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 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: 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: Before I purchased the Lexmark Pro805, I trialled the Canon Pixma 870, HP Photosmart C309 and HP Officejet 6500. The Canon and HP printers involved a long and complicated setup compared to the Lexmark. The Pro805 setup was remarkably simple and straightforward, including setting up wireless mode. A major selling point for me was the fact the Lexmark Professional series still supports printing MS Word 97 documents, which certainly HP does not.
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
Summary: This was such a great purchase that I convinced a friend to buy one. Printing is very simple, and ink is very inexpensive. The scanner works like a dream, either from the computer or the printer. I had a minor problem at set up (mostly my own doing) and tech support was the best I have ever dealt with. Solved the problem immediately, and even assisted in setting up the wireless function. I haven't found a thing I don't like about this product.
