Summary: I bought this printer on huge discount as part of an incentive package. I wish I hadn't. It has been a pain in my side since the very beginning. To wit: + Despite being a 3-in-1 printer, don't bother printing photos because they're HORRIBLE quality. It's useless to print photos with no matter what you try. + I've had to replace the print head twice and had to have a replacement ink cartridge sent to me by Lexmark once.
It will last if you are very careful every time you lift the cover.

Summary: Good printer with one major weakness - the plastic hinge pin that holds the top cover in place. If you lift the cover too much or too agressively, the two clips that hold the cover in place on the left rear, will break off and you can no longer put multiple copies through the multi-copy/scan/fax roller portion of the machine. It will still work on single copies placed directly on the glass. The hinge needs to be made out of metal instead of plastic.
Summary: Works great - nice to have a printer that's wireless. Easy to set up on all my computers. I've had no trouble with it and hope it will last as long as my other Lexmark printers (have 2 that still work but not with Windows 7 and had them for over 10 years)
Summary: This is one of the worst buy I made ever. Prints are not clear, it is uneven..I had this problem from the day I bought this, I called customer care and they sent me another cartridge , even that one has same issue I must have printed almost 20 pages until now. It is a complete wastage of my money Lexmark tech support is horrible. Other than some pre determined steps, they don't seems like knowing anything.
Summary: The printer works great! However, prior to purchasing it, I had been buying remanufactured ink from LD Products/4Inkjets for Hewlett Packard printers for many years. Lexmark designed the Prevail Pro705 to reject remanufactured ink. It damages the printhead, disables printing, and voids the warranty. A set of Lexmark printer cartridges costs more than I paid for the printer, and the ink does not last long enough.
Summary: This printer starts off great...great quality and everything as advertised. Then the printhead goes. I'm currently on my third printhead. Apparently there is some sort of defect in the printheads that Lexmark manufacturers, because they send them out free of charge to anyone with an issue. Don't waste your money on this one. UPDATE: Printer no longer works correctly wirelessly once my computer was upgraded to Windows 7. I will be purchasing a new printer...NOT A LEXMARK.
Summary: When my HP multifunction color laser printer died I did not want to purchase another large heavy monster of a machine. The Lexmark 705 has all the features I need to use in a small office environment with a smaller footprint. The software interface is more user friendly than past HP products I have purchased and I like the feature that allows me to share my voice line/answering machine with the fax.
Summary: Been using for about 2 months in a small home office. The printer has gotten a pretty good work out thus far and other than a couple of paper jams has performed well. I would recommend this as a personal or small business printer.
