Summary: I purchased two Lexmark E210 Printers. The first one was not as described and I is currently under claim. I decided to buy another because I had a Lexmark E210 and I was happy with it and it lasted me along time until it buy another.
Summary: I purchased two of these printers at a discounted price ($100) about three years ago. THIS IS NOT A 19 PAGE PER MINUTE PRINTER!!! It will print at its fastest speed about 12 pages per minute on 8-1/2 by 11 paper. The first printer lasted about 30,000 pages and only needs a minor repair. I bought several cartridges ($75-85.00 ea.) before I discovered the cheap cartridge refills on ebay.
Excellent laser printer for the home or small office

Summary: I got one Lexmark E210 two years ago...It was refurbished by Lexmark. It came in brand new box and looks like brand new except the little label that says it is refurbished by Lexmark. ... I think Lexmark did a good job on this one. I have been using this one all this time with an average of 500 page per month (last six month I'm using it for almost 1000 pages/month )..Never had a problem... Just a little thing to mention I had a paper jam one or twice.
Great Laser printer -- especially or the price!!!!

Summary: the comments below are from a famous shopping discussion forum, not my personal opinion: 1. Very fast, nice; 2. I finally got a laser printer. It is damn fast compared to my inkjet..... Takes up less space on my desk than the inkjet; 3. it's great so far. Much faster than my poor 4ppm printer. Although I miss the LCD display that gives a bit more information than the three blinking LEDs; 4. Printed about 600+ pages so far and the toner still print out pretty good; 5.
Summary: I owned this printer for over 2 years now and I had NO paper jams for at least a year. Very reliable, nice print quality, sharp text and images. When the printer power's supply went bed in the first year Lexmark sent me promptly a replacement printer which I still have it now. Great customer service. On the toner/ink side. Original toner is quite expensive (around $70/cartridge), better go online and buy it on ebay.
Summary: this is a great printer. Its printing quality is really good (specially if u consider its price). And i just like laser's sooo much more than those inkjets. Although its B&W, the quality of printouts is really worth it ! Shop around though, I got this printer from Staples for 150$.
Summary: Don't get this printer. Yes, the printer is inexpensive. But the toner cartridges are expensive and you'll pay for it in the long run. The Lexmark website says the toner cartridge is good for 2000 sheets at 5% page coverage (at $100/cartridge, that's 5 cents/sheet). Don't believe it. My wife gets maybe five hundred pages printed (just double-spaced typing) before parts of the page starts fading (so we're paying 20 cents/sheet).
Summary: I bought this printer and so far, I have not had a single problem. I was so sick and tired of my ink jet printer cartridge getting clogged up after not using it for a couple of days that I had to make a switch to laser. It takes about 10 seconds to warm up, but after that it prints very quick. It prints black text perfect, with all fonts nice and dark. It even has the option of placing a watermark on the paper. Labels and envelopes print good too, with no jamming.
