Summary: For the four days I've owned this printer, it has done a great job printing for my home wireless network. This printer set up relatively easily for me; I connected it via cable to my wireless router (had to buy the router-connection cable separately). Once connected, the printer spat our a test page that included an IP address for the printer. Then I downloaded drivers for Vista 64-bit and XP, since I have two laptops.
Summary: An amazing printer for the money. I am in charge of technology in a high school and I have several of these printers in small offices with 5 - 10 users per printer. Easily networked and great for low to medium volume printing. They have held up so well I bought one for my home network and at under $150 it is a bargain.
Summary: I've only had this printer for less than a month, but it performs wonderfully. The text is crisp, and the printer is fast. I'm a technical writer, so it's not uncommon for me to print 200+ page documents. Even the graphics in grayscale look great. It's a huge improvement over my old, slow inkjet printer. Another great feature is the toner costs less than all the ink cartridges for my inkjet printer, and they last much longer. I'm still using the trial toner cartridge.
Summary: This is one a many light-duty personal laser printers in the market. The main advantages of this printer is that it's the only one in its class that can handle heavy cover-stock (67 lb.) and one of a few that has a network interface. Print quality is good and the printing speed is also good. Setup was easy for Macintosh but a bit more confusing for Windows XP. My main criticism is with the form factor.
Summary: I bought this printer a few months ago to replace my Brother HL-1440 which broke after 2 years and the replacement part was greater than the cost of a new Lexmark. I really liked my Brother. The Lexmark does several things well. It's fast. It works fine with Linux. It prints with very good quality. And it is NETWORK capable which is invaluable for the many houses and small offices with multiple PCs. I do have one complaint in two parts.
Excerpt: "...major problem for me, as Lexmark consumables are notoriously expensive. However, after reading up on it a bit, I find that Lexmark offer a 'Returns Program' toner, which is priced at a reasonable level, with the condition that the toner be sent back to them after use, presumably to compete with the likes of Cartridge World. As I have mentioned, the main requirement for me was that the printer supported Linux, and this one does. It also supports: - ...
Pros: Built - in network print server, fast printing, fairly low cost, support for Linux
Cons: Non - trivial, but not impossible, network installation under Windows XP
