Summary: The printer worked well after adding a photo-conductor kit and a toner cartridge, Neather were supplied with the printer. The toner cartridge wasn't a surprise, but the photo-conductor kit should have been in the printer already, as those are not in stock in most stores and if I didn't have an old printer handy for parts, would have been a problem.
Summary: Worked just fine for a time. However, there seems to be a problem with the printer driver, which repeatedly dies on my Windows 7 64bit computer. I have to reboot to get it to print again, which makes the printer useless. I have tried multiple different versions of the driver, including 64 bit versions, Postscript version, etc.
Summary: I really dislike this printer. No matter what I do with curling paper, pages always get crinkled in the process of duplex printing. Worse still, I keep getting jammed paper indications even though there's no paper jammed in it. Despite what one reviewer said, pushing the red x button does *not* always solve the problem. I've had this printer for a year and am getting rid of it. I wish I'd bought an HP in the first place.
Summary: Paper has a curl to it. Holding maybe 50 pages between your fingers, let it fall naturally and you should see it curling up a bit in one direction or the other. For the E260D (and most other printers) I have the curl facing up in the paper tray and that really reduces paper jams. Fanning the pages helps a lot, too. I have seen people scrounge up a few bent-up sheets and load it into the paper tray, and complain that their printer jams up a lot.
Summary: i have had this printer for several months now. frequent manually fed paper jams. does not print correctly sometimes with envelopes. however, what i hate the most is the constant power saving mode it goes into from time to time. i cannot disable this feature and have called tech support to try and resolve it. every time is goes into this power saver mode, the lights in the house flicker for a quick second. quite annoying.
Summary: "Get a product built to last with a 50,000 page duty cycle." Hah. It worked perfectly for about 25 thousand pages. Then the jams started. I'm up to about 34 thousand and it jams all the time. Nothing changed that I could tell, out of nowhere for no reason it just started jamming: I use the same paper, load it the same way as previously, but now it jams jams jams. It's like there's a built-in obsolescence point: 25 thousand pages, then kerblooey.
Summary: I have owned several Lexmark printers over the years and have always felt they were very dependable. However this model E260DN is one I wish I never purchased. The printer doesn't communicate with my computer (windows xp)all the time. Every week I have to first remove the printer drivers then reload my printer drivers from the CD. Maybe I just got a lemon this time. Still think I would give Lexmark another chance in the future.
