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. I've used remanufactured cartridges and refilled cartridges with this product as well and they work just fine. Over all, it's a good buy, can't beat the price.
Summary: great printer for a nice cheap price. this nice printer prints 15 ppm with a very good quality of even that wildest color printing. this printer works great andi s best for someone who doesnt use it alot or just needs one to use for family use, not really for printing 300 papers every day.
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. I put mine under my bed and just plug it into my USB port on my computer whenever I need it. Great buy.
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. In some ways, that's an enormous plus, it's simple to operate, and just as easy to own.
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. (See "Office 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. Hopefully I will get them in four or five business days. And yes, you do have to buy your own USB cable and ink.
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. The cost to operate it is so cost effective compared than other printers close to its price range. Last year my old faithful HP at my home office wore out so replaced it with a new HP All-in-One Printer, Scanner, and Copier.
