Summary: The LCD screen failed, and Lexmark gave us an estimate of >$800 to repair it! I took a chance and ordered a replacement "operator panel" for $75 from Lake Erie Systems, and figured out how to replace it myself in 10 min. I got lucky, that was all it needed but Lexmark was no help at all.
Summary: I bought this printer for work. It is less useful than a cheap laserjet. It takes forever to warm up to do a print job. It goes thru toner cartridges like a wino thru cheap wine -- it is NOT cheap on a per copy basis.
Summary: I've owned this printer for over a year and it prints fine. However, I bought it because I thought it would be economical over the long run. I am going from memory, but when I bought it I think the promotional material claimed 4,000 pages per black cartridge and overall cost 4 cents per page.
Summary: I would give it a zero if I could. We have had it for 3 yrs and strictly used it for personal use, so not heavy at all. It has now started giving all kinds of error messages. I contacted Lexmark and have chatted online and they just keep telling me to try replacing this part and that part.
Summary: Cons: Very Loud, Excessive ReCalibration, Deteriorating print quality after few use, Inability to handle glossy paper, expensive replacements, Very low toner from manufacturer. Overall expensive product not worth it at all.
Summary: Please do not buy this printer. I can't tell you how disappointed you will be. We bought 4 of these printers and I regret the day that we chose them. Out of the box it seems like a great printer. The first photos we printed were great.

Summary: This printer has a driver that allows you to specify where to source the print material from such as Multi-purpose feeder or maintray, and also specifiy the paper type which is required to avoid jamming for thicker paper stock.
Summary: I like Lexmark printers in general. I have a Lexmark Black and White laser one that has lasted for a long time. However, I've had this one for one month now and on the 200th print, I began getting the dreaded "black fog" all over the page that others have reported (basically a 5% black "wash" over...
Summary: This printer is a total piece of crap. You will burn through cartridges, deal with constant jams and spend a great deal of time trying to repair it. The Customer Service is awful as well. It also demands to take paper from the Manual Paper tray even when that is not selected anywhere.
