"Prints great but lexmark screws you on cartridges."3.0 starson
Pros: I like the wireless and the speed of printing. We make lots of copies and it does that very well.
Cons: The Ink for this printer is hard to find AND non-refillable by ANYONE. I am very disappointed that they felt obligated to make life hard for normal people who are now REQUIRED to buy 30 and 50 dollar XL carts. as the little ones run out in ten pages.
Summary: Great printer from a greedy manufacturer. Not satisfied with well earned dominance in inexpensive quality printers, they made it so nobody can refill the ink in a bad economy. I was initially very happy with this unit but now I feel vaguely screwed. My old X1270 went bad and I went to the company I trusted to get a new one and they took my wallet hostage for new ink. Their "return program" sounds nice until you realize you are giving them YOUR cartridge an get nothing for it which they refill and proudly offer to SELL it back to you for FULL RETAIL VALUE. I went to the only store I have seen Cartridges in and bought XL carts for it as the dinky ones run out in less time than it took me to drive to the store to buy them. The XL carts are what we USED to call normal carts. Apparently "stiff the consumer" is Lexmark's new policy.
