to be quite noisy

Todo lo Lexmark me parece desechable.

Diastole69, Ciao
22 August 2006
  • Summary: Todas las impresoras de la marca lexmark desde mi propia experiencia, me parece que son desechables, ¿por qué? pues porque sirven una vez, mientras se terminan las tintas, una vez que se han agotado es un lío comprar los cartuchos, en las principales tiendas de consumibles no se encuentran, cuando uno los consigue por suerte, resulta que son tan caros que es más fácil comprar una impresora nueva de la misma marca.
  • Pros: Calidad
  • Cons: Desechable

Calidad y precios

fanguer, Ciao

  • Summary: Se trata de una gran impresora con una sola pega. A nivel de uso individual, claro. Si se trata de una empresa, la relación calidad precio es extraordinaria. Ahora bien, si se dispone de sufucientes recursos economicos y se puedes prescindir de mirar un poco el bolsillo, la elección es de lo más acertada, pues la gran calidad de la impresión, y la resolución de los colores compensa con creces el pequeño dispendio que puede suponer pagar unos euros de más por los...
  • Pros: Su gran calidad
  • Cons: El precio de los consumibles .
