Summary: Initial cost and operation are good. However, the color cartridges are RIDICULOUSLY expensive. You can spend more on 4 color cartridges than you did on the initial cost of the printer. The cartridges do not yield what they should for their cost.
warning - stops working entirely if any one cartridge runs out

Summary: If one of your colour toner cartridges runs out, the printer totally stops. Even if you have a full black cartridge and you only want to print black and white, you can't. Apparently this is in the user guide which of course no-one ever reads.

Summary: I bought this printer about 2 months ago since then I been trying to get it working, going back and forth with the Laxmark technical, finally they send me a new one and that is not working either.
Summary: I finally broke my pledge not to purchase another Lexmark printer after being stuck with a scanner/printer when they would not update the drivers. I thought they might have improved customer service.
Summary: Lexmark is aggressive in controlling the toner used in their printers. Only genuine cartridges work, and only for the predetermined number of pages. This is all fair enough - Lexmark is up-front about these restrictions. But the problem is that Lexmark hasn't implemented their strategy properly.
Summary: I have been working on it for two hours to get it to hook up with my Apple airport wireless. Last time I looked, this is 2014 and the Lexmark instructions were written for a systems administrator.
Summary: Ordered this because it is titled as a "wireless" printer. It's not. According to Lexmark, it's "wireless capable" (as is almost any printer after buying a WiFi print server. You have to purchase and add a wireless print server if you want to use your WiFi router to print. Very deceptive title.
