not the prettiest printer around, but gets job done well

Summary: This printer isn't the best looking printer around. It looks very boxy. However, the print quality is great for everyday use. The product prints fast, so even a printjob with many pages gets done in a good amount of time. Cartidges are widely available and not too expensive.
Summary: The person who wrote that it doesn't print in black is an idiot. I have this printer and it prints in just black fine. In fact that is all I usually use. The quality of it's photos are great. Great buy and is extremely small and can easily fit into small space.
Summary: Why would anyone want to buy a printer that cannot print black? This printer has one cartridge; a color one. If you want to print black, it squirts all 3 colors. Spend a few bucks more upfront to save from getting ripped off month-after-month in ink.
Summary: For people who don't print that often, or if you just need an extra printer, this is a great deal. As stated by other reviewers, the output isn't amazing, but it's fine for home-office use. This is very much a "you get what you pay for" sort of printer - no frills, no extras.
Summary: The poor dear gets flustered whenever I ask it to do something complicated, like print more than one page. It also sometimes forgets that it should print the whole page, not just the top half. It has no problem rapidly consuming ink, though. Will it make it to graduation day? Doubtful.
Summary: I just received the printer, but I can't use it because it is missing power cord and CD! I have always had very good experience buying computer stuff on Amazon so this is very surprising! So I called customer service at Lexmark and they said they will ship those out to me.
Summary: a good ink concept for easy print on documents, especially. However it did not go into my windows vista operating system, not yet anyway. It was not listed on my plug n' play for vista. It did go into my windows XP, with the install disc relatively problem free. Nice price too.
Summary: This printer is a great deal for the price. I needed a color printer for my office and said why not. Last year I bought a Lexmark All-in-One Printer, Scanner, and Copier for my daughter who is in college and she loves it.
Summary: I had the exact same printer previously and it worked fine. I had to finally replace it. I did so by buying the exact same printer. However, I have not been able to get working on the exact same computer. I tried it on someone elses computer and it worked just fine.
