Summary: Not much I can say in this review since drewjohn609 covered it perfectly. I had been researching printers for literally years since it seemed like I was becoming a partner at Cannon due to the way their printers seemed to eat ink and the high cost of their ink. I procrastinated about the purchase because I was rather skeptical about buying what was to me an "off-market" brand, but after seeing the pros and cons of major brands such as HP through years of using them at...
Summary: This has got to be the 20th printer I've bought or used in my 30 yrs in business and this one is the most impressive. The setup and wireless worked smoothly as did all of the other setups. I just went through more than a 1000 pages of tax forms on eco mode and the black ink cartridge they provided is just running out. WOW! $4.95 less $3.00 return means cost per page of less than a 2/10ths of a penny a page.....
Summary: I just purchased the Lexmark Prestige Pro805 to replace my HP 6980. HP decided to not support the HP6980 (and numerous other HP printers) when Apple's Snow Leopard operating system came out. Lexmark is supporting their printers with Snow Leopard. It does take a while to set up the printer because the disk that comes with the Prestige Pro805 has old drivers on it. Remember to follow the directions that come on the disc.
Summary: This is the best little investment I've made! No Problems, easy setup for wireless. Prints in seconds, color looks great! I'm soo impressed. This is the first Lexmark printer I've owned and I'm so glad I took the leap and tried another brand. I'm speechless, actually...
Summary: I have used HP printers, scanners, and copiers at work and home for years. My wife needed another printer for her work. She had an HP, but we had quite a few problems with it, so I decided to look harder. I looked at Canon, HP, Brothers, and Lexmark. After reading the reviews and ratings, I decided to go with this Lexmark Pro805. Never had a Lexmark. Well, I am impressed!
Summary: I purchased this printer on January 3 from Amazon.com. I have had over 20 Lexmark printers in the past and havent had any problem with any of them. However, when I hooked this one up it wouldnt print. I called Lexmark Tech and they were on the phone with me for about an hour trying to get it to print but they were unable to help me. True to their word though they shipped me a new printer overnight and I got it the next day.
Summary: When I first attempted to set up the printer I spent 2 1/2 hours and still couldn't get it to work. I'm not a computer/ electronics whiz by any means but I have set up 8-9 printers over the years and usually don't have problems. Finally called tech support and spent well over an hour working with her to no avail, she set up an appt. to call me back after the weekend because she needed to look up some info. and find the correct firmware.
Summary: This is the best investment I've made in a printer and I like the five year warranty. No Problems, easy setup for wireless. Prints in seconds, color looks great! I'm super impressed. I have always used HP printers and this is the 1st Lexmark printer I've purchased. I'm so happy that I decided to try another brand.
Summary: Comments about Lexmark Prestige Pro805: Background Until now I have very much been an advocate of a well known printer brand beginning with 'E' for their image print quality. However like many users I am always looking for ways to reduce costs, and especially those associated with inks. I have ever only used brand inks in my printer bar once and realised the associated poor print quality and dirty print heads.
Pros: Easy Setup, Easy To Use, Fast Operation, Great Print Quality, Reliable
