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: 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.
Cons: for this printer, 'cause no cartridge comes as original black for this one. There is a type of cartridge for this printer but produces black by mixing several other pigments. It looks bad if you want to print someting black. Besides the printing quality sucks too. Dpi is obviously exaggerated
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: ...I don't know what the reviewing below is talking about. This printer prints black--we even printed our wedding address labels on vellum, and they came out just fine! ...and I'm a graphic designer by day, so I'm no slouch when it comes to gauging print quality!
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: 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: 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: This printer has one cartridge; not a black one, but 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.
